For breakfast Friday we decided to head to Hominy Grill, which is a nice short walk from the studio we are renting.
We both enjoyed both of these breads, though I preferred the pumpkin and Jarrod preferred the banana.. so that worked out quite well 🙂
All the sun and salt water made us crazy hungry, so we stopped at the Triangle Char bar for lunch:
I ended up only eating half of the burger, because we had such a big breakfast and all the cheesy dip. The avocado spread is what really made the burger tasty.
Jarrod got the spicy chicken tacos, which he REALLY liked:
After our late lunch, we headed back to the studio for some napping/showering then headed on our merry way to dinner. We decided to go to Sermet’s Corner on King Street. The restaurant had great ambiance, and kind of funky decor:
For the appetizer, we ordered the Baked Artichoke Torta:
Looks beautiful, tasted like butt. Haha.. unfortunately the menu didn’t mention that the torta was FILLED with black olives. Jarrod dislikes black olives. I, on the other hand, DESPISE black olives. I feel like they taint everything they touch… there’s just no eating around them because once they are in a dish the whole dish is RUINED (in my opinion anyway 😉 )
Lucky for us, the main course was AMAZING. We ordered the chicken sautéed with chorizo sausage, roasted red peppers, and sweat peas, in a red wine thyme gorgonzola reduction over penne pasta:
A-may-zing. For the record, that is pasta for night #3 in a row.. Hahaha 😀
On the way home, we decided to take one of the bike taxis back to the studio. Here’s a pic of me trying to discretely take a pick of the driver’s t-shirt without the driver noticing… Too bad he noticed, so I felt bad and didn’t try to take another clearer pic.. hahahah
For my raincheck b-day cake, we stopped at Cupcake and I got a Chocolate Tuxedo Cupcake:
This was so decadent…the icing was so thick and creamy it literally took several attempts to swallow… I saved half for later today 🙂
Today we’re heading to the harbor to do some actual sighteeing and some (more) eating 😉
