Where can I purchase a spice cake or square with chocolate icing on it?

I don't have a Polish bakery nearby. I will have to Google to find a few that hopefully are not too far away. I will give them a call. Hopefull one will have the wonderful combination of spice cake and chocolate. The recipe that another person who responded to my inquiry mentioned in the "Farm Journal's Country Cookbook" sounds pretty good.

Where can I purchase a spice cake or square with chocolate icing on it?

Years ago, I remember my mom purchasing spice cake squares that had a semi-hard chocolate icing on them from a bakery that used to be in Westfield. Several years ago, one of my sister's student's parents brought in a spice cake with chocolate icing for her child's birthday . She said the cake tasted like the old spice cake squares. The woman said it came from a bakery in Elizabeth. Does anyone know where I can purchase a good tasting spice cake or bar that has chocolate icing on it?

Vincente's Italian Specialties & Deli- Garwood, New Jersey

Thank you for letting me know where the bread came from. The only place I know of that has good cole slaw is Harold's New York Deli Restaurant, 3050 woodbridge avenue, Edison, NJ 08837. (732) 661-9100. Their pastrami is really good too.
I don't know of any place that has really good potato salad. I have had potato salad from King's supermarket, and it was not bad. I think I had the potato salad made with red potatoes. Kings has 3 or so different types of potato salad; ask for a taste of each if you decide to investigate.

Vincente's Italian Specialties & Deli- Garwood, New Jersey

There was a very good deli/eatery, Vincente's Italian Specialties & Deli, located on North Avenue in the Blue Ribbon shopping center. I passed by it yesterday and noticed that it was no longer there. Does anyone know if it moved or just went out of business. I would purchase the best italian bread from there. I should have paid attention to the name of the place on the front of the bag that supplied the bread to them. Does anyone know the name of the place that supplied the bread to them?

Lings Kitchen - Fords, NJ

I went to Lings and ordered several items. I was very disappointed with the food. My family and I could not finish eating the food because it was not good at all. Not until checking this site did I realize that Ling's is under new management. Do not waste your money going to this place. I even chatted with the people who are running the place and they made it seem s though they were the same owners as before Ling's burned down. I wish the name was not the same because at least people would know not to expect the same quality of food they had come to know as Ling's. I have not found a decent place for chinese food in this area. When I am in the area or feel like taking a drive, I get fabulous chinese food from Hunan Wok III which is located on East Broad Street in Westfield. It is the absolute best. It is truly worth the effort to go there and get take-out or eat in. There are only a few tables in there so I always get take-out. FABULOUS FOOD!!!

Westfield BBQ (location former Gauchos)

My family and I recently had food from Westfield BBQ. We ordered "The Westfielder" which consisted of ribs, chicken, pork chop, and sausage. It also came with yellow rice and french fries. The food was a major disappointment. It had very litle flavor and the pork chop was almost dried-out. The best thing was the french fries. Save your money and don't waste it at this place.

Gaucho's in Westfield NJ - Any Details?

Gauchos is apparently "out of business". The restaurant has been closed for several weeks and the phone number is disconnected.

Gaucho's in Westfield NJ - Any Details?

Gauchos is supposed to open today. I hard that the owner put quite a bit of money into renovating this place.
