Food in Different Places

Since we’ve traveled, we’ve discovered new restaurants and places to eat that we love. For example, we ate at Bojangles a lot when we were in the south because it’s delicious, less bad for you than a lot of fast food, and an awesome southern experience.

When we were in North Carolina, we ate at 12 Bones a few times. The place has two locations and is known as the best barbecue in Asheville. We’ve eaten seafood in Pikes Place Market in Seattle, surf and turf tacos at a street taco stand in San Diego, and chicken and waffles in Kentucky.

In Cape Cod we had lobster a few times, and I found out that even though I tried to eat it many times, I’m mildly allergic to lobster. So sad, right? At least it’l save me some money. IMG_2760 (1)

The point of saying this is that when you travel, you try new things that you wouldn’t have been able to at home, and sometimes it’s amazing, like Bojangles or 12 Bones! And sometimes you find that it’s even better than amazing, like Pikes Place!

When Grandma Ruth came last time, she took us to the 12Bones Smokehouse in Asheville, North Carolina. It was awesome barbeque and the sides were also great. I got a pulled pork sandwich, mac and cheese, and coleslaw. The pulled pork was some of the very best I’ve ever tasted, and the mac and cheese was awesome too, but I wasn’t very into the slaw because I think it was too sweet. We had an awesome time.

We found out that President Obama came there in ’08 to eat, and ever since it’s been all the locals can talk about. They even think he is going to buy a house and move here!
