Foursquare Tips

  • Go to Cucharamama and order the tamale with slab bacon. Make your dinner companion have the tamale with duck.
  • Lots of awards for Cucharamama. Maricel Presilla, the chef behind this restaurant, won a James Beard Award in 2012. New Jersey Monthly named it one of the 25 best restaurants in the state in 2011.
  • Skirt steak is amazeballs.
  • Tamal de Pipian Vallecaucano is the best !!!
  • Churrasco is finger-licking good. Chocolate flan and apple crepes for dessert. Yum!
  • Soooooooo good. Not cheap by Hoboken standards but you can tell the money goes into good ingredients. Phenomenal for a nice dinner. (4 of 4 petals via Fondu)
  • Don't sit outside! Air conditioner condensation drips from above and pesky gnats all around. Yuck!
  • Amazing colombian tamale, and the short braised rib is soo tender it slips of bone! Thumbs up!
  • Short rib for the win! Holy Mole good.
  • Don't waste your time making a reservation, they do not honor it and we will have to wait for a table to open up.
  • The braised short rib is a must, but no matter what you get it's probably going to be delicious.
  • By far best restaurant in Hoboken.
  • Great food but line can be long and it's pricey. Brunch is usually less crowded and inexpensive
  • Wood grilled chicken breast...to die for! And the butter n wood oven baked masala flatbread!!
  • Great food. Great drinks.
  • Great place to meet a friend and chat over some tasty tapas and wine. The service at the bar tends to be better than table service. Outside seating in the summer.
  • Bacon slab tamales...bacon slab tamales...bacon slab tamales...
  • Flavors were delicious in every dish. Skirt steak was a little too chewy for me, though. Guarapita de Aragua for a drink (with passion fruit) was delicious (much better than the pineapple one)!
  • Short ribs, shrimp appetizer with the bang bang eggplant and plantain puree. Also do the beef emanates boom
  • Excellent mojitos (both alcoholic and non)
