Hoboken Girl’s Guide to Vegetarian Menu Options in Hoboken (Part II)

Previously I had posted about my quasi-veggie eating experiences. I’ve had a lot of fun in Hoboken staking out (no pun intended) great vegetarian dishes, especially in places that it might be kind of tricky to find something healthy, protein-filled, and animal-free. Note: I’m not vegan, so eggs and cheese are allowed!

So here are a few more of my vegetarian finds throughout the Mile Square:

1. Precious Chinese Cuisine

This is my favorite place for Chinese take out, vegetarian or not. I usually make a tough choice: steamed veggies and tofu, or chicken and broccoli (which can easily be substituted with tofu). Like I said, some days I feel like eating meat…so I do. But other days I’m perfectly satisfied with the steamed vegetable dish. It looks like this:

 This dish comes with an awesome garlic brown sauce. Super healthy and really yummy.

2. Grimaldi’s Pizza

Grimaldi’s is such a delicious restaurant, no matter what you order. I try to go easy on lots of simple carbohydrates when I’m eating vegetarian (too much simple sugar isn’t good!), but I once in a while splurge on this fantastic vegetarian pizza: Eggplant & Ricotta. Note: It’s not on the menu; I made it up! But I will say that during my trip to Grimaldi’s recently, the waiter was pretty jealous of our order of this. Add some Parmesan cheese and garlic, and you’re in business.

3. Karma Kafe Indian Cuisine

This is another place for great take out food. If I’m eating meat, I’ll order the Chicken Tikka Masala (it’s a safe choice for anyone new to eating Indian, FYI!) or something similar. However, when going veggie, my favorite dish at Karma Kafe is the Vegetable Jafrezi. It is a mix of Indian spices, peas, potatoes, carrots, and other delicious vegetables…all mixed together in an almost creamy sauce. It is so so good! Most dishes come with Dahl, a wonderful blend of lentils that form a protein-filled soup. It’s a perfect addition to the Jalfrezi dish!

4. The Turtle Club

I had dinner and drinks at the Turtle Club, and was very impressed with this Vegetable Panini. This bad boy had roasted eggplant, zucchini, peppers, and mozzarella on it. My favorite part was that it had a side of pesto for dipping the sandwich into! The bread was crispy and perfectly toasted, and needless to say, I thoroughly enjoyed the meal!

5. Re-Juice A Nation

What about dessert, you might ask?

If you’re going vegetarian, you might as well head to Re-Juice A Nation and pick up one of their smoothies. They have lots of great boosts to add to their drinks (protein, energy, greens, etc) that will add some extra benefits to the healthy and sweet treat!

 Are YOU a Hoboken Vegetarian?

Tweet The Hoboken Girl your favorite spots/dishes for meat-free dining.

Hoboken Host Committee and Hoboken Girl Present Monday Makeovers Starting July 9th with Mayor Zimmer

Fashion and Football meet on the gridiron of the Hoboken retail scene with Monday Makeovers to start with Hoboken’s own Mayor Dawn Zimmer. The Hoboken Girl website  www.Hobokengirl.com, will be covering this series that spans multiple stores in Hoboken. Read below for more details….


With the 2014 Super Bowl coming to the New York Metro Area, Hoboken’s small business community preps for the big game by showcasing its appeal as a hot spot for commerce and tourism!

Monday Makeover Logo

The Hoboken Host Committee, an independent initiative spearheaded by members of the community in an effort to optimize Hoboken’s commercial and tourism appeal in preparation for the 2014 Super Bowl, is pleased to announce the launch of its "Monday Makeovers" program, beginning July 9 and continuing throughout the summer.
What does a fashion makeover have to do with the Super Bowl?

Committee Chairman Scott Katz says, “The motivation of this committee is to get people actively engaged in events and activities that emphasize the spirit of cooperation and support found in Hoboken’s business community. With a wide range of terrific shopping options, the city’s boutiques seem like a great place to start.”


Every Monday, from July 9 though the end of summer, boutiques will do a “makeover” that will be videotaped and then posted on www.Hobokengirl.com, giving viewers a chance to comment and learn more about the stores visited. Representing City Hall’s ongoing commitment to small business, Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer will participate in the first three installments of "Monday Makeovers."

"Shopping locally is a convenient and fun way to support our local businesses," says Mayor Zimmer. "I’m excited to be part of this effort to showcase some of the great boutiques that make Hoboken a wonderful place to shop." The Mayor will be at Dear Hannah (503 Washington Street) on July 9, Air Studios (92 Hudson Street) on July 16 and Iconic Fashion Lounge (509 Washington Street) July 23. These stores will be selecting outfits for the Mayor to try on. Fellow shoppers hunting for that great new look are welcome to join the Mayor, as she explores the wealth of shopping opportunities right here in the Mile Square.

Switching gears to Hoboken’s youngest residents, "Monday Makeovers" will continue on July 30, with Baby Olivia Dunn being outfitted at Bellie & Katrina (159 4th St) and again on August 6, with K.C. Kids (463 5th Street). On August 13, 6th Ward Councilwoman Jen Giattino will transition the program back to women’s fashion for the remaining "Monday Makeovers," with Sweet Nicholas (718 Washington Street), Revival Vintage (47 Harrison Street) and Townhouse 620 (620 Washington Street) all
confirmed to participate in the showcase.


"Monday Makeovers" will conclude with a party and prize drawing on Sept 10, coinciding with the first NFL Monday Night Football game of the season. Donated prize items will include a $200 gift certificate to 10th & Willow Bar & Grill (935 Willow Avenue), two free tickets to a wine tasting event and a $50 gift certificate to purchase wine from Court Street (61 6th Street), a $100 gift certificate from Cork City (239 Bloomfield Street) and a consultation plus two free acupuncture sessions at Ariel’s Apothecary (80 Park Avenue).

Hoboken Host Commitee 2014 logo


Offering breathtaking views, renowned nightlife, fantastic restaurants, fabulous boutiques and convenient walkability, Hoboken is looking to provide visitors to the New York Metro Area with an easier, more affordable travel alternative as they come to town for the big game—not just in 2014, but for any upcoming NFL weekend. Hoboken serves as the railhead for New Jersey Transit, which provides a direct train to MetLife Stadium that runs frequently on game day. By putting its best foot forward, Hoboken can be the big winner on game day—but it takes a team effort. For more information on the Hoboken Host committee, contact Scott Katz at HobokenHostCommittee@gmail.com.

8 Father’s Day Cravings Satisfied: Best Hoboken Restaurants to Take Dad to Eat by Hoboken Girl

The “Hoboken Girl” is back with a new post/guest column on the best places to take dad for Father’s Day in Hoboken which is Sunday June 17th this year…..

Father’s Day is fast approaching – and sometimes, it’s more important to spend QT with dad than anything else. I always say that the way to a man’s heart is his stomach, and dad is no different! So, I’ve compiled a list of places to take dad to eat in Hoboken, depending on his cravings. Do men even get cravings? Anyway, I digress.

 1. Dad loves Brunch: Court Street (61 6th Street)

Court Street is a wonderful brunch spot. My favorite brunch drink is the Pointsetta – a mimosa with a twist (cranberry + champagne). Classy yet casual is the brunch vibe here.

…or 10th & Willow (935 Willow Avenue)

10th and Willow is another great brunch spot with a classy yet casual feeling. The Cream Cheese & Strawberry-Stuffed French Toast and the Chocolate Chip Banana Pancakes are some of my favorites. There are also a lot of yummy egg options.

2. Dad loves a Burger & Fries: Helmer’s Restaurant (1036 Washington Street)

The burgers at Helmer’s are delicious, so my friends say. Being a quasi-vegetarian, I haven’t tried them. But I have had numerous Hoboken sources tell me that Helmer’s is the best if you’re looking for a juicy burger.

3. Dad is a Lush: The Turtle Club (936 Park Avenue)

Besides delicious food, the Turtle Club has an extensive wine, beer, and bourbon selection. Many of the wines are family-owned and organic vineyards. Can’t beat that!

4. Dad loves Sushi: Robongi (520 Washington Street)

I don’t know many dads that love sushi – but hey, I could be wrong. That being said, if dad has a sushi craving, Robongi is definitely the way to go. It’s Zagat-rated, fun, and always appearing on my Instagram account. I order it weekly, if not more. The sweet potato rolls are the bomb.

5. Dad loves Mexican: Charritos (1024 Washington Street)

There are two Charritos locations, but I prefer the uptown one. They make guacamole for you to order, right there, in front of you. It’s pretty amazing, and sure to wow dad. They also serve margarita mix, in which you can BYO Tequila.

6. Dad loves Seafood: Elysian Cafe (1001 Washington Street)

I am a scallops fan, and I love Elysian’s scallops. I also have taste tested the mussels, and they are delicious. Elysian has a very casual yet upscale feel which will make Dad feel right at home. They also have a great brunch!

…or Anthony David’s (953 Bloomfield Street)

Anthony David’s scallops are also out of this world. Most things you taste here will be just delectable. It’s also BYOB, an added bonus, if dad is a lush. In which case, see #3.

7. Dad loves Italian: Augustinos (1104 Washington Street)

I recently tried Augustino’s for the first time, and I realized the hype was totally worth it. Delicious chicken parm, delicious appetizers, delicious wine, and great service. Dad will love this place if he is an Italian food lover! They don’t take reservations on the weekends, which is a bummer – so hopefully you can get a spot. Go early – and expect a wait.

8. Dad loves Brick Oven Pizza: Grimaldi’s (411 Washington Street)

If Dad is a specialty pizza lover, he’ll love Grimaldi’s. Casual ambiance, delicious wines, and amazing pizzas. I recommend the eggplant + ricotta pizza (not on the menu) – just ask for it.

With this guide, you’re bound to eat some fantastic dishes and have some fun time with pops.  Regardless of what you do with your dad — make sure to enjoy the day!

Hoboken Girl’s Guide to Vegetarian Menu Options in Hoboken

The Hoboken Girl whose website is www.hobokengirl.wordpress.com chimes in on the health benefits of being “quasi-vegetarian” in her latest post below. She also writes about fashion and other Hoboken topics on a a near daily basis. Here is her take on vegetarian options in Hoboken. Additional photos were provided by TheBoken.com…

I recently decided to become a “Weekday Vegetarian.” I say that very casually, as in sometimes I don’t eat meat from Monday thru Friday, but other weeks I eat meat randomly on a Wednesday just because I’m in the mood to eat meat. Really, there are no rules, but it’s fun to label it.

Eating less meat, especially red meat, has a lot of health benefits if you fill up on fruits and veggies and lean proteins such as nuts and legumes. When eating vegetarian, the main concern is to make sure you’re still getting enough protein since you’re not eating meat!

But what if you’re eating out? You might ask. It’s tough to eat vegetarian when you’re dining out. Lucky for you, I have started a compilation of healthy restaurant and menu options when dining out in Hoboken:

Mamoun’s Hummus

1. Mamoun’s Falafel 

Now stuffed grape leaves may not be exactly a “meal,” but if in a pinch- it’s a great option for a quick vegetarian snack on the go. I happen to love stuffed grape leaves and find them very filling, but you’ll definitely need some protein to go along with them. Try some beans or lentil soup to combine with the grains (rice) and you’ll have a full protein.

Mamoun’s Falafel

I ordered mine with a stuffed spinach roll and shared with a friend. It was very yummy.

Other options besides hummus from Mamoun’s include:

  •  Falafel (a chick pea mixture of onions, parsley, garlic, and spices deep fried),
  •  Tabouleh (a bulgur wheat salad with finely chopped mint, parsley, and onions),
  • Baba Ganouj (Roasted eggplant with parsley, garlic, and tahini).

Dolmati (Stuffed Grape Leaves) from Mamoun’s Falafel

All of these dishes can come as a sandwich, salad plate, or combo. I definitely recommend trying each dish at some point, vegetarian or not – you can’t go wrong!

2. Maoz Vegetarian

While I have never eaten at the Hoboken location, I have heard very good things. After all, any place that serves sweet potato fries is okay in my book. This is a small chain, and it prides itself in serving the vegetarian population.

Some menu highlights include:

  • Egg & Eggplant Sandwich,
  • Maoz Salad Box,
  • Falafel,
  • Maoz Sweet Potato Fries.

Even better – Maoz lists all of the nutritional values on its website (including calories) so you can know the facts before you eat. Check out the stats here.

You can add these vegetarian toppings at Maoz to any sandwich you purchase for some healthy add-ons

3.  The Pita Grill

This Hoboken gem is also a chain, but delicious at that. Their cilantro hummus is exquisite (rivals Trader Joe’s!), and I also love their Greek Salad (with or without chicken). There are tons of vegetarian options, which can be made into non-vegetarian options by just adding chicken or steak.

If going veggie, I’d recommend:

  • Grilled Vegetables and Goat Cheese Panini
  • Grilled Vegetable Athena: (grilled herb marinated zucchini, red and green peppers, sweet onions and eggplant with mesclun greens, feta cheese and dried cranberries – topped with a lite roasted red pepper vinaigrette).


My Regular Sushi Order from Robongi (Yes, it's not totally vegetarian, but it's delicious).

4. Robongi

Craving sushi but want to go animal-free? Robongi is one of my favorite sushi joints in Hoboken for delicious rolls. I usually opt for my regular order of salmon avocado and a sweet potato roll (plus a house salad with ginger dressing), but the salmon can easily be substituted with cucumber or another vegetable (or fruit!) that you want to include. I always opt for brown rice. Also, peanuts or cream cheese can also be added for protein if you’re skipping out on the fish part.

Regardless of where you eat, there are usually at least a few vegetarian options. Some places are more veggie-friendly than others, however. As I delve more into vegetarian eating, I’ll be sure to update you on great spots to get your veggie fill!

Now my question for you - are YOU a Hoboken Vegetarian?

Tweet me your favorite spots/dishes for meat-free dining.
