Although the restaurants of New Jersey are often neglected due to their proximity to NYC, the Garden State’s Union City has seen major redevelopment recently. This has led to a number of great restaurants strong enough to compete with their neighbour. We take a look at some of these…
De Palma Pizzeria
De Palma has gained itself a reputation as ‘the best pizza in town’. That is not to exclude some of their other dishes that keep fans coming back again and again for some De Palma pleasure. These are the classics; chicken Caesars, meatball parms – done exceptionally well with the lashings of sauce and cheese that screams Italian-American cuisine.

After a long trip through Central America and Union City, rest your feet at Noches Restaurante, a Colombian gem. With the aim to revive and renew Colombian cuisine in New Jersey, they have expanded to four restaurants, all equally committed to keeping the best of the country’s cuisine alive. Of these four, however, their Union City location is probably the best, benefitting as it does from the great quality of Cuban food in the city.
