For a Great Hamburger: “Five Guys” in Somers Point

“Keep it simple.” That is just what they did at “Five Guys Famous Burgers and Fries.” Hamburgers are their specialty and that’s what they focus on: Delicious, juicy hamburgers in a causal atmosphere. Fresh, never frozen.

The Hamburger ($3.99) is huge. They also have a Little Burger ($2.89). You can add cheese and bacon for extra and the other toppings are free.

They are also known for their famous fries with the skins on and cooked in peanut oil-no cholesterol. We heard how good the food was and we agree. Check it out! They certainly beat fast food places for flavor and freshness.

They also have hotdogs for $2.99, cheese or bacon extra and veggie or grilled cheese sandwiches. For a specialty burger check out “Five Guys” when mom doesn’t want to cook for the whole gang.

For The Freshest Seafood Around Try the Lobster House

 

If you want the freshest seafood, then go to the docks where the fishing boats come in. Where you ask? The Lobster House in Cape May is the best value around. Recently we had a party at the Lobster House and everyone raved over their meal.

 

We started with clams casino and fried mushrooms. Then a delicious salad was served with your choice of dressing. Some of the main courses were Crabmeat au Gratin (19.25) the Lobster House Special- scallops, shrimp and lobster tails over linguine with a garlic butter sauce (22 my choice!), Broiled Fisherman’s Wharf Platter- (left) a ½ lb lobster tail stuffed with crab, flounder, scallops, clams casino, and stuffed shrimp (24.95) and shrimp parmigiana (19.50). My parents always get the steamed lobsters 1 lb. (19.50) 2 lb. (28.) A great value! Lobster bib included.

 

For non-seafood folks there are many items including filet mignon, (23.95) and chicken parmigiana (17.25). All the meals come with a salad, choice of potato and vegetable.

 

The Lobster House also offers a great view, a take out seafood market and in the warmer months you can get a take-out platter and sit on their dock and watch boats go by. There is also a raw bar including u peel shrimp and steamed Maryland crabs and cocktails, beer and wine are served too.

 

Everyone is so glad the Lobster House is back after a fire closed their dining room for a while. If you have not been to the Lobster House, then go if you love casual dining and the best seafood around. In the warmer months you will find me sitting on their docks with a big smile on my face!

 

They don’t take reservations so get there early and you’ll get to watch the sunset and see fish being unloaded. They also offer a tour of the wharf in the summer through www.capemaymac.org

Spectacular Brunch Awaits You at Seaview Marriott

 

If you are looking for a great place to take Mom for Mother’s Day, why not treat her to the Sunday Brunch at the Seaview Marriott?

 

The Seaview Marriott in Galloway Township serves a delicious brunch on Sundays from 11 – 2 pm. On our recent visit we enjoyed Danish, pastry, fresh fruit, an omelet station, biscuits and cream dried beef, bacon, sausage, home fried potatoes, waffles, blintzes, assorted cheeses, bagels, coffee, orange juice and champagne.

 

The service staff was very friendly and we enjoyed listening to live piano music. After enjoying the breakfast items, we were ready for lunch which included a tossed salad, tomato & mozzarella salad, shrimp cocktail, King crab legs, seafood newburg, crab cakes, a carving station of fabulous prime rib and baked ham. There also was a sushi station, pasta, potato and tuna salad and pork tenderloin.

 

Fortunately, we all had room for dessert, which included cheese cake, cream puffs, napoleons, chocolate mousse cake, brownies, cannoli, apple pie, banana cake and a chocolate fountain with fruit. The meal was so filling we weren’t hungry for dinner that night! The beautiful dining room overlooks the putting green. Get your reservations in early for Mother’s Day.

 

The Seaview Marriott Resort used to be a private country club that is now open to the public. I have nice memories of attending my girlfriend’s 16th Birthday Party in 1971 for lunch and swimming in the pool. During the LPGA I got to meet Michelle Wie, Natalie Gulbis and it was exciting to watch Annika Sorenstam play golf. Now everyone can enjoy the ambiance of this stately old hotel.

Indian Food: “Try it, You’ll Like it!”

 

Looking for a new dining experience? Bombay Indian Restaurant in the English Creek Shopping Center in EHT is the place for you if you are adventurous!

 

Recently, we dined at the Maharajah Indian Restaurant in Cambridge, England so we were familiar with a few of the items on Bombay’s menu. But since we were undecided, we went for their Non-vegetarian dinner sampler for 2 for $35. It was a great choice to get to sample many of their items.

 

We started with chips (similar to a flat nacho) with 2 dipping sauces, one with bbq flavor and the other spicy with green peppers. Then we were served samosa, a hot pastry of hummus. Very good.

 

The main course included Tandoori Chicken Tikka, lamb curry, chicken korma, sheikh kabab, rice and naan bread. There were 4 dipping sauces; the first had chick peas and a tangy sauce, the second lentils, the third a spicy yellow sauce (Wow! I think I bit into some cardamom!) and the fourth a white yogurt sauce.  The kabab came on a hot plate with sizzling onions, green peppers and carrots, chicken and an interesting sausage.(pictured)

 

My favorite was the chicken korma, which has a mild blend of spices in a creamy sauce.

The naan bread is used as a utensil to dip in the various bowls. We also tried the sweet lassi which is a sweet yogurt drink, a new twist on a healthy milk shake! There were a variety of inexpensive appetizers and I was surprised to see so many seafood items on the menu.

So if you are looking for a unique experience, check out Bombay. We certainly had our fill of new and unique tastes.

A Trip to the ‘Bold Look of Kohler’

 

We visited Kohler, Wisconsin, home of the Kohler Company where they make everything for your home enjoyment from kitchen sinks to bath tubs to faucets. We visited the Kohler Design Center and took a tour of the Kohler Factories to see how bathtubs, sinks and faucets are made.

 

The village of Kohler is located outside of Sheboygan, Wisconsin and is about an hour from the Milwaukee Airport. The free tour starts weekdays at 8:30 am and lasts for 3 hours. Reservations are required, and you will visit the Pottery Factory where ceramic sinks and toilets are poured into molds and heated in huge kilns and the Brass Building where hundred of faucets are made each day. The next factory is the Foundry where 6 foot cast iron tubs are made by pouring red hot metal into molds and allowed to cool, then they are sprayed with colored enamel and dried. We saw about 50 tubs on the conveyor belts.

 

It was a fascinating tour to actually see how all these products are made and to see these hard working men at work, many working without shirts on in the hot factory. Another interesting site was seeing men ride around the factory on 3 wheel bicycles; a fast way to get around.

 

The factories are each about the size of a foot ball field and three stories tall. You must wear goggles and you are not allowed to take pictures. They also have a division for artists from all over the world that design creative pieces of art work. Our tour guide had worked at the factory for years and made the tour very interesting.

 

Kohler is the largest plumbing-ware manufacturer in the nation. You can also visit the Design Center 9am – 5 pm and see many displays of kitchens, bathrooms, and spas. They also have a floor that tells the history of the Kohler family. I have a deeper appreciation at what it takes to make some of our most essential home products. As a plumbing contractor, my husband was impressed with the size of the company with 4,000 employees in Wisconsin and 200,000 worldwide.

 

 

We stayed at the exclusive American Club, Carriage House, and enjoyed complimentary breakfast, massages, shopping, afternoon tea and an evening cocktail hour served with cheese and fruit before a delicious dinner. Destination Kohler is a AAA5Diamond Hotel. During the Cocktail hour we got to meet some of the other guests who included an oilman from Texas. Everyone was extremely friendly. Most visitors were there to golf. Whistling Straits is home to the US Senior Open in July 2007.

 

We ate at Cucina for dinner and enjoyed Minestrone, Salad, Veal Parmesan $25 and Beef Bolognese $15 and a great chocolate dessert and limoncello cheesecake. We also enjoyed dinner at the nostalgic Wisconsin Room where we enjoyed a spectacular soup sampler of 3 soups for $7: Carrot and Ginger, Crab and Shrimp Bisque, and Cold Cucumber soup. I was happy to be able to sample each one; what a great idea! For dinner I enjoyed fettuccine and shrimp with sun-dried tomatoes and mushrooms $26 and my husband enjoyed one of the best filet mignons and whipped potatoes $31. Very reasonable! We also sampled unique 12-year old cheddar cheese at the Market at Woodlake.

 

Following are some of the pictures from the Design Center. Maybe they will give you some ideas for your next project. Or better yet take a trip there to see it first hand.
