Alaska was fun but now I am in Mexico. However, before I move on and start blogging about taco’s, enchiladas, and cerveza I put together a little video of the best of the best from Alaska. Enjoy!

A Different BLT

Annebelles, Ketchikan from Anthony Anello on Vimeo.

My colleague Will gave me a tip one of his favorite sandwich in Ketchikan, the Halibut BLT. You can find this delicious sandwich at Annebelle’s Keg and Chowder House. I took a seat at the bar and had a great experience. I am not a huge bacon fan, I know, you can wipe the shock off your face. However, the bacon with the Halibut was not very over powering and it gave the sandwich really nice flavor. I also ordered a side of their famous chowder. The chowder was good but not as good as Cheers in Boston. The nice surprise at the end was there was a piece of bacon waiting for me at the bottom smothered in chowder. What a nice surprise. Thanks Will!

Fish House/Kechi Candies, Kechikan Alaska from Anthony Anello on Vimeo.

Of all the ports in Alaska I find I really like the town in Ketchikan. I had been there last year before heading over to Japan. There are a few places that I didn’t have time to go to in my last visit. One of those places was Fish House. I wanted to try their double salmon chowder and then asked the staff what else they recommend. The Chowder was good but I am still partial to Clam Chowder. The Halibut Tacos were really good recommendation. Glad I asked the staff for the recommendation. They were crispy and had a nice sauce to go with it.

After lunch I headed to Kechi Candies for some dessert. I am not even going to say anything and I’ll let the video do the talking.

Crab Cracker Seafood Bar – Ketchikan from Anthony Anello on Vimeo.

My last day in Alaska was a wet and cold day in Ketchikan. I decided to take a food tour and then do a walking tour around the town. I started back at Burger Queen and ordered another burger. This time got it cooked medium and it was really good. It lived up to the hype that it has been given. Looking forward to many more Burger Queen burgers when I am back here next summer. However, everyone else said I had to try the fish and chips in town. So instead of having ANOTHER burger I went searching around for some fish and chips. I found a little crab bar in a mall I walked into called the Crab Cracker Seafood Bar. There were 3 types of fish to choose from. The waitress recommended the Snapper…
