A Great Amish Buffet

Amish BuggyA few posts ago I promised a brief review of the restaurant that I went to in Lancaster last weekend. The restaurant was an Amish buffet called The Family Cupboard. You can also order meals, but we went for the buffet. Most buffets are basically a smorgasbord of mediocre food. We were leery that this would be the same. We had picked it out randomly from the Internet.

When we walked in and saw that there was a fair number of Amish/Mennonite folks eating there, we became more confident that the food would be good. As it turns out, it was really good. I went back for three plates plus dessert. There was a delicious meatloaf, buttered noodles that were clearly homemade and definately from a PA Dutch/German recipe. These sat alongside glazed ham, stuffing and seafood, pasta lima beans and on and on. The salad bar was your usual salad bar. I was glad to see it was all fresh and crispy, but what really made it special was a delicious house dressing.

For dessert, there was Turkey Hill ice cream as well as an assortment of desserts, but but what really caught my attention was the pies. I had a piece of pecan pie (my favorite) which wasn’t so great, but I went back for another┬ápiece and selected shoo-fly pie. It was delicious!

You can view their menu and get directions at FamilyCupboard.com.

A real sign that New Orleans is getting back on it’s feet after the destruction caused by Hurricane Katrina is that Emeril Lagasse’s restaurants have announced an reopening schedule. The first one will reopen in December.

Check out the details here.

Jesse James, restauranteur

I just read in the Emerils Blog that Jesse James (of Monster Garage on Discovery Channel and proprietor of West Coast Choppers) is opening a burger joint in Long Beach, CA. To answer the obvious questions, yes the burgers will be shaped like iron crosses and yes the waitresses will all have tattoos. It will be called Cisco Burgers.
