My mom and I made a quick trip to Portsmouth, NH, this week. It was a bit of a whirlwind trip, but we managed to survive the heat and enjoyed some really tasty food.
Monday’s dinner was at B&G’s Boathouse. We started with some steamers, and then each had one of their fish dinners. I had the swordfish (the most local fish), blackened. It was slightly spicy, the texture was buttery, and the coleslaw was pretty tasty, as well. Overall, pretty yummy.
My mom had the sea bass, broiled. Her fish was also delicious – it was the first time I’ve ever tasted sea bass. And we both washed down our dinners with some refreshing citrusy beers.
On Tuesday, we had breakfast outside at Popover’s on the Square – we each had an Oven Toasted Egg Sandwich with black forest ham, fresh fruit, and iced chai. The service was friendly, the food was quick, and the only thing I didn’t love was that the cheese on the sandwich was American. Overall, a lovely breakfast.
Tuesday’s lunch was at Surf – we sat outside again and had a lovely view of the Piscataqua River.
It felt like it was about 95 degrees so we loaded up on ice water and freshly squeezed lemonade. We both had the blackened fish tacos, which were spicy and absolutely delicious. The service was friendly and attentive and it was a great experience.
In just a short time, we had some great food and I had a great time with my mom. When’s the next trip?
