Koo Neo-Japanese, Route 79, Marlboro

July 3, 2008

We tried Koo Neo-Japanese Asian Fusion Restaurant in Marlboro tonight. Overall, not bad. Service, though pleasant, was mildly disjointed. The food was good so no worries there. He had the fried calamari for app, said it was okay, nothing special. I had the “Roti” – Asian pancake with chicken curry. I wasn’t sure how to eat it; I actually dipped the pancake in the curry sauce. It was tasty.

For my main, I had the Fantastic Eel roll and Tri-Color roll. Both were quite good and amply sized. The thing that stood out the most on the eel roll was the seaweed salad inside. Eel is typically my favorite, but the seaweed salad inside definitely kicked it up a notch! The Tri-Color roll has salmon, avocado, and ginger inside, tuna & yellowtail outside. I usually don’t like ginger, but this worked and I enjoyed it.

He had the sushi & sashimi combo and noted that it was really good. No complaints at all. The prices were on par with other sushi restaurants in the area. So I say it’s worth a visit especially if you’re into trying new places.

FYI: they do not do split checks.  Something about the software not able to do it.  But they will charge the same bill on separate cards if they have to.

3.5 out of 5 stars.

Pumpkin Patches, Hayrides, Corn Mazes, Oh My!

October 9, 2007

I have to say I am loving my commute home, especially this time of year. I know it certainly does not feel like Fall out there – 80+ degree temps in October make for an extended Indian Summer! The drive along Route 34 from Belmar through Farmingdale and Colt’s Neck on north into Marlboro and Aberdeen is full of glorious Autumn sights to behold. Every mile or so there are farms and roadside stands decked out and advertising “Pick Your Own Pumpkin”, “100s of Halloween Costumes on Sale”, and “Corn Mazes”.  I want to go on a hayride dammit!

This certainly is my favorite time of the year. I just wish the leaves would start changing in earnest. Then it would truly feel like Fall and Halloween just around the corner.

According to the forecast, temps are going to drop into the 50s later in the week. I’m probably going to kick myself for saying this, but… “It’s about time!” :)
