I was at a tasting dinner at Cocina the other night, and I made me sorry that I had never gone there before.

We had the Lumpia Shanghai with ground pork, these are simple fried rice paper 'egg rolls' filled with ground pork, crispy, not greasy and nice. Mussels cooked in ginger sauce. Huge New Zealand greens in a light briny broth with ginger strips. Pancit Bihonm rice sticks with chicken, very tasty, not too spicy not too sweet. Vegetable Chop Suey Filipino style, a sort of sweet-sour combination of assorted vegetables in a light sauce. The Arroz con Mariscos with a nice combination of shrimp, clams, mussels, and tiny calamari in a fluffy yellow rice (strong seafood background). The pork Menudo (stew) was tasty, but the beef Mechado (stew) was killer with more spice and surprise of a whole baby gherkin mixed in. We also had a delicious roast chicken with garlic (which I don't see on the takeout menu) that we were told was 'Puerto Rican' style.

This is a very family restaurant, very very casual. The decor is none existent at this time, it looks a bit cafeteria style. They do a lot of takeout.

While we did not eat from the steam trays,some items are already made (like a lot of restaurants). The owners are very nice and I'm sure if you wanted you could have most everything made to order. Stews and roasts, obviously not due to the time. Most of what they are selling holds well in a steam tray, stew, rice. They have a number of dishes that are cooked to order. They do whole roast pig on advance request ($175.00?) for parties. Most dishes under $8 a few up to $15.

Pros: great value, very good food, owners very hospitible

Cons: decor, some food on visible steam trays which may be a turn off for some

Cocina De GeePee in Pompton is a great find. The restaurant is small but inviting. The food is fantastic and the owners are friendly. It is located in the town's strip mall.

This is the best restaurant that I ate at for about 9 years! Everyone (including their children) are really nice. This food is never under or over cooked. It is cooked the perfect amount! :)

The menu is somewhat limited but if you ask Angel to recommend some dishes, you will love it! The food selection is Puerto Rican and Filipino. They are extremely friendly and helpful. They also have entertainment periodically.

We discovered this family run restaurant recently and have been hooked ever since.The food is fantastic and the service makes you feel at home. The dishes are authentic and flavourful. There servings are generous and will satisfy most people.The owners take the time to talk with customers and help you make a meal decision if your unfamiliar with the choices.Cocina de GeePee is located in a strip mall, it is a relatively small restaurant with a pleasant atmosphere. Prices are reasonable and this a BYOB restaurant.
