Table for One

The food corner…

I’m a foodie (who isn’t) I may not step out to restaurant as often as I wish I can afford but when I do, I make sure to stop at 1 of the many on my list of places to eat at in the tri-state.

I will be sharing details, pictures and experiences here.

Buen Provecho = Bon Appetite

Bodega Pizza

NY, NY

Pizza with a Latin Touch.

Very affordable, serving personal pies. Definitely can be shared.

I ordered the 4 cheese calzone and couldn’t finish it. So filling.

The decor is made to feel like you in a bodega… i love its so laid back and casual.

Nutella Calzone was delish!!! I couldn’t finish! Then again i was alone lol.

Will i return?! Most definitely to try a pie!

Meemom

Brick, NJ

http://meemoms.com

Before going to see Hustlers movie. We decided first stop brunch!

Meemoms was the place and apparently all my friends knew but me!

Started with a s’mores chocolate milk

Got a Cali wrap. So good i ate the whole thing!

We shared their item, carrot French toast, so delish!

Would i return?! Most definitely!! They had sooooo many opts to try that sounded soooo good!

Bodega Negra

NY, NY

Located between Tao and Philip Chow, connected to Dream Hotel, across from Chelsea Market and near the Highland park… Perfect location to explore.

Parking is across the street for 66$… You can find street parking with time and patience.

This dinner was special date night, celebrating my wonderful boyfriends birthday. I made reservations a few days before, if you are trying to go at a certain time I suggest booking weeks advance.

If you yelp it, you will probably com across my review. I loved my experience, from beginning to end. Are waiter was cool and attentive, even other tables waiters checked up on us (we were surprised at that service) manager also made sure we were pleased.

The decor is rustic modern barn… Super cute… i loved the penny disco ball in the center of it all. Josh was loving it all! Made me happy

First I will say, the menu on their website is just a portion of what’s on their restaurant menu.

Josh and I couldn’t figure out what to eat, so many good opt.

Before we even placed our drink order, our waiter treated us to a shot of patron… I’m not a heavy drinker but I took it, not to offend him lol

We did order a pitcher of sangria, the menu only list Red but they can make it white. (68$) and we didn’t even finish the whole thing. If you are drinkers I suggest the pitchers save yourself some coins.

We started with queso fundido (cheese fondant 15$) and tortillas… i think it had some meat in it, was so good I didn’t have time to figure it out.

Josh ordered the habanero steak tacos… We laughed so much with this one… Everyone was checking up on him to make sure if he really wanted to eat it, and if he needed milk lol he definitely paced himself between bites. They are small but deadly.

Presentation was very creative. Josh loved it.

i have the chicken and chorizo fajitas… This was fantastic!! Right amount of seasoning, peppers and cheese on a bed, with sour cream, tomatoes, guacamole, and chimichurri sauce for extra taste… I was obsessed with the chimi sauce. So delicious when you put it all together on a tortilla.

And their infamous dessert… Don Juevon (16$)… This is what originally captured my attention when they first opened and been on my list of restaurants ever since.

The cake stood warm… It was perfect ending.

Total was 169$ (tip not included)

We will be returning, maybe on a Monday which is their famous night. But definitely for happy hour, that bar menu looks delicious.

Vida Verde

NY, NY

The BFF put me on to this place and honestly can’t wait to go back!

The decor was super cute!!

Is a 21 and over restaurant with rooftop.

We started with of course… Guacamole!! Freshly made in front of you.

i had a blue berry coconut Margarita.. Very refreshing and strong.. But I’m not a margarita drinker.

Brenda had shrimp quesadilla.. They were very stuffed.

And I had friend fish tacos… i wanted to try something different than my safety chicken lol and I’m glad I did.

Once we paid our 100$ tab (tax and tip included) we headed to the roof.

They also have a second level bar.

We went for the frozen Margarita

2 for 37$ with tip included.

The vibe is cute, people are casual, the music was good.

Summer time location for sure!

The Melt Shop

Menlo Mall / also located in NY

My first time having it, and definitely won’t be my last. Now that it’s around the corner from home, I will be going once a month so I don’t OD.

Cafe Paris

Metuchen NJ

A little over price if you ask me, but then again can’t expect cheap with a name Paris.

The place is cute not big but also not tiny. We went for easter and the wait was not long.

MidNight Food Market

Jersey City

This is soooo creative. An adult only market party…

entrance start at 5$, they host made sure each vendor had at least 1 5$ dish.

Got to meet 1 of the 2 event creators..

There was also swings, photo booths, henna tattoo, and games.

The DJ was amazing.

Food was delicious!.

Fried Ice cream to end my night!

I spent less than 40$ and it also included 2 beers.

Next event May 10th 90s party.

Le Peep

Edison NJ

Is only open for breakfast and brunch.

The wait isn’t long but it is very busy, so have patience for the waiters.

I’ve only gone twice and have enjoyed it each time. A must try, in the area.

SEA the Thai Experience in Brooklyn NY

Super cute and trendy. I went for a birthday, The menu was pre fix with options to include drinks or not.

The food was delish. The desserts weren’t so much.

Drinks were strong (some liked it others not so much because it was Sunday)

The bench seating did have my butt hurting, the music was good. The waiters were quick. I’ll definitely be returning when the weather is nice.

Jolie Cantina Brooklyn NY

Cute and small corner spot…

My sister were in NY for a pop up, got hungry and went into the first place we came across and were not disappointed!

Yummy complementary churros.

Drinks were perfectly made, not strong or weak.

I have the chicken quesadilla, every bite was delicious!!

My sister had a breakfast dish which i honestly can’t remember the same but let’s just say nothing was left behind

After an hour wait (well worth it) my best friend and I made it to

Just Be Claws in Jersey City…

We aren’t always in the area so we made sure to take advantage this time.

Started with so crab cheese fries and if you know me you know cheese fries are my weakness!!! And adding crabs is just a plus!

So delicious now I’m craving.

You chose your between crab options and lobsters, and two sides, and seasonings.

I went for their signature.

And i tell my self all the time not to get lobster for the lack of meat but i can’t help it.

It was very messy but fun!

Would i go again? Maybe but maybe I’ll just order to pick up.

Another restaurant on my list…

La Flaca.

I came across this place while searching for a burlesque show.

But no show just food this time around.

Garlic shrimp delicious!

Drinks were very good!

I had the chicken flautas, crunchy and flavorful.

Brenda has steak and she didn’t complain.

If I’m in the neighborhood I’ll return for sure.

I plan to continue to scratch off restaurant from my list. If you have suggestions please share!

Xoxo
