Some quickies from the Cape(with young kids): Best
fried meal at Arnold's on rt.6...light, crispy belly
clams, ditto for the thin onion rings, decent slaw and
clean in and out; nice picnicking area outside. Best
New England Clam Chowder:(only food matter consumed on
entire trip by four year old), The Tavern at Duck
Creek in Wellfleet; bonus of great live Blues on Sun.
nite if kids cooperate. Best view: Adrian's at the
Outreach hotel in P-town; mediocre meal tempered by
the amazing sunset over the bay. Best and most fun of
all: Clem and Ursey's in P-town: A riot of steamed,
fried, baked, stuffed and raw seafood, better than
most smoky ribs, real good fried chicken with homemade
sides like corn pudding and mashed potatoes, atleast 5-
6 soups including my favorite Portuguese Kale and
linguica, a gourmet market and on-site bakery with too
many yummy things to mention and a frozen custard
stand with homemade hot fudge. No, I did not eat ALL
of those items myself, but between eight of us I
sampled most. Oh yeah, GREAT people watching. Best
cheap eats: The trailer at Head of the Meadow Beach in
Truro: delish,fresh cheeseburgers, Linguica roll and
hot dogs; I think there's something about those
squared, toasty rolls on the Cape that make the dogs
taste so darn good. Kids favorite treat: Para dice
(sp?) Hawaiian shaved ice in Truro. Kids can make any
sickening-sweet, stomach turning combo of the
seemingly endless list of syrups(one called Tiger's
Blood was quite popular), available onto a large, soft
mound of ice with option of vanilla i.c. on
bottom.WARNING: Must come prepared with plenty of wet
napkins and direct kids immediately to nearest shower
after consumption.
