A couple of weekends ago spent Saturday night in Portsmouth, NH. Lunch at British Beer Company simply because it was convenient - as usual at this place, portions were huge. Had just an ok dinner at Green Elephant (sister to the Portland, ME location). The roti canai, though tasty, was flakier than other versions we’ve had. They need to provide a larger portion of the curry dipping sauce. B’s green curry was just a notch better than an everyday Thai take-out joint. Way too sweet, a bit soupier than expected, and not enough veggies/tofu to justify the $13 price tag. My green tea noodle miso soup was more successful, though it wasn’t the most picturesque bowl. The pieces of soy protein looked rather wan but it tasted better than it looked.
Before we left the area, we stopped by Kittery to get our Anju fix but there was clearly something wrong - the staff and customers of Anju and the rest of the block were all standing outside. Power outage or fire alarm? So, we skipped that and on our way home, we finally tried Little Big Diner since it was on the late side (2 pm) and I know it’s not the most kid-friendly spot due to its tight quarters. Wow. My shiitake miso veggie ramen was superb and B declared his pork ramen to be even better than Anju. Both were unami bombs. King oyster mushroom buns to start were excellent as well. We hope to make this a semi-regular stop.
