On my first visit, I ordered the schnitzel I'd been hearing the most about, the Vegetarian. Made with eggplant schnitzel (thin pieces of eggplant breaded and fried), the Vegetarian is served on an Italian baguette spread with house-made parsley tahini and topped with lettuce, tomato, pickles, cucumber and sumac pickled red onions. Even as I placed the order, another customer waiting turned to me and nodding sagely, said "Good choice".... so the bar was set pretty high. And I'm very happy to report all my expectations were met and then some.
All in All
Mordi's is a great and exciting new addition to the food truck scene in Jersey City and even just to the food scene in general. Beyond the schnitzel they're currently offering, Mordi's also has sides including house-made marinated olives and they've been offering fresh, homemade falafel as a recurring special and yesterday, they introduced a schnitzel platter so I'm sure there's plenty more to come. My one complaint is that the baguettes for the sandwiches can be a bit tough and chewy but on the other hand, they hold everything together really well and absorb all the delicious flavors from the sandwich. Other than that, I found the prices pretty reasonable and portions generous and again, everything just seemed really fresh. Both of my sandwiches were excellent and if you haven't been already.....stop waiting. Just go.
Mordi's can be found traveling around Jersey City - they offer lunch and dinner service most weekdays and are at a lot of events around town on the weekends as well. Check their twitter to stay updated.
