Restaurant near Newark Airport

On the off chance that someone is actually looking at this right now, I'm about to head from CT down to pick up my daughter at Newark Airport. She'll get out of there between 7:00 and 8:00 p.m., and we'll all be hungry, no doubt. Any recommendations on a place to stop--not too complicated or fancy--heading out of the airport and back toward Connecticut? She's been in Haiti for a couple of months, so will appreciate some good fresh food. Chinese, Japanese, maybe?

I'll answer my own question. We found So Kong Dong (Soft Tofu Restaurant) in Fort Lee, practically on the on-ramp to the GW Bridge. It was just the thing. The menu is just several variations on tofu soup, and kalbi (ribs). An assortment of kimchi are served with it, and a stone bowl of rice, into which tea is poured after the rice is served. Evidently, you are supposed to drink the tea at the end of the meal. It was straightforward, delicious, and satisfying--the perfect place to stop. It's open until 10:00 p.m.

There's a good article about the place in Serious Eats.
