The Best Road Trip Food
1 Comments


– Food is always at the You’re not really out
looking for anything certain. We Googling while we
driving off the interstate. And this food truck,
out of all places, popped up with an actual
geographical location then seeing a name like “Too Fat
to Fly,” who can refuse that? In Hawaii on
the road to Hana I had a freshly made banana bread
with brulaised banana on top. A big plate of fried chicken
at Gus’s in Memphis, Tennessee. A white clam pizza at
Frank Pepe’s Pizzeria. It was an egg salad sandwich
from 7-eleven in Tokyo. I didn’t even know egg salad
sandwiches could be that good. In Naples, where I
had a dish of linguine with clams and zucchini
that was like I’ve never eaten linguine
before, clams before, or zucchini before. A grilled octopus and
crispy potato salad has Scott Kona’s restaurant in Las Vegas. In Maui there’s a
guy who’s got a stand. And whatever he’s making that
day, that’s what you get. And he serves it on a
big giant piece of bark. And then he takes a big machete
and he makes chopsticks for you out of giant pieces of bamboo. Driving out of the city on
the way back to Mexico City I got a simple tamale. I travel to Japan very often. Traditionally if your
boss takes you to dinner, you have to eat whatever
he tells you to eat. The shrimp, poor thing,
is running, trying to get away from your mouth. And he’s like go,
try it, it’s awesome. It’s great. It’s the best thing
you’ll ever have.
