This Place Is On My List

SO has Fridays off for July and August so we are looking at day trips to place we like.

Portland Maine is on the list for a destination. I was exploring the restaurant scene there (it's a big restaurant town) and came across this: Duckfat Restaurant - Portland, Maine

I think I'll have to stay overnight so I can go back. Duck fat fries, poutine, confit, sausage and more.

Double up on the Lipitor and put the EMTs on retainer, I'm coming.

Duckfat has been a popular place for quite awhile. I've been once and it was very good. The fries are a MUST!

You might want to try this place. It's in South Portland. My sister lives near there and it's literally the BEST Chinese food I've ever had. Prices are gooto too. Here's the URL:

* Lunch Restaurants - South Portland, Maine - Imperial China Chinese Restaurant
