Jersey food is just so good.

Anyone from New Jersey knows that we basically have the best food ever. From pizza to bagels, we've got it all. Here are a few of the best places that you must try at the Jersey Shore!

1. Broad St. Dough Co & Top That Donuts

I felt I needed to mention both of these doughnut places at once because I seriously couldn't decide which was best! Broad St. Dough Co is in Oakhurst, NJ and Top That Donuts is in Point Pleasant, NJ. Both are seriously so delicious.

2. Rook Coffee

Rook is seriously the best coffee ever. They also offer bagels and other quick to-go foods that are seriously awesome. Rook has locations all over the Jersey Shore!

3. The Buttered Biscuit

This cafe is seriously the best place for breakfast or brunch! Their food is so delicious (the hash browns -- seriously so good) and it's in the cutest little town, Bradley Beach, NJ!

4. Strollos

This is the best Italian Ice at the Jersey Shore without a doubt. You can find Strollos in Belmar or Point Pleasant, but you have to try their Italian ice swirl ASAP!

5. The Committed Pig

The Committed Pig is definitely the best place to get a burger. They have options for everyone, including turkey burgers, and they also have breakfast! They're located in Manasquan, NJ.

6. Meemom's Kitchen

Meemom's french toast is heavenly. So. Good. You can find Meemom's in both Wall and Middletown!

7. Pete and Elda's / Carmen's Pizzeria

Pete and Elda's is seriously the best thin crust pizza ever. The usual long wait for a table is so worth it. You can find Pete and Elda's in Neptune City!

8. Bubbakoo's Burrito

Bubbakoo's burritos are so good and they have so many different options other than burritos! They have locations all around the Jersey shore.

9. Playa Bowls

Playa bowls are the best for hot summer days (and every other day for that matter). With choices of acai bowls, pitaya bowls, smoothies and a ton of other yummy options, you have to try them next time you're by the beach! They have locations in Belmar and Manasquan.

10. Fins

Fins is one of my favorite places for wraps. Their Hawaii 5-0 wrap is so delicious! Fins has locations in Bradley Beach, Sea Girt and Brick!

11. The Breakfast Club/Big City Bagels

Again, I had to include both places because they're both so good! The Breakfast Club and Big City Bagels' pork roll egg and cheese with a hash brown is the best around. The Breakfast Club is in Farmingdale and Big City Bagels is in Howell.

9 Things All Mexican Food Addicts Know All Too Well

Don't come between me and my Mexican food.

In the city I grew up in, there is a Mexican restaurant just about every five miles. They are the after school hangouts and first date go-to's for most of the kids here, especially the high school girls.

I know the servers at my favorite one know my order almost every time I go in there (at least once a week). However, a lot of people apparently get tired of eating Mexican food about twice a week... but I sure don't. If you are a Mexican food addict like me, I am sure you know at least a few of these yourself.

1. Cheese dip tastes like heaven and you have to have it.

That amazing creamy white cheese dip put on a perfectly salted chip is enough to make your day better. Forget the actual food---we'd be content living off of cheese dip and chips for the rest of our lives. Our restaurant trip is not complete without an order of it and if you are lucky enough to get your favorite waiter, maybe even get a large bowl for the night.

2. You never have to look at the menu.



We know when we decide to go what we are having and it is probably the exact same plate we order each time. I am sure the servers laugh after I order some days because there is only three things I rotate between. My burrito is always my go-to, unless I am feeling fancy.

3. Some of the servers know who you are when you walk in the door.

Either by first name or by order they know us. You are the ones that they tell to pick your own seat and already have your drink order placed by the time you sit down.

4. Your boyfriend/ girlfriend puts you on Mexican restaurant restriction on date night.


You drag them there so much, they get tired of eating there. So much so, they flat out say no when you ask to go there on date night. I mean, how does someone get tired of Mexican food to begin with though?

5. You can hum some of the songs that come on.

We may not know what they are saying in the song, but we know the song---trust us. We are in there so much we remember them. Don't ask any questions when we start humming.

6. You "have" a parking spot.

Do not park in my parking spot that is not actually my parking spot, but is my parking spot. Got it? Just do not do it. That starts my meal bad when you take my normal spot.

7. You used to hangout there all the time after school.

It was the hangout spot. Forget the nasty school lunch--- everyone goes to eat Mexican after school. It's the cool thing to do and it started your addiction.

8. You always want to introduce new people to your favorite restaurant.

Oh, you aced that exam? Let's go eat at this amazing Mexican restaurant I love! We always want to find people to go there to eat with so we always introduce new people to it.

9. People always pick on you about your addiction.


Yes, I love Mexican food. Go ahead and tag me in all the memes on Facebook about tacos. As long as I have my Mexican food, I am fine with that.

All in all, we LOVE our Mexican food and our go-to restaurants--- so here is your warning. Don't come between me and my Mexican food.

The 3 Best 21st Birthday Gifts For Your BFF

Cheers to 21 years!

453
views

It's an odd time in your life when half of your friends go out to the bar on Saturday night and the other half sits in and watches movies. Now, depending on your friend, you have three ways that your 21st birthday gift idea can go.

1. For The Chill Friend

If you have that one friend who always seems to be the rule follower and doesn't ever really go out and let their hair down, there is only one way to go: Lots Of Liquor. It's finally there chance to go out and get crazy. You, as their honorary bff, have no choice but to go all out and get them a full on basket of individual liquor bottles, bottles of mixers, and goodies to snack on! Another gift you're going to be obligated to throw in, though they may not notice, is that you'll be deemed the responsible one. Switch roles for a night and make sure your friend isn't totally re-tasting what they'd eaten for dinner... you want them to at least last through the pregame.

2. For The Party Friend

Giphy

We've all got the friend who's been breaking rules since they were able to walk. High school came around and you weren't even the least bit surprised that they were pregaming the football games in the parking lot. So, to them, happy 21st just means they can throw away their fake ID and use their real one. If this is the case, it's safe to assume they have all the necessary alcohol they want and they also already know what they like. The best gift to a party happy friend is a nice recovery basket for the next day. This should be stuffed with all the necessities, Advil, Pedialyte, and other the other day after must-haves.

3. For The Normal Friend

Giphy

All of our friends are not going to be crazy, out-of-hand rule breakers or goody-too-shoes. Sometimes you're going to have a friend who plays by the rules... most of the time. If this is the case, there is only one way to go: a little bit of both. You could probably be safe with a cute hand painted wine glass and a bottle of their favorite, but where is the fun in that? They know enough about alcohol to assume they will surely need that hangover kit the next day, but not enough to have it stocked and ready to party on their big day.
