Amish Food

CheapEats | Jun 2, 2012 08:49 AM

Just wanted to put my two cents in after my road trip through lancaster and philly. For those looking for the transcendant Amish food experience, there is a reason there isnt too much traffic on the boards about it... In fact I would say that the Dutch country farmer's market in my local town of germantown md and laurel md put the food in the restaurants to shame. The real highlights are the baked goods. Yummy breads and pies are the highlight. Sorry to burst anyones bubble but this is for the good of other chowhounders out there to set expectations. As i said on my yelp reviews, i would say the local fare is more geared towards bland country cooking than lard based soul food. For example most restaurants only had oven baked chicken breast.... pls excuse the typos and grammar. Trying to squeeze this post in from my phone in between carting kids here and there. If locals have a diff in opinion, pls prove me wrong as i am sure we making the trip to dutch wonderland again in the future. All my best.
