#SCBDExclusive: #GetReady LaLa’s Puerto Rican Kitchen will be #CookingItUpOldSchool in #OldBridge #NJ #spon



If you haven’t tried authentic Puerto Rican food, I highly suggest you do! I’m happy to announce that SCBD is working with LaLa’s Puerto Rican Kitchen, a food truck that will be located on Route 9 South (3854 Route 9 South) in Old Bridge, NJ and has an expected opening of October 1st 2013.


LaLa’s specializes in ‘cooking it up old school’ because ‘it’s gotta be perfect!’ Which it is, LaLa’s food is comfort food, ranging from arroz con pollo to specialty empanadas just like abuela would make. A few signature dishes you will want to try upon opening are:

  • Arroz con Pollo served with red beans and sweet plantains
  • Pernil (succulent roasted pork) served with arroz con gandules (rice with pigeon peas) and refreshing napa, cabbage salad
  • Rotisserie Chicken, marinated in citrus garlic served with yellow or white rice, black or red beans, and tostones (fried plantains with their signature mojito sauce or salsa verde)


If you aren’t hungry already, be sure to try their specialty empanadas. These are definitely not your average empanadas. I love that they each come with their own LaLa’s signature sauce. Here are just a few to start you off:

  • · Beef
  • · Chicken
  • · Pulled Pork
  • · Mac ‘n’ cheese
  • · Chili

#SCBDFavorite: Quality Italian at Cafe Luna in Old Bridge, NJ!


As I mentioned in my 10th Ave Burrito piece earlier, I’ve been taking a few short & long trips home this month. On one of my short trips home when I was there for basically a day, my mom decided to take me and her boyfriend out to a late lunch. I was craving a tartare (I still am) and really wanted to go to a nice, restaurant that wasn’t a typical bar. Nick, my mom’s boyfriend suggested we go to Cafe Luna in Old Bridge, since he heard tons of great things about it. I checked out the menu, which looked amazing so we did.

Cafe Luna has a great location and is right off Route 9 North, the dining room is spacious and seats were comfortable.Our waiter greeted us and took our drink order. I ordered the sangria, which was good and had tons of flavor. Since we were hungry we decided to order appetizers, we ordered the bruschetta and calamari (on bottom of pic below).


The calamari (pictured above) was delicious, not as crispy as I’d prefer but it still had good  flavor and breading. The bruschetta was delicious: fresh tomatoes and onions on big pieces of crostini, it hit the spot. For an entree I got the Filetto di Pomodoro (middle), my mom, Arlene got the Anneletti (left), and her boyfriend Nick got the Linguine Nere (right). We all enjoyed our meals and had some leftovers, but they were pretty filling. I really like that Cafe Luna makes their own pasta, which is a rare find in restaurants in that area.

16510_10151263599230588_586002293_nOf course, our meal would not be complete without dessert. We decided to try their homemade tiramisu which was delicious. It had just enough alcohol flavor in it, and it was so light, one of the lightest I’ve had. Heck, I’d go back just for that with cappucino.

Next, time your in the Monmouth County area and looking for homemade Italian I highly recommend Cafe Luna in Old Bridge, NJ!

Buon Apetito!
