One of the great things about Hoboken is that you can do just that as our city is filled with great restaurants that serve cuisines from Irish, to Austro-Hungarian, to Cuban, and even Malaysian. Why not make a night or weekend checking out different kinds of cuisine right in your own neighborhood? Here are some places to try around The Rivington, broken down by continent:
Cuban – La Isla Restaurant
Try their papa rellena appetizer, think lightly fried mash potato stuffed with ground beef, shaped into a ball and served with sweet salsa.
Mexican – Charrito’s
This place is BYOB, but bring a tasty wine, and they can turn it into a great sangria!
Middle Eastern – Mamoun’s Falafel Restaurant
Mint lemonade and hummus – we need not say more!
Malaysian – Satay
Affordable prices, authentic and flavorful food, with great lunch specials and they also deliver.
Indian – Karma Kafe
Tasty garlic naan and Chana Palak (chickpeas in a spiced creamy spinach sauce) are two musts.
Vietnamese – Pho Nomenon Noodle & Grill
Try out their pho, a popular Vietnamese noodle soup of broth, linguine-shaped rice noodles.
Irish – Carpe Diem Pub & Restaurant
Fish & chips!
Austro-Hungarian – Pilsener Haus & Biergarten
The main focus is a variety of German draft beer, all with detailed descriptions that help you make an educated choice. For food go to the grill or pick an appetizer, as they have lots of options!
French – Brasserie de Paris
Everyone raves over their Coq au vin, so go for it!
Italian – Augustino’s
Their portions are large, so be prepared –try the chicken parmesan, and save room for the icebox cake!
