I'm So Inspired to Cook!

I am so inspired to cook lately especially that I have three days off for the past few weeks from my place of work. Take a look of the foods I made last week. I prepared some fried fish pompano, pork adobo and macaroons.

Restaurants in Central New Jersey

As many of you may already know, I really enjoy food, both making food of course and trying new restaurants whenever I am out of town on vacation. Although I have not been able to travel to many places, the few places that I have been to always have excellent restaurants that serve great and interesting dishes. Just recently I had found out about all of the great places to eat in New Jersey, and more specifically, Central New Jersey. At they have a list of the many restaurants in Central New Jersey, and I have to admit that I was really surprised at the many restaurants, and specifically, ethnic restaurants that New Jersey has to offer. Some of the rare types of restaurants that New Jersey has to offer include Malaysian, French, Indian, Lebanese, Mediterranean, and even Ethiopian restaurants! The Ethiopian restaurant is called Makeda Ethiopian Restaurant which is located in New Brunswick, New Jersey and is one of the few Ethiopian restaurants in the country and it is actually well acclaimed by people who have had the opportunity to try it out. I found out that they have many beef and lamb dishes that are reasonably priced and so far this would be one of the places in New Jersey that I would love to visit. Central New Jersey is also home to not one, but two Malaysian restaurants including Penang and Ming Far East Cuisine, both of which are located in Edison, New Jersey. I would love to try these restaurants because Malaysia is of course in Southeast Asia, and I would like to sample foods from that region since I am from the Philippines. So for those of you who would like to try some awesome cuisine, especially ethnic cuisine, the best place to go to would be Central New Jersey and I definitely plan to go there in the future.
