Thai curry vs. Indian curry

I disagree (8 years later). I think that what I do not like about many Indian foods are the inclusion of cinnamon and/or cardamom.

need recs for acadia np (maine)

I'm going to have to agree with you both, after our visit, and retract everything I said. It was ridiculously overpriced and not at all amazing. I think they were just deluded by their love of Acadia. We ate there twice, once for a rehearsal dinner, and once after biking the trails. I agree with the posters above, pack a picnic lunch!!

I DREAM of oyster po'boys from New Orleans....and I'm with you on the buttered lobster roll.

"American Food"

I second that opinion, and I'm an Iowa girl. Frank's Red Hot is the best for wings.


You can't. I've tried. It's fine, but it isn't the same.

Wow. They seem to have requested fairly casual places. My family visited Acadia from Iowa. While lacking in upscale eateries in Iowa, we have fairly well-trained palates in our family. My family thoroughly enjoyed Jordan Pond's popovers, stew and views. In fact, they phoned in the middle of their meal to brag. It seemed to be a comfort-food kind of place, not gourmet by any means, which should fill the above request.
