Where They Eat: The Embracers at Singapore Noodles

This weekend The Embracers will find themselves slotted somewhere amongst the likes of Blondie, Toad the Wet Sprocket, the Smithereens, Ed Kowalczyk and Nicole Atkins (courtesy of UC Musicfest). But unlike those artists, who have already met with their stardom and probably on the downside of their career pendulum, the Embracers are still on the way up. With just an EP and recently released full length to their name, The Embracers have still performed in over twenty states, put on a hundred plus shows and jammed to full capacity crowds all along the eastern seaboard. It is obvious that their style of  modern welded classic rock, which runs the gamut from watch a blue screen and chill music to uptempo party jams, hooks those who hear it. The Embracers debut album, Look What I Stole for Us Baby, was recorded in the band’s own studio in Fords, New Jersey and incorporates a number of unique instruments including the vibraphone, marimba, timpani and my personal favorite, the African clay voodoo drum. Now that’s Rock and Roll at its finest.

When the band steps away from pushing the musical envelope in order to eat, they oftentimes find themselves at Avenue East a Japanese/Asian restaurant in Cranford, New Jersey. According to Mike (D’Amico), the dish of choice is the Singapore Noodles. Those dollops of Asian goodness are 8.95 and include mei-fun, sprouts, red pepper, chicken, shrimp, scallions and eggs in a curry flavor. It is both “plentiful and delicious.”

My kitchen reeks of noodles and “Something You Don’t Understand.”

    They do have a unique sound and I think there is the possibility the group will make the big time. The group has excellent taste in Asian food and the restaurant looks welcoming. I hope you have a great day. Blessings…Mary
