My husband came across an article in our local paper a few weeks ago. It was titled "Tastes that Define Our State"http://www.newsobserver.com/2010/06/09/521815/the-tar-heel-25.html There are a list of 25 places in North Carolina where you can go to experience the many "flavors" of our state. Joe and I have decided to hit as many as we can in the next year.
We decided to start with #16 on the list. The classic BLT sandwich served at Merritt's Store & Grill in Chapel Hill. http://merrittsstoreandgrill.com/ We set our GPS and headed off for a flavor adventure.
We went inside to find a large room with a check out counter and items for sale. We followed a short narrow hallway. Along the wall of the hallway were a grouping of beverage selections ranging from water & soda, to beer & wine.
We came to a tiny kitchen where 2 guys were frantically making, you guessed it, BLT's.
My sandwich. Next time I will go with the double:-)
Joe and I had a nice time at this little market. Friendly people, great sandwiches enjoyed in the good outdoors. We will go back. If you decided to go be sure and splurge and get the double or the triple BLT, you won't be sorry:-)
Enjoy your world:-)
