The house chips and salsa are the best! They were surprising good, I just wish they threw the chips in the oven so it came out warm. The salsa was nice and flavorful, but not spicy.
I ordered the cochinita pibil, which is a pork dish with a whole bunch of other stuff thrown in: Mexican rice, black beans, pickled onions, and a baked banana. The pork was tender, but not that flavorful, most of the flavor came from the fatty pieces. Everything else was pretty good, although I think a plantain would've been better than a banana.
Definitely would go back to try something else, or atleast to see if i can get the salsa bottled to go.
We missed out on the chinese menu ... but just about everything we ordered was delicious.
The Chulicious sandwiches are a dressed up version of a traditional taiwanese breakfast. It's a sesame scallion pancake style bun with cilantro, beef, and some other greens. I feel like it needed some additional sauce because it was a little bit dry otherwise.
The crystal wonton's were good. They had a soft skin with great flavor. The sauce had a slight sweet and spicy kick to it. I really enjoyed them.
The Green Pea shoots or something veggies were ordered with the suggestion of the waitress. These were probably my favorite. They were cooked perfectly so they were tender and crunchy with an excellent flavor.
The whole fish hunan style, I wish I ordered traditional taiwanese style, was a red snapper. I had scanned yelp for suggestions and this was up there. It was a whole breaded and fried fish with a nice thick sauce with some sort of black bean base. This was cooked perfectly where the skin was crispy but the underlying meat wasn't dry at all.
After speaking with Sheri, the owner, I learned that there was a green chinese menu with the more traditional dishes. I will have to make another trip back and try out those dishes.
The Lobster Eggs Benedict is well worth the wait!
We waited outside in the cold for 10 minutes before we realized that we could wait inside and be underfoot for 20 in that little gift shop.
After we were seated in the porch area, with an almost useless heat lamp kind of near us, the 5 of us ordered maple latte's and an OJ (I got the OJ). 3 of the latte's were with milk and the last with almond milk. I tasted both varieties and I did not really taste any maple. I would just skip it unless you want a normal latte with a fancy name. I was immensely happy with my decision to go with the Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice.
For my meal, I ordered the lobster eggs benedict and it was delicious, amazing, specta-magical. I would definitely eat it every day if I wanted a delicious cholesterol and diabetes death. The meat are fat pieces of lobster claw with a perfectly poached egg on top of it, with an english muffin below it all. The egg porn that occurs when you cut into the egg....eggrotica! The flavors were marvelous and rich, perfect for the price point.
It came with a side of potatoes and I added the sausage as a side. The potatoes were nothing to write home to mom about and the sausage wasn't super, but it was better than the bacon, which was just normal bacon.
Oh, the hot sauce! That was delicious and available for you to buy at the gift shop. I thoroughly enjoyed the flavor and it went heavenly with the potatoes, eggs, everything.
Brand new deli with made to order food, coffee, and craft beer open early and closes late.
I live near by and the new deli is at the gutted and re done location of the old deli. It seems to be under an unrelated new ownership and they have done wonders with the space.
I'm not really a drinker but they have beer on tap as well as a selection of craft beers in the fridge. Coffee is also available and a good amount of breakfast and lunch sandwich options. I had a brie and egg on brioche with ham and it was good.
There is also a small grocer area with drinks, home supplies, and fancy foods (eggs, yogurt, hagen daaz ice cream, etc) that you may need. The price is a bit higher but you are paying for the convenience.
All in all, when I ordered the sandwich the service was good and everyone was friendly when stopped by, all though they misspelled my name as Denise on the order. Sigh sigh.
A cheese cake factory with less food and more locally brewed beers.
The food selection was like a smaller more refined version of cheesecake factory. I say this because it's New American which is basically american food with some asian fusion, but everything is fried and greasy. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying I went here for 5 star cuisine, but it was exactly what I expected.
They would probably get an extra star for their beer, brewed on site, if i drank. Unfortunately, my rating/review is based solely on the food.
For an appetizer, my friend and I shared the calamari which was surprisingly good. The dipping sauce was a creamy style sauce as opposed to the generic marinara, and it was good! There just wasn't that much calamari and they mixed in battered and fried peppers and other fillers. Give me calamari or give me death!
My dinner was a burger, I believe the Kennet Square version is what I went with. This came with a heavy garlic aoili or something on the side and a butt ton of mushrooms. The burger itself wasn't that bad, the bread was buttery and greasy, but nothing really stood out. The sauce wasn't too bad, but it felt so heavy that I only put on a light smattering for taste.
It's a good place to drink and socialize if you just want greasy American food and sometimes that's exactly what you want. For me, it was just too heavy.
A good stop for a drink and some burgers or mussels. I live in the neighborhood and it's my go to spot for a premium burger for about $9 (no fries).
Personally, I'm a fan of the Merckx (sp?) burger. This comes with brie cheese and pickled jalapenos for a nice sour kick to the taste buds. The burger isn't the biggest thing in the world, but it's a fat thick patty cooked to your requested tenderness. The bun is a nice brioche looking style bun, or at the very least it's not some crappy store bought bun.
I've also recently had the lamb burger on the pita. The meat and whatever spread on it was amazing. It comes with mixed salad greens and some sort of dressing between two slices of pita, except IT'S NOT A POCKET. This makes it extremely difficult to eat because the pita is large, but the burger is half the size but thick. As a result, the greens keep falling out and it's just impossible to eat unless you go about it with a knife and fork. Do you know how depressing it is to eat a burger with a knife and fork? I'm not one of haut monde so I did not enjoy that at all.
I'm not a huge fan of the fries, but that's mostly because I do not like thin fries at all. It's way too much work for a minimal reward, give me the wedges! The dipping mayo sauce that comes with the fries has a great flavor but fries are either $2 for a small basket with a burger or $4-5 for a larger basket on the appetizer menu. You can also pay extra for other types of dipping sauces.
Personally, I'm not a drinker so I can't comment on the beer selection, but I believe this place has a wide array of selections because the drink menu is quite extensive. My eating companions are always happy to stop there and find something that tickles their fancies.
I'm also not much of a seafood eater, so I can't comment on the mussels, but I've had friends swear by them. So if you like eating mussels, go for it.
This is definitely NOT the same hot pot as the Mongolian hot pot chain in NJ and NYC! Not even close and I didn't even like the one in Edison so I'm not even sure why they're trying to trick people into thinking it is.
I made reservations with a friend from NYC who had been to the NYC one and was excited to try it out. We were seated promptly, but the waiter was some what unfriendly and slow with our orders and we just sat there admiring the nice decor. Maybe it's grand opening jitters and they'll get better with time, but it's something they definitely need to work on.
We each got a different flavor of hot pot and neither were really that flavorful. They looked great, but in the end it seemed like they were expecting the sauces to do all the heavy lifting. The meat came in larger quantities than expected, but I'm not too sure about the quality. My stomach was a little iffy afterwards, but no full blown diarrhea so that seemed fine.
We were told it's a temporary BYOB when we called because they are working towards getting their liquor license. I prefer bringing my own drinks and not pooping water, so I think until I hear otherwise I will stick with the hot pot place on Cherry Street.
I'm a fan. I used to dream of this when my friends would post pictures of the drinks from MD/VA area. These are as amazing as I imagined, but my only gripe with some of the specials is that the liquid/juice is room temperature while the ice on top is cold. It gives a slightly unpleasant contrast and I wish the liquid were very cold too.
I am normally at Pho Ha for pho, so trying this restaurant with a huge menu motivated me to stray a bit from the pho path and try something new.
I went with the pork skin spring rolls for an appetizer and Banh Cuon off the daily special's menu for a main course.
First the spring rolls, they were okay... Basil, lettuce, vermicelli, and the shredded pork skin you get on the rice dishes. Needless to say, it was exactly what I expected. I don't really know why I was hoping for something particularly special, but it was dry and sticky, but of course made much better with the if sauce. It wasn't exactly bad, it just wasn't anything special.
The Banh Cuon on the other hand, that was a total crap shoot in the dark that ended up being amazing. The description is entirely useless, it was described as something like Rice flakes with pork and beef. It's actually some sort of ham or pate type of meat on a thick rice noodle paper, very similar to the rice paper skin for shrimp or beef at dim sum.. those long rice thingies. Anyway, there was some sort of deep fried bread with meat in it and a fried shrimp on it. I wasn't sure what it was exactly. I guess if I had to describe it, I would say it was like beef/pork bread deep fried and excellent with some fish sauce.
This is definitely a new favorite dish.
