Mexican Food in Monmouth County?

Hi Chisai,

This is Deb Smith from Jersey Bites. Sorry I'm so late in my reply. As you can see I'm a "she" not a he but I don't mind. I love the referrals. You are going to have a very difficult time finding authentic Mexican food here in NJ. it's just not something we're known for. Like you said, we do a lot of other cuisines very well, but when it comes to Mexican we definitely put our own spin on things. There's a tiny little place in Point Pleasant Beach that opened up next to a Mexican grocery store, I think its called Mi Cucina. They are known for their authentic Mexican cuisine.

If you find a place you really enjoy in NJ, please send me a tip through the website. Thanks.

Cook the Book: Chicken Liver Pate

I use my MIL's recipe and all it calls for is chopped onion, butter and chicken livers. I think its delicious, but I see a lot of recipes calling for chopped hard boiled egg. Comments on the egg addition?
