Ask anyone from Vailsburg, North Newark, Irvington or anywhere in
Essex County, New Jersey, if there is a such a hot dog and they will
probably say yes, there is at Jimmy Buff's.
Having eaten at Jimmy Buff's for years in Irvington I
was introduced to this New Jersey treasure by my Father who grew up on
South Orange Avenue in Vailsburg - Newark, NJ in the 1930's, 1940's
and early 1950's before he went into the Marines, then onto
college. Through his life he always remembered that magic hot dog special to him and so many.
Over 65 years later, in failing health and having no
appetite in his hospital room, our family and his doctors tried
desperately to get him to eat. My brother-in-law stopped at Jimmy
Buff's and bought him that magic hot dog. It was amazing to
see him devour it as if being transported back to that earlier
time in his
His childhood was difficult and rough, but that magic
hot dog was something to be enjoyed and savored, and he did with
every bite much to the shock of everyone. We never thought that magic
hot dog would bring nourishment to his failing body, but it did.
Yes, I know it's not health food, but it's food and it
Jimmy Buff's is legendary, and there is one in East
Hanover, NJ. That very special hot dog is still available these days even in
Morris County. I'm quite sure there are many people from
Newark, Vailsburg and surrounding areas up here in Morris County delighted
that Jimmy Buff's is here. It's nice to see more people being
introduced to the magic of Jimmy Buff's. Who would have ever
imagined that some pizza bread, hot dogs, potatoes, onions, mustard and ketchup
prepared their original way could last these many years.
I for one hope the magic continues and it would be quite
see Jimmy Buff's turn 100 years old someday. It
could really happen!

Cuisine - Thai meals always seem to be experiences where I'm
efficiently taken care of. This can be a good thing or a
bad thing depending on mood and dining experience
Nine Thai is definitely one of the most efficient
restaurants I've ever dined at, but it is too efficient?
The place was nice and all the usual Thai dining
selections were on the extensive menu. I went with the
Chicken Satay (skewered grilled chicken with peanut
dipping sauce) to start and Hot Pepper Beef for the main
course. The appetizer was plentiful and delicious as was
my entree. My Beef was spicy, but they held back a little
which was okay.
My guest ordered the Shrimp Curry, a green curry, said
to be a bit more spicy, but ended up being rather mild.
It was, however, very
The one thing about overly efficient service is that it
can lead a diner to feel too fussed over and many diners
don't feel at ease with hovering staff. Having eaten at
many Thai restaurants, I knew what I was in for, but
perhaps a more laid back but still efficient approach at
Nine Thai might help get more people through the door
and coming back.
Nine Thai is a solid performer with good food and
extremely attentive service. Although, probably not the
best selection for a first date; it's a great idea for
diners who want an awesome meal without having to wait
long for it to arrive after ordering. - Jersey Shadow -
