The waffle cone was invented in Norfolk,Va.

I thought it was in St. Louis during the 1906 (?) World's Fair. An ice cream vendor ran out of bowls and tried using a rolled up waffle to hold the ice cream.

Doumar's, on Monticello Avenue in Norfolk claims that Abe Doumar invented the ice cream cone...at the St. Louis World Exposition in 1904. Therefore, both claims are apparently valid.

While it certainly doesn't taste good, it is very famous in my area:

Lutefisk (Codfish that has been soaked in lye for about a week, and then boiled to a gelatiny goodness. Served with mustard. BLEH! Christmas dish)

Lefse (Scandinavian flatbread. Very tasty warm with butter and sugar, rolled up. Traditional at Christmas.)

Swedish meatballs (Also a Christmas dish. Every grandmother has her own recipe.)

And, more of a Minnesota favorite, but famous locally too: (made with wild rice harvested from local lakes.)

Wildrice soup:

Atlanta's got a lot of soud food and barbecue in the Sweet Auburn area.

I think it could also be argued that the standard naked dog or burger could have a significant stake in our city with the main Varsity being located there.
