I've been in NoVA since 2006 (moved from Massachusetts) and one thing is pretty evident: very few of us are actually from here. What are some of your favorite hometown foods that you'd like to see in the area? For me, it's Chinese food. I'm not saying it doesn't exist here, but I'm unsuccessful in finding really good Chinese. I've been to Yen's, Cheng's and lots of other places in NoVA, but the food seems like it's all the same to me. Items I miss: chicken fingers, beef teriyaki (big hunks of flavor, not flat tastless meat on a stick), Peking ravioli (they're friend dumplings, but bigger), freshly-made crab rangoons (with lots of crab inside) and homemade duck sauce -- I never fail to be disappointed when I ask for duck sauce and I get a plastic packet of bland orange sauce. Every time I see or hear of a new Chinese restaurant opening, I get a little excited... only to find that it's exactly like the last Chinese place I ate. Another one for me: baked beans on a breakfast menu -- anywhere. I realize this is a northeast thing, but I sure do miss it.
