Food photos from Woodbridge to the West Side of Manhattan

Lactose Free Milk at Wegmans Food Market is 10 cents more than at ShopRite.
Wegmans has one of the lowest prices on bananas, but doesn't beat Costco Wholesale.
At nearly 140,000 square feet, Wegmans in Woodbridge seems to go on and on.
Wegmans offers enough prepared food to feed an army. 

Fresh, wild-caught fish fetch some of the highest prices around.
Wegmans Organic Chicken. Drumsticks are $2.99 a pound.
Canned vegetables are 49 cents each.

Premium blended orange juice is only $1.99 for a 64-ounce half-gallon.
Wegmans cheese, dried fruit and nuts would make a great dessert.

Dishes offered at the Whole Foods Market in Manhattan's Time Warner Center.
At a Gourmet Garage near Lincoln Center, Chilean Sea Bass is $28.99 a pound.
Despite the price, Golden Pineapples sold out, but the sign stayed behind.
Gourmet Garage charges $4.99 for 5 ounces of Earthbound Farm Spring Mix. At Costco Wholesale in Hackensack, customers get a 16-ounce package for the same price.
A new dish at So Gong Dong in Palisades Park is Vegetable Bibimbap served on a stone plate. Season to taste with Korean red-pepper paste or gochujang from a squeeze bottle.
Steam rising from the signature soft-tofu stew, which comes with a stone bowl of white rice. All entrees are served with four side dishes, including two kimchis.
At So Gong Dong, bibimbap also comes with ground beef or with squid, but other restaurants serve the dish topped with a raw or fried egg.

The Palisades Park ShopRite is the only supermarket I know with a big tropical-fish tank.
