Starting this week, I'm going to do my best to research, eat, and write up a post on a new restaurant in the Jersey Shore every Monday! Let's call it the Monday Munchies. So here goes...
Week #1 = The Kitchen Witch in Monmouth Beach, NJ
I've been coming down to the Jersey Shore every summer pretty much my whole life, yet when it comes to eating out here, I am still a little lost. I tend to stick to the tried and true places that I've been frequenting for years, and lose my more adventurous nature that we all know and love in Brooklyn. I guess a few disappointing experiences trying the new "hot spot" (often a 35 min drive away) left me reluctant to venture out. But this summer I've vowed to try some new spots and hopefully find some good ones for my followers!
First stop, My Kitchen Witch Cafe, in Monmouth Beach, NJ. Some foodie friends that I trust recommended I hit this "secret spot" for some good eats, so last Friday I dragged my reluctant friend on a HOT Friday afternoon. I really wish I could say that My Kitchen Witch broke that spell (hah), but unfortunately it wasn't meant to be.
I don't know. Maybe I was just expecting a WOW. Or maybe I didn't order the right stuff. And please realize this review is soley based on one not so great experience. Never the less, My Kitchen Witch did not leave me feeling like I need to jump on my broomstick and return...
On to the next.
