I love a chargrilled octopus. It is a favorite of mine. This is bar far the best. So tender. I recommend it. Don’t miss it. You can have it as an entree or as an appetizer.

Cafe Papillon, French Cafe, Patisserie, Rehoboth Beach, Delaware

Bon Jour Rehoboth Beach. It promises to be a gorgeous Saturday at the Delaware Beaches.

How about a little breakfast, but not the usual run of the mill kind of breakfast.

For over 20 years Cafe Papillon has been in Rehoboth Beach, located at the Penny Lane Mall, 42 Rehoboth Ave. It is an alley on the ocean block. They are on Social Media. 302-227-7568.

Meet Jerome. He never ages. You may addressed him in French. They open only on weekends at the moment from 8 a.m to 2. After Memorial the hours change. On one side you get crepes and on the other you can buy French baked goods; a patisserie. And in between there is outdoor seating to enjoy your goodies.

From the photo above you can see Jerome starting my crepe. I chose the egg, cheese, smoked salmon, tomatoes and chives. Then here is the next step. OMG it looks so good.

The finished crepe and he put a slice of lemon on top.

So while in Rehoboth Beach check them out. Sitting outdoors on a beautiful spot is priceless.

I did take a photo of what the girl in front ordered 😂

So what are you waiting for?

Bodhi Kitchen, Asian Inspired, Restaurant, Rehoboth Beach, Delaware Beaches, Their Modern Take on Street Food

First impressions always count.

Looks nice, doesn’t it? Bodhi was our destination late on Saturday evening. It is located at 10 N 1st St., in Downtown Rehoboth Beach. Best to have reservations. They are on Social Media. 302-567-2129

This is my second time at Bodhi and our service was excellent.

Starting with a Mango Matcha Lemonade. Grey Goose Citron, House Mango Syrup, fresh squeezed lemon, matcha float. It was not my drink but a taste told me that could a perfect summer crafted cocktail.

Thai Chicken Lettuce Wraps for the table. While it was very good I think the restaurant has other offerings to try. It is a little spicy in case that’s something you want to take into consideration.

I usually don’t order Shrimp Toast but these are so good I have had them twice. A side of hot mustard complemented them so well.

Another appetizer for the table was the Togarashi Tuna on top of crispy sushi rice, avocado and spicy Japanese mayo. Togarashi is a blend of about 7 spices.

The photo above shows the Miso Seared Ahi Tuna with ginger dashi, stir fried veggies and Udon noodles. Dashi is a combination of kelp seaweed, and dried bonito flakes. Udon noodles are made out of wheat flour. They are thick and white color. This dish under the Large Plates was very well received.

Totally love the Soup Dumplings. Ground Pork, ginger, scallion, rice wine and pork broth. It is a favorite and was part of my dinner.

Love it when servers know all the dishes so well and can make recommendations.

The weekend is around the corner. Have a good one.

First time at The Listening Booth located at 35000 Midway Outlet Drive, Suite 218. Basically it is on the side of the Polo outlet as you go into the bathroom area. At the Surfside Tanger Outlet. It is a small venue, a stage, and they do serve drinks. 302-313-1718.

It is described as a haven for musicians and culture appreciators. The Listening Booth now needs more space and this coming Friday is the last performance at this particular address as they are moving up a mile up the road. Check them on Social Media.

This is their Schedule:

This past Saturday enjoyed Don’t Tell Comedy. This is a secret comedy show. Once you are on their email they will send you the where and when in your area. I know it is not very clear but that’s the whole purpose. A surprise. 4 comedians took the stage. Lots of laughter and all had their own funny bone.

The show was a couple of hours long. Then to a late dinner in Downtown Rehoboth Beach.

Friends and laughter. 😂

Kabab Falafel Addiction, Restaurant, Rehoboth Beach, Delaware Beaches, Eat In, Carry Out, Parking

Kabab Falafel Addiction is located at The Shoppes of Camelot right on Coastal Highway. Middle Eastern food, casual, eat in or carry out. Plenty of parking.

Stopped by since I had not been in some time. I only had a couple of things. The restaurant is so clean and the service is very good. I was doing errands and got hungry.

I love Hummus and a traditional one you will find here. Warm pita bread. I was asked if they could spice it up. I said yes. It was not spicy; just perfect.

A Tabouleh Salad I also ordered. Tabouleh is bulgur wheat. This was not one that I particularly liked because it hardly had Tabouleh. Too much parsley.

Summer is around the corner and going to the beach with a picnic would be great. Order from here, hassle free and enjoy the day.

The restaurant opens at 11:00 a.m.

Check them on Social Media. Facebook as Kabab Falafel Addiction and on Instagram as fkaddiction.

Off The Hook, Restaurant, Bethany Beach, Casual, Lunch, Happy Hour, Dinner, Delaware Beaches

Off The Hook is their first restaurant in Bethany Beach located at 769 Garfield Pkwy. It is about a mile or so west of Bethany. It is very popular. No reservations. 302-829-1424. It has a nice bar and you can eat there too. Let’s see what else? It is one that I frequent with my girlfriends from Ocean City. We can drive half way. Plus, I have never had a bad meal there.

Off The Hook opens at 11:30. Lunch menu, bar menu, dinner menu and cocktail and wine menu. 😃

Specials almost every day. Please have in mind that specials are dine in only. Half priced entrees start at 3 p.m. until closing, available Monday through Thursday. Pretty good deal.

I think you have all the info. So let me tell you what we had. First we got there at 6 and we did have to wait. That’s a popular hour. Maybe a little later may be best.

Drinks and conversation…catching up, right? I got a Prosecco Rose.

In a mood for Salmon I went with their Roasted Salmon. It had drunken cherries, spinach, parsnip whip, cherry gastrique and crispy parsnip.

I almost forgot. Please try the bread. It was delicious 👏👏

Look at this other dish. Cioppino. This is actually an Italian/American dish that originated in San Francisco. A fish stew. Shrimp, scallops, mussels, fin fish, sweet sausage, a beautiful and savory tomato broth. Topped with a crostini. Perfect.

Guess what? That was our meal.

I hope you have a gorgeous weekend. The beach towns are crowded.

Dalmata Italiano, Restaurant, Rehoboth Beach, Italian Food, Pizza, Homemade Desserts, Bar, Delaware Beaches

By the looks of today, the weather is not that great. Last Sunday it was magical. Warm breezes and a beautiful boardwalk for walking and working up an appetite.
Where to go? I had a craving for pizza. And walking destination took me to Dalmata. It is located at 28 Wilmington Ave. 302-227-8512.

Dalmata opens Wednesday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.

I have fallen in love with Dalmata for different reasons. I use it as my neighborhood restaurant. If I don’t feel like cooking or have a craving for everything Italian or pizza, I know I will feel very comfortable there eating by myself. Not that eating by myself has ever stopped me from going to a restaurant😁

I started with a Rose Prosecco. I told you I had walked the Boardwalk.

Starting with a Burrata Caprese Salad. The Burrata had a buttery and milky flavor, so delicate. A sprinkle of balsamic pearls gives a tangy flavor.

On this Sunday evening I would try the pizza called Carbonara “Sorta”. It had a vodka sauce, mozzarella, fontina, buttered spicy peas, prosciutto and whipped ricotta. I had never tried peas on my pizza but, actually, they were a very nice addition.


What a surprise arriving to my table. They were called Crack Donuts. Crispy on the outside, with warm ricotta cheese and one had chocolate ricotta. A chocolate sauce for dipping. Greg, these are keepers👏👏

All in all the service was excellent, the conversation was fun.

TGIF have a great weekend.

Sirocco, Restaurant, Mediterranean, Rehoboth Beach, Breakfast, Happy Hour, Dinner, Bar, Delaware Beaches

One of the newest restaurants in Downtown Rehoboth Beach is Sirocco. 302-727-0317. It is inside the new Coast Rehoboth Beach Hotel on Rehoboth Ave.

They are opening Monday – Friday for breakfast from 7-11 a.m. On Saturday and Sunday breakfast is 7-10 a.m.

Dinner is from Wednesday through Sunday starting at 5. That could maybe change as the season gets underway.

Happy Hour is 5-7 at the bar only.

The Bar stays open Wednesday – Sunday from 5-10.

This is a Mediterranean restaurant. The simple; uncomplicated food of the region that is so healthy.

I have been several times to Sirocco. I like it because the food has been very good, the service attentive, a modern corner in Downtown Rehoboth Beach. Love the background music too.

Three for dinner, please. We did have a reservation.

A special Cream of Crab Soup which my friend said it was delicious. Very creamy with lots of crab meat.

Another soup ordered was the Lemon Chicken & Orzo. Herb roasted chicken, bone broth, farm veggies, stewed white beans and orzo. Orzo is a pasta shaped like a large grain of rice. Benedette thought it was very nice.

I really love scallops and Jeff decided to order them. Look how big they were. Served with wild mushroom risotto, charred pepper, asparagus, Parmigiano Reggiano and fresh basil oil.

I like my lamb chops medium rare but Benedette likes them medium. They looked so good and I have had them before and they really are. They served them with a warm couscous salad, grilled artichokes, roasted eggplant and mint gremolata. FYI Gremolata is a green sauce made of chopped parsley, lemon zest and garlic.

My dish was one that I pretty much order it any restaurant that may serve it whole. The beautiful Branzino. It is the European seabass. Sirocco does a great job with a stunning presentation.

Whole roasted, grilled lemon and fresh rosemary and thyme and roasted tomato salad. You had to be there to really appreciate it.

I eat a whole fish like a cat. I get right into it, just like I pick my crabs. So much fun. I do get compliments. I am not kidding.?

So while we still have free parking and the masses are not here, check out the Downtown restaurants and Sirocco is a good one to start with.

Have a beautiful spring day.
