A Bite Out of Bay Days in Silver Bay- By Sarah K. Simon

Bay Days was just beginning and already kickin’ when I visited Silver Bay on Friday afternoon. I was a bit early for the event I had come to write about, so I took the opportuni­ty to wander around by the city hall venue. Various vendors had set up earlier and were selling crafts, goodies, and treasures. Some were even providing free trials of their ser­vices, such as the massage therapists who were getting event goers feeling loose and at ease going into the three-day celebration.

After walking through the aisles looking at all the wares, I followed my nose to the food trucks. Suddenly I was so very hungry, and I had a tough choice ahead of me. I did a circle looking at each food truck and every single one made me think “that looks good!” Na­cho Bizness was serving nachos, tacos, burri­tos, and more. I saw someone walking away from Sugarlicious with a slice of cheesecake that looked like a work of art. Baptism Riv­er Barbecue Company’s reputation precedes them and I knew that would be a great choice, too. Each of these and more were calling my name.

I am a sucker, however, for good fried rice and I decided to give Becky’s Oriental Foods a try. Becky’s has been setting up at Silver Bay Bay Days for about eight to ten years. Tony Elliot, of Duluth, was working the till and took my order. I asked him if business was good during Bay Days, and he smiled and said it sure was. As I found a spot to sit, I saw that I was not the only one that had cho­sen fried rice for lunch. Tony was right.

The eggroll, my friends, was crispy and per­fect. The fried rice had just the right amount of garlic (apologies, however, to those I inter­viewed afterwards). It was a lot of food. My husband got to have the rest (minus the wontons which were just too good to share) for dinner when I got home and agreed it was su­per tasty. Great job Becky’s Oriental Foods!

I hope everyone was able to have a bite or two out of all the foods offered at Bay Days. I sure wish I could have sampled more of the treats!
