Down at Palisades Park

Now this is a piece of artwork. It's sculpture at its best in the form of cream cheese, sugar, eggs, and all those other scrumptious ingredients. There's nothing like authentic New York cheesecake.

If you're lucky to be in north Jersey, be sure to stop by the Golden Eagle Diner in Palisades Park at 239 Broad Avenue at Brinkerhoff Avenue. Their menu is loaded with tasty-good treats, and they have the BEST Greek dishes. Take the Broad Avenue exit off of Route 46.

Check out the escarole soup with homemade meatballs. Are you getting hungry yet? Wait. It gets better.

The homemade mousaka is to die for at the Golden Eagle Diner. Pardon the picture. I didn't have my good camera with the macro lens.

Strawberry shortcake is calling my name. Now I'm kicking myself in the butt because I didn't get a piece of cake to go.

There's something about New Jersey diners. They know what they're doing when it comes to diners. Look at the audacious, silver bling on the outside of this building. It's classic Jersey. It makes me want to move back.

One last observation: The gas in New Jersey is 22 cents less than it is in northeast Pennsylvania.

Yummy!!! I love moussaka...its my favorite. I am Greek and I I make it whenever I can, but it is very time consuming. New york Cheesecake is the best. I don't get up to New Jersey too often but when I do I always eat in one of those amazing Greek diners! :-)
