On the Road Dining Review: Raleigh/Durham

I have something to share with you.  

Now that I have settled into my new job, I have been visiting Raleigh a lot more often. Here are the spots I visited during this trip!

Poole’s
I have waited to try this spot for weeks.  On my last trip I landed after 10pm so no dinner for me.  This time I finished work around 6pm and headed downtown for dinner.  I was told by all my colleagues how I had to try the very addictive macaroni and cheese.  They were right!  I started with an amazing beet salad, attempted to finish the huge dish of Mac n’ cheese with no success but left very happy!

Beasley’s
I decided to ask the bartender at Poole’s if I should eat dessert there or walk to Beasley’s, another AC restaurant.  He suggested a short walk for a great piece of cheesecake.  Not only was it great but I will return to try the chicken and waffles!

Bo’s Kitchen – Korean Street Food
I love food trucks.  They are super convenient when work is too hectic to get in the car and they offer amazing food.  Plus, if I am hungry enough, I can sample something from a few different trucks.  This time I stopped by the Korean street food truck and loved it. I tried All about BO – Mandu, Meat, and Rice in one plate.  Hope they are by the office again soon. Those korean dumplings are great!!

Positalia
A new italian spot opened near our office.  Nothing fancy.  Choose your pasta, sauce and toppings at the counter and your meal is ready.  I am a bit picky when it comes to italian but for something fast, convenient, inexpensive and oh yeah, not a national chain, this works!

Rise
I have learned over the years to eat breakfast while on the road.  And Rise was on the way from my hotel to the office.  Chicken biscuit and a potato cake!!  Awesome food and quite convenient!  Next time I’ll try the donuts!
