I just love watching “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” on TV, also known as Triple D! I am really hooked. Guy Fieri is so much fun. Now that three episodes have been taped here in Atlantic County (in Brigantine, Galloway and Atlantic City), my enthusiasm for Guy knows no bounds.
Shortly after Galloway’s Oyster Creek Inn was featured, we took visiting relatives there, and managed to sample both of the dishes (robust appetizers) that had been featured on DDD – Jersey Devil Shrimp and Clams Mexicali! The shrimp was spicy and delicious. The restaurant, which I first visited in 1975 (no kidding), was unchanged, despite having been flooded in 2012 by Hurricane Sandy to a depth of a foot above the floorboards.
What’s great about Triple D is that it is so GOOD NATURED! It’s not competitive. Everybody is having a good time. Chefs are featured in their own kitchens, doing things their own way.
Maybe I’m wrong in thinking of myself as a frustrated writer of book reviews. Maybe I should have been a restaurant critic. One on wheels, like Guy Fieri! I’m ready for a road trip!
