We were headed to the airport after 5 great days in Anchorage. Knowing that we would be facing a 3 hour flight back to Seattle with only airplane food for dinner, my colleague talked to some local folks about where we might get some amazing food to take with us. He was told that the calimari at Jens' was worth the stop on the way to the airport. We arrived there in between lunch and dinner and the cooks were prepping for dinner rush. Rather than turn us away, the staff worked out so we could get some orders of the calimari appetizer to go. In less time that it takes to drink a glass of water and salivate over the full menu and wine list, we had our food and were back on the road. I couldn't resist opening the box while in the car. I couldn't resist taking one bite. I couldn't resist wolfing the whole thing down and using the thoughtfully provided bread to sop up every speck of sauce in the to-go box. The best calimari preparation I have had. Thick strips of fork tender squid with a whisper coat of flour to help the creamy sauce stick. I was in heaven. Needless to say - I had nothing but a memory for the long flight home.
