If you are from the Tri-State area, you’re probably familiar with the incredible transformation that Hoboken has gone through over the past 15 years. Due to inflated NYC rental prices, Hoboken has turned into the twenty-something’s dream: easily accessible to “the City”, a lively nightlife, and, for those who like to eat, restaurants galore!
Last weekend, I spent the day with my sister (Happy Mother’s Day, Sis!), her husband, Eric (not to be confused with my Eric… yes, we both married people with the same name), and my niece. It was an unseasonably warm spring afternoon and everyone was in a particularly good mood. A football game was taking place in the park, dogs were being walked, and the food trucks (oh the food trucks!) were out in full force.
We stopped by The Cinnamon Snail, which only sells “vegan organic” dishes and baked goods. Their burrito was mind-blowingly good. And I have to say, I was skeptical. But the combination of the kale, tofu scramble, tempeh, and garlic “mayo” was a magical combination.
But besides the trucks, you can find just about anything to eat: from authentic Belgian fries to German baked goods (see picture above). So, if you ever have the opportunity to spend some time in Hoboken, I can’t imagine you’d be disappointed… or left hungry.
