It's our first trip back "up North" in 3 years after moving to FL... We are excited and hungry for real food and anxious for that first taste of home. I've been checking around these boards and have a tiny list. But I'm getting overwhelmed with choices.
We = husband and me.
Will be in Somerset and can (and will) go anywhere for something tasty.
We are NOT foo-foo and really miss:
normal pizza!
normal Chinese !
walking into a pork store and just inhaling the smells for a few desperate seconds
eating after 9pm (there is nothing open 24hrs here except Walmart!)
not getting a funny look for calling it "gravy" when it's not brown!
Could care less if the napkins are cloth or who speaks what language in the kitchen.
Name me one place you go when you want what you can get "only in Jersey" .
