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!
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!
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!
