My recommended places in Hunterdon County, NJ

  • 7

I'm moving to Maryland tomorrow and would like to leave my recommendations for my home for the last eight years, Hunterdon County, NJ. I would consider all of these MUST eats if I was in town again.
1. Annandale Deli at 55 Beaver Ave., Annandale, NJ has an amazing, meaty Taylor Pork Roll, Egg, and Cheese for $3.75. Make sure you request salt and pepper.
2. Galasso's Pizza at 48 Bridge Street, Frenchtown, NJ has an amazing, tomatoey, square-shaped Brooklyn slice.
3. Aikou Sushi located at 63 Reaville Ave, Flemington, NJ has an amazing, saucy "monster roll" and "blackened tuna" roll. $12 each.
4. The "Bowzer" sandwich ($9.75 for a full as in 2 people can eat and be full) at Ye Olde Sub Base located at 29 Main St, Clinton, NJ is fantastic! Turkey, store-roasted roast beef, with Russian dressing is a definite winner.

Hope you enjoy.

        We've had the fish 'n' chips at Blue Fish Grill. Astoundingly delicious! And the clam chowder wasn't too shabby either.

        We've had dinner at Matt's Red Rooster Grill, albeit some time ago, and enjoyed the food there.

          RGR, as you know from other threads, I think Matt's has slipped over the years and is no longer the restaurant it was in the first two years of operation. I don't know the reason for this though I really noticed the difference when one of the Matts departed.

          It's still a reasonably good restaurant though the name no longer pops into my mind when I'm wondering where to go for dinner. I think the recent review in NJ Monthly, where it received two stars, is reasonably accurate (though I don't agree with the comments about the steaks, which in my opinion are only slightly better than average).

          IMO, the problem with Chelseas is rather simple. The new owners kept the ambience and menu lock-stock-and-barrel. Everything was the former owner's signature stuff. A talented, experienced chef was cooking another person's stuff. I think he should have personalized the menu more.

        2. I would love to know how to order this tomatoey, square-shaped Brooklyn slice at Galasso's because I live down the street from Galasso's and The Brooklyn Pie at Piccolo Trattoria in Pennington, NJ and Newtown, PA is my favorite.
