It’s a fairly safe bet that if you’re hungry for a particular dish from your home country, you’ll be able to find it in the cultural fondue pot that is the United States. But does that mean immigrants never get homesick for a particular morsel or ingredient? I hit the streets of downtown Los Angeles to ask some foreign-born folks about what they miss most from their native cuisine.

What lengths would you go to get your favorite food? How much would you spend for a taste of home? Leave a comment for us below and let us know about the dish you miss most.
