On the Road Eats: Raleigh/Durham

I have something to share with you.  

I love it here.  The poeple are nice.  The airport is easy.  AND I’m finding some great spots to grab a meal solo!

Mateo bar de tapas
I drove to Durham and found a seat at the bar.  And I was lucky to find a seat because at 6pm, the place was pretty full.  I started with a beer and ordered the pan con tomate, similar to bruchetta.  My favorite part of the meal!  Next the ensalada de mariscos, a seafood salad.  Also great.  Last I ordered the sweetbreads, normally something I really enjoy but no so much this time.  But regardless of that one dish, I would definitely go back here.  Plus next to this restaurant are quite a few others on my list of must try spots in Durham.  Good thing I have another trip planned in before the end of the year!

Wariji
My colleague told me if I wanted something relatively close to the hotel and office but not quite downtown, go hear.  I was glad I did.  Quiet crowd but tables were full.  Smaller menu but plenty of options.  Sake, Agadashi Tofu and a Scary Jerry Roll…I will be back!

The Wandering Moose – Food Truck
One of the great things about our North Carolina office is that the food trucks come every Wednesday.  I can eat a great meal while still being productive or meeting with other managers or team members.  Wandering moose had this amazing sandwich – Black Angus Brisket Sandwich(i got it with no blue) that was SO messy but so worth it. Plus mac and cheese with bacon.  YES!

Coquette
I love French food, don’t mind the richness and wish I could have it more often.  And when I travel, I look for great French restaurants because I don’t get to treat myself at home too often.  Coquette has a convenient location and I enjoyed escargot and mussels.  I hear there are two other french spots I need to try…..

Aladdin’s Eatery Raleigh
I needed something quick and something to fill me up for the day.  Hummus Shawarma Plate- perfect amount.  Located in the Briar Creek area, it is super convenient to eat or pick up.

Fresh. Local Ice Cream
Because on a business trip, you get to treat yourself with ice cream!
