About a month ago, I attended a media dinner at the recently opened Captain’s Boil which is located at 671 College St. This is the 5th location for this restaurant chain, which I know will continue to grow as it’s such a fun concept. The location is uniquely design to resemble the hull of a ship and I must admit that the decor caught my attention.

The invitation to this event also caught my attention as I simply adore seafood. Plus I liked the idea of eating seafood in Little Italy!! I don’t know why …but I love all varieties of seafood – lobsters, oysters, mussels, shrimp, clams etc.

The concept at this restaurant is that you eat with your hands. Yes – gloves are provided.

Cute bibs are provided too and I’m proud to announce that I left the event with a white shirt and not a stained shirt!!

As for the food:

Step 1: You choose your catch: Snow Crab Legs, Lobster, Mussels,Clams, Chicken Slices, Shrimp, Crawfish, King Crab Leg or Dungeness Crab

Step 2: Choose Your Flavour: Cajun Cajun, Lemon Pepper, Captain’s Boil, Garlic Sauce

Step 3: Choose Your Heat: Non Spicy, Mild, Medium, Fire. (I chose the Medium and it certainly had heat to it).

There’s also  a huge list of side dishes to choose from: Okra, Lotus Root, Sausage, Corn, French Fries, Sausage etc.

Before you know it, bags of hot seafood arrives at your table and you dig in with your hands (oh ya – there’s no plates). It’s messy but it’s fun!!

You are also provided with lime, salt and pepper in little containers. I’ve never seen this before and was eager to try it. I will now continue to eat seafood with this idea. Thanks Captain’s Boil!

I must be living in a cave as I’ve only discovered this eatery this year!! This blog post is not going to be lengthy as I’ve only had ONE thing from Bitondo’s but that one item is indeed very blog worthy.

Bitondo’s Pizzeria is located in Little Italy and is famous for their slices, sandwiches, panzerotti & pies. The space can be described as an ageless eatery with simple decor but that doesn’t seem to bother me as I’m generally inhaling my panzerotti in the car!!

I keep returning and ordering the same thing. (which is generally how I roll, when I find something I like).  Here’s a few words that would adequately describe this panzerotti: heaven, cheesy goodness, perfect and divine.

 I once posted the above photo on facebook and asked “where am I” and would you believe someone guessed correctly. I was super impressed!
Not only does Bitondo’s serve a wicked panzerotti, but they also have PacMan which always brings a smile to my face.
