Does the smell of fresh pizza make you yearn for the Italian countryside? Do you feel transported to Tokyo when you dine on the perfect bowl of ramen? Traveling has become next to impossible in the last few months, but that’s no reason why you can’t start looking forward to your next trip.
New England isn’t just known for its stunning fall leaves, wonderful ocean views, and regional charms. There are plenty of dishes you can become familiar with to prepare you for when travel is back on the agenda.
Taste of New England
The dynamite sandwich is a very special New England dish, specifically known for being a Rhode Island recipe. This sandwich is perfect for one of those fall evenings when the wind has just turned cold, and you’ve pulled out a few lighter layers.
You can eat this with the family, or with friends having a tailgate. Either way, this sandwich is sure to be a crowdpleaser, and remind you of the beautiful place it originated.
It wouldn’t be a trip to New England without a few fried clams. Whether you prefer fried clam bellies or fried clam strips, they’re sure to transport you to the beautiful beaches. After a walk along the shore, you can always grab some fried clams as a quick snack, or enjoy them with another one of the local favorites.
Maine Style Lobster Roll
A lot of these dishes are served hot, but you also need a few foods for those warmer months that can transport you back to New England. The Maine style lobster roll is a perfect option. As opposed to the roll based in Connecticut, the Maine style involved being served cold.
Both are great dishes, and there is nothing like a good “lobstah” to remind you of why your next trip to New England will be great.
New England boiled dinner is guaranteed to warm you up and get you looking forward to your next trip. This classic dish includes a lot of hearty vegetables, potatoes, and a meat component, often brisket or corned beef.
This dinner will keep you fed and happy. You can also make this dish your own by switching out ingredients. The New England Boiled dinner recipe can serve plenty of guests and have them asking for more.
Chowder, or “chowdah” for those looking to feel like they’re about to be eating some hot chowder in New England, is a great dish to remind you of your favorite spot along the coast. When you are searching for authentic clam chowder recipes, you may want to search for Rhode Island clam chowder.
This clam chowder is unique for its clear broth, which allows more focus on the clams. You’ll be able to enjoy the local flavors while you prepare for your next journey. And you can always go for some fish chowder if you’re short on clams.
