My husband and I went on a Triangle Food Tour several years ago. We loved it so much that this year, we decided to take my in-laws as a birthday gift. We went on the Durham Walking Food Tour - wow, what a treat! Our tour guide was great and we stopped at six different restaurants. All of them offered very unique and individualized treats for us to eat! While the day was rainy, it did not stop us at all. The first stop, Fish Mongers, had our table waiting and we were able to walk right inside and start the tour! The manager provided us with great history and we were served three of their best selling foods - cat fish, barbecue shrimp and pork barbecue!
It would be hard for me to pick a favorite so I'd narrow it down to three! We stopped at a little hidden gem called The Little Dipper. It is a fondue restaurant in Durham and was amazing! We were served large servings of vegetables/bread with a delicious dill cheese fondue. The owner took time out of his schedule to show us all of the unique restaurant designs and he was very personable. We could not stop talking about it and after the tour was over, we went back on our own to try out the desert - caramel, chocolate and peanut butter fondue with a platter of goodness - strawberries, pineapple, marshmellows, cream puffs, pretzels (and the list goes on!) We will be going back there for sure!
We also loved a little tapas bar that we visited - the bacon wrapped dates were devine and served with a delicious 2009 red wine! We all left the tapas bar and my husband and I hope to have our next date night there. We wanted to try everything on the menu! We also went to the Cupcake Bar - wow! Everyone on the tour got to have an entire cupcake and there were many flavors to choose from.
We can't wait to go on another food tour - this is something you don't want to miss out on! It is perfect for a date with your spouse, fun time with local friends or friends that are visiting, and a special and unique gift! Thanks, Triangle Food Tour! We had a blast!!
