Check out their website here.

But it's not just the pizza that's incredible.

I've also fallen in love with their gyros.

I usually go for the beef lamb gyro platter with broccoli, carrots, and roasted potatoes.

It comes with a salad and pita, which makes it more than enough food for a very reasonable price.

The service is always great, too!

The best part about this small Greek restaurant is the warm and welcoming atmosphere.

It's my go-to spot for bagel sandwiches in the area.

Just the other day, I walked in with my 8-month-old daughter, and they greeted us and kindly offered a bagel to my little girl, who was beyond happy with the treat.

Whenever I visit Caesar's Bagels & Deli, I'm never disappointed.

I love that they use real meat for their sandwiches and offer a wide range of bread and topping options.

I recently dined at Roti Plus Caribbean Restaurant, and I can't stop raving about it!

They made me feel right at home.

The food was beyond amazing – I still can't get the delicious taste of their salmon pie and bake and shark out of my mind.

I even grabbed some dal puri to go, and it was just as scrumptious.

The ingredients they use are extremely fresh, and you can definitely tell that they put a lot of love and care into each dish.

Their roti is out of this world – it's so buttery and perfectly seasoned.

I was so full but couldn't stop eating it!

The prices at Roti Plus are also quite reasonable, especially considering the top-quality ingredients they use and the generous portions they serve.

We had a variety of dishes, including Carne Asada Tacos, Al Pastor Tacos, Birria Tacos, Cheese Pupusas, Ceviche with shrimp, and Horchata.

All the dishes were cooked fresh to order, and the service was incredibly friendly.

When I asked if they could leave the cilantro off my tacos, they kindly offered to remake them for me.

I can confidently say that Le Dish Asian Fusion is my go-to spot for satisfying my cravings for diverse Asian cuisine.

With an extensive menu featuring dishes from Chinese, Thai, and Japanese cuisine, it's always a challenge to settle on what to order.

Just the other day, I enjoyed their steamed shrimp dumplings and pineapple fried rice with shrimp – the flavors were incredible, and the portion sizes left me feeling satisfied.

My friend, who joined me for dinner, grabbed the pepper steak, and he couldn't stop raving about it.

One thing I truly appreciate about Le Dish Asian Fusion is their accommodating service and the warm, inviting atmosphere.

I've noticed that they're more than happy to adjust dishes to meet dietary restrictions, such as making them gluten-free.

I also love the convenience of their take-out options; in fact, I find myself ordering from them at least once a week.

Their sushi and poke bowls are some of my favorites, and I can't forget to mention their Thai dishes – oh and don't forget, they offer a 10% discount for cash payments!

Villaggio Iccara

I had been meaning to try out Villaggio Iccara for a while, and one evening, I finally decided to make a reservation for dinner.

As soon as I entered the restaurant, I was impressed by the colorful and warm ambiance, which set the tone for a lovely evening.

The service was impeccable from the moment we arrived.

We started off with their Bruschetta appetizer, which was an absolute delight.

The freshness of the ingredients and the perfect balance of flavors had us craving more.

For the main course, I opted for their Parpadella Ponzo.

I must say, it was one of the best pasta dishes I've ever tasted.

The pasta was cooked to perfection, and the sauce was simply divine.

My dining companion tried their famous chicken Parmesan, which was equally delicious, thanks to the mouthwatering sauce that accompanied the dish.

Another highlight of our dining experience was the freshly baked bread that was served throughout the meal.

It was soft, doughy, and incredibly hard to resist.

We couldn't help but indulge in a few extra servings.

Malaga Restaurant

One of my favorite restaurants in the neighborhood is Malaga, a Spanish gem known for its generous servings of classics, monthly flamenco performances, and mouth-watering sangria.

Just last week, I took my friends visiting from out of town to Malaga, and they were absolutely blown away by the authentic Barcelona vibe and excellent service.

The minute we walked in, we were greeted warmly and promptly seated.

The bread they served was warm and fresh, and their renowned red sangria tasted just like juice, making it dangerously easy to drink.

We ordered a variety of dishes, including the paella, which was packed with flavor and cooked to perfection, unlike some of the unfortunate experiences I've heard from others.

My personal favorite, though, was the fried calamari, which was crispy and full of taste.

Plus, the live flamenco performance was a fun and lively addition to the dining experience, making us feel like we were right in the heart of Spain.

I've always been a fan of pizza, and when I heard about Corleone's Old Fashion Tomato Pie & Pizza, I knew I had to give it a try.

The pizza did not disappoint!

The sauce was hands down the best part - it was rich, flavorful, and had just the right amount of garlic for my taste.

While the cheese and sausage weren't as prominent, the overall pizza experience was still enjoyable.

One thing that stood out to me during my visit was the butter & brown sugar wings.

Although they were on the smaller side, they were packed with flavor and definitely worth trying.

The cleanliness of the place made me feel comfortable.

The large parking lot was a bonus, and I hope they eventually add more outdoor seating options to make better use of the space.

Kusina Ni Inang

One day, after running errands in the Hamilton area, I decided to try a new restaurant for lunch, and that's when I stumbled upon Kusina Ni Inang.

I've heard great things about their Kalderetang Kambing, Kare-kare, and Pork Barbecue from a friend, so I was eager to try their dishes for myself.

During my visit, I decided to order the Lechon Kiwali (deep-fried pork), Lumpia Shanghai (Filipino spring rolls), and rice lunch combo in addition to the Ginisang Sayote (sautéed chayote).

The order arrived timely and tasted amazing, though I noticed the food's temperature was a bit tepid, which is not unusual for Filipino cuisine.

The Ginisang Sayote was flavorful, with a mild kick and some minced pork, while the Lechon Kawali and Lumpia Shanghai were cooked well with delicious dipping sauces.

I opted for the all-you-can-eat program, which was a fantastic decision as I got to try various new foods and enjoy every dish I ordered.

The sushi and sashimi were of very high quality, and I was pleasantly surprised by the taste and texture of the rice in each dish.

It was perfectly soft and not too dry, making each roll and sashimi taste incredible.

The Asian main dishes were nothing short of delicious as well.

Throughout the meal, the service was top-notch.

The restaurant was clean and well-maintained, which added to the overall dining experience.

Meatheadz Cheesesteaks (Lawrence Township)

I have to tell you about this amazing place I discovered called Meatheadz Cheesesteaks.

I had heard some great reviews, so I decided to give it a try.

And let me just say I was not disappointed.

The cheesesteaks and sandwiches are absolutely divine, with generous portions that leave me with leftovers for the next day.

The place is quite popular, and I can see why.

What sets Meatheadz apart is the use of real ribeye steak, shaved perfectly thin and piled high to form what they call a "MEAT MOUNTAIN."

They also have a condiment station where you can add delicious extras, like sweet peppers, hot cherry peppers, banana peppers, pickles, or even ketchup, if that's your thing.

Their online ordering system works great, and the food is always ready when you arrive.

My Quate (Mercerville)

I have been a regular customer at My Quate for a while now, and I must say that the food here never disappoints.

Each dish is made fresh when you order, giving it an authentic and unique taste that's hard to find elsewhere.

One of my go-to menu items is the BBQ Grilled Chicken quesadilla – it's an absolute must-try!

I also enjoy the Grilled chicken burrito platter and Jalapeño cheese poppers.

However, I must admit that I found the Grilled chicken tacos to be a bit bland.

Though I've never dined in, I can vouch for their excellent take-out service.

My orders are always ready on time, and the food remains fresh and piping hot.

Aryana Kabab & Grill (Mercerville)

As a fan of Afghan cuisine, I have been visiting Aryana Kabab & Grill for quite some time now.

This informal and cozy eatery has a wide range of dishes, including flavorful kebabs and vegetarian options.

One of my go-to dishes is their Lamb Tikka - tender and full of flavor without the fire-burn taste.

Another favorite of mine is the Lamb Shank, which has a perfect balance of spices and fall-off-the-bone lamb meat.

I must say, their rice is something else - it's soft, fluffy, and doesn't bloat my stomach like other places.

The quality of their ingredients is top-notch, even down to the oil they use for cooking.

Their unique white sauce, which is creamy and has a citrus accent, is a must-try as well.

Aryana Kabab & Grill is also quite conscious about the current situation, and they have spaced out their tables well for social distancing.

I have also used their catering services for an event, and I was amazed by their patience, helpfulness, and the delicious dishes they prepared.

Jojo's Tavern (Trenton)

One of my absolute favorite places to unwind after a long day is Jojo's Tavern.

The atmosphere there is always warm and welcoming, with a casual vibe that makes it easy to relax and enjoy their delicious food.

One of the highlights of Jojo's has to be their pizza.

The crust is the perfect combination of crispy and chewy, and their pepperoni pie is to die for.

I'd easily give it a 7.5 out of 10!

They also have a fantastic house salad, which is always fresh and loaded with flavor, earning a solid 8.0 in my book.

What makes Jojo's really special, though, is their friendly service.

They always make sure we have a great experience, whether I'm just grabbing a quick bite or hosting a party.

One of my favorite dishes at Jojo's is the soft shell crab sandwich.

It's always fresh and not too breaded, and the avocado and bacon add-on is the perfect touch.

I just can't get enough of it

I decided to go for the pierogi, and let me tell you, they were absolutely divine.

The presentation was beautiful, and the flavors were exquisite.

It's hard to find authentic Eastern European food in the area, but Blue Danube nails it every time.

The oxtails were cooked to perfection, and the curry goat was incredibly tender and flavorful.

I also tried their ginger and pineapple juice, which was so refreshing, and their pink lemonade was just as amazing.

The food at Bamboo Grill is definitely spicy, but that's what I love about Jamaican cuisine.

The flavors and spices they use make every dish stand out, and I must say the oxtail was an absolute must-try.
