Sundays in My Neck of the Woods

In Scarborough, Maine, at 207 Pine Point Road, is an eatery called Ken's Place.   There are picnic tables outside for enjoying the summer sun, and indoor tables as well, if the sun gets too hot, or it happens to rain.

Inside is a raw oyster bar, if that's your thing, and then windows into the kitchen where you can place your order for fish 'n chips, lobster rolls, and all sorts of yummy foods.

There are dinners, sandwiches and ala carte items...lobster stew, fish chowder, salads, shrimp, clams, and for those who aren't into seafood, burgers, chicken nuggets, egg salad, hot dogs, onion rings, and grilled cheese.    You place your order after browsin the extensive menu, and when your meal is ready, your number is called.

I was in the mood for chicken nuggets, so  ordered the dinner which came with coleslaw, fries, and a roll.   The nuggets were all real, white meat chicken, not processed chicken products you get at some fast food places, and they were tasty!  The coleslaw serving was generous; the size of the container was deceiving, as they had really packed a huge amount of coleslaw in that little plastic cup.

Hubby ordered the clamcake dinner which consisted of two clamcakes, fries, coleslaw and a roll.  Since his surgery, we've been eating healthy, but it was time for a walk on the wild side!  And well worth the fall off the wagon it was!  Just a couple of miles from Pine Point Beach, this place is a big hit with the tourists and does a huge business in the summer!

Undoubtedly, we'll find our way back there at least once more before the end of the summer. It's too good not to warrant a return visit!

Clamcake. Oooooh Ahhhhh. I want Clamcake! Gosh that sounds yummy. I made crab cakes last night and they were ok. I'm not the best fish/seafood cook, but sometimes I dabble.
Hope you're having a nice Sunday, my friend!

Obviously worth the fall off the wagon! My mouth is watering like crazy!

We would love to sit and eat it all. But, we are watching our waist lines these days. We'd order extra coleslaw and split the clam cakes order. Do they make the clamcakes the way crabcakes are made?

Looks awesome!!! I ate at a place near here and had fried pickles!!! Yeah it's no lobster roll but what do expect from land-locked Missouri?
Nice post! W.C.C.

Oh my gosh, that looks delish!!!!!!!
What a great post! If I'm ever in Maine I'm stopping here.

That sounds like a wonderful place!
Clamcakes and lobster rolls, not to mention chicken nuggets "a la river". I don't like the processed chicken stuff we get here, so I make my own nuggets if I'm in the mood for them. Just like a schnitzel only in miniature! Much nicer than Maccas (McDonald's)nuggets.

Pat said...

Wait....there were fish/chips, lobster rolls, clams, and you ordered CHICKEN NUGGETS? What are you...nucking futs? Or is it because you live in Maine, so you are used to getting seafood whenever you want? LOL!

That clamcake looks good to me and for some reason I've really been into onion rings lately. I'd probably have to order some there.

Laurie Matherne said...

One more reason to return to Maine someday. That clamcake . . . wow.
