I reviewed this place a while ago but only today did I really come to appreciate just how excellent Nemo is. Sure, they have every kind of sushi under the sun, but what keeps me coming back is their selection of hot meals. They have Japanese such as udon of course, but also a decent amount of Chinese and even one Indonesian. Their red curry is simply one of the tastiest curries I have ever eaten in my life. Better than any Chinese restaurant around here, and right up there with some Indian ones. Granted, it is a different style of curry, but man is it good. Only $6.95 for a chicken curry lunch special, and that includes rice, soup, and salad. For $2 more you can get shrimp or scallops (my normal go-to). For such quality and that value, it is hard to believe. Friend and I went for lunch today. Two meals, soups, salads, and an appetizer we ordered separately and the bill was $19.

A different take on the Crab Rangoon. Paper-thin wrappers which made this like little pillows rather than the heavy, greasy concoction you may receive from takeout places.
Mc Donough’s is great for a drink or two and some live music on your way to or from Drew’s. Drew’s is the highlight of the town, there is a dinner too that I think either @corvette_johnny or @VikingKaj think very highly of as well. That’s about it as far as Keyport goes.
keep meaning to try that place- but it’s across street from fishery. we just end up there- it’s good, good way to force fam to way fish, and an outstanding value as well. Would love to hear some Ho opinions though.
I just REALLY wish that Keyport Fishery did something else besides fried. Fried fish and french fries is too much for me. I know this is probably blasphemy and I’m likely getting myself banned from the board!
agree- it’s a bit much- it’s mostly a summer treat- a really good way to get kids to eat fish and a Great value, the sandwich plate is def big enough for a meal in itself. Something about fried shrimp in the summer; the Mrs was thinking about the soups next time to break it up a bit. Otherwise we head to boondocks in RB, they have a few more preparations to choose from, including Lobster roll. Used to like Navesink Fishery as well, and they do a bit more, but recent price increases have made them less than desirable lately.
