When we're in Newport and it's lunchtime, we usually stick with one of a couple options. Yes, we're in a rut, but it's a most tasty -- and reliable -- rut.
This time I was craving a good burger, so it was off to Saffron Salmon. I usually choose one of their seafood items and can't recall ever trying their burgers. This visit, I ordered the Michael Burger -- a quarter-pound of juicy, flavorful ground beef (there's also a half-pound version) topped with cheddar cheese and crispy bacon and a cup of tangy-sweet barbecue sauce to "gild the lily. I also added red onion slices for an incredible taste treat. The side of thin, crispy fries was equally scrumptious.
My wife went for the fish-n-chips. Three large filets of panko-crusted cod, served with fries and an Asian-style cole slaw. Yummy and filling -- we actually took one filet with us and had it along with crab cakes for dinner that evening.
Unfortunately we were too stuffed for dessert. A couple at a neighboring table was enjoying a berry cobbler with ice cream that looked very enticing. The looks on their faces made it apparent that it tasted as good as it looked. Maybe next time!
