About the Author
The "South Jersey Foodie" is Nicole Pellegrini, sometimes known as sockii. She enjoys life as a writer, artist, webmaster, crafter and avid food-lover living in some of the last vestiges of active farmland in Gloucester County, New Jersey. She shares her home with her partner David, a podiatrist in Woodbury NJ and their six cats: Peanut, Norman, Sammo, Mischief, George and Benny.
I believe in enjoying life - and that includes enjoying as many different kinds and styles of food as possible. I am an omnivore with a personal passion for small, sustainable, ethical farming and natural foods. I have little patience for the "Food Police" or those who advocate that one dietary plan is the only "right" one for everyone. Find your personal balance and conscience; make food a joy in your life - that's my motto.

It’s been many years since I’ve been to the Galleria at Crystal Run in Middletown, New York – and much longer since I’ve eaten anywhere in the vicinity beyond one of the large national chains that dominate the area. So it was with both excitement and some trepidation that a dining companion and I recently stumbled upon Fuji Japanese Steakhouse and Sushi Bar at the Galleria while doing some post-Christmas sale shopping. Hunger won out over any wariness we might have about eating sushi in the area, so we decided to give it a try. By the end of the meal we were quite happy we had, as it ended up being a very nice lunch experience overall.
I’ve praised Eastern Garden Restaurant highly in the past, but I swear I fall more in love with this wonderful Japanese/Chinese restaurant every time I get the chance to visit them again. Who would have thought that my favorite sushi place would end up being in a strip mall in Sussex, New Jersey? But these guys really know what they’re doing, and not just with the sushi.
