Portland decent bar with TV's

We have had good food and vibes at East Ender on several visits. Yes, the bar is cozy. This spot, next to crazy Duck Fat, always flies under the radar...

Looking to rent a private home for a 100-150 people wedding. Northern New England.

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!

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!

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...

The Great Banh Mi Search

Tue, 10 Oct 2017 12:42:36 GMT

I had to dip down into southern New England due to a recent meeting. I found An Nam Vietnamese Grill on East Main Street in Marlborough MA near the Ocean State Job Lots plaza. Check hours before visiting. On Sunday they did not open until noon and are closed on Tuesdays. I was hungry for lunch and planned on taking the cold cuts banh mi home for dinner. It's mostly a take out place but has a few tables where I could enjoy the Five Spice chicken rice bowl and some Vietnamese iced coffee. Everything about the rice bowl was wonderful. It came with a side of something liquid that seems to contain some fish sauce and maybe rice vinegar. The chicken, rice, vegetables and lettuce seemed to be in good proportion to each other. Dressing was a lightly spiced mayonnaise type just dribbled on. The menu says the cold cut banh mi is head cheese, sausage and ham. I thought the sausage might be the pate that was smeared on one side of the roll. The roll was slightly skinnier than I've had before but very light with flakey crust. I said no jalapenos which might have been a mistake. The julienned carrot and daikon were only slightly pickled as was the slice of cucumber. Very delicious. It appears to be a newly opened place. Very good website photos make me hungry for more.

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!

Patrick's Pub in Gilford, NH

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 16:20:28 GMT

Had an enjoyable night out with a friend. As usual this is always my go to place, atmosphere is great (on any night) and the food is always yummy at a reasonable price. Would always recommend this as a "gotta go to place"!

Rockport Camden area

Sun, 10 Sep 2017 13:51:57 GMT

We had a lousy first encounter at 18 Central in Rockport, but some quick background first. We had made our reservation a week prior. No problem. We showed up for our reservation to a half empty restaurant, except for one of the outdoor decks and the uncomfortable front of the house right at the entranceway. We were excited to try the place after some of the hype we had heard. So there we were at the reservation desk and the hostess looks up our name and points to a corner table for two near the front window. The 'boonies', really. Anyway, we look it over and notice two very large dogs sitting alongside. The owners oblivious. You would have had to step over them to get to our seats. Nope, I complained and asked for another table. The hostess then pointed out a table right next to her station, where entrants would be coming by in very close quarters. The worst table in the house. We asked if we could go to the bar, and the hostess told us no. The bar was close to empty. Another table, maybe: No, they were all spoken for. We left disappointed. Terrible floor management... We did not suffer long, though. We ended up in the Tavern Room at Primo, a brief wait and it turned out terrific!

Thoughts on these Ogunquit places?

Tue, 05 Sep 2017 13:59:50 GMT

I've had fairly good luck there but wasn't big on MC Perkins Cove. I'd go back to every place I went (except the lobster pound in York, well not for a lobster roll at least). But there were at least 4 places that sounded good that we didn't get to. How ya been?

Good eats - Ludlow/Okemo Area

Sun, 03 Sep 2017 18:20:38 GMT

I recommend the homestyle hostel. It's been about a year since I was there, but we had fantastic cocktails and a very good dinner.
