The Galley in Sullivan, ME

For years I have zoomed by the Galley,just over the Taunton River Bridge on Route One in Sullivan and never stopped. Until last year it was just a take-out window with the usual summer Maine fare--fried seafood, hamburgers, etc. This past year I noticed construction going on and a second floor and a water-view dining room appeared. I still didn't stop until, one day, I saw a sign out front promising "Korean Specialties." My curiosity piqued, earlier this month I did stop and, lo and behold, this is not a bad place. The regular menu is the usual pizza, hamburgers, fried fish, etc., but the special board offered a couple of Korean items (bulgogi and spicy chicken) as well as Shepherd's Pie and a ham dinner. Our group had both the Korean specialties, the Shepherd's pie, a hamburger and a pizza. One of us was ethnically Korean and vouched for the authenticity of the taste (the lady running the place is also of Korean background). Even the American choices were quite well done: pizza crust was freshly made and the burger cooked to order.

The Galley plans to be open year 'round (closed on Mondays). I flag this place for the attention of Chowhounds since, with the exception of the Mexican place in Hancock, authentic ethnic dining Downeast is rare. In my view, worth a visit if you are making the trek between Ellsworth and Machias.
