Some 8,000 miles later, and we have finally reached the Pacific. We have a few days in Vancouver, which I fear isn't enough, but it's at least something.
After an unplanned detour, the author declares the city a must-visit for any serious lover of ice cream.
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.
One month into his food tour, the author samples Kansas City's legendary burnt ends, ribs, and pulled pork.
Since it's impossible to come up with an answer on who makes Colorado's best beer, perhaps with your help we can decide which brewery is a must-visit.
Coming up, a day in Kansas City, before a long push west. The question before us is a dilemma I'm grateful for: Which legendary barbecue joint do we visit?
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.
We're in the mood for some 'cue today. Vote in our "Bar-B-Q in Louisville" poll and help us decide which place we must try.
The author tried Schwartz's in Montreal and Katz's in New York within a week of each other. One was superior.
What to do with a few days in Cincinnati? A poll on the best place to have just one bowl of chili.
Farewell, Philly, land of roast pork sandwiches and cheesesteaks; Hello, Pittsburgh. We're thirsty this time around, and need your help deciding which beer bars and brewpubs in town are worth a visit.
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.
For just under $30, the author got to have lunch at a three-star restaurant in New York City. The best deal in town? Absolutely.
Stopping in Manhattan on his American Food Tour, the author seeks out the city's best prix fixe lunch.
In the event we'll wake up hungry tomorrow (which rarely happens on a food tour, but you never know), I thought it'd be fun to do a poll on the best bakeries in Boston (it seems there are many).
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.
Poutine--a dish made of fries, cheese curds, and gravy--doesn't always taste like it's going to kill you.
Had I planned this all out better, we would probably be spending a few days in Portland instead of just 24 hours. But that's all the time we have, so help us decide where to go in our new poll.
