MONDAY’S DINING WOES SOLVED

Menu big on flavor, portions at new food wagon in Hadlock

It’s the small but mighty — as in mighty tasty — details that distinguish the area’s latest local food trailer.

Scan A&H Curbside Grill’s menu and indulgent add-ons like bacon jam, creamy avocado vinaigrette, and mango salsa will make it worth the drive to beat the Monday restaurant blues, when no one seems to be open.

The main attractions aren’t bad, either. The wild-caught salmon tacos are owner Ashley Hutchins’ favorites, and they source from the local authority on all things seafood, Key City Fish.

Hutchins insists on grass-fed beef to form whopping half-pound burgers. Homemade banana cheesecake sells out fast, if you have room to try dessert.

The magic is happening at 10565 Rhody Drive, just past Carl’s Building Supply if you’re headed toward Chimacum.

“Our first day was Thursday two weeks ago,” Hutchins said on the 14-day anniversary of their grand opening.

The food trailer is Hutchins’ and her husband Tobias’  first foray into running a restaurant, but she’s no stranger to the business. She worked at the beloved and now closed Scampi and Halibuts Seafood Grill in Port Hadlock for eight years.

One of their former chefs helped Hutchins develop her menu. And while there are some twists to the classic favorites, the tacos and seafood stew should satisfy folks who miss the seafood restaurant, she said.

Hutchins plans to have weekly specials in addition to the standard menu. She’s toying with tikka marsala, gyros, and Thai peanut slaw with ahi ahi tuna, for example.

Half-pound grass-fed burgers start at $12.99 with a choice of fries, cup of chowder, coconut rice, or a garden salad. Hutchins suggests calling ahead if you’re in a hurry because they take a little longer than average to cook; from local reviews it seems they’ll be well worth the wait.

Right now A&H is open four days a week; Sunday/Monday, and Thursday/Friday. The kitchen is open from 11:30 a.m. to 8 p.m., and takeout is available.

Cash and credit card are accepted, and menu updates can found on the official Facebook page; search for “A&H Curbside Grill.”

And yes, the letters stand for something, in this case Hutchins’ two children, Aiden and Hannah.

Veggie options and children’s menu also available at facebook.com/ahcurbside/menu.

For to-go orders, call 360-774-0323.
