Stuff I Ate in Durham

Durham’s charming nickname of the Dirty D doesn’t scream food scene. But it is a pretty good one. My gal pal and I ate every meal out in the downtown for two days. Here were the highlights.

Friday Night’s Stop:  Pizzeria Toro.

Buratta (shocking) and grilled peaches with pine nuts and crispy basil.

Ricotta dumplings under a mound of corn, cheese, and truffles.

Potato pizza with spicy sausage, bagna cauda, cheese, and garlic. Served with my fav chili oil on the side. Mmmmmm

Saturday Morning:  Rue Cler

Fluffy beignets, terrible coffee, and a delightful mimosa.

Crepe full of kimchi and roasted veg. Two poached eggs and a tomato sauce. Woah. Killer flavors. Soggy crepe.

For dinner we hit the 21c Hotel in Durham for a drink my friend was after. This man served as my date.

We started with sweet potato chips!!! Life changing.

Then, deviled eggs full of bacon marmalade.
