Best new (old) Diner !

Haven't been to the Mark Twain diner in Union for years, heard they were closed 7 months remodeling and a new Chef...well the change has been spectacular .....the food isn't good, it's GREAT !!....the service also, and the cakes and pastries no other restaurant can compare....usually when the portions are large the quality suffers,...not here, the meats and fish are of pristeen quality, it's a half mile from the Parkway and is mine, and many others new go-to eating place.

New Asian Supermarket in Springfield?

A well stocked, clean huge store, but it appears the meat and fish departments stock many frozen varieties, and a lot less fresh.

And the Winner is............

Since I love quality Chinese food and live near two quality Chinese restaurants, The Golden Cantonese on Rt. 22 east in Bound Brook and across the road is the Chengdu 1,...both opened last year...I have had dinner several times at both, and declare the winner to be the Golden Cantonese.....Chengdu is very good,...Golden Cantonese is very VERY good....of course, strictly IMO

New Jersey's Best Bars

WHAT, is a "best bar ??".....what constitutes a "best bar ?"

Happy birthday dear, the butcher wasn't very pleasant.

Once I went to John's in Scotch Plains and my order came to $75.00
....I asked the counterman for a receipt (which they never give)
and suddenly he said he made a mistake, and refunded me $8.00
.....how coincidental, but I have heard of their reputation....

Water & Wine restaurant in Watchung?

Been to W&W twice and really good food,...also they serve 3 oz
liquors for average prices which is very unusual....one complaint, their valet parking is a no choice parking, they either park your car or no entering the restaurant, and this type of extortion is condoned ny management, also at LaGriglia

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
