Ocean City Eats: Dinner at Hooked

I came here with Will and friends on our first night in Ocean City for Labor Day weekend. They really got us "hooked" because we came here twice - once for dinner and once for brunch. We also had the advantage of experiencing both outdoor and indoor dining. The food here is excellent and the staff are on point.

Dining outdoors was slightly uncomfortable because it's just tables and benches, but it felt nice in some instances because you can feel the ocean breeze.

Hooked doesn't take reservations. It was suppose to be a lot longer, but somehow we worked our magic and was able to get a table  after waiting for about 10-15 minutes for a table of 8.

Will and I ordered an Orange Crush & Margarita. I really liked our drinks from Hooked because they tasted fresh and refreshing. Perfect for a summer night!

We started off with the Buttermilk Battered Calamari with spicy mayo & mico celery.  The calamari wa…

Another semester completed and I am feeling happy! More time for rest, blogging, cooking, gym, and some fun.

For the next few weeks or month, you will be seeing lots of overdue posts and all dating back from Labor Day weekend, since I've been really busy with work and school.

On Labor Day weekend - Will, some friends, and I returned to Ocean City, MD and this year, our first stop had to be back to On the Bay Seafood. It's the same laid back and fun environment!

We all ordered our own entree, but share the large dozen crabs.

I ordered the Homemade Crab Cake Sandwich with boardwalk fries and homemade Cole Slaw for sides. The homemade crab cake sandwich was delicious! The crab cakes were insanely good! The sandwich was really moist and tasty! The boardwalk fries  had a nice crunch and taste to it. I absolutely love the Cole slaw, possibly one of the best I've had so far.

Will ordered the Soft Shell Crab…

I've heard good things about Nan Xiang Dumpling House along with the fact that there's always a bit of a wait here especially during the dinner rush.

Will and I came here early on a Saturday evening around 6-6:30PM and it was about a 10-15 minute wait, not so bad because it gave us an opportunity to think about what we wanted to order. There's not much decor at Nan Xiang Dumpling House, but atmosphere is like your typical Shanghainese and Chinese restaurant - busy and etc. The restaurant is actually quite big and split into two dining areas.

So we ordered the following items -

I really enjoyed the pork soup dumplings, freshly made and hot! The soup inside the bun was just right and savory. One complaint is that they only give six soup dumplings, when some restaurants give you eight.

We also ordered the crab meat and pork soup dumplings , but I wasn't a fan of it and didn't like the the tas…

My sister, cousins, and I came here for dinner on a Thursday around 6PM and surprisingly, it was already getting crowded and busy. We came here mostly because it was a new spot at that opened up and plus my cousin is pescetarian so we wanted to take her somewhere she would be comfortable with.

The atmosphere is very lively, laid back, and fun. Seamore's is a good spot to check out if you or someone is a seafood lover or simply just love good food! The staff here are very friendly, enthusiastic, and helpful. You won't be disappointed.

We started off with drinks and we all got something different. I tried their cucumber mint drink(non-alcoholic) because it sounded really refreshing, but I wasn't too impressed with it because it tasted really bland. I felt that if it was more bubbly or sparkly it would taste and feel a lot better. Next time, I'll probably stick with the alcohol.

I ordered the Oh-Boy sandwic…
