Dairy Dome: New Dishes

Anyone who has read my blog knows that I am a fan of the Dairy Dome, a local restaurant in Stoneham. I have posted numerous times about this place.

Though long known for being an ice cream parlor, this year the restaurant greatly its offerings to include many different and delicious foods. I have posted before about many of those new dishes. Yet they have continued to add more and more to their menu. So I am back to tell you about some of what is new.

They now carry a homemade flatbread, like a thicker type of pita bread. I love good bread and this is absolutely delicious. You can get an over-stuffed sandwich or even a flatbread pizza. I especially liked the Chicken Cordon Bleu flatbread sandwich ($6.95), which was loaded with tender chicken, cheese and ham. This was quite a large sandwich and sure to satisfy the biggest of appetites. As for new sandwiches, they also have six different grilled paninis ($6.45).

Need something easy to feed your family? Dairy Dome has had family-sized dinners for some time. But now they have some new ones, including a homemade shepherd’s pie and chicken pot pie. They are big enough to feed at least four people and cost less than $15 each. You bring them home, just pop them into the oven and soon you will enjoy. I have had both and did enjoy them.

With winter here, a good hot soup or chowder can really satisfy too. Dairy Dome has corn, which you can get in a fresh bread bowl with melted cheese atop it. The cheese was a nice touch and the chowder is very good. I have always enjoyed corn chowder and this was certainly a good dish.

They even make a variety of homemade pies, from apple to pecan, which are great for the holidays. The chocolate cream pie is decadently delicious. The pies are reasonably priced under $20, and should feed plenty of people. Stop by and pick up a pie for the holidays. Or order ahead to be sure you can get what you want.

Dairy Dome remains a very good choice for lunch, dinner, or takeout.
