On weekends off, sometimes members of the team like to hit the road and head to Wrightsville Beach in Wilmington, NC. It’s just about two hours away and aside from clean, beautiful beaches, it offers amazing food, too.
Lauren Martin and I dined on this incredible sushi from Bento Box. This restaurant came highly recommended from our coach, who frequents the place in the summer. (Thanks, Ker!)
Our coach instructed us to find Chef Lee, the head chef at Bento Box. We introduced ourselves and within a matter of minutes, the amazing creations you see above were proudly presented to us. We’re not exactly sure what came in these rolls, but we know salmon, eel, tuna and shrimp were all involved. Oh, and spicy mayo, of course.
Oh, did I almost forget about dessert? Just some casual chocolate-peanut butter pot stickers with caramel dipping sauce… yeah. Did I mention they were on the house? You go, Chef Lee.
If you’ve been to Wrightsville Beach, you’ve definitely seen The Oceanic Restaurant at some point. Here’s a reminder of that restaurant you saw with the outdoor seating on the pier.
Kait and I headed over to The Oceanic after a long morning of Kayaking. We started off with this incredible appetizer creation– Shrimp, crab meat and avocado all mashed into one, served with tortilla chips. It’s oh so Pinnable.
After that delightful dish, we split these fish tacos. YUM
Get out to the beach and hit up these quality establishments! What are you waiting for?
