Asian food in Hunterdon Co, NJ????

I moved to W. Hunterdon County from Metuchen - I love it!

There is just one deficiency, good asian food.

Metuchen had a plethora of great chinese and indian grocers, good sushi 'Mr Pi' and was a stone throw away from MeeMah (balacan okra & shredded beef with green chili), Penang (Beef Rendang, Hokkien Char Mee), Nanking (Mongolian Beef), Moghul (everything) and Mee Mee (in N. Brunswick) for Squid Kung Pow, lobster with black beans and chinese eggplant with garlic and fried ground pork) to name but a few.

Out here in the country, almost nothing (wth?!?!)

Most of the food that I have tried here Thai - too watery and not hot, Chinese (don't use pork belly for double cooked pork, no real sichuan food at all and even the 'american classics' are full of vegetables like carrots and celery -urgh! Indian - where do I go? I have yet to find one.

The only place that I have found that is halfway decent is the Pandan Room in Hackettstown and that isn't in Hunterdon County.

What gives?

Hunterdon schools rock so where are the Asians? (before anyone saddles up on their high horse I am part Chinese)

More importantly, where do I buy some of their food out in Hunterdon County?
