I have something to share with you.
Business trip. Delays by the airline. Change the schedule. Exhausted. Had a list of great restaurants to try from chowhound…and missed them all
Champa Thai & Sushi Restaurant
I had 20 minutes to eat and get to the office. There was a large shopping center nearby and I recognized one of the names from a list of colleague gave me. Fast – yes. Not busy – now I know why. I ordered the Pad Thai…easy, hope they don’t mess it up. Well, no flavor. Bland. Strike 1.
By the time I finished at the office I was exhausted from my 7am flight(no wait- 2 hour delayed flight) into town so I picked the place that was only 10 minutes away. I will admit I did enjoy my meal but I wanted to try some of the chowhound spots. Didn’t happen but this was a good alternative. They offered a three course meal that let me try a few things…crab cake, Seared Scallops with polenta, wilted spinach & balsamic bbq sauce and the Profiterole with chocolate sauce & toasted almonds(the bartender said I must try it!)
Johnson Family Barbecue
I had to try NC barbecue. I live in Texas, have been to St. Louis and Kansas City and was super excited to try this North Carolina BBQ. We drove to this tiny restaurant next to a gas station and ate outside on picnic tables. Although this was not the best brisket I have had, the pulled pork was great and I did enjoy the flavors. Next time I am off to The Pit!!!
