Provincetown, The "Outer Cape" and Wellfleet Too

Poke has become quite a "thing" in Little Rock, where there are a couple of restaurants who center their menus around it.

It's kind of a thing here, there, and pretty much all over.

 

As with all fads, I give it a year or two before they start falling by the wayside.

Bet it’s quicker. How much of an appetizer can one eat?

Hoping it lasts longer here. I love a bowl of it for lunch.

I am back on the Cape through Labor Day.  There will be lots of eating out, lots of home cooking, and some interesting stuff like a whale watch and a tour of an oyster farm to share with you.  We came out last night to beat the weekend traffic and are staying in a hotel for two nights before moving to a home in Chatham for a week, and the rest of the time will be spent at our favorite rental house in Wellfleet, which I have mentioned here before.  We made it out in time for dinner at Brine.  This place is great for us because there is no shrimp, crab or lobster on the menu, so my nephew can have whatever he wants.

 

The restaurant was pretty empty and I overheard a waitress telling another table that while weekends have been busy, this whole summer season has been pretty slow compared to other years.  People are blaming the increased frequency of great white shark sightings close to shore.  I blame the new short term rental tax that was instituted this year.  

 

Anyway, on to the food!  Drinks

Those tacos look fantastic...you can see that they have puffed so were probably really tender.  So jealous!

Because we are in a hotel, we had to eat all of our meals out yesterday (we are moving to our first rental house this afternoon).  We went to my nephew's favorite for breakfast yesterday, the Fairway.  Nephew had his usual pancakes (they look flatter because they have to cook them in a special pan rather than on the griddle as they cook crab cakes on the griddle)

 

1244738912_fairwaypancakes.thumb.jpg.6552c197413399e8b0eeb104cfe2867f.jpg

 

Niece went for cranberry pancakes

Husband had a garden benedict on foccacia

I had a Nova benedict

We entertained ourselves by playing hangman while waiting for the food

We went to Provincetown for the day.  It is Carnival week, which draws up to 100,000 people to a town with only 3,000 residents, so we were expecting a crowd.  It really was not too bad, maybe everyone was sleeping in expectation of the evening festivities.  A cruise ship was docked in the harbor, a very unusual sight

 

2047262676_ptowncruiseship.thumb.jpg.76882d03550bfb261e748edfd432e850.jpg

 

The town was festively decorated for Carnival

 

344769988_ptowninn.thumb.jpg.3c9f3dea8cd86e4b591de6b868084ddf.jpg

 

My niece and nephew know that I am sharing my food photos here, so they insisted I take a picture of their smoothies, purchased at Cafe Maria on the harbor. Espresso and blueberry-banana smoothie

 

2103150934_ptownsmoothies.thumb.jpg.350f5880d56400f10ce668e7ce114b3c.jpg

 

We went shopping for books to read on this trip, and got quite a haul.  I know this might be a little political, but I have to include this picture of books we found for sale.  My niece thought it was hysterical that people write political fan fiction.  She is more accustomed to the Harry Potter variety  🙂

 

obama.thumb.jpg.1c2280afa8f2712f01e1bedd59c38302.jpg

 

We stopped in to Mac's Fish House for a small snack.  Drinks for the husband and myself.  The one on the left is a strawberry-tequila fizz, and the right is a spicy margarita

We had dinner at Karoo.  It was very dark by the time we ate so I had to switch to my phone for pictures, and I did not get pictures of everything.  Vegetable samosa

These would be a worthwhile purchase just for the cover art. Especially the one on the left. Now I have to look these up.

My husband said he is going to pick them up the next time we are in Provincetown, just for the cover art.  I had already picked out six other books and I am the package sherpa when we shop, so did not want to carry anything else 🙂

 

We are now in the Chatham rental house.  My husband did not show me any pictures before booking it and now I know why.  The kitchen is vintage!  It has wall to wall carpeting, eek.  The stove is a "Magic Chef."  I think there are going to be more restaurant meals this week than I had planned for.   The house does have a small grill and a swimming pool and is walking distance to downtown and the beach so it is all good.  

 

We had linner in town yesterday while waiting to get in to the house.  We chose the Impudent Oyster.   It has a huge menu so there is something for everyone. Take a look:

 Fried calamari, artichokes and banana peppers

 

968171982_iocalamari.thumb.jpg.1b3f9f4afa1ae2965e519c6d9ae1ecd6.jpg

 

Broiled cod tacos

Fried local cod with wasabi cream and Asian slaw

 

111471630_iocodichiro.thumb.jpg.d0d23817b0629c0af280b90cfc50d98b.jpg

 

Scallop roll.  This was my brother in law's.  I pointed out the burned part of the bun but he opted to just pick that art off and eat the rest rather than sending it back.  

 

424751484_ioscallops.thumb.jpg.74a69aad184f506c0a730e3612575c2e.jpg

 

No pictures of my nephew's Beyond Burger (verdict: he likes the Impossible Burger better) or my sister's fish burger, which came out burned and had to be replaced.  They comped the replacement and a drink so no complaints.  The restaurant--the whole town really--was so jammed and busy.  

 

Desserts for the teens: sticky toffee pudding

 

1246237524_iotoffeepudding.thumb.jpg.ebb109463dc132467f28833413510c47.jpg

Sunday night we cooked at the house.  I took inspiration from the Mantoulin blog on the Food Traditions and Culture page and made a clipper ship cocktail for everyone.  It was tasty.

 

672819052_clippership.thumb.jpg.0a8c59938a41aba392afdfb2337af0ff.jpg

 

For dinner we had grilled swordfish and grilled mackerel, a loaf of bread from a local bakery and a caprese salad made with arugula, tomatoes and burrata purchased at the Cape Abilities farm store.  Cape Abilities is a pretty cool operation, you can check it out here:

Tonight we went to Bluefins Sushi and Sake Bar in downtown Chatham.  My niece loves sushi.  Adult drinks.  I know my husband's was a saketini. Mine was a gin, elderflower, cucumber drink 

 

bluefindrinks.thumb.jpg.8ce9763c75fb82f765f40109d07e67b7.jpg

 

My nephew with the crustacean allergy left with his Mom today before this meal to get ready to go back to college, so we ordered crispy Thai flavored shrimp.  Overbreaded in my opinion

 

536944649_bluefinshrimp.thumb.jpg.12bcf3377719fa0571e94516cc76e3fd.jpg

 

Deconstructed lobster rangoon.  An interesting idea for my next Super Bowl party, if I can host one (I am not a football fan and only host when my home team--the New England Patriots--are in it)

 

1554912849_bluefinrangoon.thumb.jpg.152ab1999b7d32f7603a5327668a977b.jpg

 

Pork belly lettuce cups.  Niece approved

 

669968112_bluefinlettucecups.thumb.jpg.f18c6244960e850b5c8e197575ea96d0.jpg

 

Tiger eye roll (salmon, jalapeño, cream cheese, unagi sauce) chosen by niece. 

 

332406755_tigereye.thumb.jpg.ae1378112cdb4fad83f9858b7412489f.jpg

 

 

Tuna crunch roll (with avocado tempura crumbs and thai chili sauce), another niece selection.  Chatham sunset: raw scallop with spicy crumbs, tobiko and mango.  Negi toro, with wasabi and mango sauce (again, chosen by niece).

Yesterday we went out to breakfast at the Captain's Table.  Right now the group consists of only my husband, my niece and myself.  My brother is joining us later today, and my sister and my husband's brother are returning on Friday.  Husband had the Portuguese egg sandwich

 

ctsandwich.thumb.jpg.9cfd19db6764cab716176489c454b324.jpg

 

I chose the smoked salmon and roasted pepper eggs benedict

 

ctloxbennie.thumb.jpg.2ec3880709d4acc177ae86758892a746.jpg

 

and niece had the blueberry breakfast bread pudding

 

874011321_captainstableblueberrybreadpudding.thumb.jpg.7169e2cb143aa71e4fa1e5b98abb2eb5.jpg

 

Later that that day we walked in to town and went to Buffy’s Ice Cream Shop.

For dinner we had planned to try a new to us restaurant but it was closed for some reason. We are going to try again tonight. We ended up back at the Impudent Oyster. Drinks—a rosemary gin fizz and a lemon drop.

 

09FF867D-8D82-4A3B-A4E5-F7410247E2B9.thumb.jpeg.2ef807670d72cd1399c94bdd0c86126d.jpeg

 

They brought us an entire loaf of bread to share. We ate about a third of it.

 

91BD2136-2ECB-4FC6-822C-B8D7F929DDEE.thumb.jpeg.798bd4ceb13915ab06072e48fea19fe2.jpeg

 

Husband and I shared a striped bass seveche. Niece ate the avocado and some of the chips.  This was really good.

 

98A526F6-426D-4DF3-A43C-211A5622BC66.thumb.jpeg.2986b678da19be0bd5f823c8598e87bb.jpeg

 

We also shared some raw oysters topped with a roasted tomato and shrimp mignonette. Delicious again

 

904FE2EA-FA73-4BFA-BD93-031E840F7657.thumb.jpeg.0e3aebe0844d3854211f6d016bc5a8d3.jpeg

 

Niece had had a sesame crusted tuna with rice and a wasabi cream sauce. There were two huge pieces of tuna, and she ate them both 

 

055F0677-E860-4BC9-9530-E155942D136A.thumb.jpeg.715407e08138d78366cabd9c1a558b55.jpeg

 

Husband had a striped bass and lobster dish 

 

FE07242B-4F4E-4E55-8060-1B94F5D39A31.thumb.jpeg.be5919ffd2a8619375fe43131da09a56.jpeg

 

and I had seafood puttanesca

 

42AFDC7C-EA02-46DF-B3E9-559725B94400.thumb.jpeg.e2a8976b16a90e700af2c8690830f831.jpeg

 

The lady sitting beside us also ordered this dish. She told the server she did not like lobster or olives but she was going to order it anyway as she thought the other pasta dish (fra diavolo) sounded bland. We left before her plate arrived so I did not get to see if she ended up liking it.

 

We were too full for dessert

Yesterday we had a late lunch in town at the Blue Coral.  Drink--two kinds of margarita and a glass of Whispering Angel rose

Despite eating all the poke and ramen my niece was still hungry after lunch so we took her to Brick House where she selected this cappuccino chip ice cream

And here are some scenic pictures from last evening’s sunset walk. A panorama of the dunes and Light House Beach

Thanks.

I forgot to post my pictures of the Highland Light...

You can probably guess which one of these is Hopper's.

 

 

Have you ever seen the house he lived in?  The window that he used to look out to get inspiration for the light of his seascapes is now boarded over to block the view of a monster house that was built illegally nearby.  I am not sure what the current status of that property is, I know it was in court for a while because Truro wanted it torn down.  

 

Fun fact, one of the first houses we used to rent often in Wellfleet is in a Hopper painting.  The second one from the left in this image:

The guy who owns it is a direct descendant of Walt Whitman.  Unfortunately, he dramatically raised the rental rate and t's out of our price range now.

 

Our last meal in Chatham was at the Squire. Drinks: dark and stormy, Sancerre and salty dog

Fried shrimp

And now this morning we pack up for our move to Wellfleet, where we will be through Labor Day.

Yesterday we had lunch at Winslow's Tavern to kill time while waiting to get in to our Wellfleet rental house.  Drinks: crush and blush, te amo tequila, and summer in a glass

 

2062335010_winslowsdrinks.thumb.jpg.c792b9569ec62ceb67716453242623d5.jpg

 

We got two kinds of roasted oysters, our usual tabasco-lime butter ones

 

705388096_winslowstabascolimeoysterd.thumb.jpg.73e132786626b355256f60855c08395b.jpg

 

and one from the specials list that had blue cheese butter and bacon jam

 

605796079_winslowsbaconoysters.thumb.jpg.3ed3cb564b8f767ce5cf41331ec8067c.jpg

 

some people got their usual, such as my niece's prosciutto-fig jam-gruyere panino with herb fries

 

2097657224_winslowsproscuittopanini.thumb.jpg.762cd9fadf5cc7a28d5d4273c2eac3be.jpg

 

and my husband's lobster-prosciutto-saffron aioli sandwich

Sister and brother opted for a fish taco special

 

2003397739_winslowscodtacos.thumb.jpg.2ed7c397b6da286a25e8a6d4be6bbc3f.jpg

 

brother in law opted for a kale salad with shrimp

 

1711743611_winslowkalesalad.thumb.jpg.b0202bc7dbf966d5c8c3933ea9ff07c0.jpg

 

and I had the summer ravioli special

 

1152524132_winslowssummerravioli.thumb.jpg.30a1200d95ae46cce71154499cc41218.jpg

 

only niece had room for dessert, her usual triple chocolate mousse

 

1505423743_winslowstriplechoclatemousse.thumb.jpg.20223545d71ff55cb8ddc6729f3b1e56.jpg

 

Everyone ended up getting hungry again later, and I had brought my pizza stone and peel with me, so I made pizzas for dinner using fish I picked up in town.  Clam

 

clam.thumb.jpg.5e56dbcc8bb41f86d1bac63f6f56f4c4.jpg

 

Fresh mozzarella and bacon

Lobster

Today's food is unplanned.  Brother in law wants to go to the Beachcomber but parking there on a weekend can be challenging to say the least.

@liamsaunt, I so enjoy the seafood-centric meals. I did notice, and it is a huge pet peeve for me, the fish tacos swimming in liquid. Last time I had that kind of situation I wound up having to knife/fork them because the tortilla disintegrated.

Yes, they were definitely oversauced with avocado crema. Both siblings opted for the knife and fork approach.

Last night we went to dinner at Mac’s Shack. We did our usual strategy of showing up before the start of service and having a drink in the outdoor bar to be sure to make the first seating. Unfortunately, a LOT of other people had the same idea. This place had a write up in the New York Times a few weeks ago and the secret is out!  Here are a few of the things we ate:

 

drinks

Hamachi aguachile

Coconut curry sea scallops
