City Love: Wilmington, NC

Hey friends. As many of you know, Kyle and I love good food. One of our favorite hobbies is to go out to great restaurants. So, while we lived in Wilmington we were able to find some awesome places to eat. We made a point to never eat at the same places twice. There are so many good restaurants here that we didn’t want to get stuck in a rut. But, even with that goal, some places were so good that they kept us coming back. So, when we were planning our trip down here, our two biggest goals were to visit with friends and eat at our favorite restaurants. These are the ones that made the list!

1.) K-38 Baja Grill.

Ok, this was only on my list, but, they have the most amazing beer battered fish burrito. It will knock your socks off!

2.) Flip’s Barbeque.

Normally, me and Kyle are not into eastern NC bbq. However, we tried this place out of convenience and it’s amazing. Their sauce is so sweet, spicy and vinegary at the same time. Not to mention they are incredibly inexpensive and their french fries are the perfect amount of crunchy! (I’m real technical about these descriptions, right? ha)

3.) Paddy’s Hollow.

This is a place that we went A LOT probably our second favorite restaurant in Wilmington. It has some of the best steak I’ve ever tasted. They use great aged beef making it so tender. On top of that they have a plate of fish n’ chips that you can split comfortably with another person as well as one of the best po’ boys I’ve ever tasted. All this and they send you a coupon for a free entree for your birthday! Guess whose birthday is coming up and is going tonight : )

4.) Flaming Amy’s.

If you’ve come to visit us, then you’ve gone to either one of the Flaming Amy’s restaurants. There is the classic burrito barn, where you can get any type of burrito you can imagine, from the fried chicken with buffalo sauce and ranch, to the thai me up with tofu and peanut sauce to the shrimp po’ boy with jalapeno tarter sauce. Along with that, they have a full on salsa bar with unique salsa’s to taste. The other restaurant is Flaming Amy’s Bowl. It’s a mongolian style restaurant where you get a bowl and you pick out your ingredients and hand them to a guy/girl who will cook them with your choice of noodles or rice right there in front of you. It’s all you can eat and there are a crazy amount of sauces that you can chose from. My favorite is their weekend brunch. You can pick all of your ingredients and they’ll scramble them with eggs and give you tortillas to eat it with. So good.

with love and good eats,
