5. Count me in

I just went on my semiannual trip to Trader Joe's in Portland Maine and bought a cooler full of their pork dumplings.

I don't eat a lot of meat, but I could've eaten it all...

Sauce = teriyaki, oyster, sriracha

Yum

7. COOL!

Heading to Portland (late this week, after Portsmouth and Providence,) so suggestions for places to eat and things to do appreciated. (Saving Trader Joe's for my next return to DC suburb.)

14. If you go by Southeastern Mass.

Fall River, MA (my hometown) has an excellent Chinese restaurant called Mee Sum on South Main Street, try a Chow Mein sandwich. When I went back there a few years ago for a visit, they also had huge egg rolls.

You might also want to try a chourico sandwich, (Portuguese sausage, think Italian sausage spiced with paprika). Marcucci's is awesome (not fancy, but good eats)

You can also visit the Battleship Massachusetts and the Marine Museum
https://www.battleshipcove.org/

There's also a restaurant called the Cove near the battleship, gets good reviews-have fun!

30. Just_Vote_Dem, you've saved my LIFE!

Went to Mee Sum for 'lunch' today, after searching for 'my' Portuguese places; learned they're closed Tuesday!

SO, have Chow Mein sandwich leftover for dinner TOO!

THANKS SO MUCH!!!

26. Sushi would be lovely.

However, if I needed to win on how much I could eat Sushimi would be better as rice fills you up to fast. Or possibly jello.
