USA Yogurt Recommendations

Why not just make your own. Its a simple method(just google it), plus its much cheaper and you can control what goes into it. In NJ I can buy a gallon of organic milk for $5.99 and a starter cup of organic yogurt for a $1.50. This gives you 10 servings. Save the last 4oz for the next batch.

Mitsuwa Edgewater NJ sashimi quality

Premade sushi is poor anywhere you get it. Having said that I like the quality of their "sushi" grade fish that they sell.

Looking for the Best Northern NJ Cheese Shops

I love Maywood Market, but you can't taste any of the cheeses and you have to be careful, some of the wrapped cheese are a little old.

Jersey barbecue freaks prepare yourselves - Mighty Quinn's to open in Clifton

We live close by and have been a number of times. She hits it right on the head. They need to do some work on the BBQ. I found the beef rib very tough, but the burger was good. BTW the beef rib at Mighty Quinns was great but expensive at $23.

Sticky's Hillsdale

Got takeout on Sat. The place was packed. Called the order in was told 30 minutes . Got there 30 minutes later and waited 30 minutes for the food to be ready. Ordered beef ribs and got sliced beef, which was tough. So were the pork ribs. Asked for no sauce, everything was swimming in it. None of the meats we ordered seem to be cooked enough. The sides were good. They have got a lot of work to do.

Where are the Northern Jerseyans?

But your in for $35-$40(tolls and parking) before you get to the resto. Besides the parking hassle.

Where are the Northern Jerseyans?

N.E Bergen
Davey's and the new 15 Grand in Montvale for excellent burgers
Grange in Westwood for "new American"
Osso Buco in Hillsdale for red sauce Italian
Almost any where in Pal Park or Ft Lee for Korean food.
Gen in Woodcliffe Lake for sushi
Karavalli in Nanuet(NY) for top notch Indian.
These are just a few in my very local neighborhood.

Is it me, or is Fairway in Paramus taking a turn for the worse?

Have you been to the Totowa Fairway? I find this store to be superior to Paramus. They always seem to have specials that don't show up in Paramus. $5.99 Moz, olive oil on sale, bulk sales and a nice beer selection. Because it was a Pathmark its quite a bit bigger than the Paramus store and they haven't started moving everything around like they keep on doing in Paramus. They have also have a few good prime meat sales in the last few months.As far as Carrados goes if you are very selective there are very good deals to be had on produce. The meats and cheeses are a different story.

Bogie's Hoagies in Hawthorne

I went right after it opened. Good cheese steak (but expensive, $10). Not worth making a special trip for it.

Dinner Saturday - Need your fav. Bergen BYO ideas please

Went for dinner last night. Good service, small room, easy parking right in front. The food was good not great. The usual choices for Rodizio. The salad was excellent, my kids wolfed the fries and we liked the rice and beans. There were very good wine glasses for a place like this and people were bringing nice bottles. $205 all in for six of us. The deal at lunch is $15 for all you can eat Rodizio.

Temp-taions bakeware

I've had my set around two years. No problems with them, but do not use them in an oven over 450. My server is made out of metal and comes in handy when your bring the cassarole to the table. We have stoneware lids and plastic lids for the refrig.
Its nice to have matching stoneware at a dinner party. When I bought my set the price was only a few bucks more than the single large one.

Where to find Veggie dumplings with spinach dough in NJ?

Not a restaurant, but H Mart has them frozen to steam a home.

Need recommendations on where to buy "appetizers"

If you're into dumplings and dimsum type items, H Mart in Ridgefeild has a real good selection of frozen items. The quality seems to be better than most other Orental markets. They also have a good selection of fresh made items and will probably be open on Christmas

Rockland County best kept secrets..

Just a point about Rockland farm, The butcher shop is Halal like you would see in Paterson NJ. Right next door is Kalavari. A top notch Indian resto with a huge menu that has a section of Jewish style Indian food, besides northern and southern Indian food. If you like it spicey they'll make it for you.

New Addition to Palisades Mall Restaurants

There's one in Clifton NJ. Salty frozen shellfish. Not worth the time.

Polish Restaurants Near Parsippany

Polish Smak is a really great deli for breakfast sandwiches and lunch . They have a smaller selection then Piast of hot dishes. They hit all the high notes. The hero bread they use on their sandwiches is above the norm. I've taken home the stuffed cabbage and was very satisfied, plus the women who work there are very nice.

Mexican chorizo in MHV

Why not try making it yourself. Its as easy as making hamburger and its always fresh. I tend to get my ground pork in a Chinese butcher(it tends have more fat and courser ground than supermarket ground pork). Google Mexican Choriso for ingrediants which can be purchased at your Mexican market.

Where to find Spanish saffron?

If you look online for Sahar Saffron you wil find a great selection of Spanish, Greek, Afgani, Italian, Morrocan and Kashmir(I think the best). They have the newest crop and if you want to compare they have a assorted deal for $76. I've bought from them the last two years and have been very satisfied.

Banh Mi in Kam Man in Edison

Rockland Bakery in Nanuet

In an area where the bakery situation is poor Rockland excells for good rolls, rye bread and challah. The italian bread is ok but not great. They've recently tried to make "artisinal" loaves and rolls, again good not great. Having said this its my go to place for bread and occasional Danish. I would probably go to Costco more offen but the parking and size(too big) of the packaging generally stops me.

Spuntino in Clifton

Actually I did like Grimaldis. I've been twice for lunch. Had Ceasar salad, romaine,crotons, and a creamy dressing; no hint of anchoives. The 1st time was a ind. white pie w/eggplant .Grat flavors but the crust was a little soft fomy liking. It was more than enough for one person and my wife liked it reheated. The 2nd pie was tomato, jalepeno, and sausage again great flavor but I wish the crust was a little crisper. I can appreciate the softer crust just not my style. This was a small pie which is probaly good for three hungary eaters. Both meals in the $20 range, so good value. Nice service. The waiter had a handlebar moustace. The owner was around to make sure everything went well. They also have a salad bar w/cold cuts for $10 at lunch

Spuntino in Clifton

Ok food if your in the area. Young loud crowd that seems alot louder because of all of the hard surfaces, comparable to Boom Burger. They try to make a big deal about the wine by having someone come over and present the bottle(a procesco in our case) but no one ever came back to pour any other glasses. 5 dishes + one bottle of wine= $100 not including tip. I work near the place so I'll probably go back for lunch. Didn't try any pizza. Went to Grimaldis for that, but thats a different story.

Mexican Restaurants in Bergen County

Its in Passaic on Monroe St. Its basically the same food wise. The room is pretty dark (I've only gone for tacos at lunch, so maybe the entrees are different). Lately the quality of the Englewood location seems to have gone down a bit. It seems to have gotten a little bland. Monroe St has a wealth of inexpensive Mexican restos and supermarkets and butchers.
