Good Food in Cornwall

Wynette: We have been back from trip a little over a week but want to add a few things that didn’t make the blog earlier.  So here goes …

Cornwall is surrounded on two sides by the Atlantic Ocean, so fresh seafood is plentiful and we ate lots of it. Many places (especially the museums and stately homes and garden restaurants) made a point to mention that they serve fresh local food.  We liked that.

We ate in some fantastic restaurants in Cornwall and want to mention them:

Sam’s, 20 Fore Street, Fowey, Cornwall, PL23-1AQ, Tel 01726-832273  www.samsfowey.co.uk We had great fun sharing a HUGE delicious bouillabaisse .

Hunkydory Restaurant & Bar, 46 Arwenack Street, Falmouth, Cornwall, www.hunkydoryfalmouth.co.uk.  We tried to go to The Seafood Bar but it was full and we didn’t have reservations so ended up at nearby Hunkydory, another place recommended in our guidebook.  We were not disappointed.  The food was delicious and I regretted I didn’t have my camera with me to take a picture, the food was gorgeous and colorful, a work of art.  (Not quite as literally as in Art’s Deli in Studio City, California, where “every sandwich is a work of Art“.)

The Seafood Bar, Quay Street, Falmouth, Cornwall, Tel 315129:  We were careful to make reservations the next night so we could eat at The Seafood Bar.  Turned out not to be nearly as crowded as the night before when we couldn’t get in. The owner Kerry Duffield told us she bought the restaurant 3 years ago after working there the previous 8 years. The previous owner owned it 30 years. It’s a tiny little place just off the main street above the harbor in Falmouth.  The food was exceptional. We shared a seafood chowder appetizer and then each had a fish main course; the fish was prepared perfectly.  The service was friendly and we had fun chatting with the owner and the woman who served us our food (and helped me find my umbrella when I had to go back for it).
