These 8 Unusual Meals Are Just Another Dinner To A South Dakotan
South Dakota has a rich, interesting history that contributes heavily to our dining culture. Many traditional Native American dishes are common here, and German and Scandinavian immigrants brought their favorite recipes with them when they came to the Dakotas in the 1800s. Combine all that cultural influence with a strong helping of good, old fashioned self-reliance, and you get some unique meal offerings.
Of course, most (or all) of these meals won’t seem strange to you at all, and you’ll likely encounter them in other nearby states. But people in some parts of the country don’t get to enjoy these meals.
