Aol’s travel site has put together a compilation of 7 regional dishes that most non-locals have never even heard about. Topping the list was cioppino, a fish stew, and asserted local San Francisco favorite. Really?

As Rebecca Dolan writes, “Philadelphia has cheesesteaks, Chicago lays claim to the deep dish pizza, and Boston serves up some of the most recognizable chowder around. But, have you ever heard of coffee milk or Polish boys? Here we take a look at some lesser known U.S. regional food specialties.”

There’s benne wafers from South Carolina, half smokes from Washington, D.C. and coffee milks in Rhode Island.

For the full list, go here.
