Chef, author and award-winning TV personality and host of Bizarre Foods America, Andrew Zimmern, kicks off the new season of Bizarre Foods America tonight at 9|8c. Andrew first stop: New Jersey! Don’t worry, there is plenty of bizarre, “gross” and outrageously delicious things to eat in Jersey.
Andrew begins with a tour of LaMonica Fine Foods, a fourth-generation Italian-American family business, where they process fresh shellfish, like scungilli, a traditional Italian food made from conch.
Did you know there’s a large population of immigrants from the Philippines in New Jersey? Andrew visits Little Manila to check out Phil-Am Foods, the largest Filipino-owned grocery store on the East Coast.
Remember the days of eating ramen noodles during late-night study breaks in college? Well, take a trip down memory lane when Andrew visits Sun Noodle in Teterboro, NJ, a ramen lab where he finds out how much work it takes to make real ramen.
And who doesn’t love breakfast? Toward the end of his New Jersey visit, Andrew samples a breakfast favorite at Wonder Bagels: an egg sandwich made with a Taylor pork roll. A not-to-miss breakfast item!
