New Jersey is the greatest state in America. This has nothing to do with the fact that I have lived in New Jersey my whole life; I make this claim strictly with objectivity and fact based arguments. The diverse, and densely populated state is home to a bevy of attractive and titillating features. Historically, culturally, scenically, New Jersey is without equal. Conventional wisdom of New Jersey’s ails are not grounded in reality. New Jersey is called “The Garden State” for a reason, as despite popular belief, the state is more than just highways. New Jersey has everything you would want in a state and more. Many of the greatest Americans ever are from our boundaries. Our cuisine is renowned and unlike any other.

The menus are comprehensive, and have something for everyone. Everyone in New Jersey has his or her favorite local diner, and usually knows the owners by name. In my last diner meal before leaving for school, Mr. Matthews, the owner of my beloved “Pompton Queen Diner”, covered my meal as my goodbye present. That is all you need to know about the family atmosphere and love that comes from New Jersey diners. Another thing that I am missing from New Jersey’s cuisine is Taylor Ham. If you ask the typical Pennsylvanian what Taylor Ham is, they will have no clue. Taylor Ham is the ultimate breakfast meat. It goes perfectly as a side to eggs, or on a bagel. Yet
