Of the seven (Buffalo Wings, Peking Duck, Yorkshire Pudding, Salad Niçoise, Nanaimo Bars, Mole Poblano and Singapore Chili Crab) I've eaten only two: I've already professed my love for Yorkshire Pudding, and the Anchor Bar, home of the original Buffalo wings, is just a drive away from my Mum's home in NY. Of course, they all sound delicious - particularly the Peking duck and chili crab!

Brussels Sprouts (what do these have to do with Belgium, I wonder?)
Brazil Nuts (which, interestingly, are called Para nuts - another geographical name - in Brazil!)
Maryland Crab Cakes
...and that's just off the top of my head!

Though I may not have done too well with Lonely Planet's list, it turns out that I'm far more familiar with global foods than I thought! How well traveled is your palate? Do you have a favorite geographically-named food that I've left off the list? Any name you're just dying to know the origin of? I'd love to do more research on the subject, so if you're curious, just leave a line in the comments!
