Growing up in Hamilton, Ontario (about an hour from Toronto), there isn't much to miss about the food back home.
One guilty pleasure, though, is the nachos you can find at every one of the dozens of generic sports bars in the area. Nachos generally arrive heaped on a plate, covered in jalepenos, chili or shredded chicken (or both), sometimes sliced black olives, topped with shredded (NOT liquid) cheese. The whole mess gets stuck under a broiler until the cheese on top melts / browns. Small dishes of salsa and sour cream always accompany the nachos.
Anyone found anything similar in the city? Queens/Brooklyn is just fine too. Bonus points to anyone who knows of anywhere that has video trivia (the bar game using the wireless keyboards you can play from your table - very popular in Canada / the midwest).
