Sundays in My Neck of the Woods

There's a restaurant in Scarborough, Maine, at 521 Route 1, right across from the Scarborough Marsh called Anjon's.   In the summer, there's a fountain spouting water out front.  This time of year it is all wrapped in white plastic, which is what you see on the right in front of that car,

Behind the hostess station when you enter, all the different pasta sauces they make are available to take home, if you choose.  And you will want to take some home!
Their specialty is Italian food, although seafood and steaks are also on the menu.  The dining room is nicely deocrated with Roman columns, pictures that take you to Italy, and white tablecloths and bottles of olive oil are on each table.

Our waitress brought us a basket of fresh Italian bread that was so good, we ate it all!

Hubby ordered broiled haddock with a side of pasta topped with their yummy sauce.

I ordered the luncheon serving of lasagna with a meatball on the side.   The lasagna consisted of noodles layered with ricotta and mozzarella topped with their delicious marinara sauce and mozzerlla cheese.  The meatball was the best I've ever tasted.  I would have to say that Anjon's may be the best Itailian reataurant I've tried.
You'll notice in the upper right hand corner of this page from their menu is their meatball sandwich challenge.  They make a meatball sandwich with 12 meatballs!  It's $39.00, but if you can eat the whole thing within an hour, it's free, plus you get a free t-shirt and you picture on the wall.  We wouldn't think of attempting it, but whoever does will be eating 12 of the best meatballs on the planet!  Feel free to visit their website  to learn more about this wonderful Italian restaurant; also, their sauces can be ordered on line!

Note;  I was not compensated in any way for this review; the opinions expressed are mine only.

Wonder if that guy on 'Man vs Food' has ever tried their 12 meatball special? The lasagna looked amazing. Is it lunch time yet?

Nice post as usual, Ms Eva! Thanks.

I find some of my favorite canned good are purchased from restaurants. I would definitely need a car of their tomato sauce :-)

Usually my mouth waters after reading about your Sunday dining, but since I just returned from a night out to an Italian restaurant, I don't have to be envious at all, thank you very much! Your food looks good, though!
