OMG, this sandwich.
Last week Luke and I got back from a beach trip to Chincoteague, Virgina. This was our second trip to Chincoteague, I’ll tell you all about it after I sort through the 29384297 pictures I took. In the meantime here’s a recap of the best meal we ate out while there – it was at this little road side stand called The Farmer’s Daughter.
Luke sent me a link to the yelp page a few weeks before our trip and we decided we had to eat there. It’s a road side stand with an outdoor counter and tables you can stand at.
Their menu changes depending on what’s available locally, but they have a decent selection of sandwiches and sides.
Everything we tried was amazing, and so, so fresh. It was a bit on the pricey side for Chincoteague but in my opinion the food was well worth the price and we’ll absolutely be going back next time we’re in Chincoteague (had we not just bought scallops to make for dinner the Coconut Glazed Scallops from the Specials menu would have 100% been my choice for lunch).
We got a small Fresh Grilled Peach Salad to split. The tomatoes and peaches were both super fresh and juicy and the tangy, sweet, lime/honey vinagrette was delicious!
Luke got a Stuffed Soft Shell Sandwich, which was a soft shell crab stuffed with blue crab meat and fried. While it looks highly questionable (having legs sticking out of my sandwich is normally disconcerting to me) I tried it and it was actually pretty good, Luke loved it.
I ordered the Shrimp Po-Boy. The shrimp tasted super fresh, with a really light breading (sometimes I think fried shrimp loose their taste and just taste fried, these were a perfect balance), lemon aoli, and cabbage slaw with wasabi mayo on a toasted hoagie roll. It was sooooo delicious, a perfect blend of crispy, juicy shrimp, crunchy cabbage, and tangy aoli. I added a few drizzles of sriracha for an extra kick of spice and it was AMAZING!
The only thing I wasn’t blown away by was the Pina Colada Lemonade. Don’t get me wrong, it was a good lemonade, but I didn’t really get much coconut flavor, which was disappointing since it’s one of my favorite flavors.
Bottom line, if you find yourself in Chincoteague you should absolutely stop by The Farmer’s Daughter, it’s close to the beach and a convenient spot for lunch.
