I had a funny discussion at work and we got talking about foods. I said I'd like to get some hotcakes and a biscuit for breakfast one morning and the folks there thought I had three heads for saying "hotcake" instead of pancakes. Which leads me to what this post it. What are the regional names for everyday foods in your area? I'm from the North Eastern part of the US, if helps you figure out where I got these names at.
Examples would be,
For a long sandwitch- Hoagie, grinder, hero
Pancakes- hotcakes, hoecakes
Soda- Soda, pop, etc
Sorry most of these are American terms, but I'm curious as to what the world calls these items as well or any other foods.
