Pedro’s Mexican Restaurant

Last week my two friends, sister, and I went for an early dinner to Pedro’s Mexican Restaurant before work. Pedro’s is located just outside of the port and is in Kennebunk. It offers fresh Mexican food and during happy hour you can get tacos for $2-4 apiece. The decor is festive and during the summer local bands play outside. I went with the small plate of nachos with chicken and it cost $12. The added chicken was not enough to justify the $4 price increase so I would suggest doing without. The guacamole was delicious and the chips are made in house. You can also get a large order of nachos which is perfect to split as an appetizer for 3-4 people.  My companions were also pleased with their meals and got the quesadilla, burrito, and chimichanga con pollo.  All the portions were satisfying and reasonably priced.  I don’t think you can go wrong when ordering!

After dinner we ordered a plate of churros for dessert which cost $6 for 3 on a plate.  THEY WERE AMAZING.  Basically homemade donuts topped with cinnamon and sugar and served with fresh whipped cream and chocolate sauce.  I am not joking when I say next time I am ordering a plate for myself.  They were so addictive we ordered a second plate while we were waiting to pay.  I would have taken a picture, but as soon as they arrived we quickly ate them… sorry!

Rococo Artisan Ice Cream

Last weekend I read an article that dubbed Rococo Artisan Ice Cream sixth in the United States and decided I had to try it out for myself.  Rococo is located in Kennebunkport, right next to Wicked Tails, and is in a small space with a couple of benches out front.  When I walked in the workers were all smiles and friendly offered up tastes of the ice creams.

The glass cases present the ice cream almost as if they were gelato, and the flavors strayed far from the traditional chocolate and vanilla.  After much debate, I selected the salty sweet creme and nutella cranberry.  My sister went with the horchata rum cake and dark chocolate.  The ice cream was so smooth and creamy, and when it melted the consistency was just like soft serve.  My favorite flavors were the salty sweet cream, which almost had a salted caramel flavor, and the rum cake, although next time I am going to have to try the whoopie pie!   The average price of a cone is around five dollars, but the quality of the ice cream speaks for itself.  If you find yourself in an ice cream rut and want to expand your dessert palate definitely head over to Rococo.  I’d suggest going earlier rather than later because it is such a small building, enjoy!

UPDATE: I tried the Maine Whoopie Pie flavor… and it was amazing!!! The best scoop of ice cream I have had in a long time.

Wicked Tails

Today I had an early dinner before work and tested the new takeout restaurant in Kennebunkport, Wicked Tails.  This small place has been open for three weeks, and has a bigger sister in Cape Porpoise named The Wayfarer.  Both establishments have delicious food and very friendly staff!

I asked the girl working here whether I should go with the lobster roll or lobster poutine and she recommended the latter so I took her word.  The french fries were cooked perfectly and had a lot of salt, which is a good thing in my book.  Cheese curds and lobster gravy (aka lobster bisque) topped the fries along with a few pieces of lobster claw meat.  Was it decadent? Yes.  But I would go back in a heartbeat.

The poutine cost around twelve dollars.  My sister enjoyed her meal as well and went with the sliders and Old Bay seasoned fries.  It cost eleven dollars.  The server was even kind enough to put Old Bay on top of my poutine when she heard me remark how much I like the flavor.

I would definitely recommend Wicked Tails for its quick service, prime location, kind staff, and delicious food!
