Michigan Favorites and California's Famous Tacos

Sabin Lomac starts this trip in the historic Fishtown district of Leland, Mich., where he roughs it at the Cove with their summer-fresh Campfire Whitefish and perfect Michigan Cherry Pie that has a secret in ingredient. In Bluffton, S.C., Sabin heads to Bluffton BBQ -- a charming counter-serve spot cueing up slow-cooked, fall-off-the-bone BBQ Ribs and a juicy, perfectly smoked BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich that steals more from Kansas City than South Carolina. In Ventura, Calif., Sabin heads to Beach House Tacos to check out their deep-fried Calamari Tacos and their summer staple Beach Corn. Finally, in Portland, Maine, Sabin hits up the quirky go-big-or-go-home spot Silly's where he has a go at the Greek Havoc -- a lamb and pork burger topped with a creamy dill and cucumber sauce that transports you to the Greek Islands -- before indulging in their seven-layer Maine Blueberry Cake.
