Rehoboth Beach Report
Here are some highlights and updates from our recent trip to Rehoboth.
On the trip down we stopped at the Milford Diner for their amazing coconut custard pie and some giant chocolate meringue pie (more of a chocolate cream pie). They had signs up they are now 24-hour.
The fried chicken platter, fish sandwich, fries, coleslaw and birch beer from Gus & Gus were the usual summer classics. They said, “the chicken will take 10 minutes, we’re making up a fresh batch, can you wait?” I said, “We’ve waited all year for your fried chicken, we can wait 10 more minutes!”
Take-out lunch from Greenman took a long time (40 minutes) but was totally worth it. The Love Potion and watermelon-canteloupe juices were fabulous and refreshing, the iced coffee was strong, and the grilled sandwiches were huge with great spicing and fillings. Breakfast at Greenman was a little disappointing because they were out of the crème brulee French toast.
We got ice cream from the place at the end of Rehoboth Ave. Red Velvet was really red velvet icing flavor with pieces of red velvet cake, very good. The Fluffernutter was also great.
Dinner at Salt Air Kitchen was the culinary highlight as always. They have renovated and expanded to have a lot more seating and an open kitchen. They also offer half-size portions of any entree for kids (in addition to a few kid basics like mac n cheese) so our son could eat enjoy some delicious rockfish with asparagus, potatoes and tomatoes. We had the anchovy appetizer with amazing preserved lemon marinade, the parmesan and date appetizer, and the super-creamy burrata with asparagus bruschetta (even the grilled bread it came with was delicious). The crabcakes were great as usual The whiskey white chocolate bread pudding was just ok. The special Manhattan came with a slew of marinated cherries in it and was really top notch. The strawberry pound cake was perfect with delicious in season local strawberries.
We went looking for Jam Bistro (by the owners of Eden) but they have already closed and are planning to renovate and move in to a new space across from Café Azafran. So we ate at Café Azafran and loved it! The tapas are all fantastic and really large (only slightly smaller than a full entrée size). The romesco was to die for. The soft shell crab special came with a beautiful summer squash salad. They recently opened a nice enclosed patio. They also have a basket of toys for kids to play with. Did I mention white and red sangria?
We had one breakfast at Royal Treat thanks to other chowhound’s recommendation. Nice basic food, good home fries and fast service.
Also, a new diner just opened at the corner of first and Wilmington, but we didn’t get to try it.
