5@5 is a daily, food-related list from chefs, writers, political pundits, musicians, actors, and all manner of opinionated people from around the globe.

Many of us grew up eating out-of-the-can refried goop beans and microwaveable taquitos thinking that was just about it for the culinary traditions on the other side of the border.

With roots in Monterrey, Mexico, Chef Julieta Ballesteros of Crema and Los Feliz knows better than that.

CNN Money is in search of the Best Places to Eat in America, and they're asking readers to share their favorite hometown dishes and explain why they're so loved.

iReporter Natalie Montanaro is a Rhode Island native, but she spends her time in rural Romania teaching English and introducing other projects. Between trips, she likes to come back and savor the flavors of her home state.

In her iReport "Clam Cakes and 'Chowda'", she extolled the culinary delights of the nation's smallest state, writing. "You can't beat the taste of Rhode Island when it comes to seafood, and as kids we all couldn't wait to dive into the clam cakes and chowder here after a day at the beach. Salty's Landing is new here at Galilee, but it's one of the best in the state for that crunchy/creamy combination I've loved since the old days."

No one is agnostic when it comes to mayonnaise. Ketchup, mustard, relish - people may have their brand or recipe preferences, but rarely do those condiments elicit anything like the passionate partisanship or disgust that mayo does.

Go on - stroll up to a klatsch of co-workers or into the midst of a bar throng and say "mayonnaise." A few folks will just think you're being weird (and granted, you are), but take note of who physically recoils at the mention and who starts waxing rhapsodic about their favorite brand or recipe.

The owner of a south Philadelphia cheesesteak shop who once instructed customers to order only in English has died, according to to relatives.

Joey Vento had a heart attack at home and died Tuesday on the way to the hospital, said Joseph Perno, his nephew and manager of the shop.

"Things are a little somber tonight," Perno told CNN affiliate KYW behind the grill at Geno's. "But he's in our hearts."

Vento founded Geno's in 1966 in Philadelphia, where it sits across the street from another cheesesteak shop, Pat's King of Steaks.
