Longtime friends and passionate food lovers Mark Anderson and Ryan Fey, embark on the ultimate Comfort Food Tour to discover the most mouthwatering and soul satisfying dishes across the country. Eating their way from destination to destination, they will try it all from juicy burgers that drip down your arm, to homemade cheesy lasagna that makes you feel at home, to sweet-and-savory soul food that will make you want to lick your plate.
Mark and Fey head to Chicago for the epitome of Italian comfort - homemade cheesy lasagna. At Bacchanalia, a female family run restaurant, the duo learns the secret to making impossibly rich and creamy lasagna, without any ricotta cheese. Then, they end the meal on a high note with tiramisu filled with mascarpone custard. Next, they head south to Turnhouse Grill in Charlotte, North Carolina for perfect pork chops, made with homemade apple butter that adds a sweet complementary flavor to the dish. The sweetness continues with a sinful salted caramel apple bread pudding so good it will make you sing. To round out this trip, Mark and Fey meet up with Eddie Jackson at his outdoor eatery, The Rosehill Beer Garden in Cypress, Texas where he brings eclectic food trucks together serving up classic comfort foods with unique twists from around the globe.
Mark Anderson and Ryan Fey dig in at the Yolk in Rock Hill, S.C., where they're blown away by the smoky, salty and very porky flavors packed into each bite of their delectable grits. On a visit to Brown Bag Deli in Columbus, Ohio, they destroy a brisket sandwich that leaves them speechless before moving on to a decadent bowl of loaded potato soup covered in the thickest layer of cheese ever to grace the top of a soup bowl. And at the Ms. Cheezius food truck in Miami, the guys are pumped to help turn the comfort classic s'mores into something so much more!
Mark Anderson and Ryan Fey roll into San Diego, Calif., and head straight to chocolate bar and bistro Eclipse for a one-of-a-kind creation the likes of which they've never seen -- the Egg and Bacon Cinnaroll. In Chicago, the guys visit OiiStarr, where they savor a bowl of their crazy popular Spicy Garlic Shoyu Ramen with a side of the best Asian buns the Windy City has to offer. In Miami, Mark and Ryan are treated like VIPs when they're granted access to a super-secret menu item at a Cuban bistro -- a deep-fried mother of a dish that mere mortals can only dream of finishing.
Mark Anderson and Ryan Fey stop by Ajumama -- a funky food truck in Columbus, Ohio -- to grill up a top-secret cheesesteak with a Korean twist. A sweet and flaky dumpling that is out-of-this-world incredible is also on tap. At Betty's Pie Whole in Encinitas, Calif., the guys go belly-up for Mama Joe's Meatball Pie -- a savory dish with a pizza dough crust that puts all other pie crusts to shame. Still hungry, they pay a visit to Chicken and Farm Shop in Chicago where they go nuts for an eye-opening fried chicken sandwich locals claim is the best chicken sandwich bar-none.
Mark Anderson and Ryan Fey help make the most coveted dish in the state of Ohio -- perfectly fried veal schnitzel smothered in scrumptious brown gravy -- while visiting Schmidt's Sausage Haus in Columbus. The guys ascend to taco heaven after eating a one-of-a-kind Al Pastor Taco with super juicy chicken and all the fixin's at Puesto in La Jolla, California. Still on the prowl, they make a stop at Pondicheri -- a cutting-edge Indian restaurant in Houston, Texas -- where the Chickpea Masala Fried Chicken is worthy of a spot on the must-eat bucket list of even the most discerning palate.
