A sweet treat can always make any day better. Well this location is a great spot for anyone looking for happiness. Lots of choices to enjoy with a really nice atmosphere and cool vibe. This business was a joy to visit. I liked the marble cupcake as it was moist, flavorful, and the icing was delicious. Will certainly give some of their other baked goods a chance next time around the area. They have ice cream too! You should give them a try for yourself.

This place is a little bit of everything for everyone. They are a mixture of Caribbean, BBQ, Spanish, and Southern styles. For their location, they are certainly unique and a welcome addition to the culinary scene. The food was better than average, but the highlight was the service was top notch and the retail area of the restaurant is really cool with some interesting foodie items available for purchase. I had the rib platter with mac and cheese and fries, and the jerk chicken platter with Spanish rice and sweet fried plantains. I will be interested to see how they evolve and grow. If you’re around the area they are a good choice to try something different than the ordinary or normal around there.

Polizzi’s Brick Oven – Sewell, 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.

A few years ago it would have been a struggle to think of anywhere serving Detroit style pizza. Now it seems they are popping up left and right. Even with many options of places being available now, not all are equal. Let me tell you that Polizzi’s Brick Oven has a really nice pie called the ‘313’ and the zucchini sticks are delicious as well. For the pizza, the dough is fluffy exactly what you are looking for and the cheese is crispy on the side just like it should be. If you’re a fan of this style or just looking for something a little different and good you should give them a try.

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.

The service was great with the hostess/server being from Jamaica. Pictured is Beef Patty, Jerk Chicken platter, and Oxtail platter. Food was yummy.

Really enjoyed my meal here. From the service, ambiance, and food I will certainly be back. I enjoyed fried calamari and Mel’s Chicken Cutlet sandwich which is cornmeal encrusted chicken topped with spinach, marinated long hots, and melted provolone cheese on a Sarcones roll.

Jalapenos Grill – Haddon Township, NJ

Jalapenos Grill – Haddon Township, NJ

I must admit that Mexican cuisine is not one of my strengths at ordering or eating something I like, so sadly I usually skip this type of food. It is odd because the seven or so odd times I have visited Mexico I have enjoyed my meals quite a bit there, but struggle finding the same at home. After enjoying a family show at The Ritz Theatre Company situated right next door to Jalapenos Grill (JG) I decided to give JG a try. The staff was extremely welcoming and warm the second we stepped foot inside JG. Language was a slight barrier, but was able to manage. Things started off with a complimentary basket of chips with dip.

20150509_164251

JG was off to a very good start, as I enjoyed the dip and the chips were nice as well. Taking baby steps, I decided to try their pork carnitas taco, plain and on a hard shell.

20150509_165027

Again JG shined with pork that was seasoned beautifully, moist, a generous serving, and very affordable. Feeling a bit more adventurous, my next order would be Pollo borracho drunk chicken served with rice and chipotle fries. (sorry for the blurry picture, the camera was not cooperating)

20150509_170011

Let me start by saying the chipotle fries at first glance just seemed like run of the mill potatoes, but they were fabulous. They were cooked nice and crisp and seasoned to perfection. I always enjoy being surprised while dining. The rice was nice, but could have used a little more of a serving of it and a few more veggies possibly. The chicken sauce was very powerful. It was a mix of sweet and sour flavors with a punch of tequila in every bite. It was good, but overpowered the chicken completely. Also, the chicken was a bit on the dry side. The dish overall was good, just not grand. I enjoyed my time at JG and I will certainly be back to try more things on their menu.

Three and Half out of Five Stars

 

The Red Hen – Swedesboro, NJ

The Red Hen – Swedesboro, NJ

Once you travel outside the cities of Philadelphia, Collingswood, and Haddonfield, which I call the Triangle of Tasty, the list of notable dining destinations seems to dwindle quite considerably. I decided to take a trip to the historic town of Swedesboro, New Jersey for some fun at the beautiful Swedesboro Lake Park also known as Lake Narraticon Park and a bit of shopping along the main street.  After an afternoon of fun, the need to eat hit. I saw The Red Hen (TRH) and remember hearing of a new spot called Travo 13 when Terence Feury was cooking there, but TRH looked much more appealing with my two year old son in tow and advertised as a family friendly establishment, so I decided to give them a try. Family friendly TRH is indeed. Besides the bar area, eighty percent of the diners present had a family in tow, games and toys for purchase as soon as you step inside and kids eat free Monday thru Thursday. The décor is modern, hip and fun with the right mix of music playing. Service was friendly and efficient. The menu is a bit eclectic and they have a very nice craft beer selection. I would start things out with French Onion Soup.

The French Onion Soup was your standard variety and better than average, with a nice amount of cheese and bread throughout the bowl, but the onions could have been caramelized a little more. Next up would be calamari.

20150716_165733

TRH would serve one of the better calamari dishes I have had in a long time. The calamari was so fresh, moist and cooked perfectly. Every bite was heavenly and was seasoned with Parmesan, pickled hot pepper, and lemon aioli. This dish alone paired with the Shock Top Banana Spiced Wheat beer I was drinking, I could leave TRH happy, but I pushed through for an entrée of grilled shrimp.

20150716_165729

The dish consisted of shrimp marinated in a light teriyaki, lime and chili sauce accompanied with fresh summer vegetables. The dish had a great concept and flavor profile, but was executed terribly. The taste of sauce and rub on the shrimp was fabulous, but sadly the shrimp were so overcooked I could have used them as bouncy balls. The veggies were overcooked as well. The broccoli had no snap, while the squash and peppers were mush. Also, besides the top layer of broccoli, squash and peppers the rest of the pile was onions, onions, and more onions not cooked well. I can see where they were going with this dish and respected the combination except for the amount of onions, but was very disappointed after eating the perfectly prepared calamari.

20150716_171116

TRH had a bump in the road with my main entrée, but I was so pleased with every other aspect of service, ambiance, menu, drinks, and meal, I will happily return. Hopefully next time they will just be a little more careful to pay attention to what they are serving for each course. Two out of three ain’t bad, but the with the shrimp dish it made them go from OMG to SMH IDK.

Overall

Three out of Five Stars
