a jersey shore boardwalk food tour ............. the flavors of the jersey shore !!!! Mon, 07/25/11 1:15 PM (permalink)
been some chatter about the food  offerings on the jersey shore boardwalks , i'm thinking a food tour to a boardwalk , exploring the offerings of that boardwalk , then in the end we can determine the best jersey boardwalk eat's !!! thinking it would have to be a boardwalk , some of jersey shore towns do not have a boardwalk or offerings of  food on the beach line, but, do offer on the street line . it has to be a wood walkway....
 
some of my thought's :
 
1. Keansburg
2. Point Pleasant 
3. Long Branch
4. Asbury Park
5. Wildwood
6. Seaside Height's / Park
7. Cape May 
8. Ocean City 
9. help me fill in the blanks   
i think it could touch so many bases , hamburger , hot dog, pizza , seafood , ice cream and candy  and so many more treat's of the summer shore scene........

    Ocean City, NJ has one of the best boardwalks around.  Mack and Manco's pizza alone makes it worth a visit.

      Ahh, Wildwood. I met the first Mrs. Twinwillow there in 1964.

          a trip to Marucas Pizza on the Seaside boardwalk makes any trip to Seaside worthwhile...also visit the Midway steakhouse for a classic sausage pepper and onion ,kohrs custard, and the infamous Beachcomber not because its where Snooky  got Snookered but instead to have a plate of clams on a picinic table on a pier over the breaking waves  ..only a hint of what  is in and around  Seaside

            WOW, I lived in Keansburg from 1972- 1988. I was raised on the Boardwalk, I live a street away from it, I Know the area has changed alot, I visit my sister every 2 years and always find my way back there, the stories i could tell. The Pavillion comes to mind and so does the Zepley "?" stand. I have also visited the other choices but nothing memorable.

                  I remember eating zeppoles when I was a little girl.
                  The hot dough  in the paper bag with powdered sugar-
                  We used to spend a week or two every summer in Margate or Lavalette.
                  The only thing that comes close are New Orleans Beignets...
                  Ummm 
                  Thanks for a nice trip down memory lane.

                      WOW Waffle Ice Cream!!!! That was the BEST!
                       
                      I like the idea and Seaside brings back some memories for me, but I have not been there in YEARS... Cheese Steaks... I remember driving down from Newark on a friday night in the wee hours to just to get a Seaside Cheese Steak (back in the late 80's) Man those were the days!

                          So....um....I'm just wondering,  since this is in the "eat and greet" section of the forum I guess I can safely (and of course obviously) assume that this is a roadfood gathering?  Not that I'm interested in attending, I'm just wondering when is it? where are you all going?

                            there's really so many choices , up and down the coast of the jersey shore  110 miles ,  i was trying to do is just trying to start a blog/info tour of the  folks of roadfood , their  travel's on the jersey shore food scene , it would really be crazy to get something going as a group , so many towns, so many eateries ............ just would like to see the  people's  experiences poster here. a individual tour  is just as good as a  group tour.........

                              It's not as crazy as it sounds.  Select a  small area of the shore- perhaps within a 20 or 25 mile radius. select and have everyone agree to  a half dozen stops or so and get something started for an all day or even half a day event. It's actually rather easy.

                                I agree with wanderingjew.  It's not at all crazy to get something going as a group.  It is actually rather easy, not to mention that it's a LOT of fun!

                                    RIP Dog Boss.  I guess this trip has been canceled.  Dog Boss is now walking the Boardwalk in heaven.
