Salt Air: Rehoboth Beach, DE

This is quickly becoming my one of my favorite spots in Rehoboth.  I probably shouldn’t talk about it or there will always be a wait.  They do take reservations, but they are not on open table.  I usually prefer to snag a few seats in the bar.

This stop in was for Happy Hour – they have half price apps and snacks in the bar and a few drink specials.  IMG_2163 This post is a little over due – so I was still in a Rosé drinking mood. And, ever since then, I have been searching for this wine – so if anyone finds it in the city, please leave a comment.  It is a very very dry rose – made from Cinsault, Grenache, Syrah grapes.  I found that it had a bright color and definitely noticed berry or fruity notes on the nose.   If you like dry wines – this one is super balanced and finishes very smooth.

We split a bunch of the apps that were on special.  IMG_2291The farm fresh crab deviled eggs.  These were great – they weren’t as crabby as the would have been here in Charm City, but let’s be real – who besides Baltimore really knows crabs?  They did not top it with Old Bay, but rather a jalepeño chip.

We also had this gorgeous cheese plate.  I liked the slate chalk board, so that they can write what the cheeses are right on the board.  Two of them were goat cheeses, but the Purple Haze was much softer and smoother than the Two Valley.  The third cheese was a very soft brie style cows milk cheese.  But, more importantly look at those “fixin’s”.  There were three types of crackers, mustard, berries, nuts, apples.  My favorite was the wine berries!  As I write this, I am not shoIMG_2162cked that my favorite was a berry that involved wine.

We also had Matt’s “Slower Lower” Scrapple Sliders.  I don’t think I have ever had scrapple before this.  Scrapple is pork that is ground and then mashed into a loaf, sliced and fried.  These guys serve there’s on tiny slider sized potato roll style buns and topped with a spicy mayo and and cabbage slaw.  I am glad these were on special – they were worth it for $5, not sure I would order them for $10.
