If you are like us, when you go to a new city and eat out you want to eat out at the best places possible. I am talking hours of scrolling through yelp, Instagram, and food blogs searching for the best of the best wherever it is you find yourself. To save you some time (and data), we have compiled a cheat sheet to the best Eats & Drinks in New Brunswick…
Of course the pizza is good, but what really stands out are their enormous one pound donairs. Pick up one of these messy and delicious East Coast specialities to go and thank me later.

Good sushi is hard to find. Thankfully, there are places like Sense of Tokyo dishing out amazing rolls, good portions, on-point miso soup and perfectly cooked rice. Everything on the menu is great, but try the angry tuna rolls, and salmon teriyaki bento lunch.

Lemongrass delivers good Thai food at a fair price. Stop in on Wine Wednesday’s for a cheaper and bigger glass of house wine, and though it’s a bit of a cliché, try out their chicken Pad-Thai
A good burger is hard to beat, and this one is far and away the best in town. This restaurant is known in Saint John for serving meals with high quality, fresh ingredients, at a more than fair price. Try the Skippy Roo, which combines two fine ingredients: Siracha and peanut butter.

Thandi’s serves up Thai food and Indian food, which normally would be a red flag for a prospective restaurant, but is not the case here. The Chicken Tikka Masala and Lamb Saag are as good as it gets.
Decimal 81 is on the high end for price, but consistently serves up one of the better meals in Saint John. Try their infamous duck with root vegetable fries and don’t skip out on their seasonal desert.

It’s always a little bit difficult to pay up for pasta; after all, you could easily make it yourself. Then you have truly great pasta with homemade sauces and noodles and your mac n’ cheese starts looking pretty pathetic. Italian By Night isn’t especially cheap but has an incredible menu. Try anything on the menu because everything is good.

We’ve knocked off the donair, now it’s time for the lobster roll. Any way you slice it, lobster is going to be expensive. Steamers serves up a lobster roll and fries for $18, which is about the standard in the region, but when this one hits your taste buds, you’ll understand why it’s a deal.

While Port City Royal is known for its cool décor, which includes a velvet Elvis, they are no slouches in the cocktail department. Their Dark and Stormy might be the best you’ll ever have.
If that’s not your style, try out Jungle Jim’s, “The Hurricane,” which features 3 shots and some secret ingredients for $12.99. All aboard! Good times ahead!
Pub Down Under could double as the best deal in town as they serve up massive portions for incredibly cheap prices. Awesome beer menu, good burgers, great pickle spears, and some funky poutine’s; The Pub Down Under is what’s up.

Everyone in Saint John recommends the East Coast Bistro for its great meals featuring local and seasonal ingredients. Like Italian by Night, the whole menu is fantastic, but the oysters and Purple Cabbage and Peanut Salad are a great lead before Steak & Frites.
