A View, Perhaps? Part One.

Welcome to the end of the world.  Or, at least, one of many.  I will try, in vain, again, to get some one other than my Mom pumped up about Alaska.  This mean you, less-than-thrilled Eat AR blog readers.  Tough crowd.  Jeeze. 

I mean, okay, I get it.  It's not Arkansas.  However, I will shamelessly whine, "but... it's Alaska."  ALASKA.  And it ranks right up there with New Zealand, in terms of beauty.  Wouldn't you enjoy a paper in a steamy hot tub with a view for which there are no words?

But enough of that, let's talk about this fabulous restuarant called Land's End.  Aptly named for being perched right on the end of the Homer Spit (a little brain food: it's the longest spit in the world).  The hot tub pictured above is part of their hotel.

Onto the food.  Then we dance.

Hot crab and artichoke dip.  Lots of crab, I know.  I had to eat my supply for a year in 6 days.

Halibut fish and chips.  May I just say that it is NOT THE SAME without Malt Vinegar.  Mmm... malty.

Mermaid, shipping and fishing themes repeat throughout.  Obviously.

And, finally...

 Eat, drink, dance and be merry.  It's hard not be merry when you're surrounded by a 180 degree view of snow-capped peaks and ocean, while eating delicious, fresh and best of all, local seafood.  More to come.

    While these fish may not be as aesthetically pleasing to the eye as bright, silvery King Salmon, do not be fooled (not that you are) by their somewhat monstrous appearance.  They are delicious!!!

  • Crab Legs and Such...

    Alright, alright.  So, you didn't take the bait (I know the pun is hilarious) with the 110 lbs of King salmon, so I'll try a different angle.  Let's talk food.  Served in Alaskan restaurants.

  • Here, Fishey - Fish.

      Fair warning to all: prepare to be inundated.  I have returned from Alaska with a little bit of everything- killer stories, killer food, killer shots and most importantly, killer fishing.  It is my vain hope that I will not overwhelm you.  But please consider that the sheer vastness of AK is difficult to abbreviate.

    Wait! Postpone tax reform and everything else for a while longer because the Senate is going to try to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act one more time before September ends and while it can do it with the votes of only 50 senators.
