  1. A generous scoop each of the egg salad, cranberry chicken salad, and tuna pasta salad from the Whole Foods salad bar...yep, $9.50 worth of mayonnaise. This month is going to be a doozy.
  2. Half a family sized bag of Ruffles and kraft pre-made french onion dip...oh, the shame.
  3. I will pack my own lunches instead of eating disgusting, overpriced cafeteria food.
  4. Thanks so much for your input. Girasole was one of the tour companies I was considering.
  5. Inspired by Daddy-A's Excellent French Adventure, I have decided to set aside a portion of my Italian honeymoon for a walking tour. Does anyone have any experience with companies that organize walking tours in Italy? Has anyone been on one? Thanks in advance for your help.
  6. I agree. USC or Gramercy Tavern. I enjoyed many special occasions at both when I was a kid.
  7. I think you're talking about Hiram's. It's really, really good.

    I am glad to hear that some are still enjoying DD. I have reservations to go for Valentines Day and have been really looking forward to it! Do either of you have any specific recommendations? I will be sure to put in my two cents after I've been.
  10. Here in Hoboken we love our mozzarella. A local deli makes hot roast beef subs with "mutz" and gravy Thursdays and Saturdays and people line up down the block for it. Out of towners always think it sounds gross...that is, until they try it. In case roast beef and mutz fails to turn you off, how about tuna salad and mutz? corned beef and mutz, with mustard? Those are Friday's and Tuesday's special sandwiches, respectively. Guess what- they're delicious.
  11. Sorry! Lahmajun are meat pies of Turkish or Armenian origin. Here's what wikipedia has to say about them (with a good picture): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lahmajun When I was in elementary school, I had an Armenian friend who was embarrassed about her lahmajun lunches. Of course I was always willing to trade her my PB & J. Finding this place really brought back good memories.
  12. I've been working out of a Doctor's office in Cliffside Park for the past month, and I kept passing this storefront with a big sign that says Lahmajun. I decided to go in on Friday and see what they had to offer. It's not much of a shopping experience- you talk to the shopkeeper through a window (kind of like a bank teller), and you can't look at the merch before you buy. Also they sell their lahmajun by the dozen ($11.50 for beef, but they also have chicken and veg). On the other hand, I cannot speak highly enough of the lahmajun. I made some lentil soup last night and put a few in the oven, and it made a great, cheap, and quick meal. They would make great hors d'oeuvres for a party, or can just be heated up for a fast snack. The place is called Middle East Lahmajun and it's at 355 Anderson Ave in Fairview.
  13. There's a block full of Indian restaurants and shops on Newark Ave, just a couple of blocks from Journal Square. I like the Dosa place a lot. I don't know if it would be worth coming from Manhattan for, but it's spicy, delicious and cheap.
  14. I love Cucharamama! I think it is the single best restaurant in Hoboken. Their cocktails are also incredible. A word to the wise: their appetizers, while delish, are freakishly small. I'm talking two or three bites, for $8 or so. The entrees are much more generously portioned. We had the white bean soup and roast leg of pork when we were there last, and we really enjoyed our meal. Hope you like it as much as I do.
