Korea In Bergen County: Volume 1

In Fort Lee, Palisades Park, and Leonia there exists a very large and vibrant Korean American community, and with that comes a plethora of truly excellent, guaranteed authentic, and always interesting Korean restaurants.  Being obsessed with Korean cuisine I have endeavored to try as many as I can, and from now on you folks will get a taste of my explorations of Korea in Bergen County.

So Kong Dong Tofu - ( 130 Main St, Fort Lee, NJ‎201) 242-0026). Soondooboo Chigae is the star here, in fact, aside from some delicious thinly sliced ribs, called Kalbi, it is the only thing on the menu.  Soondooboo is very soft tofu curds, and with it is made the main event at this restaurant. It is ofered in 5 levels of spiciness (from not spicy to very spicy) with 7 different options mixing seafood and beef.  As today was fracking frigid, hovering at about 30 degrees,  this seemed like the perfect lunch.

Peru in Passaic Volume 1

Passaic is a diverse city in North Jersey. It is home to a sizable Peruvian community, and with that comes Peruvian food. This is just the first post as I eat my way through these fantastic, inexpensive restaurants in downtown Passaic.

Anticucheria el Chevere - (603 Main Avenue Passaic, NJ 07055-4921 - (973) 458-8308) This is an authentic Peruvian restaurant specializing in Antichuchos, basically beef heart skewers, but I will get to the organ meat in a bit. It's in downtown Passaic, not the most scenic of areas, but a friendly resturaunt.
