Eating out or eating in: Close-up on more good food

From the Vegetarian Menu at Wondee's Fine Thai Food and Noodles, 296 Main St. in Hackensack (closed Mondays): Tofu Kratiam or sauteed tofu with garlic, onion and black pepper ($12), garnished with orange slices and fresh cilantro.

Wild Copper River Sockeye Salmon with Basil Pesto, both from Costco Wholesale, served with TraderJoe's Whole Wheat Fusilli Pasta made with sardines and salted cod.

A freshy baked 18-inch Pepperoni Pizza from Costco Wholesale, a bargain at $9.95.

Som Thum, a crunchy salad of fresh green papaya dressed with lemon juice, chili, peanuts, green beans, tomato, and ground dried shrimp, is $8 at Wondee's.

Koong Lard Prig, steamed large shrimp with sweet and sour chili, broccoli and pickled cabbage, is $17 at Wondee's, a BYO with parking in the rear.

A breakfast frittata made with smoked wild salmon, tomato, capers and egg whites, all from Costco Wholesale, and served with sauteed cabbage and mashed sweet potatoes with extra-virgin olive oil.

A midday roll-up snack of smoked wild salmon on thin-sliced, reduced-fat Swiss cheese with organic spring mix, pesto and Dijon mustard, all from Costco Wholesale.

Thome Yum Hedt, a combination mushroom soup, is $3.50 at Wondee's.

Cabbage Delight -- pickled cabbage, ginger, carrot and peppers -- is $3 at Wondee's.

Costco Wholesale's organic brown eggs with Trader Joe's pasta is real comfort food for breakfast. You can't beat the pleasure of eating the yolks broken over the pasta.

My wife found fresh wild-caught porgy for $1.79 a pound at H Mart in Englewood.
