I go on a kind of food tour of Freehold once a month or so, starting at route 18 and going across to route 33. My quick take on the places I go to.
Large supermarket mostly East Asian food and ingredients, but they do carry some south asian and Thai ingredients. Bakery and Deli serving prepared foods. In the prepared food area they sell their own (labeled) Soy Bean and Pickle in a plastic tray, it is I think salted edame and cabage with a hind of chili. I personally really like it. I also like the Moon Cakes, Green Tea Ice Cream, I buy packaged snacks mostly choosing them randomly.
In same mall are two restaurants, i only ate at Koo neo Asian and enjoyed it.
The other is:
Ethnic spice has South Asian food. I mostly buy meals in a pouch, snacks, and tea such as Tetley Cardamon. They make their own south asian pickles and chutney.
Tuscany is an Italian food store. Nice selection of Italian meats and cheeses, but also fruit and vegetables.
3)On State Route 33, not to be confused with near by HWY 33:
Market and deli, they sell a number of hard to find items. I enjoyed the Gyro and Greek Salad.
An interesting food product they sell, Fig Balsamic Cream:
In the same mall as the Greek store I just looked inside, but it looked good.
I also took a look at: https://www.facebook.com/Exito-Fresh-...
Just passed by to look. More of a smaller local supermarket with soaps and detergents and stuff, they had Peru Foods brand salsas like Rocoto that were interesting but I did not buy any this trip.
