Twin Seafood Market & Concord Teacakes, Concord, Ma

Summer has finally arrived and Carol and I joined one of these lovely, warm and sunny days at Walden Pond. After half a day of sunning, swimming and reading, it was time for a late lunch, so we took a short drive to Twin Seafood Market in West Concord.

On the right hand side is the retail fish market, where you can admire and purchase the day’s seafood offerings (The prices seem to be on the high side). The left side has a handful of table where you can eat from a simple menu of sandwiches, salads, chowders and seafood (grilled, broiled, fried or stuffed).

I had a fish sandwich ($9), which was 3 decent sized pieces of flakey cod on a grilled roll. I opted for the large crispy onion rings (additional $1) instead of fries; the requisite tiny container of coleslaw was forgettable. It was a decent sandwich, but for my money, Courthouse Seafood in Cambridge wins.

Carol had grilled salmon on a green salad ($10). It was a generous piece of well seasoned salmon, but overcooked for my taste. She seemed to like it.

After lunch, we strolled next door to Concord Teacakes and had scones ($1.5). My cinnamon scone had nice height, but was dry and in dire need of clotted cream and jam. I noticed the cookies were from Lakota in Arlington.
