Triad Touring Tasters is heading to the Undercurrent Restaurant!

Triad Touring Tasters, or the “Triple T Express” is touring on foot this January in Greensboro! Guests will begin our tour next door at Zeto wine and cheese shop, 335 Battleground Ave at 6:00 pm on Tuesday evening, January 22, 2019. Owners, Penny and Su will serve tasters a choice of wine before we walk to The Undercurrent.

Brothers, Wes and Chris Wheeler, work together to continue Undercurrent Restaurant's long tradition of inspired farm to table cuisine and exceptional service.

Since 1998, Undercurrent Restaurant has sought out and supported local farmers and purveyors. They continue that honorable tradition today which they share with us to highlight all of the amazing people who work hard to bring us the best North Carolina has to offer. The culinary team, led by Chef de Cuisine Michael Harkenreader, is inspired by the seasonal and small harvest selections of our local farmers and their menus reflect the farm to table tradition. They have designed an exciting menu just for us.

The mission of the TTT Express is to explore all of the culinary talent and backstreet gems in our communities. This will be a treat for all of our curious tasters!

Tickets include a beverage at Zeto wine and cheese shop, meal, tax, and tip; additional beverages and tips are not included.

Our intention is to bring attention to our locally-owned restaurants and to bring the Triad together by providing an enjoyable dining experience for our tasters to discover our community’s restaurant scene.


Bon Appetit!

On July 25, local Food Blogger Tim Beeman joined us for our first TTT Express originating in Winston-Salem and traveling to Greensboro.  Tim writes,

"I wrote on Monday that Stephanie and I would be going on a little journey and that I would write about it this week. Today is that day.

We started out at our home base, Willows Bistro, and met up with Mary Lacklen and Deanna Watson, both from Triad Local First and Triad Touring Tasters. We had a fantastic appetizer of scallops with roasted red peppers and oddly enough, lima beans. Stephanie even ate the lima beans, which isn’t something she usually does. And, we also were treated to a lovely beverage of our choice and we both chose the sangrias because they are the best in town.

After the warm-up, we jumped on a beautiful bus with horseshoed seats, lights and a great stereo system. It looked new. The bus was provided by Matt Logan, Inc. and I — The Man Who Ate the Town — recommend them for your business transfers or “party bus” situations.

The bus took us to Greensboro to Pho Hien Vuong where we met co-owner Trang Trinh (she along with her brother, Ben own this lovely culinary palace) and several friends and fans of the Triad Touring Tasters. Pho Hien Vuong has been around for a while and has become a favorite among Greensboro diners as well as Winston-Salemites willing to cross the dreaded “Sandy Ridge Line” to get their Pho “eat on.” I can see why it has become so popular.

Trang made sure we were comfortable and took wonderful care of us."
