Sabai - Yeah We All Need Some of What They Got

Enjoy Thai food? What about a tiki-like bar? Have you ever had a kick-ass Mai Tai? I mean one with lots of booze and none of the artificial sweet? What about sno-cones of the adult variety? If you answered yes to any of the above, then get yourself over to Sabai.

We sat at the bar and watched the bartenders work and listened to them jaw about vintage cars (think El Camino). We had a grand time.

The cocktails are heavy on rum, but also offer some fine tasting whiskies as well. We tried the Mai Tai because we were in a tiki bar. And over the top it was. Lots of rum, crushed ice, blue curacao with an orchid garnish. As pretty as the Caribbean sea. I'm sure the Pacific is just as stunning.  Next time I'll be aiming for the sno-cone.

The food was also tasty and reasonably priced. The fried calamari was plentiful and crispy with a lovely fish sauce.

The Basil Chicken with Fried Egg was slightly spicy with peppers, onions, and eggplant. The dish was so big, we took half of it home and enjoyed some wonderful leftovers the next evening.

Great place. Fun atmosphere. Ya gotta go.

Every So Often One Needs Some Nuevo Mexico Restaurante

It's not over-the-top, but Nuevo Mexico Restaurante is quick, fun, and tasty for lunch. The Chicken Enchiladas Verdes with Spanish Rice hit the spot a couple of weeks ago.

As Always - Tasty Offerings from Camden's Dogtown Market

I never get over to Camden's Dogtown Market as often as I would like. The food is delicious and plentiful and the wine is only $10 over the retail price. What a winning combination!

Recently, I enjoyed the Blossom Chicken - yogurt-marinated chicken breast that is panko-crusted and fried and served over a green bean and potato salad. Yummy!

And I could enjoy one of my favorite reds for a very reasonable price.

So, what are you waiting for? If you go on a weeknight, specials make your efforts even more rewarding (if only I could remember what they were or they listed them on Facebook). Don't forget to read the entire menu for a sarcastic quip or two.
