The best reason to visit Oak Tree Road in Edison and Iselin is to gorge at one of the many Indian restaurants lining the street.
With several varieties of cuisines, Indian restaurants on Oak Tree Road panders to all Indians, be they from the South, North, East or West.
Alas, a lot of Oak Tree Road restaurants also specialize in figuratively waterboarding their clientele with disgusting food and awful service.
I suspect way too many Oak Tree Rd Indian restaurateurs are secret fans of Dick Cheney.
Chaat, Dum Biryani, Masala Dosa, Palak Paneer, Tandoori Chicken, Chicken Manchurian, Lamb Biryani, Gujarati Thali, oh, the choices are truly endless at Oak Tree Road Indian restaurants.
If you have a sweet tooth, there are a bunch of mithai shops like Jassi Sweets, Raj Bhog and Mithaas where you can indulge till you belch.
Come weekends, you can see Indians getting down from their BMW, Lexus, Toyota Camry and Honda Accord cars to feast at the Indian restaurants on Oak Tree Road.
Edison may have been named after the famous inventor Thomas Alva Edison but today the New Jersey city's sole claim to fame is Oak Tree Road and the Indian restaurants dotting the landscape.
