I’ve been visiting this Japanese restaurant for over ten years, mostly for sit-down lunches but lately for their take-out only service. It really is a great place for lunch or dinner. The service is typically fast.
Their lunch specials are very reasonable. You can choose from a selection of their combination lunch boxes (served with soup, salad, edamame, vegetable, and california roll or rice), Sushi and Sashimi lunch specials served with soup, Combination of 2 or 3 rolls (served with soup), or Sansai Udon Set (Soup with salad and california roll).
Be careful in their parking lot because it is tight and there is a lot of traffic especially during the lunchtime rush.
The inside ambiance is nice and relaxing once you sit down. The fact that it’s a BYO restaurant is also easy on the wallet. I’m a big fan of their hot green tea. For a treat, be sure to order their red bean or green tea ice cream!
Moshi Moshi is kid-friendly so be sure to ask their staff for the beginner rubber-band-powered chop-sticks.
They seem to specialize in their avocado based sushi rolls, such as the Saddle River Roll, Mexican Roll and Green River Roll.
So, if you’re out and about in Bergen county, call them up and place an order, most likely it will be ready in 20 minutes or less.
If you are hosting a small event, be sure to check out their party tray menus.
What is Moshi Moshi?

This new “bagel-deli” builds on the experience of it’s older brother, Bagel Brothers Deli in Saddle Brook, NJ. Their bagels are fresh even in the afternoon. And their Green Mountain coffee system is on spec (I enjoy their Breakfast Blend). The coffee is made fresh and will never be served burnt as it is kept in a thermos.
But Bagel Bros 2 is more than bagels for breakfast and lunch.
Grab a breakfast sandwich or breakfast wrap. They have everything for your whole crew.
And, they have an extensive lunch menu featuring cold sandwiches and subs with quality Boars Head deli meats. If you would like a hot sandwich for lunch their menu features 12 to choose from – and don’t forget the fries! If you want comfort food, they have a few grilled cheese sandwiches to order.
“Great bagel store, they make great sandwiches and pancakes too, plenty of parking spots, friendly staff …. very clean.”
Stop in and get a Brown Derby, a Danish, Pecan Meltaway Ring or the famous crumb cake.
Address: 614 Main Street, Hackensack, NJ 07601
Telephone: (201)342-5577 or (201)342-5383
Parking: Street parking or use the Target parking lot
Tuesday – Saturday 6:30 AM to 6 PM

Get the Crumb Cake!
For the real B & W Bakery crumb cake experience, you either have to go to the store to pick it up at the store. Or attend an event where a friend, co-worker or family member surprised everyone with the melt in your mouth crumb cake. They are best eaten with with a glass of either coffee or milk.
It is not uncommon during the holiday seasons to have a line of 100 people waiting to purchase this 9″ x 7″ piece of deliciousness. And of the thousands of people who buy it, 4 of them will say that they made it themselves 🙂
You can order the crumb cake for nationwide delivery on Goldbelly for about $40. But beware, crumb cakes do not tend to travel well. They are about $8 in store and will last about 2+ days if kept in airtight wrapping.
Linzers, Dinner Rolls, Cookies and Danishes are also favorites. There was talk that they changed their crumb cake recipe 2016-2018 but in 2019 it seems like they are back to the old recipe and the fans have returned.
Who are B & W? The original owners, Boehringer & Weimer (B & W), that’s who!
The new Paramus Grocery Store, Stew Leonard’s, is a great place for the family to shop. But it’s not for everyone. The store is laid out in a one-way single winding aisle that as of now, isn’t clearly marked and if you try to navigate the aisle the wrong direction, it will be difficult for you and your oncoming traffic. The main trick is when you enter from the main entrance (not the mall entrance), head towards the bakery section to your right.
This place is great for gearing up for parties and it should be a weekly destination for your food and drink needs. There are many store made dips, cheeses and appetizers that will make hosting a party easy.
Two main things to consider about this store:
Don’t treat Stew’s like a convenience store as, again, the store is laid out in a single path design, although there are cut-throughs scattered about.
Stew’s is not for people that are annoyed by animatronic singing animals and fruit.
Other than that, stop here for your staples, hit up Stew’s before your next party as there are flavorful prepared foods ready for you to heat up, grill or cook. You’ll need to go somewhere else for your cleaning supplies, kitchen items, light bulbs and drug store items. But again, you can grab your food and drink staples here and be sure to check out their weekly specials.
I really appreciate the way that the fresh herbs are displayed. In other grocery stores, the herbs are in small, plastic, containers that are of questionable freshness. At Stew’s, you can grab what you need for your dish.
Great For Kids
They say that Stew Leonard’s is the Disneyland of Dairy Stores with the animatronic sounds and the relatively short shopping experience for the kids (10-30 minutes). They have a Magic Barn Door app (Apple App Store / Google Play Store) where you can interact with signs around the store. So, Stew’s is a fun place for kids, even my teenager was taking some Instagram photos there.
The latest flagship ShopRite is located about a mile away from the old New Milford location and bears striking resemblance to the Wyckoff store.
The Food Court
If you are like me and did not pre-plan your trip in advance, grab a circular and some food from many of the the mini restaurants and relax in the food court. You will save money if you take a minute to see what is on sale. People also make less impulse buys when they shop with a full stomach. #smartshopping #savemoney
You enter into a small food court with a cafe, Mediterranean bar (8.49/ lb). Unlike their other new location in Wyckoff, this location has a salad and soup bar! (Also at $8.49/lb). And for the easy grab and go, there are a lot of pre-packaged meals. Their hot grill has breakfast sandwiches as well as burgers, cheesesteaks and chicken hot sandwiches at reasonable prices.
The deli offers standard fare but a nice display with friendly staff. To save you a lot of time, there is a nice section of pre-cut deli selections if you are not too particular with your deli order.
The produce displays the standard produce selections. There is a “certified organic” island that is clearly marked – if that’s your thing.
Also note, for young shoppers, there is a display as you enter the store near the produce section (see above “Free Food” photo) with free healthy fruits for kids to take while you shop. So take some wipes and napkins with you to help keep the little fingers clean.
The bakery is very well appointed with breads, cookies and cakes. You will wonder on how the artfully decorated cakes sport price tags under $10. This will be your go-to place for desserts!
Seafood and Butcher
The seafood department also has a fresh sushi section and while the lobster tank is in the back, there is a nice clam washing shower in the front of the seafood department. Ask the happy butcher about the dry aging process – I learned something new today!
Remainder of Store
If you are into organic food, note that there is an organic aisle just near the produce section – and there is a refrigerated area there with the organic milks and dairy.
The grocer aisles are cavernous – this is not a store you run in and run out of for a few items. What I did find nice was that the refrigerated sections all had doors on the cases which made the section warmer than what you would find in other stores.
Please consider their Wholesome Pantry offerings which claim to be without artificial flavors, colorings, and unnatural preservatives. There are regular Wholesome Pantry and organic Wholesome Pantry options.
The are an abundance of registers with plenty of express lanes and staffed registers. But, if you’d like to check yourself out you’ll find the “self check-out” lanes on the left side of the register bank.
Florist: Get some fresh flowers for a friend, yourself or you sweetie at the florist located by the store entrance.
Dieticians Nook: As you enter the store, you will see the Dietitians Nook on your right. This contains a little display conveniently stocked with a recipe card and ingredients to make a healthy meal. I like this idea as it reminds me of those boxed delivery services like Blue Apron. So, stop by and give it a try.
