Miss Info investigates how the Jamaican beef patty became a NYC icon. As the flaky meat turnover has infiltrated all aspects of city life—found in mom-and-pop bakeries, bodegas, pizza shops, and even street carts—the patty itself has inspired fierce debate. Because if you think a patty is a patty is a patty...well, you're dead wrong. From heated conversations with DJ Clark Kent, to philosophical musings in the back of a Rolls Royce with Upscale Vandal, here are what New Yorkers really have to say about the beef patty.
Miss Info heads to Washington D.C. to find out about the city's regional specialty, mumbo sauce. Whether you like yours dark-red or orange, tangy or peppery, mumbo is at the core of D.C.'s subculture. But as the city undergoes gentrification, will mumbo sauce retain its vitality? We spoke to Wale, Shy Glizzy, Kokayi, and Tony Lewis Jr. to find out what the future holds for the city's special sauce.
Forty years ago, Vietnamese migration to NOLA introduced bánh mì to po' boy country. Now, the lines between two iconic sandwiches are blurring. To find out what happens when you mash up the Mississippi Delta and the Mekong Delta, we spoke to New Orleans legend Curren$y, Times-Picayune writer Brett Anderson, and Banh Mi Boys chef Peter Nguyen.
Miss Info heads to Atlanta, a city that takes pride in its strip clubs, hip-hop, and wing culture. But talk to locals and you'll quickly learn that one wing stands above the rest—lemon pepper. Natives have fiercely claimed lemon pepper as their own, turning it into an icon that's been referenced in rap lyrics, television, and pop-culture. To find out why so many people have fallen under its spell, we head to strip clubs like Magic City, taste-test wings in backyard parties with Rembert Browne, and talk to some of lemon pepper's biggest supporters, Waka Flocka, Rick Ross, and Donald Glover.
