Guys. This is my fourth week of What I Ate Wednesday! I feel like that’s quite an accomplishment seeing I usually go through each day not even realizing what is on my fork….
Thanks for the LinkUp Jenn!
So since I feel like all I did this past weekend was eat or drink, I think the only appropriate way to recap all these delicious treats is through one delicious looking blog post.
Although the first thing I ate on island was a mint chip ice cream with rainbow
sprinkles jimmies, I was far too hungry, excited, overjoyed, to document with a photo. And it was 10 o’clock at night. So believe me when I say it was the most gorgeous looking ice cream you ever did see. The Juice Bar is unlike any other.
The Green: I honestly cannot get enough of this place. I think that because this was the first health food/granola loving restaurant on island, I became a diehard fan. It is SEVERELY overpriced, but it is so delicious, fresh, and totally made to order, that I can’t complain.
I came here both Saturday and Sunday morning after my run for my go-to smoothie: blueberries, banana, almond milk, whey protein.
Saturday morning afternoon, BF and I stopped by after our long run. I think we finished running around 1030, so by the time we got out here, we decided this would be more of breakfast and lunch. How you say, brunch. Instead of sticking with just a smoothie (go with what you know people), we both opted to get a breakfast burrito too in attempt to avoid the hanger! #LivingOnTheWildSide
I am obviously beyond particular when it comes to eating so nothing upsets me more than an overstuffed, super greasy, breakfast wrap. While I tried to pull a fast one on the staff and make my own wrap, I was told I could modify, not create. #NoFun
I got their breakfast burrito no cheese, no sour cream, no rice, no tomatoes, no olives. So basically I had eggs, salsa, black beans, and pico in a wheat wrap. Only downside – no egg whites?!? Is that so much to ask!? Regardless the burrito was AH-MAZE-ING. BF got the actual breakfast burrito and loved it too.
It wasn’t greasy, eggs were pretty light and fluffy, and it had some serious staying power. #HangerAvoided
So let me preface this with the fact I’ve only been to the brewery before during the off season. Never at Figawi. Having said that, holy sh!t.
The brewery is actually a super cool place. Not only does it have a brewery on site, it also has a distillery (Triple Eight) and a winery (Nantucket Vineyard). BF’s family and I actually went on a tour last summer (eh it was okay), but it’s a really fun place that offers a TON of outdoor seating, live music, and food trucks.
When we got to the brewery (around 12) the line to get in was out the driveway, wrapping down the main road. I figured it was just backed up due to mass entry, but soon realized the brewery was at capacity. One in for one out. It opened at 11… #IsThis College?
We got in a little after 1, and headed straight into another line to get some beers. We thought we were totally outsmarting everyone by ordering 6 beers and a 12 pack. Ingenious. It was not. We were told we can’t open the 12 pack on brewery grounds so that was an epic fail, but hey at least we had beers for later?
Cisco makes my favorite beer – Grey Lady. While I’m not a big beer drinker (vodka sodas hayyyy), it is light enough that I can drink and get a little bit of a buzz on before I feel totally full.
We spent the entire day outside,
crushing sipping our brews, convincing other people to go wait in line for us (love you friends!), and enjoying the live music.
If you are going to the brewery over a holiday weekend beware it will be packed. You honestly don’t notice until you try to get more booze or go to the bathroom. It’s really the lines that make you realize how busy the place is.
I did not partake in food truck eating, however I hear the oysters and raw bar are to die for (literally, I’m allergic to shellfish so I’d die), and Millie’s (another ACK favorite of mine) are delicious for the mid-day munchies.
LOLA Burger: On the recommendation of my mother, BF and I hit up this burger joint for dinner Saturday. Anticipating a huge wait we headed out around 7 but were pretty surprised when we got seats right away at the bar. It’s a really laid back restaurant that offers take out as well. Sister restaurant to Lo/La 41 (sushi) on island.
Although my usual go-to is a veggie burger, I had no such option at LOLA. I ended up going with the Tuna Burger with Wasabi Mayo, Sunomono, and Soy Ginger Sauce on the side. Because my stomach is so sensitive I usually get all the condiments on the side. I didn’t add any to my burger which was a.ok with me since it was perfectly seasoned and grilled.
Um yeah. I don’t really know what else to say about it. I just don’t have words. It was incredible. Perfect sized portions. And it was on an English Muffin instead of a bun. Love that.
BF had the Lamb Burger with Creamy Feta, Harissa & Arugula based on the bartenders suggestion. He was not disappointed. His truffle friends and my regular fries were devoured.
I will say, it was pretty pricey, but then again it is a gourmet burger. And it’s Nantucket. So there’s that.
Something Natural: My family has been coming here for as long as I can remember. We would always call in our order and pick them up on the way to the beach in the summer. #Sentimental
Best sandwiches on island. By far.
I love that they also offer you the option of having a full or half sandwich. I got a half, which as you can tell, is still pretty massive. I got the Sprouts, Vegetables & Hummus half sandwich on 6 grain.
I have to come here at least once, every time I’m on island. I feel like this place gets me.
Oath Pizza: This is new to me. I’d be lying if I said I was looking for pizza. In actuality, I was looking for Juice Guys (RIP).
BF and I were a bit early for our ferry, so we decided to drop our bags and just wander down by the wharf. We weren’t sure if we should eat before the ferry, we weren’t really that hungry, but again, in hopes to avoid hanger during a car ride home, we decided why not split a pizza and salad. #TwistMyArm
The concept behind Oath is pretty interesting. It’s like an assembly line for pizza. A pizza subway if you will. They take out a crust, and go down the line where you can add whatever toppings you desire. They do have specialty pizzas that you can order but hi, I don’t know if we’ve met, but I’m picky – so I made
my our own.
Topped with sauce, shredded mozzarella, peppers, onions, spinach, olives. It was good! Glad we split the pie, because I probably could’ve eaten a whole one. I don’t know what portion control is.
While it was tasty, it was pretty generic. I prefer my own homemade dough #Diva
And again I couldn’t refrain and made another trip to The Juice Bar. And guess what. I didn’t take a picture. Because I was too hungry, and it’s just that good. You guessed it – mint chip with jimmies : )
And that leads us up to Monday night where BF and I crafted our own pizzas. Meat for him. Veggies for her.
What is your go-to smoothie?
What was the best thing you ate this past weekend?
Jimmies or Sprinkles? BF calls them sprinkles, but I’m a firm believer that only chocolate are sprinkles, where rainbow are jimmies…
Do you go all out on vacation or try to maintain a regular diet? I like to think I do both, but I’m definitely more likely to indulge on vacation. And I mean… look at that food…
