  1. How about Costa Verde in South Amboy/Sayreville? I don't know what town it is in but it's on Rte 35 South once you get off the Driscoll Bridge.

      Costa Verde is in Sayreville and always one of my first stops at home and I feel the best of the Portuguese restaurants in Middlesex County. A long history w/ my dad and uncle. You know your food!

    2. i love Karini 2 in Perth Amboy. Very casual Puerto Rican food, theyare at 299 New Brunswick Ave. I have also heard alot about a Domenican restaurant called Monumento on Smith St. While I have yet to try Monumento, it's on my list.

        Has anyone tried Monumento yet? Can someone tell me where on Smith St. it is located? Thanks

          I have never been to Monumento.
          But, I was not too impressed with Costa Verde at all. My favorite is Seabra's Armory (200 Front St. Perth Amboy) by the water. I heard mixed feedback on this place, but every time my husband and I went there, it was a pleasant experience. so... it could means just very inconsistant services.
