Pix from Sol-Mar


This week, Counter Culture swims into Sol-Mar, a Lisbon-style marisquiera (seafood specialist) in the hardscrabble east side of Newark’s Ironbound. The food proves spectacular, and cheap as hell compared to Manhattan seafood spots. And there’s bunny on the menu, too…

dive into the next page for some pictures of the food found there

Dig the circumference of those squid rings, but beware, the sauce is dull

The fricaseed bunny is another delight, and you probably haven’t eaten so many peas (or is it green bunny turds?) since your mom made you.

Eek! It’s the conger eel
