Roosterspin Korean Fried Chicken in Westfield

BEST FRIED CHICKEN I have had in a long time,...Popeye's is very good, KFC, is garbage....Roosterspin's is crispy and tasty, Korean prepped, expensive but well worth it,...there are two other couples I have recommended to, and all 4 loved it....

What Is America's Worst Restaurant Chain?

People must understand the White Castle hamburger has several components...the beef, is tasty when not dried out, the bun absorbs some of the tasty grease which enhances the bun, and the onions add subtle flavor......

What Is America's Worst Restaurant Chain?

THERE IS good grease and bad grease,....good fresh grease can enhance the taste of most foods if not overdone,...the bad grease is the rancid type.

Wolfgang's in Somerville has opened...

SAMMY'S....never again !!....they rush you to the bar downstairs, even tho' there are empty tables, saying their reserved...which is b.s.....I had to tell them I was a recovering alcoholic (lie) to avoid going to the bar, then I got a table and service immediately....there are better steakhouses IMO, without the attitude.....

New Asian Supermarket in Springfield?

A former Kings supermarket closed in Berkely Heights a couple

Some questions for my NJ friends about our home board...

WHAT kills a food/restaurant website is the bloggers attacking each other viciously somewhat like NJ.Com, which is practically out of business after being so popular years ago, then the attackers took over, result; death of the website.....CH has maintained civility over the years and that's important.

Ryland Inn in the last year?

Been there once, not impressed....they change Chefs frequently
which adds to the disorder,....for the price, not worth it,....give it maybe another year.....

Prime Rib.........

Requesting a restaurant that serves great beefy tasting prime rib
instead of the usual tasteless slabs of beef,...will travel if it's great.

Fried Chicken

IT'S worth it to travel to the new "Roosterspin" in Westfield,.
fried chicken lovers who I have urged them to go say unaniminously that it the best fried chicken they (and I) have ever tasted.....Korean style, twice fried, light, very tasty crisp and super delicious......wherever you live, you'll say it was worth the trip !!!

Is there a decent Cheesesteak in Northern NJ?

MANNY'S DINER in Clark,..an upscale diner/restaurant..comparable to the legendary Hy's Cheesecake in Maplewood years ago,....people still blog on Chowhound about Hy's.....Manny's is light, not dense, and all around excellent....I have recommended Manny's to others and they all said excellent......it's worth a trip if you love exceptional cheesecake....also less than a mile from the GSP exit....

We all know it happens, but we never like to think it actually does... [moved from New Jersey board]

YES, there should be more camera's in kitchens...but the owners don't want to incur the expense, and some probably don't care if the chef spits either

I don't think so, as my Father would have known Gargiulas, this place was small, as best as I can remember from 70 years ago.

Once I seen a counterguy mashing down a burger on the grill, I knew it would be my last 5 Guys visit.

BEST chicken wings ever !!

Went to a new restaurant in Westfield, one month old...Roosterspin, owned by a Korean woman,....their menu reads, "Famous Fried Chicken"....but we've all heard that one before,...after finishing off 12 large meaty pieces, I realized, THIS IS the best I have tasted, including the originals in Buffalo NY !!......thin crispy coating, and moist tasty interior
....they deep fry them twice to burn off the fat, then coat them with either a soy-garlic or hot spicy sauce, I had the soy-garlic,
the very nice server said the chicken are the most popular on the menu...not your gloppy sauced as usuals,....totally different and totally delicious,....also had their creamy corn salad which was terrific also.....BYO

Back in 1944, that's right 1944, our family went to an Italian restaurant in Coney Island,....my Father was sitting near the door seen a waiter in the kitchen accidentally drop a plate of pasta on the floor, pick it up, and place it back in the plate, my Father alerted the manager....it shows this has been going on a looong time !!

The average customer really doesn't know what garbage goes on in kitchens, the spitting in food happens everywhere,...my advice;
if your sending back a dish, alert the manager, or better still, the owner...NEVER send anything back to the kitchen with the server...or better still, complain, and leave.....remember, this can occur in ANY restaurant and has........

Buying a Steak in NJ (butcher shops)

Very good,.....as long as the butchers customer is willing to pay $25.00 a lb and MORE !!....actually, one cannot critisize this butcher, he's fighting a losing battle to what he describes as "inferior prime"

AS I mentioned in another blog...Costco is my go-to for Prime, not choice, beefy taste and excellent for the $17.99 lb price...
Costco has the buying power coast to coast,...the local steakhouses don't have that luxury, consequently, much higher prices...........

Sweetwaters Steak, Westfield

Good steaks, but my Costco Prime is equal, or better, and a heck of a lot cheaper.....Costco has the nationwide buying power,....the local steakhouses don't...........
