New Restaurant in South Amboy

There's an old bar in South Amboy called The Halfway House that's being renovated. I was wondering if anyone knows what's going in there. It's on the corner of Ridgeway Ave. and Raritan St.

Sayreville Tavern

Are you referring to the Sayreville Bar on Cecilia St (sp)? I didn't know it was closed. Hmmm

Dumplings

Hi todao,

I tried your recipe and I think I've got it. At first I made big dumplings, but when I got to the end I made smaller ones. My problem was that I didnt let them cook long enough. The smaller ones had the right chewy consistency. The larger ones were floury inside. My hubby was very happy with the small ones. Now I know to cook them longer. Thanks so much.

Where to get veal bones in central NJ?

I have seen them on occasion at Shop-Rite on Ernston road. Its either Parlin or Sayreville. If you don't see them, ask the butcher if he can order them for you. I have also gotten pork neck bones that make a delicious stock.

Dumplings

I am looking for a more dense texture. I will try to leave out the leavening agent and see what happens. (as soon as the weather gets cooler again).

Dumplings

My husband loves chicken and dumplings and I haven't been able to create a decent dumpling after many attempts. Does anyone out there have a good recipe for dumplings?

Fish and Chips

I live in South Amboy and I am dying to find a place that makes good fish and chips. Whenever I have the urge I have to make it myself. Any suggestions????

Stewarts Drive-Ins

Unfortunately that building has been razed. My dad had a Stewart's on Englishtown Road in Old Bridge in the 80's. I remember making plenty of root beer floats.

Food Snob or Food Lover?

Miracle Whip uses a rancid oil which is cheaper than a fresh oil. They market this and most of the consumers cannot detect rancidity in oil (which I find really strange) I guess that I have a nose for that.

Food Snob or Food Lover?

I think it's important to be open to anything whether you are either a food snob or food lover. If you don't try, you may be missing something really great. I have been accused of being a food snob but, how can that be when I am addicted to Ring Dings, lol.
