On the way back from the wedding, we just had to stop in at Duckfat in Portland, ME to see what all the fuss is about. Receiving a lot of buzz from all sorts of publications (i.e. Food and Wine, Travel and Leisure, Martha Stewart and Oprah, to name a few) this quirky little spot attracts quite the crowd. Arriving around 1 PM, we waited about 20 minutes for two seats along the wall in the dimly lit and very cozy dining room, which had walls that were coated with quirky magnetic poetry, providing endless amounts of fun while we waited.
We placed our order and went for what they are most famous for - large fries and a vanilla milkshake (an obvious healthy choice, of course). After playing with the magnetic poetry for a bit, a tall cone of golden, salty fries was placed in front of us, accompanied by a cute, little glass jar of truffle ketchup.

While I think that there's a big world of food and restaurants out there to experience, should I find myself in Portland again, I would certainly return for the fries (and skip the milkshake).
