Dinner at Orale in Jersey City, NJ

Dan and I returned to Jersey City for dinner and decided to go to Orale.  As it was a weekend it was pretty crowded but fortunately we snagged some seats at the bar so we could order right away.  We shared everything and it was all rich and delicious and sinfully bad.  Bone marrow pork belly tacos.  Yup.  That is all.

Esquites (my fav!) - charred corn, crema, citrus, and queso fresco. So so good

Tacos Machin - roasted bone marrow, topped with crispy pork belly and shredded cabbage.  Served with a side of rice and beans, which Dan doused with their green hot sauce, which according to Dan is the best shit ever that they should bottle immediately.  Now, back to the tacos.  SO f-ing amazing.  The fattiness of the bone marrow is compounded with the crispy and slightly fatty pork belly.  The cabbage is a nice way to lighten it up and make you feel a little less bad.  But let's be real, nothing this good can be good for you. There were five tacos total, each served over the empty bone marrow bone.  Plus the rice and beans.  Not bad for $16

Ceviche Peruano - mahi mahi, yellow chile, lime, and plaintain chips.  Nice and thick
