New Yorkers love their avocado toast. Kentuckians crave country ham. Indianans apparently have an abiding love for lemon rice soup. (Pucker up and slurp.) And Californians, it seems, cannot get enough Chinese chicken salad.

What’s the most-popular food in your state? Foursquare has come up with an interactive map of the most-popular food and drink in every U.S. state (plus the District of Columbia, where a lot of people are seriously into Ethiopian food). The mobile app’s data crunchers factored in menus, tips, ratings and other criteria, and then teamed up with Mapbox to turn it into a clickable state-by-state guide to the particular taste preferences of each and every state. The map also includes information about the best places to eat a state’s favorite food.

So now you know where in Wyoming you should head for some elk (Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, in Teton Village), according to Foursquare data, not to mention the best place in New Mexico to score some sopapillas (La Choza in Santa Fe).

And if you don’t feel like heading to NYC for your avocado toast, here’s a tasty recipe so you can enjoy it without leaving your own home.
