MIDDLE EASTERN VEGETARIAN FOOD AT YALLA IN BRATTLEBORO, VT

Yalla Sababa

Their restaurant on Main Street.

Yalla
Brattleboro, VT

Yalla is bringing fresh Middle Eastern vegetarian food to its customers on Main Street in Brattleboro, Vermont. All of their tasty pita bread is made in house. It's the star of their delicious dish the Yalla Sababa. It's a half or full pita sandwich stuffed with falafel, hummus, veggies and topped with tahini. You can also get it in a bowl with pita on the side.

Yalla also serves egg dishes like an herbed omelet. There's also Shakshuka, which is a spice tomato stew with a poached egg served with pita and salad on the side. You can also get their delicious Tzaziki and pita as a side. Stop by on Fridays for challah and babka.

MOUTH-WATERING BBQ AT MAINELY MEAT BBQ IN MAINE

Amazing outdoor eating area

Mainely Meat BBQ Dreamwood Hill

Shipyard Pumpkinhead

Pulled pork sandwich

Mainely Meat BBQ Dreamwood Hill

Bar Harbor, Maine

One of the best meals I recently enjoyed on a vacation to Bar Harbor was at Mainely Meat BBQ. This place is the real deal. We ate outside on their amazing patio. They have an outdoor bar (where there's Pumpkinhead on tap!) and corn hole set up for customers to enjoy. Be on the lookout for Sasquatch!

Mainely Meat's menu is packed with all of the best BBQ dishes. There's pulled pork, pulled turkey, chicken, a half or full rack of ribs. All of these entrees come with their amazing thick-cut french fries or a salad, mac & cheese or potato salad, coleslaw and beans. Since it is in Maine, they also offer a lobster roll and a boiled lobster dinner. There are also options for vegans and vegetarians like their house salad and vegan burger. Stop by in the summer and enjoy their many flavors of ice cream.

I LOVED their pulled pork sandwich. It's served on buttery Texas toast with a side of fries and a pickle. The Texas toast with the delicious pork and BBQ sauce is one mouth-watering combination. 

Check out Mainely Meat for an unforgettable meal the next time you're in Bar Harbor. It's right across from Pirate's Cove.

WHERE TO FIND KRISPY KREME IN NEW ENGLAND

Krispy Kreme bakery at Mohegan Sun

Yummy selection of donuts

Everyone LOVES Krispy Kreme, but in New England, the donuts can be tough to find. There used to be many locations in Massachusetts and Connecticut, but they closed more than 15 years ago. A new location opened in Maine a few years ago, but you guessed it, CLOSED. Dunkin Donuts sure does have a stranglehold on New England. there are two Krispy Kremes left. Both of them are in Mohegan Sun in Connecticut. There's one small store and one large, full bakery where you can see the glazed donuts come down the conveyor belt. They have both been there for more than a decade and are always busy, so let's hope they are here to stay!
