Side Dishes: Leftover Food News

Published November 11, 2009 at 5:44 a.m.

A 7 Nights comment last week had us worried — apparently Phuong’s Kitchen on North Avenue had gone dark. But fans of egg rolls, Vietnamese stews and burgers can breathe easy. According to owner Phuong Lam’s sister, Saphe, Lam “just had a baby on Friday.” After a brief maternity leave, the Vietnamese takeout will be back in business. — A.L.


Beginning this week, The Skinny Pancake in Montpelier will switch from “semi-service” to full service on Friday and Saturday nights; on those evenings, the eatery will serve cheese fondue in addition to crêpes. “[Sit-down dining] is what people want on a Friday or Saturday night,” owner Benjy Adler explains. “We can kind of flip the switch.”

Burlingtonians have access to fondue one more night per week — Thursday. But, at least for now, Montpelier residents have one perk Queen City residents don’t: The cheesy mixture served in the Capital City includes hard cider from Farnum Hill in place of kirsch. “Assuming it goes over well, we’ll make that change [in Burlington, too],” says Adler. “Any time we can figure out a way to go more local, we do it.” — S.P.


Speaking of going local ... on November 14, Applecheek Farm in Hyde Park continues its series of on-farm dinners. The lengthy menu includes homemade sausages, lots of apple dishes and music from an Irish sextet — one of whom played on the soundtrack of the movie Titanic. Call the farm (888-4482) to reserve a spot. — S.P.
