3 days until St. Patrick’s Day… Another Irish Breakfast, this time from the Shannon Rose in Clifton. Pretty much the same as the one featured yesterday, only they gave Irish Soda Bread instead of the usual toast.
I wish I could say I “made” this chicken makhni, but what I really did was doctor up a couple jars of store-bought Indian simmer sauce and added cream, cilantro, peas, and pulled/shredded rotisserie chicken. It was delicious. Served with naan, basmati rice, grilled onion, and lime.
The next time I go to the Indian market (Patel Brothers in Parlin), I’ll need to hire a tour guide. So much to choose from!
Thinking back to this Chicken Parm with vodka sauce masterpiece from Esposito’s in Matawan from last year.
From a strange spell last month where we went from sub-zero temperatures to sunny and 65 in a matter of a day. It was strange walking on the beach in shorts and a t-shirt while stepping around giant chunks of ice stretched out for miles on the bay-side of Sandy Hook.
This will knock your freakin’ avocado toast into another universe.
Barnacle Bill’s is known for their Long Island Iced Teas, but they also make an excellent martini.
Justin’s sinful homemade chocolate lava cake. It was restaurant-quality, and I could feel any weight I lost in January shooting right back on…
The food at China Palace was delicious, but in case you forgot you were eating in a bowling alley, drinks came in these sick retro cups. Brings me back! “Limited Edition 1991 Design”. The year I was born.
A rare vegan dish for me: spicy lentil soup with garlic, tomato, and coriander, with a drizzle of chili oil on top for some added spice.
