Hello Fam! Happy New Year! And welcome to our first blog post of 2023! Okay, so our first post this year was supposed to be a recap of last year and all the craziness that ensued, however it is proving to need a bit more time to write than originally planned. Trust me, last year left us with a lot to process! Haha. So in the meantime allow us to share with you a local gem found in the West Taghkanic Diner .
Funny we have passed this spot since we were little kids and I have no recollection of actually stopping in until Friday, January 13th 2023! Haha I do believe it was a stroke of great luck indeed!
Our friend was in town and we were looking to try a "new" brunch spot that none of us had been to yet. Jen mentioned "or we could even just go to a diner." Lightbulb! This was it!
We drove up to Ancram and in the distance easily spotted the infamous neon sign shining brightly against the threatening stormy sky!
We walked ourselves in and were seated promptly.
We perused the menu....
And made our decisions.... decisions which apparently also led to bro and I walking out of the house matching.
Anyway... out came... coffee... delicious coffee!
We decided to share the special of the day and a lil bowl of chili... just to warm us up for the main dishes!
Jen had the Farmers Breakfast.
Jenneka had the Pastrami Ruben Sandwich with a side of potatoes.
Jenneka was very happy with her choice! Hahah
Jared had the Smoked Half Chicken...
With barbecue sauce.
I had the Burnt Ends Hash.
We couldn't go without taking a silly sibling shot courtesy of Jen!
Now I will have to put a disclaimer in this post... if
you are looking for that traditional down and dirty, cheap, large portioned diner food... this is not the place for you. Rather, if you fancy an experience with a farm to table diner inspired/reimagined menu and a side of the most authentic old diner vibes....then my friend, you have hit the jackpot! This spot has some great allergy friendly options as well! Plus this diner has not only partnered with local farms but on days they are closed, cook, package and distribute food to people in need!!!! We can't wait to be back!
Until the next post,
