Twisp area report

laurachow Sep 1, 2012 07:26 PM

We were so impressed with the Twisp River Pub. Ate most of our meals there when visiting Twisp/Winthrop/Mazama area. Food and brews, both were excellent.

Also had a very delicious emmer waffle at Glover Street Market in Twisp. And, don't miss the juice bar. An All Star will wake your taste buds up, pronto.

Of course we stopped in the Cinnamon Twisp Bakery for their signature Cinnamon Twisp.

Ready to go the East Side again, soon. Sunshine and delicious food!

PS: Hoot Owl Cafe. Stay away. The only bad food we had on our entire trip.

    Guess I could add some details re: Twisp River Pub since that is where we did most of our eating.

    Enjoyed some hard ciders and non-alcoholic brews. The cream soda was yummy, but the raspberry soda had a bit of cough syrup aftertaste to me so I'd go for something else. Hard ciders were tart and strong.

    Our food was great! Made with fresh, local ingredients. Well prepared. Affordable. And, generous servings, too. I really regret that we missed the Sunday brunch.

    Sweet Potato Fries - so good; thin, crisp and not greasy but (and I never thought I'd write these words) I think they were better without the goat cheese
    Madras Curry Bowl - wonderfully flavored with a rich dark curry sauce, veggies not overcooked, ate every bit and almost licked the plate
    Thai Peanut Noodles - hubby's dish, I had several bites and it was good, sauce was yummy, lots of crisp fresh veggies
    Asian Salad - great on a hot day!
    Fish Taco - so wonderful that the fish is NOT deep fried, well seasoned and lots of it.
    Tequila-Lime Shrimp Tostadas - the shrimp was perfectly cooked and seasoned, and again the portions generous
    Cheesecake - of course it was great. NY style with strawberries and a drizzle of chocolate sauce.
    Wish I could have tried the in-house made veggie burger. Maybe next trip.

      I like stopping at Hanks Market (the other, more conventional grocery in town) for their own ham and smoked meats.

        We didn't stop at Hanks. Guess we should check it out on our next trip, although we don't eat meat so might not be much draw for us.
