The Food Network recently announced their list of “most iconic foods in all 50 states.” A thorough list of iconic foods were provided for each state, including 28 different recommendations for Wyoming. Ultimately though, only one dish was announced as the “most iconic.”
Drum roll please…
Wyoming’s most iconic – The fry bread at the Shoshone Rose Casino & Hotel’s Deka-Guy-Hee Restaurant.
The Food Network describes,
In Lander, Deka-Guy Hee (Shoshone for “The Eating House”) at Shoshone Rose Casino and Hotel gives guests a taste of the state’s American Indian heritage via Fry Bread, a popular Indian taco dish. The platter is like a taco salad, but it features housemade fry bread instead of a taco shell. The fry bread serves as a palatable landing for cheese, lettuce, tomatoes and ground taco meat.
When it comes to game meat, buffalo is often the first thing people turn to, but elk is also a staple throughout Wyoming. Cowboy Cafe in Dubois is a no-frills Western-style restaurant that’s satisfied local appetites for breakfast, lunch and dinner since 1993. You can expand your meat repertoire with the Wild Game Platter, featuring spicy elk sausage, smoked bison, grilled onions and vegetables.
