To be perfectly honest, and not to knock the place, but I would have to be fairly intoxicated to order half those things. (ear with cartilage? just out of curiosity, can you order it without cartilage too?)
Never been to Don Manuel’s , but I’m familiar with it.
Other places I’ve been to in Perth Amboy are:
Taco Express - Mexican spot good for tacos and great pambazos
Rico Taco Mex - Mexican spot with Colombian bread
Alquimia Bakery - Colombian restaurant/bakery - wasn’t a huge fan of here
There’s also a Tortilleria I’ve been meaning to check out Tortilleria Lopez on 182 Fayette St.
I’ve only been for lunch and would never get rodizio for lunch, but I’m so glad to see the Armory updated since Sandy. Have you ever had the rodizio there and if so how was it? I’ve been for cocktails a few times during the summer when the outside bar is open and they have life music. I really want to make a point of getting there for dinner some time, is it worth passing right by Fernandes & Costa Verdi to go for dinner?
For me, I always needed white vinegar with blood sausage (or any blood product such as Dinuguan). Just a splash of that acidity does wonders to cut any heaviness. Lime would work exceptionally well I imagine.
