This trip was to celebrate my friend's wedding. We became good friends while we were living in Germany. I did not know what to expect cities change over the years. I must say Troy has a wonderful farmer's market. I was impressed with the variety of vendors and food. I brought home a Stevia plant, homemade marshmallows and even my smoked mozzarella made it through security.
We had breakfast a small local joint call Lansingburgh Cafe. A very cosy place. I had the Eggs Benedict and it was very good. They used real ham not Canadian Bacon, the potatoes were great.
I ordered the fish and chips and the batter was wonderful. The batter was crispy and amber in color and you could taste the porter in the batter. Fried to perfection. Dessert was a very hard decision, Porter Chocolate Cake or Caramel Apple Dumpling. the dumpling won out. It was a great choice the apple was firm and did not fall apart when you cut into it. The crust was as flaky and buttery, and the caramel was light and sweet.
