This Saturday, Josh took me on a surprise lunch date to a place called Happy + Hale! The man obviously knows me, because when we got there I wanted to order the entire menu. The store has locations in both Raleigh and Durham, and we checked out the Durham location. I loved everything about it- the atmosphere, the friendly staff, and of course, the food.
After much deliberation, I finally just asked someone what to order and they told me the Incredibowl (called the “Incredibull” at the Bull City location 😉 ) was their favorite, so I got that along with a can of kombucha. Josh ordered the Protein Bowl and the Hale Mary smoothie.
The above photo does not even do my meal justice! It was full of beets, nuts, butternut squash, black beans, quinoa, and avocado. It also had a lemon tahini dressing which I am recreating at home as soon as possible.
We had such a good experience at Happy + Hale and can’t wait to go back. I have my eye on the Almond Brothers smoothie (coffee + chocolate!) and the Ahi Poke Bowl, just to name a few. If you are ever in the Raleigh-Durham area, I highly recommend this place!
