Posted on Wednesday, September 17, 2014

A cross-section of sponge candy can only hint at the ethereal weightlessness of the spun sugar within.

Catfish Dinner

These crusty strips of catfish are accompanied by wicked-good sweet onion rings. The hushpuppies that are part of every dinner are barely visible in the background.

Hot Hamburger

The 'hamburger' part of this hot hamburger is completely eclipsed by French fries and gravy. You will find it underneath the spuds and on top of the toast that is visible peeking out at the bottom.

Roadfood of the Day: Kumback Lunch - Perry, OK

Cinnamon Roll

Kumback Lunch cinnamon rolls are made every morning. While not huge and goopy, they have an enchanting frail glaze on top and are deeply satisfying.

Husband and wife team, Tim and Tammy Hagensen opened TNT's Diner back in 2007. More small town cafe than diner, it is located off the beaten path in a strip mall set back from the main road. When I first visited on a busy weekday evening back in the summer of 2010 I discovered that although it's not easy to find, that certainly didn't keep the customers away.

TNT's Diner specializes in Northern Midwest comfort food such as hot Beef and hot Turkey Sandwiches; with a smattering of local ethnic "German from Russia" and Scandinavian specialites including cabbage rolls and Swedish meatballs. Tammy Hagensen bakes all of the homemade pies herself.

The special of the day when I was there was potato klub. Klub are dense, heavy Scandinavian potato dumplings served with your choice of bacon or thick cut ham with a small tub of melted butter to dip at will, perfect for a frigid, winter heartland evening after a hard day's work on the farm. The meal comes with a choice of salad or soup. I chose the soup of the day, beer cheese soup, slightly thick and topped with croutons it packs a savory,sharp and hoppy jolt reminiscent of the beer cheese soup at the former Grainery at West Acres Mall in Fargo.

I topped my meal off with Sour Cream Raisin Pie. Less dense with a very subtle underlying hint of "sour", it still packed flavor loaded with nutmeg, vanilla and raisins. This northern midwest specialty would still deserve a high ranking honorary ribbon at any pie bake-off.

Unfortunately, some folks are too quick to dismiss North Dakota as a culinary wasteland. Although the pickings do seem slim , consider TNT's diner a Roadfood oasis in the sparse Northern Plains.

Roadfood of the Day: Top Dog - Portland, CT
Posted on Saturday, September 13, 2014

Dog Wagon

The trailer: a 1963 Airstream, reconfigured as a frankfurter. The car: a vintage Checker cab, which proprietor Andrea Spaulding's husband completely restored, down to a ticking meter inside. The cuisine: hot dogs and nothing but.

Burger Close Up

The burger maker asked if we wanted our cheeseburger whole or halved. We asked for the latter and took this lovely cross-section photo before digging in.

Pizzas are cooked briefly in a roaring wood-fired oven, emerging with crust that is relatively lightweight – as much crunch as chew – albeit sturdy enough not to wilt even under seas of melty cheese. Its edge bears the brand of a high-temperature bake in the form of a few char marks on the puffy parts. Toppings range from basic margherita to such wonders as pistachio pesto topped with mozzarella (made here twice daily) and just enough crème fraiche to elevate the eating experience into wanton indulgence. We enjoyed a special of locally made feta along with fresh okra and a puree of roasted garlic and corn as well as the awesome "pork trifecta" of house-made sausage, pepperoni and smoked bacon.

Friday Fish Fry

McPartlan's serves a quintessential WNY Friday fish fry. French fries are more traditional, but we love McPartlan's German potato salad.
