Regina’s Grocery

First, check out my short Ride & Review video HERE:

My wife and I finally got in here for a sandwich.

The place has been around for a long time, and I have to say, there’s a reason for it. The sandwiches are GREAT! This was a little expensive at $17, but when you compare to a place like Joey Roses ($8), which are smaller, the price makes sense. The quality is great from the bread to the Calabrian chili paste to the meats and mozz.

We went with the Uncle John (mortadella being the big selling point) and we added the chili paste.

I will definitely be back.

I stopped into this ramen joint for a quick bite after a sub-par burger. Since they were out of Orion (one of my favorite Japanese beers), we tried this fucker from NJ. Pretty good – a mild stout.

My buddy ordered some chicken wings, which were nicely crisped and garnished with fried garlic and shallots. Very nice.

I went with the “Prawn Mee” ramen, which is a non-traditional bowl but the menu descritpion sold me on this over the porky miso varietal. It was good. It had a great spicy kick to a broth that was clearly steeped in shrimp shell stock goodness.

The egg was perfectly cooked, and all the shrimp within were similarly perfect. I didn’t love the way the scallions were shredded, but I swept those aside easily so they didn’t get tangled up in the noodles.

Overall I enjoyed it, so I will probably be back to try the miso ramen.
