What is Alaska or Anchorage known for? What must I eat or experience? I will be in Anchorage in November. I am a chowhound from Seattle. I love seafood, but the person I am visiting does not. Whenever I travel to a city or area I like to try the foods that are specific to or specialized in that location (ex. frozen custard, toasted ravioli, emo's style pizza in St, Louis). I have read about reindeer sausage and excellent seafood so far in my web query and by reading the other boards. I will be in Anchorage a Friday through a Tuesday if that helps. Dives, hidden treasures, things to bring back to Seattle, local grocery items, etc.- any suggestion works. Cheap steals to mid-upper price range ok when discussing places to eat- I am a teacher that likes splurging once in a while. Thanks in advance for the help!
