Shanghai Dumpling Chinese Restaurant in Edison, NJ

XLB... such willpower! So we went and will return! We ordered Shanghai noodles with pork I think... it was really good! We ordered XLB and had a split decision. I think SB is better, husband thinks these were better. Now, the real problem is we only go to Edison for Wonder Seafood. We went here becasuse we were in the hood and weren't hungry! We forced ourselves to take one for the team! The dishes coming out looked so good we ordered twice!

Krakowiak Restaurant - Polish in South River NJ

What an experience! I have been there and the food is great. What a loss, I would never want to deal with what you went through. As I was reading your post I was wondering if maybe that was a robbery in progress and they just wanted you out.. but then again he said he didn't want your money! What a weird experiene you had! Thanks for sharing your story.. wow!

Tapas52 I always enjoy your posts! Not only are they entertaining, but you always try new places and share your findings! I love Cuban food and even though I live no where near Tom's River your words are too chow worthy... I'll have to make the trip!

Good values good food specials and deals at chowhound worthy places

What a great post! Why didn't I think of it! I love this!
Uva in Bradley Beach Mon- Thurs specials. We went for 1/2 price pasta I think it was a Monday. The first time it was excellent, the second good. However, certainly worth going a third time. Each night is a different special.
Porta has a lunch special for $10.
Basille's in Freehold has a coupon for lunch I think it is buy one one half price.
Solo in Freehold has a lunch special get a ticket punched for each lunch and the 10th lunch is free.
La Cashina on Rt 34 in Mattawan has coupons on their website for various deals. All of these restaurants are good, not five star but certainly good and worthy of trying. We have been to each one several times.
Again livingloving what a great post thank you!

Good place for a business meeting close to the NJ side of Staten Island?

Noya hope you see this! Went to Cafe Luna for lunch yesterday and realized I should have told you they have a different menu for lunch and dinner. Both are really good but for a business lunch you may want the dinner menu. They will also happily accommodate any special requests. Hope you enjoy as much as we always do, and your meeting goes well.

Red Bank Restaurants

We are going too can't wait! Via 45 is really good and they offer vegetarian options in their specials as well. However, you might need a reservation, it is not inexpensive but food is great.

Food trucks & fire pits in Jackson on May 18 Sunday

oh well... all we saw was the parking lot. We got there and a friend called needing a hand, of course we are not busy...
It looked lovely! It sounds lovely! I signed up for their email list and hope to actually be able to attend a future event. Thanks for all the info it sounds like a great find. We also saw an interesting Asian Fusion restaurant on our way. It is called Wok and Roll. Despite the cutsey name it looked worthy of a try. Will write after we check it out. Wish we could have gone to Laurita, but so appreciate the info. Thanks again Foody4Life .

Really appreciate your kindness Foody4life. I've never heard of Laurita Winery till you wrote about it. This sounds like something we would enjoy. Will try to rearrange weekend plans, thanks so much for sharing.

Patsy's East Harlem - slices or whole pie?

I can't believe I saw your post!!! I grew up in East Harlem! About a hundred years ago. I would go to Patsy's for a slice as often as I could afford the 15 cents! Then one day I took my dog George for a walk and stopped in. The kind pizziaol gave my dog some cheese, and then George begged for more and more! It became a ritual with us. I was about 10 and so was George!
Now that I am George's age in dog years, when ever I am in the city I drive by an order a pie to go which my family devours before the car gets in gear! Enjoy an extra slice or three for me!

Andrew Zimmern coming to the Count Basie Theater on August 1, 2014

ooh so glad you posted this! I was thinking about getting tickets but... I don't know? What is he going to do eat on stage??? I enjoy watching his show but I also like Anthony Bourdain. I don't know why either of them would be better in person. However, I also love Kenny G music and that was my first live show, and since then I am addicted to seeing musicians that I enjoy play. Is it them with food? Please tell me why you bought tickets. I want to go, I think...?

Soft shell crabs

I always thought not to eat them till after Memorial day or it was a waste of money. I dip them in flour S&P then fry them in olive oil and butter. Or throw them on the BBQ naked. Either way they are great and easy to cook.

Good Sushi in Monmouth county? Where do you go?

Morning MGZ! We went last night and everyone really enjoyed... even me! I had fried shrimp dumplings.. two orders please since everyone else had to try mine! Seaweed salad, and sauted scallops all appetizers others had to taste too! I was very happy with my food! . My family ordered rolls, and sashimi unfortunately I asked on the way home what they had and have forgotten since them.. but they liked everything a lot! We all said we would happily be back with thanks MGZ!
My kids like Avenue East in Cranford for Sushi, and Mambo Sushi I think they said??? We were told it would be a 40 minute wait for sushi, so we ordered apps and the wait went fast. A great meal much appreciated! After reading your link I am glad Kazu moved too!!
