Four Corners Luncheonette: As newly minted Delmartians, you can find us quickly becoming regulars at our favorite brunch spot. Eggs Benedict are my go to standard because nothing beats a perfectly poached egg. The Luncheonette's Lafayette is a winning new take on the classic featuring house smoked salmon that melds so well with a velvety yolk. But it's the corned beef hash that has us coming back each time. It's simply the best.
Ala Shanghai Chinese New Year: Gung Hay Fat Choy! We rang in the year of the rooster with a FUSSYlittleBLOG blogger feast at Ala Shanghai. The multi-course meal featured a bevy of specialities including Grandma's Bowl, a hot pot of seafood and fish cake; stewed pork shoulder; steamed whole flounder; and my favorite, the jumbo spicy prawns with rice cakes. The best part of whole shrimp is the umami-packed head fat that's reminiscent of lobster. You know the food is going to be great when it's staring at you!
The Sap House at Stone House Farms: Maple weekend is your excuse to shamelessly OD on everything maple. You won't regret taking a road trip to Sharon Springs for the all-you-can-eat maple breakfast for a mere $7. One sip of maple milk will get you hooked and don't be afraid to load up on the maple butter, maple sugar, and maple syrup on both pancakes and waffles. Don't worry, the savory sausage will offset your sugar high.
Unagi Sushi: Be still my heart! Fresh sea urchin is hard to come by and we couldn't believe it was offered as a special at Troy's Unagi Sushi. So briny and creamy, uni is a sweet burst of the ocean!
Oaxaquena Triqui: How can you resist devouring a masterpiece the size of your face! Oaxaquena Triqui is the only local place we've come across that serves huarache. The sandal-shaped masa canvas is smothered with a base of black beans and topped with crema, pico de gallo, queso fresco, lettuce, avocado and our choice of flavor-packed al pastor. A drizzle of the homemade salsa verde amps up the flavors of this "Mexican pizza".
