Hand-held meals are the ultimate travel food: you can stay mobile, eat with locals and keep your other hand on your iPhone, daypack or toddler. So roll up your sleeves and dig into scallops de la mer from Fundy Restaurant in Digby, because...
Your trip is too short to wait for a table!
If you blinked, you could miss the scallop capital of Canada, a modest fishing village near the province’s northwestern tip. But it’s worth stopping for the sweet and super-fresh medallions of the sea that are fished inshore here and prepared every way imaginable—from deep-fried to poached, from gourmet to grab-and-go.
At the friendly, seaside Fundy Restaurant, the house specialty is Digby scallops wrapped in bacon, fried to a crisp and served on a scallop shell. Kick back and enjoy the stunning views over the Annapolis Valley and the sparkling sea.
