Thai food in Central Jersey

went back yesterday for lunch. ordered their special called Yummi Yummi (sp?). Will never order again. no flavor at all, but they sprinkled hot spice right on top of the rice. dish is extremely hot for medium i ordered, and i like hot and had very little flavor. service was also so so. they were short staffed. compare to basil fried rice with chicken i had before, it was not worth eating.
i also came to realize something, they must have changed the chef, because the quality is going down on most things. not just my opinion. heard the same from several friends who are from the same region, though not Thai and have been customers for some time (read several years). too sad, as i really like their basil fried rice with chicken

JustJake, Far East in Eatontown is not gone. I had lunch there today, right after I posted. if desperate, i will go back again, but it is not on my "go to" list. i will probably get fish next time to try, but today basil shrimp, was on the dry side and shrimp was breaded and there was too much broccoli to taste the basil sauce.
i have been to Four seasons once, but probably picked the wrong dish as it left not much of an impression on me. will try again.

Thai food in Central Jersey

want to revive this discussion since things have changed but good Thai is still a challenge in Central NJ
my favorite place is Chao Phaya Thai Cuisine in Somerset. so far it beat out a couple of NYC Thai restaurants.
also tried the Thai is Seagirt. not half as good but still decent.
am going to try Far East in Eatontown to see how it does. no idea on the quality, but they are still open.

Any others in Central NJ that anyone can recommend?

Butcher in south central NJ?

Thank you HungryRubia. Any other suggestions? I will look into it, but this is about 1 hour away from me in the direction I normally do not travel. Thanks

Butcher in south central NJ?

Can someone point me to a butcher in Monmouth, Middlesex, possibly Ocean counties or Franklyn area of Somerset county? Preferably along route 18? I have been looking for a long time, but found nothing. Your help is appreciated. Thanks
