Partying in Newark

I'm in Newark, NJ, for a wedding right now (this is actually my second trip to Newark this year). We went out with some friends trolling for a restaurant along Ferry Street, near Penn Station. Ferry is filled with a bunch of lively, moderately pricey Portuguese restaurants that seemed to be doing some brisk business. We ate at a pretty decent, inexpensive Mexican place (Mi Pequeño Mexico) with the kids.

I'm not saying Newark is the next big thing. But I've seen worse.

i'm always intrigued why people eat chinese food in koreatown or, in this case, mexican food among all the portuguese restaurants...

Well, part of it is that the Mexican place looked inexpensive while the Portuguese places didn't. There was also that area of choice theory in which Mexican made perfect sense. Every Portuguese restaurant on the street was named Iberia and they all looked good but rather similar. The Mexican place stood out.
