I'm currently staying at a hotel in Whippany and have to travel to Morris Plains and Livingston for the next couple days.

Really open for any kind of suggestions.. Still on the hunt for a Korean BBQ place though. We seemed to have passed tons of Asian, Fusion places along Rt. 10 but of course I have no idea which we should take a chance on.

We were thinking of trying out the Melting Pot (as my mom and I both never had fondue (gasp! i know i know).. but honestly, the whole dipping of food things for dinner isn't really our thing.

I'm from Ocean County and am a huge fan of Mexico Lindo's 3 for 5 lunch special.. so we're even willing to try a yummy mexican place around the area.

THANKS SO MUCH IN ADVANCE for ANY recommendations!!! :)

    You didn't name a price range, but the pizzas at Panevino on Rt. 10 in Livingston are a good value, if you want Italian.

      Definitely try Don Jose's.....one of the best Mexican places in NJ. If you ever get out to Denville, Hunan Taste is a great Chinese place as well.

      For a quick, cheap bite, try Jimmy Buff's in the Best Buy shopping center on Rt.10. Not sure if it's Livingston or E.Hanover right there though, it's right by the border...

        A few places on Route 10 in East Hanover to consider:
        Mexican - Don Jose
        Indian - Saffron Indian Cusine
        Malaysian - Penang
        Chinese - Mr. Chu or Bill & Harry's

          Minado Japanese Buffet - large, excellent selection of both cooked food and sushi. Offerings vary between lunch (including great baked bluefish) and dinner (sashimi and something they call salmon tataki with a great cilatro-based sauce)..
