Where to Eat in Portland, Maine
By Wendy P. Smith
Recently someone asked me about where to eat in Portland, Maine. The question shouldn’t be where but what are you in the mood for? Portland has become a haven for such a variety of offerings it would be very hard to become bored with where to get coffee or grab a bite to eat. I love how creative locally owned businesses have become, making us want to come back to see what is new on the menu. My favorites list is growing often but I’d like to share a few I think you should check out when in Portland. Here’s a list of where to eat in Portland, Maine
(https://www.rosefoods.me)I probably could do a whole post on my hunt for good bagels in Maine but if I had to go with one in Portland it would be Rose Foods. They offer New York style bagels in a Jewish deli setting. Go on the weekend to enjoy the latkes.
(http://www.bardcoffee.com/)To some Bard Coffee may be like their Central Perk, a place to hang out with friends and enjoy some coffee. You can sit and do some work on your laptop or relax and people watch enjoying the variety of their coffee drinks. They take their craft serious taking part in the latte art throw downs with other local coffee shops. Try the nitro cold brew.
Ten Ten Pié
(http://duckfat.com/) Duckfat has been around for awhile in Portland and for good reason. They have fries fried in duck fat that you can dip in different sauces. Go for the fries and stay for a panini and a milkshake.
Figgys’s Takeout and Catering
Big J’s Chicken Shack
(http://www.bigjschicken.com/) If you love fried chicken you can go to Big J’s Chicken Shack at Thompson’s Point. It’s a great place to grab chicken, sandwiches, fries or salads. If you can’t find seating inside, you can order then enjoy your food with beer at the brewery Bissell Brothers next door.
