I wish I had a place nearby that served dim sum. That looks absolutely fantastic.
Tudor's Biscuit World? That's a chain, dude! Shame on you! (Although I've always wanted to try them on our passages through WVa).

It looks like Tudor's uses a reasonably decent cheese, too.

Dim Sum for breakfast? Classy fella!
 




I guess its the "cosmopolitan" thing to do . Growing up in NY I never did Dim Sum there once. The closest I came to doing Dim Sum was heading to the bars on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, and after they closed at 4am we'd take the subway to Chinatown for breakfast at Wo Hop

Michael Hoffman keeps reminding me ... But it's a West Virginia only local chain with a handful of outposts in Eastern Ohio

Roadfood Professional  Hall of Fame of 2016
 
A couple of months ago I started a thread highlighting the Roadfood Profressionals throughout the years that took the extra step to make the dining experience extra special
 
Before I announce the 2016 winners (a two way tie this year) I want to re-cap 2016 in a nutshell
 
Back in January Sandra and I escaped the first major blizzard in Rhode Island by heading NORTH to Vermont. Yes, it was a coastal storm and Southern Vermont nary a snowflake fell. We then continued down to Worcester MA to meet our Boston Roadfood Friends.
 
In February Sandra and I embarked  on our week long trip. After flying down to Charlotte, we met the original Roadfooder himself,  Michael and Linda Stern at Shealy's BBQ the next day for lunch. We then continued on to Jacksonville/St Augustine Weekend meeting new to me Roadfooders including, Chicken Plucker,  Big Bear, Crew84Row and Keysey42 We then continued on to Charleston via Savannah before returning to Charlotte via Columbia SC to spend time with my Cousin Lisa and her family as well as my friend Julianne and her husband Scott.
 
In April Sandra and I headed on our first Roadtrip of the year beginning in Amish Country and visiting Sandra's relatives. We then continued on to Charleston and Huntington WV and even made it as far west as Ashland KY before returning to Pittsburgh for the big spring weekend trip. We then returned home via Scranton #WheresJoeRogo?
 
In May, merely a few weeks later we headed on an impromptu visit to my Nephew Brandon's college graduation in Binghamton NY , but stayed an hour south in Scranton PA since no hotels were available in Bingamton.  We did have breakfast in Scranton with #There'sJoeRogo and Mosca
 
June took the Boston Crew on the Billyboy lead Brooklyn tour, Sandra and I spent the following day in in Manhattan due to an incredibly lucky overnight priceline pick for a King room at the Sheraton Time Square for $89 a night and an spur of the moment lunch with Billyboy
 
No big trips in July but it's always a big event when Buffetbuster comes to Rhode Island for the weekend during his week long trip throughout New England
 
My solo heartland Roadtrip was in August of this year. stopping in CT to see Sandra, NJ to visit my friend Ian, then off to Amish Country and then burgers in Columbus with Michael Hoffman, Lleechef and my Cousin Mona.  Only to be greeted by a huge spread sheet in Indiana with the likes of Chi Town Diner and ChiBears15 We met other Roadfooders at Joe Hubers in Starlight IN including new to me roadfooder Uncle Groucho and of course our special guest, Mayor Al's widow, Ms. Janet My trip continued on with Louis showing me some of the best Roadfood spots in Western KY and then on the way home meeting up with Ralph Melton his lovely bride Ice Cream Chick and of course Buffetbuster for some Barberton Chicken  at Belgrade Gardens in Barberton OH and finally a quick in the parking lot hello to Mosca in Wilkes Barre PA
 
September took Sandra and I on our week long trip to San Francisco and Yosemite, not only did we experience all time high record breaking heat in San Francisco of 91 and 90 degree, respectively but we also had dinner at my Cousin Dane's house in beautiful, upscale Tiburon.
 
October took me on an impromptu trip to Baltimore and DC for a two interesting family re-unions including meeting my younger half sister for the very first time. I also had the opportunity to get together with Sandra's college friend, Ellen and her boyfriend Joel and dine with Signman at Pioneer Pit Beef (my first visit) and of course everyone's Cousin Johnny at G & M Restaurant
 
Sandra and I spent Thanksgiving weekend in Northern VT visiting new to us restaurants and finally in December I headed to NYC for an impromptu farewell to the Carnegie Deli with my friends Ian and Steve, and his coworker Justin. 
 
I guess all in all it was a big Roadfood Year.
 
Anyway, back in February, our first official stop for Jacksonville/St. Augustine weekend was Gator's BBQ in Jacksonville 
Not only was it one of our favorite stops of the weekend, but owners John and Sandy Shepherd truly went out of their way to ensure we had an excellent experience. They were truly fantastic hosts and I'm glad I finally completed my Roadfood review of Gator's BBQ
 
In August, Chibears15 was really looking forward to a visit at Zaharakos in Columbus In. It was there we met soda jerk extraordinaire, Wilma Hare. A perky firecracker of a lady who doesnt' take guff from anyone, especially Chi Town Diner. Wilma was a real hoot and gave us a tour of the upstairs museum.
 
So the roadfood professionals of 2016 are

My prayers did not include any "wait time", "periods of rest" or "#WJscrewingaroundtime" - get back to work because ChiBears15 is waiting in the wings!

Sorry, some of us can't sit around  and wallow in retirement. I do work and I'm also heading up to Boston this evening to see my cousin Howie who is visiting from Long Island with his wife.
Besides...where is YOUR trip report?

As planned, I have sent all my photos to ChiBears15 who is producing a legendary combined Trip Report - End of the Year Review.  So as to not steal your thunder, he is waiting patiently!

Three visits to Hominy Grill on the same trip?  I'm starting to think you like the place. 
 
We are leaving for Charleston on Friday and have reservations for New Year's Eve dinner at Hominy Grill.  And no doubt we will have breakfast there one morning, too.  Looks like we will come up one short!

We did the same thing in the "other Charleston" with Diehl's- we visited three times.
It seems that visiting Charleston for New Years is almost becoming an annual tradition with you .

Old Standby's
 
(in no particular order)
These are the roadfood restaurants tried and true that I continue to revisit throughout the years. Believe it or not I decided to ease the requirements this year of waiting a minimum of three years before re-posting an old standby. Unfortunately there were a couple of old stand by's that left me a little disappointed and were not quite the way they were. I mentioned one in my August trip report, but it doesn't matter which ones they were. 
 
1. Cioppino at Tadich Grill- San Francisco CA
(last visited in 2007)
 
A stew filled with an aquariam of sea creatures, was just as good as I remembered nearly 9 and a half years later. We saved this stop for last and it may have been Sandra's favorite meal of our San Francisco trip.

2. Petrale Sole at Sam's Grill- San Francisco CA
(last visited in 2007)
 
Such an incredibly clean tasting fish. Although my side of creamed spinach was a little on the soupy side, the main course alone made that a forgotten memory
 
IMG_0185 by ohso37, on Flickr
 
3. Chicken Paprikash at Belgrade Gardens - Barberton OH
(last visited in 2011)
 
Having ordered the barberton fried chicken on last visit, my mouth was wide open  in amazament when buffetbuster ordered the large chicken paprikash on this visit. Although I ordered the regular size portion,  after only one bite of the chicken paprikash my only regret was that I didn't do the same

IMG_9832 by ohso37, on Flickr
 
 
4. Falafel at Mahmoun's Falafel New York, NY 
(last visited in 1991- yes! 1991!!!)
 
I'm not sure what alluded me from visiting over the last quarter of a century. Sometimes one wonders whether it will be as good as one remembers, well when I returned with Billyboy and Sandra this past June, I decided that this is still my favorite favorite falafel sandwich ever!
 
2016-12-22_07-35-00 by ohso37, on Flickr
 
5. Stuffed Veal Shoulder and STuffed Cabbage at Goulash Place- Danbury CT
(last visited 2012)
 
Most of us were less than impressed when we visited before the official start of the Connecticut Bus tour back in 2012, however Sandra being part Hungarian had always wanted to visit, so, this past May,  on our way back home from my nephew's Graduation in Binghamton  we did and wow what a difference- I'll admit my Transylvanian Goulash was nothing to brag about but the stuffed cabbage appetizer and Sandra's Stuffed Veal Shoulder were dishes that those of old country  plebian peasant stock would be proud of.

6. Wholey Whaler Sandwich at Wholey- Pittsburgh PA
(last visited 2013)
 
I don't think I've ever had a better fried fish sandwich. Something I "must have" whenever I visit Pittsburgh 
 
Wholey&#x27;s Pittsburgh PA by ohso37, on Flickr
 
 
7. Steak Salad at Log Cabin- Harmony PA
 
(last visited 2004)
An iconic treasure about 40 minutes north of Pittsburgh, we separated from the other folks during the Pittsburgh spring weekend event to have a quite dinner with an old friend. We were lucky to get there early enough because there is usually a 2 hour wait on weekends.  
 
Log Cabin Harmony PA by ohso37, on Flickr
 
8. Burger at Tessaro's- Pittsburgh PA
(last visited 2013 - less than three years ago)
 
I'm sure grinding fresh beef on site is part of the reason that this is one of my favorite burgers in the country.
 
Tessaro&#x27;s Pittsburgh PA by ohso37, on Flick
 
9. Everything at Diehl's Restaurant- Nitro WV- 
(last visited 2015)
 
Like Hominy Grill in the "other Charleston" we visited Diehl's not once , not twice  but three times during our visit pre Pittsburgh Spring weekend. Whether it was the Beans and Cornbread, Fried Bologna Sandwich or the Country Ham with fried stuffing, each meal was stellar. This will not be the last time that Diehl's makes an appearance on this thread.

(last visited 2010)
 
IMG_8951 by ohso37, on Flickr
 
IMG_8950 by ohso37, on Flickr
 
11. Down South Egg Roll, Fried Green Tomato and Pimento Cheese Spread at Magnolia's- Charleston SC
(last visited 2010)
 
When we came here for lunch back in February, we decided to go tapas- instead of ordering full meals
IMG_8782 by ohso37, on Flickr

IMG_8779 by ohso37, on Flickr
 
 
12. Schnitz and Knepp  at County Line Restaurant- Richfield PA
(last visited 2015)
 
Ever since Rissers Restaurant closed down after the untimely death of Ernie Risser I've been looking for that perfect Penn Dutch Restaurant, especially one with Schnitz and Knepp on the menu. Last year I found it. Although not exactly in Penn Dutch Country, County Line Restaurant about 40 miles north of Harrisburg serves classic Penn Dutch Fare this side of Lancaster

13 G and M Restaurant- Linthicum Heights MD
 
(last visited 2014)
 
IMG_0316 by ohso37, on Flickr
 
My favorite crab cakes...period.....
 
Although there were some restaurants that didn't wow me as much as the dozen or so on this list, there are three that deserve special attention.
 
The first two I visited in San Francisco after a 23 year absence..
 
Original Joe's San Francisco CA
 
 
 
The Joe's Special invented in these parts is a filling combination of spinach, beef, eggs, onions and for an additonal charge- mushroom. Original Joe's in the North Beach neighborhood has been around since 1937
 
 
 
 Original Joe&#x27;s San Francisco CA by ohso37, on Flickr
 
Golden Boy Pizza
 
When I first visited  Golden Boy Pizza back in 1993 I had discovered that Foccacia Pizza was essentially San Francisco style Pizza. Having lived in Seattle for a  year at the time, I was very pizza deprived and this was truly something special I remember thinking that San Francisco was so close to Seattle that it was truly a shame we didn't have anything remotely similar.
 
IMG_0107 by ohso37, on Flickr
 
Carnegie Deli New York, NY
 
Sadly the Carnegie Deli in NYC will be closing it's doors at the end of the week. Another nail in the coffin for the NYC Jewish Delis which used to flourish in the hundreds just on the Lower East Side Alone (yes there used to be about 4 Hunred Katz's just on the lower east side)  We waited 90 minutes "on line" before entering and I'm glad I had the opportunity to say goodbye to a NYC icon.

Who granted the excemption on the three year rule?  Seems a bit loose with the traditional rules.
 
An aquarium of seafood may be my favorite line of the report!
 
I had never heard of Schnitz and Kneff...interesting.

You have to get in your horse and buggy and go to your nearest Amish restaurant- although I think Schnitz and Knepp more of a Penn Dutch Specialty- it's Ham, Dumplings and Stewed Apples.

I believe Burger King also does a Whaler and adds....cheese!  Not sure if it is from Wisconsin?!
