Even if they haven't taken a trip overseas, Yelp Charlotte Elites got a big taste of worldly cuisine at Fran's Filling Station!
With each continent represented, Elites were treated to a haul of eats like tandoori salmon with lentils, mini burgers with bacon wrapped tater tots, seared tuna, carnitas, eggplant, bread pudding and so much more. Fran's stuffed the Elites full of delicious culinary delights – to the tune of 10 dishes! Ian M was drooling over the tots, stating, "Oh my! I had sweet sweet dreams about the bacon wrapped sweet potato tater tots. We are definitely going back here for dinner in the near future!"
To properly wash down the plethora of dishes, Tryon Distributing offered delicious vino from Perfecto Prosecco, The Other Red and Astica Torrontes. And if beer was more your jive, Olde Mecklenberg Brewery poured samples of their famed Copper and Mecklenburger brews. Tiffany N gives "big props to the wine peeps and Olde Mecklenburg Brewery for providing their classic brews." Elites certainly imbibed their fill of delicious beverages!
International swag filled the tables and Elites left with furry slap bracelets, boomerangs, fans, berets and many a mustache! As Leanne C says, "Felt berets, exquisite food and free booze, how could this not be an awesome event?"
Many thanks to the kind and generous staff at Fran's Filling Station and to Ms. Tonya P of Poprock Photography for capturing this culinary adventure with her shiny photo skills! Make sure you check out all the photos and don't forget to let us know your favorite continent by reviewing the event!
Until next time, SYOY!
