Jordan Andino explores the Montreal food scene, and it doesn't disappoint. First, he heads to Notre Dame de Grace to try the late night discount menu at Monkland Tavern. Jordan falls in love with the braised calamari caponata, but his mind is blown by the many flavors in the soft shell crab banh mi. Next up, it's off to Moishe's, one of Montreal's oldest steak restaurants in Plateau Mont Royal. Jordan gets started with a superlative filet mignon poutine that's wowing the younger late night crowd and follows it up with grilled chicken and stuffed baked potato. Finally, he heads to Little Italy only to discover a Venezuelan hot spot serving cheesy, gooey pastries and a passionfruit pulled pork arepa that makes his heart sing.
Jordan Andino's on the west coast, checking out what Vancouver has to offer after hours. His first stop is tapas bar Espana, where he cracks into a Spanish version of a British Scotch egg and follows that up with incredible seafood paella. Next he heads to the Gastown neighborhood and stops at Clough Club, known for its twisted-up street food and cultivated cocktails. Jordan spoons up Chef Alvin's unique creation, Potachos, a mashup of tater tots and classic nachos, and takes a bite out of a Banh Mi Hot Dog. He washes it all down with Clough Club's signature drink, a lemony, floral concoction playfully called the "It's Not You, It's Me." Finally, Jordan's off to The Arbor, where meatless cuisine takes a new turn with old favorites. He chows down on crispy Baja Tacos with a mushroom twist and their top-selling late night dish, the surprisingly "meaty" Arburger.
When the sun sets on Steeltown, Jordan Andino hits the streets to uncover unexpected late night delights in Pittsburgh. First Jordan heads to The Yard in Shadyside where they're grilling up more than 29 different kinds of grilled cheese sandwiches! He tries a breakfast grilled cheese that's sure to leave egg on his face before slaying his hunger with their Buffy the Mac Slayer, which is filled with buffalo chicken and gooey mac and cheese. Then Jordan heads downtown to Caribbean-themed Pirata for flavorful Jamaican beef patties, skirt steak tacos and adventurous pirate life. Lastly, it's a trip to Umami in Lawrenceville for some mouth-watering Japanese-style fried chicken and deep-fried mochi ice cream.
Jordan Andino is in Providence, Rhode Island, a small town bursting with late night eating opportunities. He starts off in College Hill at Durk's BBQ, the city's only Texas BBQ joint, where he bites into succulent brisket nachos and gets a sweet surprise from Durk's tangy lemon chess pie. Then he heads over to Federal Hill to try a collision of flavors from all over the world at North. Jordan gets a taste of the country with scrumptious, bite-sized ham biscuits and tries Chef James Mark's Asian-inspired Dan Dan noodles, a crave-worthy late night favorite. Finally, he heads to Ogie's Trailer Park, where classic comfort foods are served to loyal customers in a unique environment. Jordan dives into a fried chicken sandwich encrusted with ranch tortilla chips and wolfs down the crowd-pleasing Mac and Cheese Croquettes that Ogie's sells by the bushel. No night is complete without a trip to their outdoor tiki bar, and Jordan rounds out his Providence experience with Ogie's take on a classic Mai Tai.
Jordan Andino hits the ground running in Portland, Maine, a tiny New England town with a lot to offer late at night. He starts off at Nosh, a late night hangout known for supersized sandwiches and over-the-top snack food. First up is a juicy burger made with four kinds of meat served on a mac and cheese bun. He tops that off with something from the "lighter side" -- gooey, golden Polenta Cheese Fries. Then, it's off to Union Wharf to test out the late night menu at Liquid Riot, Portland's only triple-threat restaurant, brewery and distillery. Jordan sinks his teeth into their gourmet lobster roll and then samples their adult ice cream sandwich infused with house-made Fernet liqueur. He wraps up his trip at Rhum Food and Grog, a basement tiki bar dishing up delicious Polynesian skewers, chicken wings with a tropical twist and flaming cocktails to boot.
