I enjoyed Food Coma TV a ton in season 1, and me and Lanna gave to their Kickstarter. The first episode of season 2 is in Westbrook.
I had a culinary adventure-ish this afternoon and then I will talk about Food Coma TV’s adventure.
I went to the Dancing Elephant and had their superb Keema Mutter (ground lamb dish), I would have loved for this to have a shout out on the show, but so it goes. If you haven’t been yet and enjoy Indian food definitely go. The lunch buffet is good, but ordering fresh for lunch is definitely more delicious.
Then I got snacks at CVS and keys at True Value.
Waiting for me tonight is to try the Boston Cream Cupcake from the amazing and delicious Baker’s Bench on William Clark Drive, given how awesome there stuff has been in the past, expectations are high. Update later in the night.
Then I finally got something beyond a sample at Catbird Creamery (tend to go over after had a big lunch at the Dancing Elephant). Got a Snickerdoodle Ice Cream sandwich with Brown Sugar ice cream. Filling and delicious.
The Catbird Creamery opened the Food Coma TV episode, and I will have to try out a sundae there with Lanna soon, great to have fresh ice cream a few blocks from my house.
Then they went to Potter’s Pub somewhere in Westbrook, the idea of a secret bar is very, very cool. Evidently it is at someone’s house, would love to get an invite sometime.
Then to Don’s Lunch, which I have tried once or twice and was underwhelmed by. I guess I need to give there burgers another try. For me food trucks are amazing things. Like the Grease Trucks of Rutgers, with crazy things like the Fat Cat, a double cheeseburger with fries and sauce in a hoagie roll and other 1000+ calories plus options. And the amazing ethnic food trucks at the University of Pennsylvania, and the just great vending trucks of Philadelphia that to me have some of the best sandwiches in town. And that doesn’t include the insanely great taco trucks of California. Of course, a lot of these are parked, and similar type of food is in little taquileras, with amazing dollar tacos and around $3.50 burritos (that was around 2001 pricing in the Pomona, CA area). The price may have gone up but no by much.
Then Joel went to get tan, which was silly and amusing. The bling fit him.
Finally they ended up at the Frog and Turtle and got some small plates of food, I love the Frog and Turtle, and their poutine, steaks, brunch, etc. I love the Memere on Sundays, 2 poaches eggs with Creton, a french canadian slow cooked pork for $5.50.
A cool episode. The place I miss most in Westbrook is the French Press, was insanely great to get a wonderful soup and sandwich or a Memere or fresh donuts on a Wednesday or Thursday afternoon. So it goes.
What do you love in Westbrook? Also it was cool to see Keith Luke (aka @griffinclubmerv) in the episode.
