Eating and Drinking in Raleigh, NC

We're visiting our friends Tiffani and Deke in North Carolina this week, and besides visiting and catching up and helping them watching them move into their new place, we've been checking out some of the local spots for food and drink. We went to a great spot for Mexican food the other night called Jose & Sons, and last night we went to a place called Trophy Brewing & Pizza for (duh) beer and pizza:


The beer taps are all trophy tops…cute!


The pizza there was fabulous. We ordered a "Daredevil" (ghost chili pepper salami, fire roasted tomato sauce, mozzarella blend, fresh jalapeno, caramelized onions, sriracha) — so hot and SO good, another called  "Local Celebrity" (sweet potato puree, smoked gouda, country ham, swiss chard, spiced apple reduction), also SO good, and the "Most Outgoing" (local mushrooms, caramelized onion, fresh arugula, brie, mozzarella blend, tomato sauce). All three were delicious and different.

The first night in the new place was without power, so we hung out by candlelight last night, and this morning Deke went to get coffee and breakfast for everyone (North Carolina style):


The power's back now and we're just working here while they settle in.

  1. I grew up in a German/English household. We had waffles twice a year … turkey and waffles for Xmas and chicken and waffles for Easter. But our chicken wasn’t fried and we didn’t put the turkey or chicken on top of the waffles. Instead, we made the waffles from scratch, scraped some butter on top of them like toast, and added a sprinkling of sugar. The waffles were more like a side than part of the main course. And they were delicious. Try it, you’ll like it!
