Hopefully you will enjoy my food review of my trip to the Cape!

Hi all,
Just got back yesterday from Antartica, meaning Cape Cod. VERY wet (2 inches just on sunday, heavy duty winds, lighting strikes etc...) and cold ( a toasty warm 49 degrees on tues or wed night. We are in JUNE right?????? Just wondering. Weather didnt stop from doing stuff but was a tad bit of a damper.
But here goes.
Stayed in W Yarmouth on 28 so most dining was in mid cape area.
Sun afternoon- split a sandwich with one of the owners of the motel i stayed ham and turkey combo from TAKI's( on rt 28- greek pizzeria) which was very good.
Sun night- the PADDOCK in Hyannis near the Melody tent. Heard many good things over the years but never have been.
Well everyone was right. The table( all do) had a small veggie platter on it with a spinach dip.
Had the bar-b-q shrimp app( 10$) which was VERY good, almost as good as Emerils in LV.
Main course was the pistachio encrusted halibut which was VERY nice and had a cirus beurre blanc( 20$).
Amstel light on tap, forgot the price.

Mon -HEARTH AND KETTLE for breakast on 132 in Hyannis. I had the french toast and a side of breakfast sausage with coffee 8$ .Hearth and Kettle is VERY reliable for their food.
Took a ride to P-town and got nice pictures( best day of the trip) and got an order of fried clams at the stand right by the boat docks near the Corner of commercial -- sorry forgot the name-12$.
Also stopped at the portugese bakery for the usual sugar fix! LOL!
Dinner- CAPT PARKERS on 28 in W yarmouth. Simply put it is the style of an irish pub. Loud, noisy, and great food! Bowl of clam chowder $4.50 and surf and turf 20$ Had a couple of pina colada's as well.
Parkers also is EXTREMELY reliable and consistently good.

Tuesday Skipped breakast and went to JERRY'S on 28 in w Yarmouth. Place on the outside aint much to look at but have GREAT fried clams. Been stopping in their for the fried clams for years and have never been disappointed. $74 for a LARGE order and a large choc. shake ( those are great too! think it was 3 bucks).
Dinner- Went to ALBERTO'S on main in Hyannis. Was highly recommended as was there years ago. Staff was on the snooty side. Got there right before the sunset dinner expired so opted for that. House salad was very nice garnished with fruit and dried cherries. Chose the seafood alberto. Had loads of fish ( shellfish, and calamari) which were good and the linguine was good, but white wine sauce was VERY bland, NO flavor at ALL.
Desert was the chocolate mousse.Total for the meal was 22$ Also had a Morreti which was 4.00$

Wed. Did a very early breakfast at the PICADILLY DELI on 28 in S Yarmouth. Had the apple cinnamon french toast and a thin slice of ham with coffee for 7$. The french toast was OUTSTANDING.
A late lunch at CAPT PARKERS. Bowl of chowder and a bacon hamburger with a pint of fosters 16$ total.

Dinner- I did a late take out from TIKI PORT on 132 in Hyannis. One of the best chinese in mid cape if not the best. I ordered WAAAAAAY too much, the app special , pint of wonton soup and some lo mein.
Didnt begin to finish it and had the rest for dinner last night.

I left early Thursday and made a stop at Blounts on water st in Great barrington RI ( off of 114) for outlet store for various soups and bisques. I cant wait to try them.
Thats it for the dining report! Thanks for reading!!!
