I couldn’t conclude a tour of New Jersey without visiting a Jersey diner. And without getting Taylor ham, although it’s referred to as pork roll in South Jersey.
When you step inside Ponzio’s, the first thing you see is the huge bakery with cases of cakes, pastries and cookies. A sight that has me drooling.
For an appetizer, we got the bay fries. These were really delicious!
I got a pork roll and cheese sandwich.
Pretty good, although I prefer a breakfast Taylor ham and egg roll.
My friend was excited to get calamari marinara, calamari as an entrée without breading.
I thought I’d try the peach pie, which looks amazing in this photo, with its whipped cream piled high. I have to say it was a bit disappointing though, as it didn’t have a fresh, farm-fresh pie flavor to it. I think the whipped cream was artificial.
