I am just curious as to what sorts of foods are traditional or originals in the cities/areas you live in or have lived?  Many know here in Buffalo we have chicken wings, our own style pizza, subs, char broiled hot dogs, beef on weck sandwiches, and fish fries.  Polish, Greek, and Italian foods are also very popular here.  When I lived in San Diego it was basically Mexican food and damned good!

I would say the most traditional food in WI are:

CHEESE
Cheese curds...I have to add that there are 2 styles of cheese curds...fresh and fried. WI has the best of both.
Beer and cheese soup
Cow pie's (its a WI candy if you don't know...most amazing thing ever)
Brats (specifically beer brats)
German food...like german potato pancakes
Fish Fry is a HUGE thing here
Spatzel
Polish sausage
Dairy products
Jerky
Sausage
POUTINE.....My favorite
Burgers
Beer
Wine
asparagus (grows wild here)
cranberries

To sum WI foods up....if you can grill it, make it from milk, grow it, pick it growing in ditches, catch it, shoot it, add beer in any way shape or form...thats what we eat! ;)

In WI Dells you can find just about anything you could imagine within a few miles. Lots of beer brewery's and pizza parlors.

Food carts are a big thing in Portland.
And obviously there are a crazy amount of coffee shops...
By the way, Portland is home to the amazing Bacon Maple doughnut!!! Which I haven't actually tried because I don't like meat. One of the big tourist attractions is Voodoo Doughnuts. They stopped selling the Nyquil doughnuts ( sadbigeye ) but there's still a lot of weird doughnuts there.
