Each region has its own specialty. NYC pizza is
pretty awesome. In Houston, it's fusion food, randomly. You'd think it would be something Southwestern, but yeah. Houston prides itself on being super-multicultural, so we end up with a lot of restaurants that do weird fusions of things. For example, there's an Indian-Thai fusion place at the end of my road, right across from a Japanese grocery store and a Tuscan bakery. Random.
