This is a British restaurant. If you're known across the pond for a dish, it might be time to make it official.

Kansas has never declared an official state food, and Missouri has only an official state fruit and dessert (the Norton grape and the ice-cream cone), so Yum Sugar has decided to fill in the gaps with its '50 Iconic American Foods from A to Z.' The foodie site has declared fried chicken the state food of Kansas and Kansas City barbecue as the representative for all of Missouri. On some level, it's just nice to know that Missouri residents are having something between their wine and ice cream.

Do you think it's a fair representation of what the states have to offer? Or if you were playing state legislator or convention association employee, would you designate another cuisine as the official state food of Kansas or Missouri?
