Amazing Peruvian in Lambertville

I had a truly amazing Peruvian meal at El Tule in Lambertville, NJ this weekend. The ceviche sampler contained three ceviches that could have come from the best cevicheria in Lima. Fresh, creamy, with interesting blends of flavors. I loved the aromatic parihuela (fish) soup with pieces of lobster, crab, muscles, and fish. We also ordered the rice pudding and tres leches cake. The cake was the best rendition of tres leches I've ever tried. The service by Jack and his Peruvian family was gracious and attentive. I'd highly recommend this gem! (They also serve Mexican food, but we ordered off the Peruvian menu.)

Do you know the way to San Jose?: Amazing and cheap Costa Rican food

I just had a truly fantastic Costa Rican meal at Restaurante Donde Luis in Trenton, NJ. The fish ceviche for $8.50 had the right blend of fish, lemon, red onion, and cilantro. A little of the chili sauce gave it a nice zing. Then I had the house specialty sopa marinera (seafood soup with rice), a bargain at $11.95. The soup had a beautiful medley of muscles, octopus, fish, lobster, and crab, and an incredible flavor. I can only guess at the ingredients in the broth base-yummy! Luis came out and introduced himself to see if we were happy with the food. The decor is basic; the food is authentic, delicious, and cheap. The address is 346 Emory Street and Division; telephone is 609-456-3454.
