I travel for work. I eat for fun.

Craft 260, Fairfield, CT

As Two Roads Brewing is a considered a retail outlet and has to close at 9pm per Connecticut state law, we needed to find somewhere else to grab a few more beers and some grub last Friday night. My friend Mark wisely suggested the brand new Craft 260 beer bar and bistro a few miles down the road. Here’s a quick look…

They’re currently running 12 taps at Craft 260 with a nice selection of craft beer, in both style and region…

However, I was even more impressed with their food menu!

Nachos topped with smoked and pulled chicken thighs, a Vermont white cheddar sauce and house made chimichurri…

As a wing guy, I can assure you their buttermilk fried chicken wings are pretty incredible! These were the agave sesame wings, but the stand out flavor was the sriracha buffalo…

Crisped Brussels sprouts with local apple, toasted pecans and gorgonzola cheese with a warm bacon & dijon vinaigrette…

image

For dessert I went with a whiskey, Kahlua and espresso stout cocktail…

Yet another reason to hop on Metro-North and make the one hour trip to this sleepy seaside town that’s quickly becoming Connecticut’s new culinary capital!

The perfect candy for Easter yesterday… the new Hi-Chew Mini from Japan!

It’s the pretty much same concept where the candy companies here take their popular soft chew brands, say like Starburst, and turn them into jelly beans. However, with these Minis they capture the original Hi-Chew flavors perfectly inside the thin candy coating!

Calicut Paragon, Dubai

Calicut Paragon was recommended to me right here on Tumblr in my comments section, although I can’t figure out by who anymore. Thanks and apologies to whoever it was who gave me the tip!

Specializing in South Indian seafood, the joint had long lines but they moved rather quickly. We only had to wait about 20 minutes even though we arrived at 9:30pm, prime time for dinner in Dubai. Here’s a look…

The house specialty, grilled garlic and chilli Tawa fish…

Sesame cauliflower, which was incredible…

Shrimp in coconut curry with tarragon, if I remember correctly…

Mutton curry…

Masala fried chicken, bone-in, with pickled onion…

And all the fresh baked nan you could eat…

This whole meal, with two large bottles of water, was only $27!

New From MOS Burger Japan - April 2014

The new Rich MOS Cheeseburger with Gorgonzola Sauce…

And a new MOS Teriyaki Burger…

Now topped with a corn tempura patty…

I always love the care that MOS puts into the photography, design and detail of their promotional campaigns when launching new menu items. They’re meticulous in the explanations as well!

I hope these are still available when I’m back in Tokyo in June!
