Inside This Edition: NJ Food Reviews - Nikko Japanese Restaurant in Whippany, NJ and David's Rumba Cafe in Madison, NJ



NJ Food Review - Nikko in Whippany, NJ - Nikko has been an area favorite for many years and I decided to stop by for dinner.  The staff was warm and friendly and authentically attired.  The place was spotless and the tables were neat and nicely set.   The menu was expansive with everything one would expect from a Japanese restaurant.

I went with the Beef Teriyaki which came with rice, veggies, soup and salad for under 20 dollars which for Morris County represents a good value.  I chose a ginger dressing for my salad which was refreshing.  The beef was perfectly cooked, tender and tasty.  I wasn't wild about the soup but the entire meal was very fresh and filling but not overly so.

My guest had the Shrimp Tempura and it was remarked as delicious.  Sushi lovers can enjoy the bar with all of the traditional favorites.  The salad was noted as being very fresh.  Nikko has been an area mainstay for years and it's easy to see why because it offers a quality product, warm atmosphere and pleasant service. - Jersey Shadow -

NJ Food Review - David's Rumba Cafe in Madison, NJ - Authentic food from El Salvador in Morris County?  Yes, at David's...  It's nice to see little restaurants hang in there and survive and David's has been around a while now.  Set in a house on a side street just off Main sits David's with its festive outdoor lights.

Inside, some pleasant Latin music was playing in a cozy dining room.  I look forward to chips and salsa arriving at the table when eating Latin food and was disappointed that none were offered.  I chose the Fiesta Chicken which was fried then covered in a Green Chile sauce with yellow rice.  It was tasty while not being overly spicy.

My guest had the Nachos which were found to be very fresh, traditional and tasty.  Overall the experience was a good one, but not outstanding.  The prices were good and the service was friendly.  It's probably a mistake not to offer fresh chips and salsa to customers while waiting for their food to be prepared.   Diners will make the determination on that one, but I'll check out David's again when in the area. - Jersey Shadow -
