But I have to also admit that I travel with food. Not massive amounts of food - I don't carry sandwiches or packages of casserole or anything like that. I carry individual packages of Goldfish pretty much every time I travel. And I usually throw in something different - in Alaska, I had individual packs of Milanos, because they were on sale just before we left.
Even so, even with my strange eating habits (if you know me well, you know this about me), I can't live on only individual packages of Goldfish and Milanos. And I certainly can't expect the people I travel with to do that. So, in Alaska, we went out to eat a lot. And here are some of the places we went:
|Glacier Brewhouse - We lunched there, thankfully at the end of the obvious cruise ship-travellers, so the place went from crowded and loud to fairly quiet. Good brewhouse food, and amazing root beer and cream soda.|
|Uncle Joe's pizza was a lunch one day. The pizza was kind of mediocre, and the staff were kind of brusque. I'd skip it if you have another option.|
|Resurrection Roadhouse - connected to our hotel, the Seward Windsong Lodge. The food was fine, but the staff were hit-or-miss, and - frankly - the Salmon Bake was so much better... The views were good though.|
|The Cafe at the Denali Park Visitors center. The food was fine for a kind of basic medium-service joint, and the staff were decent. Basically, it was what you'd expect at a park location.|
So, there you have 'em, most of the places we ate in Alaska. We did also have dinner at Sullivan's Steakhouse in Anchorage - which was nicely high-end, with a waiter who tried really hard, even though he was obviously pretty green. We had quite decent pizza from Marino's delivered to our hotel room on our final night in Anchorage, too.
We had less decent pizza (which did have Elk meatballs on it) at Prospector's Pizza, and Christopher had an apparently flavorful breakfast sandwich from the Black Bear coffee shop in "Glitter Gulch" outside of the entrance to Denali park.
Add in some Goldfish and Milanos, and you've got pretty much everything you need to eat your way through Alaska.
