Ha, ha! Take that, tags.
Anyways, just checking in and drumming up traffic and having a look around.
Last weekend, we had a bunch of excellent food up in Portland. Some dumplings at Bao Bao- particularly liked the smoked hake. A great dinner at East Ender- the duck with squash and a whole grain entree and the hake cakes were standouts. Suffering from a cold, I limited myself to mocktails and was impressed with the preggertini menu.
Excellent coffee at both Bard (although we were disappointed that hand pies from Little Bigs are only available Fri/Sat, having been led to believe they’d be there from a CH thread which I was unable to fact-check because I was unable to find- no, I’m not bitter) and Speckled Axe.
Great sandwiches from Blue Rooster, as always, and indulgent tater tots. Great gelato from Gorgeous Gelato- if you need a break from gelato or need something that travels, try the Renata cake.
Went back to East Ender for lunch on the way out of town and this was our only mild disappointment- I felt their burgers were only so-so, and the grilled cheese we ordered for our little ones was not even melted and at $9 a bit of a miss. Onion rings, which had looked fabulous traveling to other tables at night, were quite greasy.
Overall, as a Camberville resident, I continue to be amazed by the amount of good eating in Portland.
