    If we're talking about beverages, I've had a Singapore Sling in Singapore and a Cuba Libre in Cuba.

    I lived in the suburbs for 4 years and the authentic Philly Cheesesteak (and local Pizza) are far beyond any place else's!

    Here in England people eat more (American) muffins than English ones. Except we tend to just call both of them just muffins. One type tends to be blueberry or chocolate and the other usually comes in a packet from the supermarket.

    And why are french fries called pomme frites in their 'native land' and merely chips in the UK (which then bumps our chips over to crisps!)?
    Is German Chocolate Cake just, 'our chocolate cake' over there?
    Is Canadian bacon just ham here?
    Is a kielbasa sausage 'sausage sausage' in Poland?
    Do only Hungarian cowboys eat goulash?
    Was a white Russian first made in the Caucasian Mountains?

    I think I've had Russian dressing in Russia, but I don't think they call it that there. I know i've had Thousand Island dressing (pretty much the same thing) in a restaurant overlooking the Thousand Islands in upstate New York. French dressing in France. Again, they don't call it that. Ditto Italian dressing in Italy.
