About Edison

Food

  • Keum Ho Jung Good Korean food located in the shopping center at the intersection of Old Post Road and Vineyard Road.
  • Super Duper Deli I and II Good sub shop to get a quick bite to eat. Cold cuts are usually better than hot subs.
  • Harolds NY Deli A jewish deli that has huge sandwiches but also a very good salad bar and desserts. A little pricy but worth the money.
  • Skylark Diner Generally, most entrees are good. The best item is the Lebanese Wrap at around $9. One of the few diners in New Jersey with a liqour license.
  • Le Peep A very good breakfast place. Has a ZAGAT rating.
  • Ferraros Pizza One of the better pizzerias in Edison. A little bit pricy but well worth the money. Dinners are also very good
  • Lams Kitchen A very good Chinese take-out place in Edison that are at a higher standard compared to most places. Prices are very reasonable.
  • Akbar Quality Indian food located off US Highway 1. Also has a lunch Indian buffet at around $8.
  • Mithaas, 1655-170 Oak Tree Road (At the intersection of Oak Tree Road and Wood Ave.),  +1 732 947 3014. The name means "sweetness" in Hindi. Serves Indian desserts, snacks and non-alcoholic drinks — it is in fact possible to make a meal out of some of the snacks. The Paneer & Veg Kathi Roll is passable, but the mango lassi is just right. Completely vegetarian. $10-15.
  • Ming Far Eastern cuisine, 1655-185 Oak Tree Road (At the intersection of Oak Tree Road and Wood Ave.),  +1 732 549-5051. For a sample of what the Indians have done to Chinese cuisine, this place is worth a visit. The restaurant is well-patronized and if you do not call ahead for a reservation, you are looking at a wait of around 20 minutes. $20 for a meal.

Shopping

Oak Tree Road near the border with Iselin has a large number of Indian restaurants and stores: people from all over come here to shop [1]. Whether you're looking for Bollywood videos, bhel puri, or a sari, you'll find it here. Note that many stores are closed on Mondays. The best way to get here is by taking the Garden State Parkway to Exit 131 (on-street parking is available), or taking the train to Metropark (it's about a 15-minute walk from the train station; exit the station, turn left onto Route 27, and then turn left again at the intersection with Oak Tree Road).
