Does anyone have any good spots?
Rodeio grill is my spot for a skirt steak fix. Smokey, salty and flavorful... I can't get enough of that stuff.
I am looking for some other options to change up my steak intake. I do like the one at Havana in Highlands too, but can you guys recommend some others?
I hear the puerto rican place in matawan has a decent one. I have had one at Ada's recently and that was Ok....not the best but the price was cheap.
I personally love skirt, flank, and/or hangar steaks. I think when prepared right they blow other cuts, like filet mignon, away.
The problem is that restaurants are figuring this out and starting to charge up for these "cheaper" cuts. I don't mind paying for quality farms, but there is a sticker shock for some.
With this disclaimer out of the way, I recently had a nicely prepared hangar steak at Belford bistro. Just the right texture, cooked medium rare, and simply prepared.
I also noticed a skirt steak on the lunch menu of Due Mari in New Brunswick. Has anyone tried this dish yet? I just saw a no reservations episode where Michael White travelled around Italy with Anthony bourdain. He takes his cuisine very seriously and exuded passion about food. Hope his restaurants are the same, but you never know with food empires.
There was also a hangar steak on the menu at drew's bayshore bistro last time I went. I usually go for seafood dishes when there, but promised myself to try the steak next visit. Any feedback on his steak?
On a side note, I've found some of the best prepared skirt steaks in random hole in the wall Mexican restaurants. I'm relatively new to the area, but sure there are several spots in the area that do this well.
Its too expensive for what it is, but A Little Bit of Cuba in Freehold serves up a very tasty skirt steak with chimichurri.
