Hiram’s Roadstand | 1345 Palisade Ave, Fort Lee, NJ 07024
Bourdain stops into this roadside stalwart that’s been around since the ‘30s to get a deep fried hot dog, known as a ripper due to the fact that it rips down the center as it’s cooked, and some fries. (NR1.3, 2005)

Satin Dolls | 230 NJ-17, Lodi, NJ 07644
This strip club was used as the Bada Bing Club in The Soprano’s, which is this episode’s theme.  Tony notices that they also serve food, so he stops in for an Italian hoagie.  The club was recently shut down for six months, but is back in business.  Eat there at your own risk. (NR1.3, 2005)

Howard Johnson Restaurant | 1213 Boardwalk, Asbury Park, NJ 07712
*CLOSED* Tony stops by for nostalgia’s sake, but doesn’t trust any of the food here so he gets a grilled cheese sandwich and a Heineken. (NR1.3, 2005)

Klein’s Fish Market | 708 River Rd, Belmar, NJ 07719
Bourdain sits down for plenty of fish, including fried oysters, fried clams, swordfish, and lobster.  He mentions female lobsters are best due to the roe inside. (NR1.3, 2005)

Bobolink Dairy | 369 Stamets Rd, Milford, NJ 08848
Tony joins the cheesemakers at Bobolink for some two-year cave-aged cheddar, cheeses named Drumm, Jean Louis, and Endgame, as well as some homemade pizza. (NR1.3, 2005)

Baumgart’s Café | 45 E Palisade Ave, Englewood, NJ 07631

Mitsuwa Market | 595 River Rd, Edgewater, NJ 07020
An Asian supermarket chain, which is probably as fun to peruse as any Asian supermarket (which is a lot).  Tony swings by the food court to get a taro bubble tea. (NR1.3, 2005)

Soft Tofu Restaurant | 128 Main St, Fort Lee, NJ 07024
Tony swings by this Korean place (despite not loving tofu) to try some ban chan (traditional Korean small plates), spare ribs, and a personal favorite of mine, soondubu. (NR1.3, 2005)

Gencarelli’s Bakery | 446 Broad St, Bloomfield, NJ 07003
Bourdain swings in with Italian pastry connoisseur Mario Batali to try sfogliatelle and cannoli. The final scene of the gangster-themed episode apes the iconic Godfather “leave the gun, take the cannoli” scene. (NR1.3, 2005)
