THAI PEARL RESTAURANT

Thank you Thai Pearl Restaurant and Kickbackavl for this delicious meal, delivered hot, fresh, and delicious right to my door! Fresh rolls, drunken noodles, and one of my favorite dishes, grilled pork in beer. In my works, there’s almost nothing better than getting great local food delivered.

Whoa. I just inhaled this insanely delicious plate of meatloaf ‘n’ waffles with fried green tomatoes & pepper gravy at Storm Rhum Bar and Bistro, and I met the new Chef de Cuisine, Jordan Carter. The menu at Storm changes more often than just about any restaurant in town, so best get there soon if you wanna eat this incredible pile of awesome. 🔥

[ Cornmeal waffle, frisée, Jay’s meatloaf, cheddar cheese, chipotle sauce, pepper gravy, bread & butter pickles, pickled onion, fried green tomatoes, fresh raspberries, micro greens ]

The boss at Kickbackavl, Jennie, took me to breakfast at Simple Cafe & Juice Bar this morning. I had a very light and delicious serving of avocado toast and she got a breakfast bowl. Great food, great company!


BLUE PLATE MAYONNAISE

So, check this out! A few months ago I wrote to Blue Plate Mayonnaise, and said, “Hey I’m a food writer living in solid Duke’s Mayonnaise country here in Western North Carolina, and if you want to send me a sample of your mayonnaise I’ll do a side-by-side comparison.” Then lo and behold, today a jar of their mayonnaise, and some swag showed up in the mail, including a wee little voodoo doll, a T-shirt, some beer cups, and Mardi Gras beads! This mayonnaise company knows how to party, y’all.

Well, Chef Jamie from Sand Hill Kitchen and I did our super scientific taste test with Dr. Mom today. Blue Plate Mayonnaise VS Duke’s Mayonnaise, and the results are in: They are both excellent, and in our blind taste test, they came out dead-even in overall score. Jamie was more consistent, choosing Duke’s more often, but even she chose Blue Plate over Duke’s in at least a couple of categories. Blue Plate was rated highest as a “spoonful,” and Duke’s was rated best for the deviled eggs, and they split the difference on the tomato sandwich. In conclusion, they are both high-quality excellent mayonnaise products, made in the south, using egg yolks (no egg whites), so it’s no wonder that, to me and Jamie at least, they were essentially the same. And there you have it. #science #thanksmom

Soooo… since I was already on the south slope getting chicken wings from Cultura / Funkatorium, I decided that I might as well pop over to Bear’s Smokehouse BBQ and get some of their very excellent wings too. LOL Chicken wing double down!!! No joke though, these are great wings.


CULTURA / FUNKATORIUM

I’m having an excellent cup of coffee at the new Pollen coffee and flower shop on South French Broad, right next to Little Bee Thai. It’s a great space with really nice offerings. ❤️
