Edison food jaunt? Need ideas please

My daughter and I are planning a food jaunt through Edison. We have stops planned at Mithaas -- for sweets and Mings for Manchurian califlower. Kings Village is also on the list for dumplings. Where else would you go and what would you get there?

      Food court in H-Mart has a Korean fried chicken joint which is really good (but the fries are totally generic).

      I always recommend Wonder Seafood on Route 27, for outstanding Hong Kong/Cantonese, particularly fish and shellfish preps. They have dim sum every day during the day, weekends are extremely popular with a good variety available. Quality is excellent.

    2. The Asian Food Market in Piscataway is only about a 15 minute drive from Edison. An excellent selection of fruit and produce and a tremendous selection of Chinese ingredients.

      HMart is right on Route 27. They also have a large selection of meats, fish, and produce plus a couple of food courts. Haven't tried the food courts, but have read good things about them.

      1. GRRRR...not loving mobile CH so much--I posted and it's not showing.
        Google Floyd Cardoz Edison to find the article someone did in the last year --they hit all of his favorites and you can DEF trust those recs!

          Here's the video:

          He visits the very well-hidden Karaikudi and Swagath Gourmet,both worthwhile stops on the jaunt.

          My only question is how they can take so many shots of Oak Tree Road without me in them. I feel like I'm always there.

        2. I listed a bunch of places in this post:

          Also the Lamb BBQ place is a fun place to stop by.
