New Jersey is famous for its pork buns, eggs and cheese.
It’s pork bun, not Taylor ham. Sorry, it always was and always will be a pork bun (sorry North Jersey.) There’s a science to eating a really, really good pork bun, egg and cheese.
I spoke to one of my favorite “New Jerseyers” and his favorite food, of course, is pork buns. He said it reminded him of home and family. “Others try to make the perfect pork bun, but nothing beats a real New Jersey pork bun sandwich.”
My husband, Nickey, told me about the 10 commandments for the perfect way to eat a pork bun. He told me these 10 commandments in about 2 seconds. It made me giggle. I had no idea there was such a thing, but for him there is.
The only debate is where to get the best pork bun, egg and cheese on the Jersey Shore. We ask this question all the time and we have some great places with the best. There are several places that made the top spot here in Ocean County with the help of yelp.com: JT’s Bagel Hut in Lacey, Beach Shack in Pt. Pleasant Beach, The Bagel Shack in Beach Haven, Lava Java in Lavallette, Oh What A Bagel in Bayville and so many more great places. Where’s the best place in Ocean County to eat a pork, egg and cheese bun?
