Terrence Henry is a freelance writer living in
Austin, Texas. In January 2009, he and his wife embarked on a food tour
of Argentina, Spain, Italy, England, Canada, and the United States. Some 13 months later he settled in Austin, where he is now learning
the art of Texas barbecue and writing about food and film.
It has been quiet on our food tour as of late, and apologies for that. We are taking some time to enjoy the Rockies and rough it a bit in the great outdoors. This means very little (if any) Internet access through the end of August, so posting will be light. But we still need your help on finding the country's culinary best along the way.
The next stop on our American Food Tour is St. Louis, home to puzzling pizza, cool custard, and the king of (evil) beers, Anheuser-Busch. And with your help, I'm sure we'll find some good things to eat and drink under the arch this week.
Why Indianapolis, a place that doesn't exactly scream "culinary hotspot?" For starters, we have some family to visit. But we also carry hope that we'll find something that surprises us. And with your help, I'm sure we will.
I've heard before that while Philly is known for its cheesesteaks, the real prize here is the roast pork sandwich, topped with provolone and broccoli rabe, so for our second Philly poll we're asking you to vote on the best roast pork sandwich in town.
Our time in Manhattan has ended, and we're now in Philly for the week. It might seem obvious to do a poll on the best cheesesteaks in town, but there seems to be a lot of debate on which one is truly the best. Vote in our new poll and help us pick a winner.
What to eat in Boston? The smoked beef tongue at The Hungry Mother is tempting, as is the "Hot Dog a la Maison" at The Butcher Shop. Or is it better to go with reader achenglovefood's suggestion of Oleana, and try the octopus ragu? Perhaps Rendezvous? Or some raw bar at B&G? Help us decide by voting in our latest poll.
