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.

Is that Portuguese bbq place open on the edge of matawan and cliffwood? I always wanted to try it but yelp said it was closed when I just looked.

It's prob a little far but garlic shrimp and chorizo take out from costa Verde is awesome! I toast up those sausage pieces and get them a little crispy

Mark is that little Szechuan the one in little silver? Last time I got take out I was really dissapointed. Have you ever had ming Ying in long branch? It's Americanized but better in my eyes. I thought the little silver place was ok years ago. Portions seem smaller with a higher cost and less flavor.

or maybe you have some inside info on some secret dishes at little Szechuan ; )

Phillys in atlantic highlands

Glad you liked it Coldsolder. I went to copper canyon last night so I have to keep it cheap tonight and might have to swing by Phillys. I haven't been in a while. The last cheesesteak I had there wasn't great but it appears they are back on track. The last few visits were other subs.

yes...plenty of seats Mark. If you can I'd try to go with someone so you can split a cheese steak and the italian Roast pork (try a half of each.)

The chicken murphy steak is pretty interesting.

Make sure to try the roasted pepper or hot cherry pepper. It comes complimentary (choose one)

yeah they are super cool. I actually love making ribeye cheese steaks but the chicken steaks come out great too and cost a fraction of the price ...and are heathier....still nothing beats a juicy ribeye cheese steak even if the prices of ribeyes are sky high.

I eat out a lot but agree with this. Years ago I bought a deli slicer just to make cheese steaks (shave the meat)....quite an investment and I can make some killer steaks.

I think they serve those because they don't know how to make cheesesteaks up there LOL

I don't know the answer ....never seen something like that.
