There is nothing better than finding a
locally owned restaurant on Urbanspoon.
I had never been to Morganton and it was lunchtime.
While on the road traveling from Knoxville, TN to Raleigh, NC, the lunch hour put me at the Morganton, NC exit. I looked around and saw all the familiar fast food chains and know that was not going to be my choice today. My Urbanspoon mobile app helped me find Wisteria.
I arrived about 11:30 and they had just opened. It was Saturday and the Brunch was being featured. My server, Cecil, approached quickly and offered a freshly made Mimosa or Bloody Mary. Had to pass on that since I was driving, but they sure looked good. He presented the Menu for my approval and brought out two very nice muffins to enjoy.
I suggested that Cecil surprise me with his
favorite menu items. He didn't disappoint me.
The Wisteria Breakfast featured Eggs with Cheese, Stone Ground Grits, bacon and a biscuit. The grits were outstanding....loved them. Cecil also surprised me with something I have never heard of....LIVERMUSH! I have had lots of different things to eat but this one stumped me. As we talked, I found out it is a regional delicacy. A combination of ground liver and cornmeal, pan fried. At first, I thought it was a slice of pumpernickel bread. It was a very different side dish, but I found out I did like it. Always been a braunschweiger fan and this tasted just like it.
I enjoyed by brunch and would stop back again to
enjoy more of the menu. Thanks for serving
me a great local meal.
