Yesterday I jumped in line at the Neue Southern Food Truck (pronounced Noy-a, in case you were wondering) in the North Main area of Downtown Greenville, brought to us by Chefs Lauren Zanardelli and Graham Foster. Let me tell you you won’t mind eating your brussel sprouts at this place! They came highly recommended via people in line. I placed an order for way too much food, grabbed a cold bottled Cheerwine from the cooler then made my way to the “lunch room” in Community Tap to sit with some new friends and graze.
I sampled Schnitzel, Banh-Mi, BBQ Pommes Frites (big thanks to Claudia for sharing!) and their Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chunk and Candied Bacon and Chocolate Cookie drizzled with Bacon Fat Icing, but the sprouts stole the show -fried up with apple cider gastrique and popcorn. They were super salty and sweet and crunchy. My lunch buddies were oohing and ahhing. I think there were a few happy tears. (I packed up the leftovers for the hubs.) Affordable and deliciously different lunch. You can follow them on FB here. (I think they will be open Friday and Saturday nights for dinner starting at 5ish.)
While I was in the area, I popped into a few of the shops in Stone’s Point before hitting Shinola (an antique/junk shop) just up the street.
Before leaving Community Tap I grabbed a growler of wine. I secretly admit a deep jealousy of beer drinkers. I want a growler too dang it! I finally got my growler on. I tried the Cab and Chardonnay but settled on red: a Charles and Charles Cab/Syrah blend. My cousin just happened to stroll in while I was there, so we caught up a bit. I love living in a place where you see people you know wherever you go.
