North Conway?

Fri, 20 Apr 2018 18:42:36 GMT

I've been to only two of the places listed. Moat Mountain brews their own beer. Your friend will find a good IPA there. They have clever sayings and slogans on their beer cans. Peaches is a delightful, popular place for breakfast or lunch. I would recommend both places. Also, Flatbread Company in the Eastern Slope Inn is good for Pizza and interesting environment. You can watch them sliding the pizzas into the big oven.

St. Albans... Soft and Cuddly

Wed, 18 Apr 2018 18:59:03 GMT

Just had my first taste of St. Albans, a soft spreadable cow milk cheese from Vermont Creamery. Modeled after St. Marcellin, is is aged 11 days(!) and packed in a small 3oz. crockery bowl that can be used to heat it for fondue. We ate it fresh on crackers and bread so fast, fondue was never thought of. Expensive but luxurious.

Maine wedding venue

Wed, 11 Apr 2018 21:45:56 GMT

Ideally I would like a place that would be just the wedding for the weekend. Mid Maine or Southern Maine would be best as I am trying to keep it within 2-2.5 hours travel.

15 people for Mother's Day Dinner in Portland, ME

Fri, 16 Mar 2018 18:40:29 GMT

The OP was in April 2015. Portland ME is a great chow city. I haven't been recently, but I bet there are new places to investigate and enjoy now almost 3 years later.

The Great Banh Mi Search

Thu, 15 Feb 2018 14:15:01 GMT

Well, this has become my bahn mi journal and list of places yet to be tried. Yesterday I made it to Saigon Sandwich, Main Street in Nashua NH. Very yummy cold cut banh mi. I thought the pate might have been house made. The friendly and cheerful woman at the counter might have told me if I had asked. She explained how to get to the parking lot behind the building (from side street). I also got a "bun" lemongrass chicken take-out for home. It's just a tiny place but I would love to be able to eat thru their menu. Roll is very flaky and crusty but soft inside. I thought the carrot and daikon could have been more pickled but that's a personal taste. Also, at $4 the sandwich is a bargain. According to the Facebook post by Bon Vivant, Gourmet Street Food Truck in Marlborough, NH, they are opening a restaurant in Keene NH called Pho Keene Great. I'm not sure they will have banh mi sandwiches since all the photos are pho and rice bowls and I can't remember what I ate when I visited their food truck last summer.

Portland decent bar with TV's

Thu, 25 Jan 2018 23:00:35 GMT

My bad. Got my distilleries confused (they're spreading like weeds). The one I was thinking of is down the street from Hardshore. I was thinking Maine Craft Distilling. Anyway, you were hanging at grounds zero for the hottest, newest food/drink section of town.

I know it was a few years ago you got married but i just stumbled across this and it sounds like I wrote it! Did you ever find what you were looking for? Can you help a newly engaged couple looking for the same exact thing?! Thanks!

Panda North (Brattleboro, VT) Style Chinese Cooking

Sun, 07 Jan 2018 18:45:22 GMT

I am a Vermonter who has lived out of state for the past 10 years and rarely get to Bratt and to my beloved Panda North. For years I've been searching for a comparable Crispy Honey Sesame Chicken recipe and wanted to check here to see if anyone had something similar. Thanks!

"Polynesian" style Chinese restaurants

Corn starch. Baking soda isn't a thickener!

Where could I track down a vintage Carbur's menu?

Sat, 30 Dec 2017 16:21:48 GMT

Hi, i know this is an old post, but if you were willing, would you email Carbur’s Canandian Cheese Soup recipe? I was fortunate enough to have lived in Burlington from 77-85 and Carbur’s was a highlight! My email is Thank you in advance.

In Manchester, N.H. there is a Saigon grocery store that sells it. Most people think it's Chinese candy when in fact it is a product of Vietnam and is called, Sesame and peanut soft candy. I no longer live in the New England area but my relatives ship it to Hope this helps you. My suggestion other than what I have already said, is to look for an Asian market. preferably Vietnamese, in your area and ask them when to purchase it.

Zenbarn -- One of the best meals I've had in the Stowe/Waterbury area

Sat, 09 Dec 2017 11:52:14 GMT

Thanks a lot for posting about this. I thought this was a good review as well from 7Days: If you ever find yourself in Burlington, a place with a similar vibe that you might like is ArtsRiot (400 Pine Street). Also a place that does not get much notice/hype, but is quite excellent.

Where to eat in Portsmouth, NH?

Tue, 05 Dec 2017 17:05:38 GMT

December 2017: just had a late breakfast at The Friendly Toast based on suggestions here. Fun food—cheese grits were excellent. From previous visits, we can recommend the Portsmouth Brewery for good bar food. Thanks, fellow hounds!

Concord NH Sandwich Depot closing

I was told by a very frequent customer that the owners had several calls about buying the business so you are probably right. Hope so.

Portland Me trip in September

Tue, 24 Oct 2017 21:37:22 GMT

I had one of the best uni dishes ever at Miyake, as well as the best Duck tataki I've ever eaten. It doesn't get as much love as it should in Portland's excellent dining scene.

I'll be traveling for work to Houlton, Presque Isle and Fort Kent, Maine. Are there any gems up there? I hope I can find the Rib Truck...

UNH Alums, et al---Karl's, Catnip Pub, Tin Palace--Durham NH?

Mon, 25 Sep 2017 21:21:02 GMT

I just discovered this thread and it was fun as I had just been thinking about all places I used to go while at UNH and was having trouble remembering them all. I was a student from 1978-1982. Grew up in Dover. Lived in Williamson, Stoke, Randall and at home. I remember the hop skip and go naked drink! One was great and two could be a problem, especially getting up those stairs. It says in this thread that the establishment was called the Cat Nip and that sounds right. It was one of two places, the other might have been Nicks, that were side by side located roughly where Mike Libby's is now. We always went to the downstairs part of the Cat Nip. There was another basement place under Town and Campus where we went but I can't remember the name. I used to work at T and C for Jess G from 1979-1983. Of course the Mub Pub Club was great for live bands, I did not go to the DJ Rick Bean nights which was more disco as I was more of a rock/post punk/new wave person. Someone mentioned the Franklin Theatre which was converted to a night club but I it was not disco as stated. The music was the post punk/new wave variety of dance music played by a DJ accompanied by the corresponding MTV videos - stuff like Billy Idol, Go Gos, Motels, etc. Lots of fun while it lasted. Being a Dover girl and living there during summers and my Senior Year, of course we also frequented the more townie places like the Spartan Lounge at Central Ave and the Norseman Lounge at Dover Bowl up on the Miracle Mile section of Central. Both featured live music and dancing which was a priority for my group. We also went over to the Meadowbrook Lounge at the Portsmouth Traffic circle for live music and dancing as well as to the Riverside Club in Portsmouth, more of a punk/new wave scene, it was in the what is now the basement part of the Portsmouth Brewery and the door was in back of the building. Funny how not one of these places is there anymore. Durham has changed so much. Young's is still good, ate their recently. Wildcat moved to around the corner on Madbury Road. I was interested in hearing how one of the posters in this thread felt the Caravan Bus service ruined the town. I know I relied on this to get around, its hard to be against public transit, lol. Also interested to hear the comment about that bad spot on 155 near Madbury metals. I was a passenger injured in a major accident there in 1978 during my senior year at DHS because of that bad turn in the road. I believe they fixed the road finally after my incident. Glad I lived to go on to UNH and enjoy all these places. Its fun to take a trip down memory lane!
