Out and About

— I got the infamous “your storage is almost full” message on my phone. Since I create content for a living, it is imperative to delete excess files. Going back down memory lane I came across a bunch of food photos. It was lunch time so they definitely caught my attention.

The process made me think of restaurants I’ve visited but haven’t shared with you all. It’s been years since I’ve been to some of them, but that doesn’t make my experience any less believable. I took some of that information and put it in this article. According to the websites, each location is still operational.

How wonderful that the endless number of photos I have taken over the years are still useful to me. Have you visited any of the restaurants mentioned below?

Another broken egg

One of my family’s favorite places to have breakfast! Our first experience was at the Morrisville location. I had heard my parents rave about this place for way too long. As soon as I had the opportunity to go there, I did not hesitate.

I ordered a bacquezo omelet, city oatmeal, biscuit donuts and coffee. After one bite, I was in love with the chef. It was heaven for the taste buds! I even polled our server and got a name. The chef’s name is pronounced “Shy” but I don’t know how it is spelled.

On a recent trip to Charleston, SC, we visited another location. We indulged in everything from Bourbon Street waffles to a shrimp and crawfish scramble.

The locations of another broken egg in North Carolina include Raleigh, Morrsiville, Asheville and Charlotte. They are open Monday to Sunday from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The smoking room

All things smoked, barbecued and absolutely delicious! It was during one of our spontaneous adventures that we discovered this restaurant. After spending hours in Salisbury at the NC Transportation Museum, everyone needed food.

I was lucky enough to find some photos of this place. I also had to refer to one of our vlogs to find out exactly what was eaten. We ordered a Cajun turkey sandwich, burger, smoked sausage, ribs, mac and cheese, fries, greens, and cornbread.

The Carbonero

It was an afternoon lunch date. We ended up at a local Salvadoran restaurant that neither of us had tried or heard of. The Carbonero, to Graham, did not disappoint. I’m shocked that I only visited once!

There were dishes on the menu that I didn’t know so my hunger chose what I knew. The chicken fajita meal came with salad, pico de gallo, sour cream, beans and rice. I also enjoyed a side of plantains. It was my first time trying them with sour cream.

The Carbonero

Looking at the menu for this article reminded me of dishes that I vowed to try next time. I’m excited to get there and take my girls with me. I’m sure they’ll find something to satisfy their palate.

El Carbonero is located at 517 W Elm St. in Graham. It is open Wednesday through Monday from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. It is closed on Tuesday.
