"Easy access to Coney Island. There isn’t a single one here. People looked at me dumbfounded when I first moved here and asked about them."
-- James H., Ohio
"I miss local potato chips -- Ray's, Better Made, Downey's, Garden Fresh (and their salsa)."
-- Amy R., California
"Custard paczki on Paczki Day and people who know what Paczki Day is."
-- Nicole R., Nevada
"There is no shawarma here in Minnesota, and the fact that Detroit has attracted so many different immigrant populations over the years has given it more variety than we realized... I miss the fact that you could get a gyro and lemon rice soup at ANY diner in the metro region."
-- Hannah P., Minnesota
"The only food I miss -- and the only one I make a point to get back to when I'm back in Detroit, is the shawarma from Bucharest Grill. Montreal has some of the best food on the planet and lots of shawarma, but nothing like what Bucharest Grill does."
-- Baron C., Montreal
"Fresh and cheap perch/whitefish/etc. (and its varieties like chowder and dip spread)."
-- Haley B., New York
"Coneys -- not just the food but the restaurants... and good diners in general. OH AND SAGANAKI. I would kill for that flaming cheese here in DC."
-- Lauren M., Washington DC
