Pennsylvania – 19870 Miles Driven.
I couldn’t go to Philly and not eat a Philly. Cheesesteak that is. Owing to the influx of Italian immigrants in the early 20th century Philadelphia is also home to another popular sandwich, the roast pork. Of course I had to try both. more “DiNic’s Roast Pork & John’s Roast Pork”

Atlantic City is a destination often cast in harsh light, whether that be for its widely documented economic decline or that it plays second fiddle to Las Vegas. What it lacks in glitz and casinos that haven’t gone out of business, it more than makes up for with a pretty impressive boardwalk, buckets and spadefuls of character, and some rather splendid sandwiches. more “White House Subs & Tony Boloney’s”
New York – 19612 Miles Driven.
New York City is one of a few places where you can truly live a 24-hour existence, and where you can eat a wealth of great food and spend relatively little for the privilege. I but scraped the surface of what culinary treats this great city has to offer, but I definitely found a few.

Driving down the coast of Connecticut took me through the city of New Haven. It’s a city famed for being the home to Yale, one of America’s most prestigious universities. It also has its very own style of pizza of the same name referred to locally as apizza, and its most famous topping? Well that would be clams, and Zuppardi’s Apizza is regarded as serving some of the best. more “Zuppardi’s Apizza”

I’ve eaten at a few restaurants that pride themselves on promoting farm to table dining, not too many that offer pond to plate, and none that do both. That changed when I visited Matunuck Oyster Bar. more “Matunuck Oyster Bar”

Lobster rolls were following me down the North Eastern coast of America. I spent time with a lobster fisherman in Maine and subsequently attempted to make my own lobster rolls, which were good but possibly not the best. I wanted to see how the professionals made them. The second lobster roll of my trip came courtesy of Ida Mae’s Deli in the state of New Hampshire. more “Ida Mae’s Deli”
Maine – 18369 Miles Driven.
Lobster fishing is big business in the sate of Maine; half of American lobsters are caught in its waters. There’s never been a better time to be a lobster fisherman, and I had the absolute privilege of spending time with one of them. more “Maine Lobster”

Canadian maple syrup accounts for 75% of the worlds supply. The 6% that Vermont produces may be tiny compared to Canada, but it’s the largest maple syrup producing state in the United States. Morse Farm Maple Sugarworks is one of its many producers. more “Morse Farm Maple Sugarworks”
