I spent this past weekend with my family back home in Jersey to see my little sisters spring musical. It was The Little Mermaid and she was one of the eels. Despite being sick she killed it – awesome job Nina!
Besides going to see the play we had another thing on the agenda: hit up as many of my favorite North Jersey food stops in 24 hours as possible. It is safe to say I officially feel gross and I am ready to get back on track today – after I finish this bagel.
When we arrived we started off having lunch at my all time favorite pizza place – Rose’s Pizza in Garfield. They have THE BEST Sicilian pie you will ever have. Also their Eggplant Parm is incredible and their sandwiches are so fresh and so big. If you are in the area you have to stop in. Order a Sicilian Pie – well done, sixteen slices. And don’t worry the leftovers are just as good.
After the play we had to hit up White Castle. My boyfriend had never been so for his first time in North Jersey I skipped out on White Manna and went for some Murder Burgers. Fries, Onion Rings, Chicken Rings, Sliders, Chicken Breast Sliders, Mozzarella Sticks… OH. MY. GOD. Do I regret it? Maybe. Would I do it again? Probably.
The next morning we had to take a quick trip before breakfast to get a dozen bagels from Fairlawn Bagel to bring back to Jersey. I got a mix of Everything, Sesame, and a couple Cinnamon Raisin. Next time I am taking a page out of my cousins book and getting a dozen Everything Bagels.
After the bagel pit stop we had to hit up a Jersey Diner for Breakfast. We hit up the Cit Chat Diner in Lodi, and had some awesome breakfast food and even more laughs. I absolutely love when all of my cousins are together. After the diner we had to stop in at a Wawa and get some beverages for the road.
The last stop on the way home was at Shake Shack for lunch. Now I have never had In and Out and I know there is a big debate between which one is better, but Shake Shack burgers are so incredibly flavorful. And the cheese fries are on point. Oh, and the shakes. My burger was a little too rare for my liking, but by the time I finished my fries I was so full I could not move.
We finished the journey home half dead in a food coma, and then immediately got into bed. I am very VERY ready for some lemon water and a nice salad for lunch today. How was your weekend?
