Jersey Fried

restaurant - travel

Made it to Jersey!

IMG_6010

First stop – even before we reached my Mom’s – food!

IMG_6003

Skipped the usual dumplings at Petite Soo Chow and went for Beef Noodle Bowls…

IMG_5998

…with two sides of fish – one smoked…

IMG_5982

…and one fried.

We spotted a lot more deep fried eats at The San Rocco Feast nearby, but didn’t eat any.

I’ve a feeling we’ll be taking my nieces/nephews again today – any other suggestions of things to do in the Bergen County/NYC area this weekend?

Blue C Sushi

dessert - dinner - restaurant - vegetarian

I’m at The Arclight several times a month – and have been thrilled to watch the culinary scene expand over the years. All my favorites are within walking distance – Veggie Grill, Stella Barra, Umami Burger, Shophouse – and now Blue C Sushi!

We sat inside by the conveyer belt

…which gave us a lovely view of The Dome

DSCN2840

…and a perfect place to get grabby (Abe lost a piece there).

Everything on the sushi train is priced according to plate colors…

DSCN2850

…and clearly labeled raw/cooked/vegan/gluten-free/etc.

You can also customize some house specials (like the Tuna BLT, above). I ordered the “Loaded Baked Potato” sans caviar/bacon/bonito so Abe could share it…

…along with some seafood for myself – an incredible seared white fish in hot oil, with ginger, garlic, and citrus soy.

The rest, we helped ourselves to, and it was ALL vegetarian!

Crispy tofu roll (above) and Seaweed Salad…

DSCN2823

…Tamago…

DSCN2831

…Vegetable Tempura with green bean, yam, zucchini, onion…

DSCN2837

…cucumber…

DSCN2838

…Sesame Noodles with Daikon…

DSCN2848

…Spinach Gomae…

DSCN2860

…V-8 Roll – with Gobo Root, Pico de Gallo, and Chili Sauce…

DSCN2862

…Edamame Puree (sorta like my Edamammus!)…

DSCN2881

…and Tofu with Chili Sauce.

DSCN2885

Everything was really tasty (Abe was seriously in veggie heaven) but I was astounded at how good dessert (also self-serve) wound up being.

DSCN2841

Super fresh fruit + a gluten-free chocolate chip cookie…

DSCN2873

…plus the softest, moistest (<—apologies to those who hate the word) Vanilla Cupcake.

Thanks so much to the Blue C Sushi team for treating us to a feast! We’ll definitely be back for many movie/dinner date nights.

Noodling Around

gluten free - trader joe's

All I have to say is: TGIFF. The extra “F” is for this:

IMG_3116.JPG

But on the same day Abe broke his pinky finger (jumping into a pool – yes, a swimming pool) we got a new fridge! For 8 years we’ve had one without shelves on the door; so much extra space now that we can easily access our condiments…

IMG_3113

…I immediately went to Trader Joe’s to stock up.

The Fresh Rice Noodles are easy to make, but immediately began clumping after boiling – anyone have a tip for that?

DSCN1608

Did NOT like it mixed with their Peanut Satay. Not sure if it was the sauce – I definitely liked them with french fries – but with the noodles, the combo was meh.

Our Disneyland shoot is postponed until after Abe’s cast is removed – but in the meantime, check out who’s in his latest BuzzFeed video (at 36 seconds in)
