Manila Cafe & Asian Mart – Mt Laurel Township, NJ

#SmallBitesRadio has been named #14 Top Hospitality Shows on the Planet for 2020, 2021, and 2022, #Bluejeanfood.com being named #18 Top Philadelphia Lifestyle Blogs, Websites & Influencers of 2021 and 2022, and being nominated as #MetroPhilly Newspaper 2022 Best of Philly Arts & Entertainment.

What a joy this place was to visit. The mart alone is a good choice to just find some cool items to take home that you may not normally see. Best part of the visit though is the food. Really delicious and insanely affordable for the quality of food and portion size. Had their fried rice, chicken adobo, beef stew, and chicken skewer. Each items was great and if and when I’m in the area I will certainly be back. If you haven’t been yourself be sure to check them out.

Boaggio’s Bread – Mt Laurel, NJ

You always hear people say the secret to success is in the bread. Well bread is the #1 priority here and it’s great. They not only offer amazing bread related products, but they have an entire market full of Italian specialties, treats, desserts, pastas, meals to go, pizza, and sandwiches. I had their chicken cutlet with sharp provolone, and broccoli rabe and half sheet of pizza. Everything was delicious and they are definitely somewhere you should put on your radar to try for yourself. They have a little something for everyone and from my experience you can’t really go wrong with anything there.

Burgertime NJ – Audubon, NJ

Burgers, hot dogs, and tater tots is the name of the game here. Head by Chef Dane DeMarco they have updated the old school Americana luncheonette with some fancy twists. Service was really friendly and most importantly the food was excellent. Had a cheeseburger, Coney Island Chili Dog, and an order of tots. The chili dog was wonderful and I highly recommend it, tots were crispy, and burger was a quality item with its bun toasted on the grill. Great addition to a tiny little town’s food scene that has a decent variety and something for everyone in a small area.

Eagle Beach – Aruba

Eagle Beach – Aruba

#SmallBitesRadio has been named #14 Top Hospitality Shows on the Planet for 2020, 2021, and 2022 as well as #Bluejeanfood.com being named #18 Top Philadelphia Lifestyle Blogs, Websites & Influencers of 2021 and 2022.

The Eagle Beach area of Aruba has constantly been named one of the 10 top beaches in the world. There is a good reason why. It is just flat out gorgeous and has to be seen in person to be truly appreciated. The white sand just massages your feet while you walk on it and the warm turquoise clear and calm water is like none other.

An important question to ask when going there is where should you eat? Well below are a few meals that I enjoyed during my time in and around the area.

Así Es Mi Peru – Aruba

The vibe here is chill and the food is wonderful. You should give them a visit for sure when on the island. One of the best meals while I was there. I enjoyed their Trilogia de Causa, Mixto Ceviche, and Carapulca Chinchana.

Daily Fish – Aruba

This place is tiny, yet powerful. Lots of fresh fish caught locally with a decent menu of things you can get directly cooked by them. I had their version of Fish and Chips and it was delightful and you should try too. Perfect location if you need seafood to take to cook yourself or have them do it for you.

Red Fish – Aruba

The service here was one of the most enjoyable on the island. Our server joked with us the entire time and made my son feel like a million dollars treating him like royalty. The best part was the food was fantastic as well. I had their fish soup, calamari, and red snapper platter.

Las Ramblas – Aruba

Dining here provides the perfect opportunity to enjoy a beautiful sunset while enjoying your meal. If you’re lucky you just might be treated to a nice live acoustical music set during your visit like I was. The service is top notch and meal was really nice as well. I enjoyed grilled calamari, Lobster Bisque, Escargots à la Bourguignonne, Jumbo Caribbean shrimp in a curry sauce with sauteed veggies and rice, and carrot cake.

Aruba Ostrich Farm – Aruba

Now this place is just flat out fun! Very educational tour on Ostrich’s, but surprisingly they offer an entire menu of varied and interesting things to eat here during an UTV Tour from El Tours. You have to give advance notice if you wanted to try something ostrich related, but they were able to quickly cook up a fabulous beef empanada that you really should get and a croquette for a nice snack.

Passions On The Beach – Aruba

You can’t get any closer to the water unless you get in it. This place is a haven to relax beachfront and have a good meal. Enjoyed their Ginger Pumpkin Soup and Angus Beef Cheeseburger with fries.

Gelateria Italiana – Aruba

Tucked hidden inside a resort complex is this gem to cool off from the hot sun. Laura Iannizzi’s dessert haven is the perfect place to relax and re-energize yourself with a treat of yummy gelato or any other delight from their large selection of pastries, pies, and cakes. I really enjoyed their pistachio flavor.

Sbarro Pizza at La Cabana – Aruba

What tops relaxing at the ocean? Relaxing at the ocean while getting a pizza delivered right to you on the beach. Sbarro Pizza at La Cabana has an attendant comb Eagle Beach taking orders and bringing your food right to you. It was delightful and the server was working hard and as pleasant as could be.

Panda Express – Airport – Aruba

This little outpost of Panda Express had nice fresh food and at a good price point especially for being in an airport.

Uncle Tony’s at Eagle Aruba Resort and Casino – Aruba

Last, but certainly not least is this destination. Uncle Tony’s offers breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Below are their breakfast and lunch offerings which were generous in portion size and delicious. The restaurant is situated in the heart of Eagle Aruba Resort and Casino which is a beautiful property with every amenity you can want or think of. We stayed in their 3 Bedroom Penthouse which was luxurious, modern, clean, and spacious. I highly recommend a stay here! More info here:

A good pizza joint cheesesteak at a decent price point. They were generous with the meat and cheese and onions were cooked nicely. A solid choice if in the area.

Dar’s Steaks – Haddon Township, NJ

#SmallBitesRadio has been named the #14 Top Hospitality Programs on the Planet in 2020 and 2021 and #Bluejeanfood.com has been named #23 Top Philadelphia Lifestyle Blogs, Websites & Influencers of 2021

If you are around the Haddon Township area and want an elevated cheesesteak experience Dar’s Steaks is a good choice. They are better than your average pizza place’s regular cheesesteak. The old bay fries with their house-made wiz were really good and the house-made wiz was a good addition to the cheesesteak as well.

The Hub Asian Food Hall – Catonsville, MD

The Hub Asian Food Hall – Catonsville, MD

#SmallBitesRadio has been named #14 Top Hospitality Shows on the Planet for 2020, 2021, and 2022 as well as #Bluejeanfood.com being named #18 Top Philadelphia Lifestyle Blogs, Websites & Influencers of 2021 and 2022.

I have a feeling this is the future of dining. Founded in 2020, The Hub aims to unify modern takes on traditional Asian cuisine with a community-centric food hall. You order at one location, and even though their are about 10 vendors to choose from you can order something from every one of the vendors at a centrally located kiosk and have it all prepared and ready at the same time from a single window. It’s like a walk-in ghost kitchen. The place was booming with people dining in and they were doing an amazing food delivery business of big orders being picked up by 3rd party companies to go. I got a little mix of everything at the hall. The prices were very affordable and portion sizes were huge. Great concept here and know it is going to spread to other areas as proven with the South Jersey opening of FoodieHall in Cherry Hill.

Great meal here. I had the jerk chicken with rice and peas and cabbage. The service was above and beyond friendly, food was delicious, and serving size was overflowing. You could tell the chicken was smoked with a nice smoke ring in every bite, rice was fresh, and veggies were crisp and high quality. Without a doubt one of the better Jamaican / Caribbean dining destinations in South Jersey and if you haven’t tried them you should.

This is an old school rest stop with all the crazy tourist things you can think of and some more you couldn’t ever imagine for better or worse. The food here was quick, cheap, and somewhat enjoyable. Had cheeseburgers, hot dog, and fries.
