Pork Roll Festival: Send Foodz w/ Timothy DeLaGhetto & David So

July 26, 2019 100 By William Morgan


– Oh God, I’m allergic to pork roll.
– It’s delicious.
– I just found out.
– Well die, so this show can just be mine.
– I’m Timothy DeLaGhetto.
– And I’m David So.
– We travel around to
different food festivals
where we eat all the eats.
– We drinks all the drinks.
– And we get all types of crazy
while giving you guys the most raw
and realest food reviews in the game.
This is “Send Foodz.”
– What’s up, y’all?
We’re in Trenton, New Jersey.
I never ever thought I would
end up in Trenton, New Jersey–
– For a pork roll festival.
– I’ve never had a pork roll in my life.
– Pork roll, also known as Taylor ham,
is the pride of Jersey.
If you don’t know what a
pork roll is, don’t feel bad.
I feel like a lot of people outside
of Jersey wouldn’t know what pork roll is.
I’ve never had it.
– Also, pork roll was David’s
nickname in junior high.
– Wow, dude.
Come on, man.
– Like I don’t know what to expect, even.
– I’m expecting processed
meat, and I’m expecting it
to be fried and fatty and delicious.
– I like that.
– Right in the–
– Right in the pork rolls.
– (Beep) gut.
– Come on over.
– How you doin’ dog?
– And the cops sure do love Tim.
Hope you know guys, Tim’s a drug dealer.
You should arrest him now.
We’re doing a (beep) show, Tim.
What the (beep).
– So we’re here at the Smokehouse!
You can’t beat our meat.
– But I could sure beat mine.
Would you shut the (beep) up back there.
Apparently if you’re a New
Jersey native, you gotta
have the pork roll in
a breakfast sandwich.
Were talking about cheese,
eggs and instead of bacon
were having pork roll.
And if you see that way
its cooked, it’s griddled
and pork roll will always
have a little snip on it
because when you cook it it’ll curl up
so they cut into it so it doesn’t do that,
kinda like pepperoni right.
– How’d you know that?
– Because I… read about it yesterday.
– OK, cool!
Smells bomb.
Cheers!
That’s really good.
– I’m gonna try it without the bread,
I just wanna try the pork roll.
It tastes like spam.
– It tastes like spam!
– Like a fried spam sandwich.
But thin, cut thin.
– That’s spam.
– Fire!
OK, is this what we’re in for today?
– Yeah.
– I’m down.
– I could see why its like sliced thin,
because its salty.
– Yeah.
– If you have too much of
this it might be overbearing.
– And, I know I always say
I avoid cheese ’cause it
makes me break out.
But guess what?
I look my lactate pill
today mother (beep).
We good!
So now were at the Bacon Me Crazy booth.
I guess they specialize in this pork roll
mac & cheese.
I love me some mac & cheese.
Hey look, nothing like eating
some pork roll mac & cheese,
listening to some white people music.
It’s beautiful!
– Yeah man.
Cheers.
– Cheers.
– Nothing wrong with that.
– It’s exactly what you’d
think it’d taste like.
Good mac & cheese-
– With some smokey pork roll.
– With some salty meat on it.
– That might be the biggest difference
between this and spam.
The pork roll has a smoke flavor to it.
Creamy mac & cheese,
salty pork, you can’t really
beat that I mean.
What’s there to say besides wow.
– I know, like I said,
I took my Lactaid pills
so I could eat this cheese, son.
– You got it, nice to meet you.
– Nice to meet you too.
– David is popular in pork roll town.
I think they look at you
like a giant pork roll.
You know what I’m say-
– Just salty and bad for you.
– All right so were at the Tot Cart.
What do they have for us here bro?
– I think this thing is
like chili cheese fries but
with tater tots instead,
but they put Frito’s
so it reminds me of a Frito pie.
And they just garnish it
with some green onions.
– I don’t know if y’all
have this in your area
but the ice cream man would come around.
And you could get like a bag
of Frito’s and they would
dump some nacho cheese in there.
It was just delicious.
This is what this reminds me of.
– So if you’re wondering
where the pork roll is,
instead of using like ground beef or pork,
they use diced pork roll instead.
So, beans, pork roll, chili!
– Wow.
– OK.
– That’s great.
This takes me back to
being a (beep) teenager.
– High school baby.
– High school just eating
like chili cheese fries
in the cafeteria.
You know what I’m saying?
Its a good tater tot, its crispy.
The pork roll is salty.
The chili is good.
The nacho cheese is cheesy.
It’s exactly how it should taste.
I love it!
– We’re at the–
Yeah, oh you want one?
Yeah, yeah, here you go.
Here you go.
Were at the Simple Fried booth and a-
– This mother (beep) dodged
that hand with a quickness.
– We’re at the Simple Fried booth,
and we’re eating these Thai Jersey rolls
with pork roll in the middle and uh…
Cheers!
OK, so we got like some
glass noodles in there,
some carrots.
Like your traditional egg roll filling
with some pork roll in there.
– I wish they would’ve made
it into more of like a sausage
mixture, ’cause there’s a lot of filling.
But they fried it perfectly though.
– I still can’t get over that guy, dude.
That guy was crazy.
– The vicinity of how close
he’s talking to Tim is unreal.
So this shows the difference
between me and Tim.
Tim’s the nicest guy on
earth, it (beep) like this.
What’s going on here?
– But my favorite part of that
whole interaction is he goes,
“Hey man can you help us out?
“Help a brother out real quick?”
He’s like, ” all right, cool.
“Man, we’ll give you a pork roll.”
He goes, “No, I don’t want no pork roll.
“I want some money.”
– And then he came back and got one.
– Yeah, he still got one though.
Man.
– So we decided to get
something a little sweet.
Salty and sweet it looks like.
We’re at the Nitro-grill booth
and they got some crazy next level,
scientific (beep) going on.
– We got candied pork roll on the top.
We got this Cheeto’s
toffee thing on the bottom.
And then we have sweet cream
on the inside with candied
pork roll inside the
sweet cream ice cream.
– What?
– From Nitro-grill.
This is actually the thing
that excites me the most.
A lot of the things that we
ate today I kind of expected.
This one is out the (beep) park.
– Let’s do it!
– yo.
– Wait, give me the flavor.
That really works.
– Can I say something?
The best ice cream sandwich I’ve ever had.
– Damn!
That’s crazy.
– This bottom Cheeto, like,
toffee, cookie part of the
sandwich, (beep) amazing.
Yo, people get weirded out by this stuff.
But I’m telling you man,
sweet and salty always goes well together.
Even if it comes in meat form like this.
As long as you do it right
and its balanced, (beep) good.
– I (beep) love this, dude.
– That’s tasty.
– The best thing today.
Everybody’s going to the mac & cheese.
You’ve seen that.
She took the pork roll and
she did something new with it.
She didn’t follow what
everybody else was doing.
I’m not hating on them but goddamn.
This crazy, you guys
are crazy, its so good.
– You should be passing
this around to people.
They don’t know, they’re a
little scared that’s why.
This is so good.
Literally the best thing here.
– So good, no its really good.
All right, so now were stopping
by the Johnny’s Pork Roll food truck.
This (beep) has a long ass
line so it must be popular
out here in these streets.
I ordered the Hawaiian.
Got a little bit of, lets see,
some pineapple, some cheese.
What kind of cheese, what
kind of sauce is that?
– I don’t know.
It looks like some kinda fruit jam though.
Guava.
Maybe some guava jam.
– Some type of barbecue,
jam, some pineapple and
of course the pork roll in there.
Let me ask you something.
– What’s up?
– Pineapple on pizza, how
do you feel about that?
– Delicious.
– Samesies.
– If you don’t like
pineapple on your pizza,
you’re going to hell.
And remember, I used to be a youth pastor.
Anyways, over here I got that
grilled cheese deliciousness.
Now, grilled cheese is
one of those sandwiches.
Aside from just melting
the cheese on the inside,
you can add whatever you
want to it to elevate it.
– Yeah, yeah.
– Nice crusty bread.
We have bacon and the
pork roll and a little
tomato in there.
Thank you very much.
– Yeah, yeah.
– Whoa hold on, look at that.
– What’s that, what’s that,
what that, what’s that.
– Oh yeah get that nice cheese pull,
get that nice cheese pull–
– Awww.
– All right, cheers.
– Very good.
– That’s good.
– A little herby rye bread.
I’d say its herby.
Rye bread, I don’t know what
that taste is in rye bread.
But it’s that–
– It’s rye.
– It’s rye.
– It’s rye, its rye is what it is.
– Rye, rye, rye, rye.
I love, just like I like
a Hawaiian pizza right.
Saltiness of the ham or pork roll,
sweetness of the pineapple.
I like the ends of the
bacon so I’m gonna go ahead
and the eat the booty.
– It’s nice.
It’s like Hawaiian pizza.
– Exactly like Hawaiian pizza.
This is Hawaiian pizza.
– Which one do you like better?
– I like this one better.
– You know I like that one better.
– I wish they put this pineapple in there.
– I wish, that’s what I was gonna say,
this one is a lot of salty for me.
A little bit of whatever sauce on here,
with a pineapple in here.
Something a little sweeter just
to kind of like cut the fat
like we always say.
– That’s right.
– Maybe some type of slaw.
Something man, you know.
– Yeah, you know we
just don’t want that one
note, you know what I’m saying.
– You know what I’m saying.
Even a little bit of like
ketchup in here woulda been nice.
– Yeah man, we like that symphony.
– Cowabunga dude, thanks for
having us, Pork Roll Festival.
Hey man, I really enjoyed
my first little radical
pork roll experience.
– Yeah, man.
She said she turned me into Superman.
– You look like a superhero geisha.
– What she turn me into?
– Oh my God.
What was your favorite
thing you ate today?
– Today is has to be the
pork roll ice cream sandwich.
That thing was out of this world.
– OK yeah, that was some
next level (beep) right there.
For me honestly, I really
liked just that first
breakfast sandwich we had.
Real simple, just bread,
cheese, egg, pork roll.
I was feeling that.
– Delicious.
Delicious.
– Well hey guys, thanks for
