It's time to ditch the protein and reach for the carbs in this over-the-top tour of foods to satisfy any carb craving. A trip to California turns up a pizza topped with pasta and a grilled cheese filled with spaghetti. And a doughnut shop in Portland takes mashed potatoes and fries them into fritters. In Chicago, a pretzel joint stuffs its knots with cakes and cookies, proving that no carb is safe from more carbs.
This food tour heads to some of the most amazing eateries for handheld food, with no bowls, plates or utensils getting in the way. From big bags of saucy seafood in Chicago to arepas stuffed with slow-cooked meats in Minneapolis, chicken fingers in New York City to breakfast tacos in Austin.
From lobster smothered in melted Monterey Jack cheese to s'mores with gooey handmade marshmallows drenched in chocolate, this coast-to-coast tour finds the most indulgent, thickly coated culinary creations ever made.
