OK, so I don't like to drive into NYC for my fresh duck and chicken every week. DJ Garden just opened so I figured, why not try it! Boy, was I glad I did! The Soy Sauce Chicken was a bit more expensive but worth it since I saved on gas, tolls and parking. They even had Pork w/ Pickled Cabbage Noodle Soup and Ox Tongue and Tripe w/ Chile Sauce. I'm going back for more of my fave's. Prices may seem high but they really aren't if you have to make it yourself.
I LOVE Miso Soup and this is the place for the BEST! The fish is always fresh and the service is always tops and friendly! Whether I order out or at the table the food is consistent and delicious! My faves are the Gyu Don (beef & onion over rice), Spicy Salmon Tar Tar, and the Ameibi (fried heads are included and yummy). Lunch specials are worth the trip! Prices are extremely reasonable and there's ample parking in the lot. BYOB.
Forget the traffic and parking in Chinatown! Thanks to Sam & his great staff we now have a fabulous Dim Sum restaurant to satisfy our cravings for real Cha Sei Bau, Shui Mai, Ha Gaw, and Lo Bok Go. Their Winter Melon Soup is as good as mom's and the Bake Pork Chop Hong Kong Style is delicious! Try the Hong Kong Chilean Sea Bass and you will thank me forever! Love the Pan Fried Beef Noodles and lunch specials are a must! BYOB. Park on the street or at the pay lot on the next block.
This gastronomically delightful Asian fusion restaurant has everything your palete desires! Start with the Honey Back Ribs or my son's fave, the Thai Crab Cakes. You can't go wrong with the vege Hot & Sour Soup or piled high Grilled Chicken Salad. All the sushi is fresh and delicious! Love the Samba Delight, Fire Wok and Mango Chicken!Lunch Specials are truly special and cost efficient! Park on the street or at the pay lot next door. Service is excellent. Watch TV while you eat on the big screen too! BYOB
I love all things Tandoori, Vindaloo or any meats swimming in Curry. Mela offers these fine dishes and of course the traditional paneer veges and my fave, Alu Gobhi (cauliflower & potatoes). 9 types of Fresh warm tandoori breads are also available as well as Chat Papri and Samosa. Try the tasty Garlic Shrimps! I always order the Masala Iced Tea. Mela offers great daily lunch specials under $10.00. Metered parking on the streets but there's also a pay parking lot around the corner. Atmosphere is pretty, festive and clean. Service has always been good. Prices are reasonable. BYOB.
If you LOVE Falafel and fresh home made Hummus then this is the place to go! Try the Spinach Pie and the Baba Ghanouj too! My fave is the vege Combo where the plate is piled high with five vegetarian ingredients: salad, falafel, fried eggplant, vege omelette & garlic potatoes. Pita bread comes with the meal. There's always beef tenderloin and lamb on the giant flame broiler awaiting to satisfy you. Atmosphere is clean and homey. Service is fast and friendly. Free delivery available and parking is no problem. Prices are boarder line cheap/reasonable. BYOB.
