South Jersey, specifically, has a unique food culture that blends elements of Philadelphia cuisine, Southern cooking, and Jersey Shore specialties. Here are some iconic foods and dishes you might encounter in South Jersey:


Cheesesteaks & Hoagies (Subs): While Philly is known for its cheesesteaks, South Jersey has its own versions that are just as delicious. The same goes for subs. South Jersey is serious about its hoagies (or subs, depending on where you’re from). Some popular spots have their own signature hoagie combinations.


Taylor Ham/Pork Roll: This is THEE quintessential New Jersey breakfast meat. You can't beat a pork-roll, egg, and cheese breakfast sandwich. The debate over whether it’s called Taylor Ham or Pork Roll is a uniquely Jersey thing!


Seafood: Being close to the shore, South Jersey has fantastic seafood options. Look for fresh catches like crabs, clams, oysters, and local fish prepared in various ways from simple steaming to elaborate seafood platters.


Italian food: You won't find better! Any resident will tell you that.

Apparently, South Jersey is also home to some of the best sushi in the state.
