A Food Tour of Chapel Hill

Posted Apr 08 2011 9:47pm

Hello, hello!

I had a wonderful Friday showing Tina around Chapel Hill today :) Here we are on campus with the famous UNC well!

020

The weather was GORGEOUS here today – nearly 80 and super sunny! I took Tina straight from the airport to a fun outdoor lunch at one of my local faves – Sandwhich .

010

We had a blast hanging, catching up, and enjoying the weather :)

006

I had the “Mr. Crunch” sandwich, which was thinly-sliced prosciutto, lettuce, fresh mozzarella, mint & lemon oil on a baguette. SO good!

009

The lemony peppery oil was the best :)

And we enjoyed a plethora of liquids. Mint tea and water for both of us; a beer for Tina and a glass of wine for me!

007

What?! We’re on vacation ;) Disregard the fact that I live here, heh.

After our leisurely lunch we headed out to explore Chapel Hill and the UNC campus by foot! We walked around for a couple hours enjoying the sights – the flowers were all in bloom and I was happy to see campus was looking it’s best for me to show it off :)

So pretty! I love it here.

Next on the tour of my local favorites – a power yoga class at my favorite studio, Franklin Street Yoga !

Amazing class tonight. It felt good to get some sweating and stretching in!

Last on today’s tour of the south? BBQ, of course ;)

022

Matt, Tina, my grad school friend Lauren, and I all hit up Allen & Son Barbeque for dinner – it’s the best! A random house in the middle of nowhere… super southern and authentically delicious. I love that they don’t even have a website!

I enjoyed the BBQ sandwich with a side of baked beans. SO good.

026

BBQ here is a lot different here – instead of thick, tomato-y BBQ sauce like I’m used to, NC BBQ sauce is more thin and vinegary. It’s also really good, just different!

027

We also all shared some hush puppies :)

023

Time to relax! We’re pooped after our busy and active day. We’re off in the morning to our insane 5k obstacle course adventure race over in Greensboro – stay tuned for an epic recap :)

G’night!
