Ok, for all you folks who ask about the Eastern Shore/Delmarva Penisula...
We were birdwatching with a club last weekend and broke off to do some antiquing and try the Exmore Diner.
Aside from the cigarette smoke, I highly recommend the place - hand cut french fries, shakes two people can share, excellent crab cake (different from MD. style, but good!) and swelling toads!
Swelling toads? Did she says "swelling toads!?" What the heck are "swelling toads?" I asked the same question. Turns out they are the cheek potion of the local puffer fish (not poisonous like the Japanese one). They are fried like shrimp and are about the smal size, but are a white delicatly flavor fish.
Adventures in eating.
