New Thing #209: Kream N' Kone

KreamNKoneI told you the last time I was on the Cape that we were coming back. Well, that was this weekend.

Turned out to be a rainy first day, when I was hoping to hit the beach again.

But my wife and I were able to do some other fun, relaxing activities.

And eat a lot of food.

Our first stop for lunch on Friday - the Kream N' Kone Restaurant in Chatham...where we had nothing either kreamy nor in a kone.

What we were really looking for was something to hold us over - it was late for lunch and we were going to have a nice dinner, so we just needed a quick bite.

This place looked like it was going to fit the bill.

But before I go ahead and tell you about it, let me flash back once again to Montauk -  I told you the last time I wrote about the Cape that everything I do there gets measured up against Montauk...which, by virtue of being where I spent so much time growing up, I view as my ideal vacation spot.

One of my favorite things, food-wise, in Montauk was the fried seafood. Fried clams, fried shrimp, forms of fish 'n' chips...that was always my go-to meal whenever I was unsure what to get.

Especially at Gosman's Dock.

At Gosman's there was an outdoor stand where you'd get your food at a window and then sit on the water and battle the seagulls while you ate your food. Once in a while it would be tasty to get a burger or something grilled there, but 99 times out of 100 I got something fried in a basket with french fries.

And that's what I wanted on Friday.

And that's what I got.

It's been years since I had something that looked like this...and was also this good. And it brought me back to my Montauk vacations...which is always a good thing. The only thing missing was the seagulls swooping nearby.
