If there’s one type of restaurant that I visit more than any other, it has to be Chinese restaurants. New Jersey is full of amazing hole-in-the-wall gems that serve authentic eats from across the wide spectrum of Chinese cuisine. I think Chinese food has gotten a reputation as one of America’s most beloved cuisines by being diverse, delicious – and casual! But one new Chinese restaurant in Metuchen, NJ is looking to change that. Welcome to Ram & Rooster. Run by Chef Sean Yan, this tiny spot is the first Chinese restaurant in New Jersey to offer a full tasting menu developed by the chef, in the same way that many high-end French restaurants do. I’ve never seen a Chinese restaurant like this in New Jersey, and our first glimpse of the innovative dishes makes clear this is another exciting addition to Metuchen’s bustling dining scene.

If you have an evening reservation and are looking to kill some time first, why not have a drink and some apps at the record-setting tequila bar Meximodo, only a short walk away? And if you’re staying in the area for the night, we highly recommend the Homewood Suites by Hilton Edison/Woodbridge – it’s a perfect spot for families and offers a free breakfast buffet.
