Where Can I Get Good Fresh Mozzarella in Bergen County?

Jerry's in Englewood is great. Authentic italian specialties at reasonable prices. (south dean street) fresh pasta, big selection of cheeses, olives and they even have a bakery. They also opened a smaller location in Ridgewood, which also sells their fresh mozzarella.

Is it possible to find great Indian food in Bergen County area?

Just tried Tandoori Chef in Hackensack. Food was delicious. In particular the lamb vindaloo. Clean and warm atmosphere. although service was a little slow, the food made up for it. samosas were great esp. the veggie one-great spices. looking fwd to checking out their daily $10 lunch buffet. BYOB
(also tried Talk of the Town a few mths ago and we were not impressed)

North Jersey (Paterson) Cuban Food

Just came back from a great Cuban meal at Casual Habana Cafe. Food was delicious, i got the oxtails. excellent. portions were good, we all left fully content and making plans to come back. Inexpensive authentic cuban food, not to mention BYOB, makes this a great find.

We just ate some delicious indian food from the recommended Indian Chef in Int'l Food Warehouse Lodi NJ. Flavors were authentic and the lamb esp. was really good. (vindaloo). 16 oz. container of lamb 8.95 or chicken 6.95 (masala)

Definitely going to keep this place on our take out rotation!

Kailash in Ridgewood is pretty good as well. nice lunch specials.

Ice Cream Shops in Bergen County

Italian style gelateria in Elmwood Park: Four Seasons off of Market St is buonissimo. Family owned and operated, you have to try all the flavors esp. Nocciola.

Buffalo wings in Bergen County?

Mario's Pizza in Maywood has really good wings. My favorite is getting them mild with hot sauce on the side, they are meaty fried deliciousness.
