Road trip – it´s all about the food…

Food. I love it. All types of food. Really. And Chemical Engineer feels the same way. So on our road trip/honeymoon, we knew there would be lots of eating and lots of different type of food (homemade by our dear friends, fast food on the road and restaurants in the towns we stayed at…).

And…we were not disappointed 😀

My favorite fast food restaurant was WAFFLE HOUSE.

I miss it here in Germany, really, their Texas Melt is just too yummy 😀

When it comes to restaurants, well while we loved all restaurants we went to, Delmenico´s in NYC stood out. This steakhouse had everything: a NYC history (it´s considered a “classic”), an interesting atmosphere (including some people celebrating a birthday, students, a basketball player and Wall Street bankers), a funny waiter and great great great food!

So tell me, what is your favorite food while on the road?

    Travel is *always* about the food! Glad I’m not the only one who takes pictures of my meals, something the hubster always teases me about! When travelling I do enjoy the odd posh eat, but I love just sampling thelocal cuisine and delicacies in small, cosy eateries or street stalls.

    • Elodie Nowodazkij says:

      This is so true 😀 Hubby usually teases me about the food picture too but for those ones he stayed still 😀 We tried many small places or recommended ones which were so yummy, the barbecue place we went to in Texas was YUMMY 😀

    ZOMG, WAFFLE HOUSE! We don’t have those in the northeast, so when I first discovered them, I took pictures in every one I went to. How cool that you got to go everywhere from there to Delmonico’s–WOW!

    • Elodie Nowodazkij says:

      We really had a great time 😀 and the food was simply delicious everywhere we went (and I miss the Waffle House here in Germany :D)

  3. Wow! That all sounds amazing! Delmonico’s is beautiful. I’ve never been to a Waffle House. It sounds yummy! We have ‘Pancake Houses’ here, though and just thinking about that is making my tummy rumble. I think I’d better go find some breakfast! 🙂

    • Elodie Nowodazkij says:

      The Waffle House is also a fun place to go as there is always some interesting people there. I am always wondering about their stories 😀 Delmonicos was really delicious 😀 Hmmmm foood 😀

    Mmmmm, this post is delicious! I don’t know what it is, but vacation food always tastes so much better to me, without fail. When I think back on the best meals I’ve ever eaten, 90% of them were eaten while on vacation in far-off locales.

    • Elodie Nowodazkij says:

      Thanks Meredith 😀 Food is just so yummy! I think when were on vacations, we also soak up the entire atmosphere surrounding our meals which make them all ever better!

    On my recent work trip to Southern California, I was glad that we were treated to food and restaurants we wouldn’t have had back East. Whenever I’m somewhere new, I much prefer sampling the local cuisine. And the food we had in SoCal was wonderful! Especially for a vegetarian. 🙂 I mentioned Nick’s at Laguna Beach on my blog a while back, but I mention it again as one of the best restaurants I’ve ever been to for service and quality of food.

    • Elodie Nowodazkij says:

      I remember that post, Colin 😀 Hubby and I love food and this trip was great to sample many different types from barbecue in Texas to specialties in Cape Cod…Delicious 😀

  6. Kat says:

    Oh wow, that does look amazing! Though because I don’t get to eat German stuff all year I miss it – especially during Stollen and Plaetzchen during Christmas time!

    On a completely unrelated note: I’m giving you the 7×7 link award which will hopefully introduce people to some of your best posts. Details here.

    • Elodie Nowodazkij says:

      Awww! Thanks so much for award Kat, I am thinking about posting the 7*7 link award on Tuesday 😀 It sounds like a lot of fun! Its true that Christmas time has a special resonance in Germany too, I love the Christmas markets, enjoying a glass of hot spicy wine or just sampling on some yummy food! 😀 How often do you come to Germany?

      • Kat says:

        You’re more than welcome 🙂 I usually go for Christmas and summer – actually going back for a month in a little over a week!

  7. YUM! Eating at different restaurants is one of my favorite parts of traveling too. My husband and I went to San Francisco, CA and Napa (Wine Country) for our honeymoon and the food was the best part!

    • Elodie Nowodazkij says:

      Napa must be a great food/wine experience too 😀 We really love food and that trip was definitely a treat 😀

    Our trip to Scotland was wonderful, but the food was hardly memorable. Way too much pub fare and seeing ‘haggis, neeps, & tatties’ on nealry every menu was just kind of…blech. 😛 We went to Mexico the year before and had pretty amazing food just about everywhere we went. One meal that was particularly memorable was in La Paz, Mexico, and involved a lobster stuffed potato dish. So delicious!

    Fun post! Love all the pictures. I love eating at different and unique places when I travel. I have only been to a Waffle House once, but I loved it. 🙂 As far as a favorite, I don’t know! There are so many to choose from. I always love to eat Mexican food wherever I go. My sister and I like to try restaurants that have been on tv shows. We went to this awesome grilled cheese place in Cleveland that was on Man Vs. Food. I always eat at Fazoli’s (fast food Italian) when I’m in Indiana, because we don’t have it here. Those are a few of my favorites. 🙂

    • Elodie Nowodazkij says:

      Thanks 😀 The Waffle House is just a fun/interesting experience all around 😀 I do miss it here in Germany. I love Mexican food as well and it must be a lot of fun to try out food from restaurants which were featured on tv shows!

    Haha first…you made me hungry. 2nd I so might be stopping by Waffle House on my way home tonight (I have a friend that works night shift hehe).

      • Eve says:

        Oh did I think about it but I text my friend and he was off that night plus I had stopped by the store and had cold stuff in the car so…it was for the best not to stop by.

  11. Robin Moran says:

    Looking at that just makes me hungry. Looks absolutely delicious! I do love a trip to the York Hog Roast when I’m up in York. Pork, Turkey, Ham, or Beef sandwhiches and you can ask for stuffing or sauces and get a side of hot roast potatoes. Gorgeous!

    If I’m visiting anywhere else I always head for the nearest pub. Nothing better than pub grub! 😀

    And I would so love to visit a waffle house or a pancake house. I could honestly have a huge stack of pancakes and maple syrup for breakfast. That would be bliss!

    • Elodie Nowodazkij says:

      😀 Thank you! Hmmm and that York Hog Roast does sound very yummy too! The Waffle House has yummy waffles as well as other breakfast type dishes…I really enjoy it and we always try to go when were in the US 😀

    I love road trips and it looks like yours was amazing! What a lovely honeymoon.

    I also love how you’ve arranged your photos I must check our photovizi

    • Elodie Nowodazkij says:

      Thanks Alexa 😀 The road trip/honeymoon was indeed wonderful and the food was delicious 😀 Photovizi was quite simple to use as I was trying to find a way to share the pictures without being too overwhelming (I took a loooooooooooot of pictures :D)….
