(Why the wow?)
Don't know half of what you mentioned, but hey, Jersey is a diverse place.
Been to a lot of Diners across Jersey, but the most frequented was the Randolph Diner. Much preferred them before the remodel. Went to them only once after the remodel and the atmosphere was gone. But in their prime....
Cheeseburger, medium-rare, no fries, and tea. (I know it doesn't effect the cost, I simply just don't bother eating fries.)
Three eggs scrambled and tea, please. For some reason "home fries" click with me a little better?
[I'm not really into tea, I simply enjoyed it to be ostentatious.]
The former, though, is what I ate when I did my carbon writing in a diner. I paid my bill, I tipped, and there were plenty of places for other customers. I don't smoke, but I really miss when I would be seated in the "smoking" section. OH MY GOD. There was this one waiter. I can't remember his name. Candi and I went there often enough that
Diego would tease us "So when are you going to marry her"?
I don't eat mushrooms. They are a fungus. (Picked up this fear from my Grandma.) Oh, if you sneak them in, I won't quibble. But I can taste the difference. And immediately go "Wait, are there mushrooms in this?" I won't vomit, I won't complain - I will simply push my plate forward and stop eating. No fungus for Timmy.
