Eating ethnic from Edison NJ to Wash DC
- Victor Lieberman
I have a limited amount of time for a chow/drive from Edison to DC. Looking out for food grabs on the way:
Fried hot dogs
Must be easy exits from 95, 295 as I get lost easily even though I grew up in Philly.
If you grew up in Philly, then you ought to be able to find Tony Lukes on Oregon Ave (right UNDER I-95) for the best roast pork sandwiches and cheesesteaks in town. I know how to get there but I can't explain. Try Mapquest.
For great crab cakes or crabs along the way, take the I-95 Northeast, MD, exit into Northeast and look for Woody's Crabs on main street.
I don't know if I'd call either of these places ethnic but they sure are local.
Thanks, I have never made it to Tony Luke's, although since this trip I did get back to the Reading Terminal's Roast Pork Sandwhiches and the son of Pat's cheesesteaks and the hot dog cart on the way out of town...I should have replied when it was all fresh in my mind....My bad...Incidentally, for any of you who are in Southern California and in need of a Cheesesteak...Philly Franks in San Marcos is the real deal...The best of the ex-patriots.
