This morning I made the mistake of not eating breakfast before riding my bike to work. Although I wasn’t hungry I should have known that a six mile bike ride in the 80 degree heat would make me ravenous.
All that I could do for the second half of my ride was dream of the Sunrise Biscuit Kitchen in Chapel Hill.
There is just something about southern biscuits, their buttery light airy fluffiness just can’t be matched. It is something that we just don’t get up north (although some do try), and when it comes to southern biscuits Sunrise does them the best.
Basically you can get anything you want on a biscuit…country ham, egg and cheese, fried pork chop (pictured to the right), bacon, friend chicken, if it’s southern or a breakfast food…you can probably get it on a biscuit.
Oh and they have 32oz sweet teas for under $2!
klk and I got to eat here two mornings during our visit to the area for XX Merge, and it was one of the food highlights of the trip. I’m still dreaming of that heavenly egg and cheese sandwich, and slightly wishing I would have tried something a little bit more outside of comfort zone (besides the bacon one, I did try that). klk got the country ham, and it was also amazing.
It is a little sad to be sitting in an office in New York City knowing that the biscuits that you crave are hundreds of miles away. If you happen to be in the Chapel Hill area, or headed that way do yourself a favor and grab a biscuit from Sunrise Biscuit Kitchen…it might change the way you think about biscuits and the world.Sunrise Biscuit Kitchen is located at 1305 E Franklin St Chapel Hill, NC 27514 (919) 933-1324
