I managed to try a good number of new eateries during the month and some change I called Charlotte home. Hazelnuts Creperie was so yummy I blogged about it about five minutes after I ate there, check out that post here.
I was fortunate enough to try many other great places, often times thanks to recommendations from locals. In no particular order, some of my favorites:
Tin Tin: Come hungry! Chinese, Japanese, Korean Buffet. Make sure not to miss the crab legs and the noodle bar!
The Dish: Southern Comfort Food . . . made two trips inside a week because it was so good. I tried both the chicken and dumplins and the country fried steak. They always have great specials to too – hello sweet potato bisque! If you love fried green tomatoes theirs are perfect.
Landmark Diner: Great options for meat and two veggies for cheap. Landmark also has an interesting twist on the chicken salad sandwich, which they serve melted with cheese on a grilled pita.
Lola’s: LOVE. Make sure you get there by 11:30a for lunch if you don’t want to stand in line for 3o+ minutes . . . by a few minutes to noon the line is out the door. I can personally attest to the amazingness of their cabbage, greens, mac & cheese, and jalapeno cornbread.
Sammy’s Deli: Check out the grilled chicken sub and ask them to add sautéd mushrooms.
Akahanna: Great option if you are in the mood for suishi. Buy one, get one half-off on all suishi rolls!
