World's Best Cinnamon Roll in North Carolina?
|Ren's grubbing on the breakfast of champions.|
Perhaps I shouldn't feel so guilty, but I do. I suppose that's why I've become such a snob with eating out. I don't want to put just an average cinnamon roll in my mouth, I want the best. If I'm going to suffer the shame and high blood glucose levels, then damn it, it's going to be worth it.
I had been promising Ren that I'd take her to Sunrise Biscuit Kitchen for sometime. The place has quite a reputation from both Food Network shows and has been featured in a few movies. I knew it would be good, I just didn't know how good.
The two things every one says you have to get at this local's favorite is the chicken biscuit and their cinnamon roll. Considering I hadn't had a biscuit in a long, long time... I quickly came to the conclusion that this is probably the best biscuit I've ever had. Buttery, fall apart, light and fluffy deliciousness with a fried chicken breast with egg and cheese. Yes, I think I just found my death row last meal of choice. Then came the cinnamon roll with equally similar characteristics. My plan was just to take a bite.
Let me just say I make a lot of plans in my life, some work out, some don't. For a moment, my inner fatty almost demanded a second. In all my life, everywhere I've gone, everything I've done, I've never, ever tasted a cinnamon roll as good as Sunrise Biscuit Kitchen's. It is literally the world's best and is worth every bit of self hate that one can deploy upon themselves in the aftermath. This place is more than worth a drive to Chapel Hill, it's worth a drive from almost anywhere in North America. If you're wondering if it's better than such and such place (Time Out, Bojangles, Biscuitville, etc.), the answer is yes. Yes, it is.
I broke every rule in the book that carb infested day, but it didn't break me. As Rocky once said (I think), "it's not how many cinnamon rolls you can eat, it's how many cinnamon rolls you can eat and keep moving forward, that's how winning is done."
