New and authentic Mexican food in Long Branch

Got the whole fried red snapper topped off with a little oxtail sauce....killer. try this if you haven't. messy meal but if you're a whole fish guy this is a treat. Norah said she just got back from the fish market this morning so I got a fresh one.

Jersey Shore BBQ - Belmar

Yeah I was there there about two weeks ago and the brisket is top notch. It was definitely far superior to the burnt ends and pulled pork which were still tasty. corn bread is really good too.

Tommys Tavern + Tap in Sea Bright

I went to go last night and right after a thunderstorm there were people waiting outside to get in this place. I couldn't believe it. I can see on a nice beach day getting a lot of traffic but it appears this place is drawing some serious attention. I didn't want to deal with a crowd. Hopefully I can get there soon.

Welcome to the forums. So this place was so good that it inspired you to join the forums? very nice : )

MR B, yes old sals.

Amazing, a restaurant with a website that actually works and has pricing. That is quite rare. If nothing else, kudos for that.

Is it me or is that a picture of brad pitt as the chef? LOL

Porcini Highlands- Fabulous!!!

Anything good going on at the inlet mr b?

oh wow, thanks for the info. I am pretty sure it is NJ law that you have to take the tour to get samples. It is not just that brewery.

I wanted to start with a classic to get a baseline. I got the jerk chicken. It was not spicy enough at all for my tastes but still really flavorful. However, mark said next time to ask he will hook it up with some heat. I really loved the rice and beans.

Next time I think oxtails are the call. I might set up shop here with some beers and chowdown for a while one afternoon...try a few things.

The whole red snapper is definitely on my radar.

Papagayos in Long Branch

So we just ordered 7 different dishes from this place and everyone said they loved their food. The highlight would have to be the MONSTROUS al pastor burrito. This was a hefty meal....seriously. People said they loved the quesadillas and chicken enchiladas. I was in a shrimp mood so I got garlic shrimp...pretty tasty but should have stuck with something more traditional.

skype conversation...

Jonathan: how is burrito?
[2:07:48 PM] anthonyc: insanely good
[2:07:58 PM] Jonathan nice, is pork tender?
[2:09:15 PM] anthonyc: it's all little bits, some a little crunchy
[2:11:02 PM] Jonathan Dolan: nice, good flavor?
[2:11:10 PM] anthonyc.touchboards.com: yeah, real nice
[2:11:22 PM] anthonyc.touchboards.com: nice heat too

Cool, probably a back bone with a nice hunk of loin meat attached. YUM

CKE have you tried 28 east enoteca yet? On my radar. Dom is a cool guy (the chef.) Go talk to him and he will tell you what is good that night.

Birthday dinner with "wow factor" within 30 minutes of Long Branch?

yeah byob. It is honestly pretty decent....food is good, service good, atmosphere is pretty cool and not too claustrophobic. They have some cool whole fish specials on the weekends.

I forget what place but in nyc they sell those 7lb bugs for 600 dollars. I think it might be nobu...some place where kim kardashian hangs out lol. so 135 is a steal ; )

On a side note, I actually know a girl who got shot walking out of downtown asbury very close to the action. she lived but scary stuff!

JR, I actually think sirena is not bad, better than the avenue. I have been to both many times.

Actually a cool meal would be the 6 or 7 pound lobsters they get at Catch in red bank. That is something you dont see everyday around here. I think they are market price but it was 135 when I asked and they split it for 2. I plan to try one soon.

unfortunately I am not aware of anything that has amazing food and is right on the beach/water. Normally those places have mediocre food.

Will it be a party or just 2 of you?
