Yes, but is it regionally appropriate????
For someone who is local – absolutely!
Here in RI us locals enjoy Thai Food, Taco’s, BBQ, Burgers, pulled pork mac n cheese, ban mi that’s “eating like a local” here in RI. We leave the hot weiners to the drunk, out of town college kids, pizza strips to gramma and grampa and the clam shacks to the tourists.
That’s weird. When I lived in RI, as a kid we ate pizza, Italian, clam cakes, Johnny Cakes, hot weiners and all sorts of local delights. Sad to hear they’ve fallen by the wayside. Probably just another case of too many out of staters moving in.
