Middle Eastern food on Main street in NJ

Hi, I'm trying to find some restaurants on Main Street around Jersey City, NJ. Would anyone be able to recommend where that is and any restaurants to try? I know there's a Middle Eastern community in Jersey City close to Journal Square but I can't remember specifically where. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Craving Korean

I haven't tried those two places. Do you recommend anything to eat there?

Craving Korean

I really like Gahm Mi Oak Restaurant for their Su long tung which is their beef soup but for vegans/vegetarians I would suggest a Bi Bim Bap, just ask for no meat with kimchi and their veggie side dishes would fill anyone up especially if you're into spicy food. I personally love their radish kimchi and I've also had their pancake which was made with I believe soy meal and it was delicious. As for something like a meat dish, any place that can serve a good Bul Go Gi or Gal Bi, like Shilla. If you're in the mood for good Chap Jae (clear noodle dish with egg and mushrooms) I'd recommend any Hah Au Reum and you can get a home made pack for about $4. I honestly haven't frequent the Queens Korean restaurants except for the Korean supermarkets. Hope this helps.

tzatziki recipe

I tried using Faga yogurt which I found at an organic store in my neighborhood and made the tzatziki sauce and it came out great! Thanks!=)

Anyone been to Engeline's in Woodside?

wow, that's a first...i was surprised even Woodside Pizza delivers to Elmhurst...most places don't deliver unless you're just a few blocks away

Decent sushi that delivers in Woodside?

Their sushi is decent. I've been there a couple of times and I love their selections since they also offer fried fish as well. They actually renovated since it used to be just a fish market and they've expanded to include fried fish and sushi.

Anyone been to Engeline's in Woodside?

Ecua-Mex was pretty good for traditional Mexican/Ecuadorian food. I was sad to see it go...it's hard to find good authentic Mexican food anywhere around Queens. I know the cart under the 61th st station has good tamales.

Decent sushi that delivers in Woodside?

I would highly recommend Ariyoshi in Sunnyside but they don't deliver in Woodside...unfortunately....there's one right on 52nd st close to 53rd by the train station. I haven't tried it though so I don't know if they're any good. Worth a try.

Queens boy trying to re-experience childhood foods

There's a Bagels Plus in Woodside? Where exactly? I haven't heard of this place...is that the one right across from a Nancy's Boutique?

Best Cupcakes in NYC?

I prefer Buttercup Bakery's cupcakes. Magnolia's icings taste too much like powdered sugar icing mixed with food coloring while Buttercups adds butter so it makes it taste better and their Red Velvet cupcakes and banana pudding are the best!

Queens boy trying to re-experience childhood foods

It's really hard to find a good bagel or bialy in Queens...I'm actually trying to find a good bagel bakery in general. Personally I like Peppino's Pizza and I believe it's called Ariella in Forest Hills (next to Johnny Rocket's) made pretty good pizza. I know there are some delis along Queens Blvd in Rego Park and Forest Hills so they might have a good bagel.

What dessert is this?

I had this dessert when I was a child but the Italian bakery in my neighborhood closed down. Would anyone know what dessert this is and where to get a recipe for it or know where to buy such a dessert? Thanks!

Dairy Substitute

Thank you for the feedbacks! I didn't know there's lactaid drops! I def have to try that! I'm trying a baking project of desserts so I can try the drops on the food. I'll also try the tofu idea and see how it goes. =) Btw, I love the blog!

Dairy Substitute

I want to make some recipes (ie. spinach gratin, penne ala vodka, mac & cheese) that require items like heavy cream, mascapone cheese, ricotta, etc all dairy products that I can no longer digest since I am lactose-intolerance. Would anyone recommend substitutes for these recipes that require dairy items? Thanks!
