Stranger In a Strange Land

New Daily Post:

Think about the town where you currently live: its local customs, traditions, and hangouts, its slang. What would be the strangest thing about this place for a first-time visitor?

For someone new to Cincinnati, the weirdest thing about this place off the top of my head would be this:

chili speg

Chili spaghetti!

Every time I’ve mentioned chili spaghetti to someone outside of Cincinnati, they look at me like I’m a dumbass.

“So it’s chili?”

“No, it’s chili spaghetti.”

“I don’t know what you’re saying.”

“It’s spaghetti with chili on top of it.”

“I don’t know what you’re saying.”

They just need to try it. The most famous Cincinnati place is Skyline, but I know others actually prefer Gold Star. I’m personally a Skyline guy through and through. I’d eat it every day if I didn’t want to be 300 lbs and poor (er).

Gold Star
