Went there yesterday w/ the hubby. It's awesome and I am thrilled to have a new business on Newark.

Korean Fried Chicken def takes a bit of time - they do each to order so most orders take 20-30 minutes to fill - I would pick up a menu and either call ahead if you want to pick it up or eat there or just have it delivered.

Is there a friend or neighbor in the neighborhood that you can just give $20 or $25 to move your car for you?

Re: JC ordinance requiring credit card for hotel/motel rental

It's not simply a JC thing. Hotels require a Credit card to guarantee a room and additionally to hold as a guarantee of payment in case you take from the mini fridge or decide to take a robe or two. You can choose to pay in cash but most hotels will not take you without a credit card to at least hold in case you skip out with the room's contents. If you don't have a credit card - thy will usually ask for a deposit to cover "incidentals".

Re: The Krave Truck?

Have eaten at the Krave truck twice - like it a lot. Interesting that Jersey City gets the West Coast Korean taco trend before the city. Basically it's traditonal Korean marinated meats served taco style on tortillas...they also have a kimchee quesadilla that shouldn't work but is awesome. You can also get all the meats they serve on rice. Only wish they weould serve some kim chee on the actual tacos to jazz it up slightly.

They change locations - so you have to check their twitter account before you seek them out. Personally , I love having more food options available and welcome them!!

Re: Save the Food Trucks of Jersey City

This argument always baffles me - Other countries have thriving street food scenes that bring a different element to the food culture. I guess that brick and morter stores feel threatened that these carts are taking business away from them - but I don't know many people who eat at the same restaurant day after day. We need options in Jersey City and right now food trucks are a huge trend.

Re: New Mexican Food Cart Downtown

The average crappy Subway sub is $5 so getting an authentic regional torta with good ingredients for $7 doesn't seem that much of a stretch to me.

I've been there at least three or four times since they've opened and the two guys that own the cart have been respectful and professional to me. I can see some of their clientele getting a little rowdy though - the last time I was there it seemed like 7 drunken guys were eating and hanging out - if my husband hadn't been with me - I wouldn't have stopped by for a sandwich.

My husband and I tried two tortas last night from this cart in front of the Grove St Path - they were great!!!

They were super friendly and really trying to drum up future business - had two tortas and another selection (sorry I was hungry and tired) available at about 9pm - he said he is going to be there weeknights - maybe Sat until 130am. This is NOT to be confused with whatever truck that is being mentioned!

Parking around McGinley Square
#9

I am moving to the area in a month and so far I am totally baffled by the parking zones. So, Is a permit required for the McGinely Square area? AND, does anyone know of any parking lots in the area that a space can be rented?

We checked out a couple of apartments over the weekend. Though we noticed just walking around (esp on Jersey st/1st ave area) there were a ton of For Sale/For Rent signs around. We had to cut our wandering short because it started raining but we plan on looking this weekend too.

Thanks for the advice thriftyT!

Well, before I checked out the area- the boards did make it seem like one of those "prepare yourself for the Thunderdome" sort of places. Obviously, checking out the area helped things as well. Thanks for all the input - it really made a difference.

as long as there is somewhere to park my car ...I've noticed the only real complaints Ive seen are about car breakins.
And thanks itgirl - I was a little freaked out and then after reading your post I realized that my first instincts about the area were on point.

My husband and I are scouting Jersey City this weekend for apartments - want to get familiar with the neighborhoods but also want to see if there is anything better than the 7 same apartment listings we've seen on Craigslist. Everyone is saying the rental market is slow but we've had some trouble finding something under 1600.00 that is pet friendly and near a Path. We have been told to walk around and look for "for rent" signs around.
