"I believe that was a Hungarian food called "sulana" "

Sure is!!

Also known as 'speck' and 'dirty bread', all served open faced.

That's the beauty of NJ, ethnic foods become native fare.

Pork fat roasted in the oven is even better.

Most of those foods were born of hard times.

Please also list the restaurants that serve them, so that I can try them out! Thanks

Disco Fries! Fries with brown gravy and cheese. I prefer American, some prefer Mozzarella.

Also, I made up my own concoction, which is awesome. Same thing, except instead of Fries, do chicken fingers. Sounds bad, tastes AMAZING.

Third, how about Pizza Burgers? Burger with Tomato sauce and Mozzarella!

The kids and I just had a fried food frenzy the other day at Circus
I love that place!
And Windmill!
2 Great picks, Giantwon.

Wow - thanks everyone for the information. Can't wait to try them out (think I will try them out over a few months so that I don't suddenly clog my artery... )

I like mine with a side of corned beef hash (well done - I tell them "burn it")from a diner.
Yessir - after I read the description of this sandwich, I also thought ketchup was the focal point of it....

I have a couple of follow up question -- first, what is the "normal" portion for these? For example, how many hot dogs (rippers?) one would eat in one seating? I'm a regular-weight guy. Second, what do you eat with these junk foods? I saw the pickle bar suggestion with the pastrami sandwich - what goes with disco fries, fat darrel, italian hot dogs, etc.?

I'll report back once I tried some of these (and maybe how many pounds I gained ).

The Italian hot dog is sometimes served with fries, though they're not really necessary since there are potatoes on the roll. I'd think the Fat Darrell doesn't really need a side, since it's got french fries right on the sandwich itself.
