Get to Know JC Eater: Charis

Welcome to "Get to Know JC Eater" where, every week, I post a profile of a local resident sharing where and what they love to eat in Jersey City. If you'd like to be featured, please leave a comment below or email mdirectly.

This week's JC Eater is a dumpling aficionado with a bit of a sweet tooth and a love of the views from Jersey City.

What's your name? 

Where in Jersey City do you live? 
Regent St- right opposite the Beer Garden.

Do you have a favorite non-food spot/area in Jersey City? 
Our beautiful waterfront with the iconic view of NY

Do you follow a specific dietary lifestyle? 
Not really. I am trying to incorporate more vegetables in my diet though - I can't live without my meat!

What are your favorite places to eat in your neighborhood?
Dolma - The cute pink box-type building
Abbondaza Trattoria - The pizzas don't disappoint
Marco and Pepe - Perfect brunch spot
Tacqueria Downtown - So inexpensive and so good!
Brownstone Diner - There's something for everyone
Cocoa Bakery - Really delicious sweet treats

What are your favorite places to eat in Jersey City overall?
Miso Ramen - Their ramen is the best I've had - and it's the perfect weather for it right now!
GP's Restaurant - Love the cozy interiors and no-fuss Italian fare
Downtown Yogurt - Right by the PATH so it's a perfect walking-home treat!
Choc o Pain- Great bread, coffee and desserts

What kind of restaurant would you love to see in Jersey City that isn't here already?
A nice sit-down Indian restaurant - the ones in my neighborhood are only suitable for take away. Also a good Chinese restaurant - right now I head to Chinatown each time I need a proper dumpling fix.

Any other info you want to put?
I blog about baking and cooking at @culinarystorm for Instagram/Twitter/Snapchat
