For anyone who relies on the Somerset-Edison Rt 27 corridor like me, there are some recent restaurant changes I've noticed:
NoodleLicious near the corner of Plainfield Ave, grand opening. Chinese noodle soups. I had the beef noodle soup today, pretty good. The choy was fresher than you normally get, they were bright green instead of olive drab.
China Wok across the street from Sam Ash: Normally a standard chinese-american place, they added 5 authentic dishes on a special menu. I'll be trying the pork chop soon.
Le Vant - sort of new - mediterranean, right next to NoodleLicious, haven't been yet.
The little vietnamese grocery with the toasted banh mi is closed (was next to Igloo Tea House).
Shawarma Express: new place in Highland Park outside the supermarket, used to be a pizza place I think.
