For those who experience wanderlust through the quest to try new foods, the loss of intrepid traveler Anthony Bourdain was devastating — and not just for those who love to travel for food experiences, but the culinary world in general. And now, there’s a new way to relive the food adventures Bourdain inspired.

Only weeks after Bourdain’s death, a bill was introduced in New Jersey to create an Anthony Bourdain Food Trail in the state. That memorial for the famed chef, who was actually raised in the small suburban town of Leonia, New Jersey, is now reality, according to a report by NJ.com and officially opened for business on June 13.

The food trail features 10 different stops throughout New Jersey, where Bourdain filmed a 2015 episode of his CNN show Parts Unknown, noted by an official Anthony Bourdain Food Trail plaque. If you’re ready to check out some of Bourdain’s favorite culinary experiences across New Jersey, here are all of the stops along the trail:

For those with a trip to Vietnam in the works, you can also take a Bourdain-inspired food tour that kicks off in Ho Chi Minh City. The highlight is a visit to Hanoi, where you’ll eat at the same spot Bourdain ate bun cha with Barack Obama.

In the meantime, read up on the timeless lessons Bourdain taught us about travel — and life.
