Maps of a state’s favorite or most well-known food are nothing new (Idaho is indeed known for its finger steaks, according to a poll from the Cooking Channel). The data was gathered by the Hater application, a new dating service that matches people based on their dislikes. The food consists of dumplings, buns and rolled noodles, among other things.

Dim sum is, in simple terms, a Chinese version of tapas: customers sit down, drink tea and choose the food they want to, which is traditionally carted around the restaurant.

Hater, which launched in February, matches you with people who hate the same things you do, based on the idea that "mutual dislikes can bring people closer than their shared interests." On the app, users can swipe in four directions — down to hate, up to love, left to dislike, and right to like — on about 3,000 different topics ranging from cilantro to slow walkers.
