The 8 Best Places to Eat on the Road in the Country

On Log On & Eat with Eden Grinshpan, Eden travels the country to meet the most outrageous and original food bloggers and social media stars who invite her to devour their favorite dishes. We connected with them to pick their brains and score some exclusive advice and tips.

You know when you’re watching the Cooking Channel and they are featuring great food from all over the United States and you think to yourself, one day I have to make it out there to try that? For those of us who consider ourselves food fanatics, we always want to try the best of the best no matter where it is. Well, as a truck driver, I have the unique opportunity to travel the United States and experience some of the best cuisine this country has to offer while doing my job of keeping America moving. Here are a few of my top picks of places you just have to experience if you’re a food fanatic like me:

1) Just Oxtails  — Houston
This place feels like going to your grandma’s house for Sunday dinner. Everything I’ve ever tried here is delicious and has that authentic soul food taste that you can’t really get anywhere other than down South. As the name states, one of their specialties is tender meaty oxtails, which are a must-try. However, their menu changes daily, serving up everything from smothered pork chops, fried chicken and meatloaf to turkey wings, fried catfish and even meatballs. An extensive selection of homemade sides like candied yams, mac and cheese, and greens finish off your meal to make it an experience you will not soon forget!

5 Of The Best Beers You’ll Ever Try

On Log On & Eat with Eden Grinshpan, Eden travels the country to meet the most outrageous and original food bloggers and social media stars who invite her to devour their favorite dishes. We connected with them to pick their brains and score some exclusive advice and tips.

Every time I’m asked to suggest beers to anyone I struggle because we all come from different backgrounds and people tend to be most picky about what they drink. Depending on your region, the season or your palette, you may hate one or all of the beers on this list. To reveal my own bias, I most often drink sour beers, stouts and porters. And while I enjoy a really good IPA, it’s not my go-to style. Here are a few of my picks that span the spectrum of hoppy to malty to unusual.

Live Oak Brewing Company: HefeWeizen

HefeWeizens are great German-style beers that are easy drinking, especially in the Texas Heat (#shoutout). Named after the German term for wheat beers (weissbier), Live Oak HefeWeizen has a strong banana and clove flavors with a crisp finish. This is the beer that changed my outlook on craft beer and will be one I drink for life. The catch is, you can only get it in bars or at the brewery because they do not bottle or can it (yet). Look out for the classic Live Oak wooden tap handle next time you are in the Lone Star State.

A Fried Christmastime Treat: Bunuelos

I love the look of Bunuelos — the treat is so enticing with their perfectly round shape. They are a Christmastime favorite in Columbia, where the fried yeast balls are stuffed with a white salty cheese and are more savory than sweet. The dish is traditionally served with natilla, a custard-like dessert that is very similar to flan, and with ‘manjar blanco’ for a Christmas trifecta.

Columbian Natilla (the ‘s’ gets dropped in Columbia) differs from the natilla in other countries since they don’t use eggs. This dish gets served chilled and is the perfect accompaniment to a crunchy, salty bunuelo.

Heat the Oil for Latkes

December isn’t just for Christmas. Hannukah often falls within the month as well. This eight day, eight night Jewish holiday celebrates the successful liberation of the holy temple in Jerusalem. It’s also referred to as the Festival of Lights, in part because a one-day supply of oil was able to light a menorah in the Temple for eight days.

Because of this miracle of the oil, traditional holiday foods are often fried in oil. The most commonly known dish (and most popular) is the latke. I mean, who doesn’t love potatoes fried in oil? It’s like a rosti but shaped like a pancake! I grew up eating these. Traditional latkes have grated potatoes, onions, egg and flour, but new versions are coming out, made with different root veggies, like grated zucchini, sweet potato, or squash. The list goes on and on. Latkes are traditionally served with either applesauce or sour cream. I love them both and cannot/will not choose a favorite! It all depends on my mood!

Eden Eats’ Eden Grinshpan Answers Your Questions

Eden Eats

We gave Cooking Channel’s Facebook friends the chance to ask Eden Grinshpan, the host of Eden Eats, anything they wanted. Here are 10 of her responses:

What’s the most interesting thing you’ve tasted so far?
I would have to say the peanut butter soup and the plantain fufu we had in our Nashville episode. It was so tasty but the texture of the fufu was one that I have never experienced before. The fufu was so smooth and doughy. They mash it so much that you are not even supposed to chew it, just swallow. Crazy cool!
