Cape May Tasty Eats and Treats
Having John Howard-Fusco a Cape May, New Jersey expert and author of “A Culinary History of Cape May: Salt Oysters, Beach Plums & Cabernet Franc” by The History Press at my disposal on Small Bites Radio is an asset. So when I knew I would be spending a few days down there, you’re darn right I asked for his advice and followed his wonderful book to have a great time while in Cape May. If interested in doing this as well CLICK HERE to buy his book. Below are the delicious things I had to eat in and around the area. Be sure to try them out for yourself and thank me and John Howard-Fusco later. Fyi, you really don’t need to thank me, and John would much rather you just buy his book 😉 JK
Lobster House – Cape May, NJ
Pictured is Snapper Soup, Famous Crab Soup, Fresh Jersey Oysters on the half shell, Jersey Baked Clams Casino, Clam Bake Dinner with lobster, steamed clams, shrimp, mussels, red skin potato, and an ear of corn, and a side of fresh cut thick French fries. Everything was great and the view is enjoyable on the deck.
Mad Batter – Cape May, NJ
Pictured is Mad Batter Clam Chowder a rich blend of chopped clams, onions and bacon in a heavy cream broth with a touch of saffron, Pan Seared Red Snapper and Battered Shrimp with warm corn salad, lime compound butter, fresh avocado, mashed potatoes and asparagus, and Chocolate Lava Cake. This was a great meal and loved the atmosphere and service was top notch.
Elizabeth Degener A.K.A the Cape May Bread Lady with Enfin Farms at 609 Sunset Blvd, Cape May, NJ
I was lucky enough to get the very last piece of bread for sale for the day and the stand was only open for less than an hour. Pictured is the pumpernickel bread and it was AMAZINGLY awesome and tasty.
Uncle Bill’s Pancake House & Family Restaurant – Cape May, NJ
Pictured are their famous tender buttermilk pancakes that they have been serving for over 50 years. They were so yummy and a good way to start the day with food in my belly.
Then not technically in Cape May, but close enough to drive to we visited Back Bay Bistro – Villas, NJ
Pictured is crab bisque which was awesome, steamers which is littleneck clams in a garlic wine broth that were out of this world, and their Honey Dipped Fried Chicken that was a slam dunk of a great meal and would order again in a second. This place really surprised me since it was a little off the beaten path and food was top notch.
