If you’re ready for a little mini getaway with a Jamaican, Thai or Mexican dish, then visit these amazing local restaurants and you can feel like – at least during dinner hour – that you’re thousands of miles away from the cold!
Jerkin Chicken, located at 234 West Side Ave, Jersey City which is about 15 minutes from your Liberty Towers apartment, is an established, family-run restaurant doling out traditional Jamaican food in a laid-back environment.
Jerk is the Jamaican process of spicing and grilling meats, poultry and even vegetables, although the most popular are jerk pork and jerk chicken. The resulting food yields a spicy-sweet flavor and a tender texture.
Sawadee, located at 137 Newark Ave, Jersey City which is a 15-minute walk from your Liberty Towers apartment, is a cozy eatery that offers familiar Thai curries and noodle dishes plus lunch specials and outdoor seats.
Sawadee started in since 1983 and since then, they have served more than a million people across the United States. In 2008, they moved to Jersey City and have been at home in the amazing local restaurant scene ever since! This is definitely the place to check out if you are looking to try some authentic Thai dishes with a spicy punch.
