Terrine Labor Day BBQ

Labor Day was coming up and I was able to attend Terrine's all you can eat BBQ! With great ambience, fresh food off the grill and awesome weather, Monday night was a success. For just $35.00 a person excluding drinks & tax, you get to eat an endless amount of delicious food barbecued by Chef Morningstar of Terrine!  The selection was picked carefully and executed perfectly. From pickle brine fried chicken to mac n cheese and a tomato salad, everything paired well together! The flavors of every item had my mouth watering and wanting more and more. Continue reading to see more pictures and view the dishes through the all the day BBQ!

Hierloom Tomatoes with Cotija Cheese: This was a refreshing and soft part of the heavy, meat filled meal! It worked well with the hot meats and the mac n cheese. This was one of the dishes I kept going back to clear my palette and enjoy a refreshing bite.

Crispy Potato & Hatch Chile Tacos: This was almost like an empanada and tasted amazing! The potatoes were crispy and also soft on the inside and the crispy taco worked well with the potato. This was also one of my favorites.

Potato Salad: I am a major fan of potato salad and this was one of the best I've EVER had! It was not a strong mayo taste like some potato salads may have. It was a very light salad, which is rare when potatoes are heavy and the sauce is normally heavy as well. This is definitely a recipe I want to snag. The potatoes were also cooked perfectly which sometimes restaurants may mess up. Overall, the potato salad, mac n cheese & the tomato salad had me coming back for more and more every time I got some meat from the BBQ!

Ancient Age Bourbon, Grapefruit, Honey: This was a delicious, sweet but not SO sweet cocktail to go with the delicious BBQ! The grapefruit masked the bourbon but not too much and the honey gave it nice flavor as well.

Sticky Toffee Cornbread: This was by FAR one of my favorites of the night. The cornbread was moist and full of flavor and then on top there was a gooey sticky toffee! It was sweet and paired PERFECT with the amazing cornbread. It was sweet, sticky and had an amazing taste, I had a lot of these!

Pictured above in the first photo was the Pickle Brine Fried Chicken. I've never in my life had fried chicken like this, and this is on their regular menu. The other items are just special for this occasion but on their day-to-day menu they have the Fried Chicken with Grits! The outside crust was crunchy and had a hint of sour from the pickle that gave it an amazing taste. And then when you bit into it, you taste soft and melt-in-your-mouth chicken. Best of the night!

Thanks Terrine for having me! It was truly a night to remember and I am looking forward to coming back soon!
