Have you ever heard of a “toad in a hole”? me neither. per little donkey in cambridge, miso banana bread hollowed (to make a hole?) and filled with an over easy egg (toad?), served with a good ol’ breakfast sausage and sautéed spinach. the egg and banana bread combo seemed a little unorthodox but needless to say i️ was pleasantly surprised. this recommendation was courtesy of our charming bartender vivi - excellent saleswoman, better company and a fabulous menu guide... given our tendency to reaching over each others plates to steal a bite or 5, we quickly learned you can’t really go wrong with anything on the menu (which changes daily, might i️ add). not pictured: the best brioche french toast i’ve ever tasted.
Could mabel's lobster claw be more new england? mabels, located in the small quiet coastal town of kennebunkport, me is surrounded by gorgeous beaches and a quaint seaside village. this early lunch was traditional. classic lobster roll with fries, slaw, and a spicy bloody to wash it down. thanks to a long time friend, we were able to sit down with her father/ head chef/ owner to talk about the family business. in fact, @georgehwbush1924 came in for dinner with barbara and friends later that night. can't wait for our next salty seaside getaway 🙌🏼 🌊 🐟
You've tried mashed potatoes and you've tried donuts, but have you tried potato donuts? i hate donuts... but these were greasey, sugary, fried maine potato perfection. the flavor assortment at the holy donut was intriguing with flavors like chai and cannoli, but we really believed the hype as soon as we tried the maple bacon donut 😵 yes it was as good as it sounds (eyes closed, "mmmm"ing) especially paired with a hot cuppa.
Our first post as official foodstagrammers! we are currently stuck in stop and go traffic on our way back to boston from portland, maine after totally gorging ourselves with amazing food all weekend. we had what we call a "foodcation" after hearing about all the great things(food) portland had to offer. although the biggest draw was maine's seafood scene, we set out sans-agenda and tried a plethora of equally delicious spots all recommended by locals. . . .
central provisions is a small-plate style restaurant with a wide array of choices ranging from bluefish crudo to lobster polenta. pictured above is their caramelized sheep cheese with bosc pears, quince saba (a rich, balsamic-esque grape-based glaze) and piment d'espelette (french peppers). reminded us of a buttery croissant with jam and brie with a satisfying crunch. . . . . #food#foodsta#foodstagram#foodporn#yummy#portlandeats#eats#delicious#sweetandsavory#would#croissant#renewableenergy#genh#titleinsurance#cheese#balsamic#pibeatz
