Local Seafood Restaurants in Ocean and Monmouth County

I just had dinner at The New Yolanda's River House in Ocean Gate, NJ. It was great! The service was outstanding, the dinners were wonderful and everyone must try the keylime pie. It's like none I've every had.

Green Leaf Thai Food in Lakehurst

Bobd8487, Lakehurst doesn't have to be "casual" because it's not Red Bank or NYC. Italy's Best certainly has a lovely dining room though the shopping center that it's located in is really the pits.

CatladyJan I would recommend you go to Fischer Blvd in TR or up to Wall for good Thai food.

Green Leaf Thai Food in Lakehurst

ronniesue.. You are right! Tina is right there greeting all her guests and has spoken about Tina's in Trenton. I go through Allentown often. What do you recommend at La Piazza?

Easy Beef Stew

Great easy recipe! I added the frozen mixed veggies as Luv2cook831 did and it was perfect. I made it the day before serving and it was delish!

*TorontoTips... "leftover stew" is what remains after you've completed your meal to be used at another time. It is then, "left over" to be used for a future meal. I'm always delighted to make extra of a good recipe as my family loves left overs!

Green Leaf Thai Food in Lakehurst

Recordweb, if you don't mind driving to Lakewood, Village Pizza at 4715 State Route 9
has really good Falafal and other Israeli choices. It does have casual seating. I used it for take-out for a party and was very pleased with their salads and wraps. Have you found the Turkish market on Route 166? They have lots of interesting things especially since you do take-out. I cannot speak for ingredients re Green Leaf. I've already taken that one off my list. :)

Green Leaf Thai Food in Lakehurst

I definitely do not own a restaurant of any kind. I do think this is a venue to let people know of good and not so good experiences so I posted my thoughts. I enjoy good food and would drive a distance to have it. I have favorite restaurants in Bordentown - Marcello's for Italian, Newark - Iberias for Portugese as well as Toms River and Lakehurst for some other types.

Recordweb, have you tried for breakfast the new place on Water Street near the Post Office called Poppy's Place? It's a keeper! As far as Greenleaf Thai, you are right about the place looking boring. For chinese I prefer Great Wok also in Lakehurst. It's consistantly good - but it is for chinese as the chef is good, but there isn't a Thai selection on that menu.

Poppy's Place "A Blast From the Past" Toms River, NJ

I had breakfast today at Poppy's Place near the Post Office on Water Street. What a treat. The homey atmosphere with lots of 50's memorabelia greated me as well as Tina the owner how seated me and my friend. The food was wonderful. We had delicious blueberry pancakes, eggwhites and fresh fruit cup. The menu is for breakfast and lunch and the prices are certainly modest. Hope everyone in the area gives it a try.

Blue Fountain Restaurant Toms River RT37

I've always had a good meal at the Blue Fountain. All the meals are consistently good from breakfast right through to dinner. They make an awesome corned beef and cabbage too.

Green Leaf Thai Food in Lakehurst

I thought everything was just "dumped" on the plate. Nothing looked appealing and by the way the plates were boring and the linens all had holes (and that was just the first week). I would never compare Green Leaf to Siam Basil which is awesome and great atmosphere. Green Leaf is just blah green and the wait staff is polite, but no comparison to Siam Basil which really is a class act.

What a different experience from mine. Every part of our meal was awful. I could not compare it to Basil Siam. Disgustibg presentation and unrecognizable flavors

Green Leaf Thai Food in Lakehurst

I ate there once. I will not return. Don't waste time or money going there. There were 2 people at my table and one dinner came out 10 minutes after the other. The presentation of dreadful and the taste was worse. I could go on and on about things that were not good at that restaurant.
