Anything new in Monmouth County?

just wanted to say we went to diaz flavor this past saturday after it kept popping up on chowhound...loved it!..right up my alley..all about the food..everyone was really nice, friendly, service great...hard not to be attentive in a place that size...started with the mofungo which was best i've had..then had the skirt steak which was like butter with tostones on the side..my friend had the chicken breast in garlic with rice and beans on the side but managed to help with my steak..thought prices were reasonable and i am excited to go back and try several other things on the menu...

Niko's Trapezi A Greek Taverna Long Branch NJ

we went the first friday after it opened...i think it had been open for three or four days..i initially stopped by out of curiousity after reading the original post..they were shocked when i told them about chowhound and i wrote down the website for them...everyone was very friendly, enthusiastic and patient answering all of my questions...i came back a few hours later..the interior is comfortable, no pretense, wasn't noisy..i had the moussaka (sp) and my friend had the lamb chops...both were fantastic but if you are a fan of moussaka then order it..it was very well seasoned not heavy-handed...really good...we were both so stuffed but they brought us a huge slice of galaktobouiko...who cares if you can't pronounce it-order it! hard to articulate the flavor but it seemed almost like flan wrapped in phyllo drizzled with honey...believe me, i'm not doing it justice...whatever, we are still talking about it...i am thrilled this place opened, especially since it's within walking distanceand prices are more than reasonable..

Good, falafel Union Square, not Rainbow?

haven't tried it but everyone i work with loves the falafel at 'push' on 3rd at 23rd...i myself love maoz....

May 23, 2007
mindy in Manhattan

more maoz!!!!

i know that falafel tends to be a hot topic....and very subjective...a friend from work was ecstatic about this recently opened spot as she had lived in amsterdam where i think it originated...it is on the east side of union square, park avenue south...very reasonably priced and well worth the trip...the pita was sooo fresh,not one thing negative i can think of...i had them wrap it and it was still warm when i arrived home and gobbled it down.....some falafel tends to be "heavy"...this was light, fresh....fantastic...i like the idea of the options....with feta, with hummus etc. and the fact that you can have a "junior" size...there is a website maozveg.com...i see many falafel in my future...
