mccloones rum runner was just leveled

yeah Jr knows I like to change gears!

Yes, costa verde is good stuff. I have to try that florentine steak out.

As mentioned above, I like the chorizo, garlic shrimp, and mariscada trio. It is the best 3 bread dunking combination around! Something about that combo gets the job done...not to say that I wont mix it up or throw some clams in the mix.

Mark, I wish I was around to experience that seaside gem you spoke of....sounds right up my alley

Gaiters is for sale. Someone needs to buy that property and level the place. Imagine the roof top restaurant they could build there? That is a pretty cool location in my eyes with the ocean,sandy hook, shrewsbury river, bridge, twin lights and NYC skyline surrounding you.

Anyone want to get a petition going to have Mr McCloone hire drew as a chef? ; )

This is why a bungalow in key west is like half a mil...nothing like it in the country or probably world. I really need to get back down there soon.

I would also like a spot like this but it just doesn't exist here.

Finding a spot that even cooks with wood in NJ is pretty hard, let alone a spot on the water. I don't know of a single restaurant on/near the water cooking with wood/charcoal.

Jr you are right.

paradise do you have any good ama recommendations? I have never been there.

It is a shame we have a lot of beach front and not too many decent water front places that impress hounds.

Although the location isn't great I will throw a vote in for costa Verde as a good place with fair prices. An order of garlic shrimp, chorizo, some mariscada....a great combo with the loaf of bread they serve. Sit in the bar area for lower prices...one of my top budget seafood spots. And yes, chorizo isn't seafood but for like 7 bucks this is a good dish to throw in the mix. They also have good clams, mussells, lobsters, decent paella. Etc

Redbank late nite Eats after Count Basie show suggestions?

My vote is to drive 5 minutes and hit barnacle bills for bacon cheddar burgers. For 10 bucks they are hard to beat

Ps, I think I ate at the seafood place last summer if that is the same one I am thinking of. It is a little spot almost near the corner on the main drag (right in the heart of down.) I had some tasty clam strips.

new BBQ spot in middletown called A&L BBQ

I hear Tres Colores (aka A&L BBQ) is now serving Rutgers style "fat" sandwiches. Man, I haven't had one of those in years. Has anyone tried one?

Trivia question of the day: what was the key word to order a Long Island ice tea from grease trucks? If you knew the code they would serve you a big cup of this jungle juice lol

good food in strange places

I am happy to report I got some take out sat night and it was good. They just LOADED me up with brisket. I am not sure why but it was literally twice the normal amount I would say. I got 2 of the 3 meat platters and they tossed in 4 rolls too which was nice to make pulled pork sandwiches with. For 31 and change I had food for 3 days (seriously.... just finished it up for lunch today.) That price was after a 5.00 coupon I found in the mail.

Phillys in atlantic highlands

I had a wiz steak and the Italian Roast pork sub recently...both really good. I think this place has found their stride. Its a little on the expensive side but what isn't these days?

Oysters in Monmouth/Ocean?

If you want to dine on the water this might work
http://www.inletcafe.com/

I had some fried oysters there that were pretty good even though I am not a huge oyster guy (wife likes them.) They have raw ones too and I think some other versions.

Sea Bright Fish Co.

Mark, just out of curiosity, do you scan those menus on the road or do it back at your house?

Tapas, the batter is flavorful...not bursting with spices but tasty.

Matata Asian Cuisine - Middletown, NJ

I went last night for the first time. I was actually surprised. Going into it I said "a place making chinese, japanese and thai food" at once can't be good but I was wrong. I am not a "purist" so I will eat about anything and as long as the food is good and worth the price, I am good.

The food was pretty tasty and this place won't break the bank. It wasn't amazing but then again, the prices are fair and I would like to try a few more dishes.

We started with a 2.00 cup of hot/sour soup which was quite a large cup....well worth 2 bucks. My wife had the La Sa Tom soup (which I think should be Laksa)....nice big bowl for 5 bucks and quite tasty.

For an app we had some type of sushi press roll the waitress recommended. It as actually decent and had tuna and fried eggplant inside (strange but it worked)

Dinner was a duck dish the waitress recommended. I wanted shrimp and asked her if it was good. She hesitated and steered me into the duck. I politely asked that it come out crispy and she assured me that it would be good and crispy. She delivered and they even kept the sauce to the side so it wouldn't ruin the crispy skin....well done. This is a dish for duck people. You will have to cut around some fat and get your fingers greasy :)

And the best dish I thought was the Vietnamese beef. These tender cubes of beef were bursting with flavor and cooked medium rare which really surprised me. I am not sure what cut this was but it was prob sirloin and marinated to break down the muscle tissue. It was really tender. For 15.00 this was a decent dish. Overall, I am ok with this place.

I wonder if they have a second mandarin menu? There were some Asian customers and I might ask next time to see if they have any other creative dishes not on the regular menu.

Yeepat, I will def try the thai crispy breast.

Hazlet/North Middletown take out please...

I missed that Mark. On the topic of spice, if you are in the area try Kunya Siam in atlantic highlands. The basil duck (extra crispy) and panang curry chicken are both really good. I think I have had every dish there and those are two of my favorite (along with whole snapper.) And yes, they will make it hotter if you ask for it. I don't even like recommending this place publicly because it has been hard getting a table there lately.
