It’s here! It’s here! Ask anyone in Raleigh what they are doing from 10/13-10/23 and you’ll get one answer: I’m going to the fair! Matt and I look forward to the fair every year. We have our favorite haunts (Oddities tent, anyone?) and always find something new to discover. Continue reading

In theory, the Bull City Food Truck Fiesta should have been an awesome day. Foodies, loads of good food, and a great selection of beers at Sam’s Quik Shop, which was hosting. While the day was good for introducing the growing food truck scene in the Triangle, the heat and the massive amount of people turned a good time into a sunstroke-inducing afternoon.

As I get closer and closer to the big 3-0, I’m trying to check more things off my “Things to do before I leave my twenties behind” list. I still haven’t traveled to a lot of exotic locales, haven’t gotten my crazy tattoo (yet), or ran a marathon (I’ll get to the treadmill…tomorrow). But one thing I knew I could check off on my birthday was a fun challenge, win a food-eating challenge.

I haven’t had a chance to visit my lovely hometown of Springfield, IL in more than a year now, and I have long been craving its famous native dish: the horseshoe. I had wanted to try making one myself ever since I saw it on Man V. Food and got more than little nostalgic for my hometown and its famous dish. As mentioned in my earlier post, the Horseshoe sandwich is a dish that is limited almost exclusively to the relatively small city of Springfield.

I’m a sucker for a good burger. It’s been our mission since we’ve moved to Raleigh to find the best burger in town and we’ve made some pretty good discoveries (Char-Grill, Mojoe’s) and still have a lot to try (the burger at Porter’s is supposed to be legendary). So, imagine my happiness when we heard that a new burger joint, Uncle Fatty’s Drive-in (Woodburn Road, Cameron Village). Cameron Village has always been a little boring when it comes to food for me, how many “upscale” bar and grills can one place have? I think they’re trying to revitalize its culinary side, a few new restaurants have popped up. But it was Uncle Fatty’s that really picqued my interest. I mean, with a name like that, who could resist…right?

I know that I am in that this a blasphemy here in Pork Central, USA but I have to say that my favorite meat would have to be lamb. I could do a whole blog devoted totally to lamb and other sheep related meat products. Naturally when I first noticed lamb sliders on the bar menu at Manchester’s grill (see http://wp.me/pAgIi-2T and http://wp.me/pAgIi-bE ) I was pretty excited, and I have been a fan of them ever since. So, I thought I would try my own home made lamb sliders.

Well, we were hoping to go to the famed Roast Grill last week, but even though I watched it happening on the North Carolina Man v. Food episode, I am still not entirely convinced food is served there. I have never been by there when it is open, and when we went on Saturday, our plans were once again foiled as there was s a sign in the window stating that they were attending a private wedding. So, after grumbling about Roast Grill being involved in a government conspiracy that resembles the plot of Fringe, we decided on one of our favorites: Mo joe’s Burger Joint(620 Glenwood Ave Raleigh, NC 27603-1224).

Well, rather than mope around as we often do on Sunday afternoons, we decided to go hang out at our favorite bar (Manchester’s Grill 9101 Leesville Rd # 153, Raleigh) and watch the Packers play some football!

Well I didn’t have any pics of my own when I first made the post about the Illinois delicacy the horseshoe sandwich . My little sister back in Illinois told me she was going out for a horseshoe last night and she agreed to take a few pictures for the blog.
