Tasting Tobacco Town

Durham

So where did I leave off yesterday? Ahh, yes, the basil beer.

I’d seen this on tap in Hillsborough and practically ran towards it when we arrived at Fullsteam last night. I love farmhouse style beers and saisons – and with a hint of basil? Yes, please.

It was subtle, but certainly detectable, and expectations were met.

Once I quenched my thirst, I surveyed the food trucks. I really wanted to try the Korean bbq that was recently written up in the NY Times, but the line was way tooo long and the other food trucks did not disappoint.

Matt quickly went to the sausage wagon (because it had the shortest line), while I waited for Indian tacos. The sausage was small, so I only had a bite, but it was heaven in a bun. The tangy mustard? or relish? it came with was fabulous.

At the Indian truck, I got spicy chickpea tacos. And, they were spicy. And awesome with a flaky soft naan-ish crust.

And because we couldn’t resist (and the bill was on Fuqua), Matt and I split a crazy slice with pesto, banana peppers, roasted potatoes, fresh mozzarella, and NC sausage from Pie Pushers.

It really doesn’t get any better than this.

    I would say “it doesn’t get any better than this” is the exact perfect way to describe that day! It looks amazing. That sausage thing!? Oh my goodness.
