Lakes Region Eats
The old coot isn't this Forum's restaurant expert, I'd give that one to tis. But today (Saturday), my companion and I had to journey to the Lowe's in Gilford for an "emergency" purchase of a new portable dishwasher (Being an old coot, our kitchen (last remodeled at the turn of the previous century, doesn't have a built-in dishwasher!) We bought our new portable dishwasher from Lowe's because they actually had one in stock!
Anyway, I'd been looking for an excuse to go to the Red Hill Dairy on Rt. 25 in Center Harbor for their Fried Clams, which have no equal in the area IMHO, so we headed to Gilford via that side of the Lake. We each decided to stick with health foods and so we each had a very large order of Fried Clams and an equally big sized order of French Fries!
The Red Hill Dairy's clams didn't disappoint, they were even better than I remembered. (My traveling companion said that they were the best fried clams that they'd ever had!) HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Ran through an incredibly intense downpour 'tween Weirs & Gilford, bought the new appliance and headed home via Alton Bay. Along the way we passed Hart's Turkey Farm (very slow) William Tell in Alton (fairly busy) East of Suez coming into Wolfeboro (PACKED with cars!) and Morrissey's Front Porch (very slow at 6:38PM).
Hours have passed since our clam extravaganza. Everything I ate is still agreeing with me, a sure sign of the food's high quality.
