We arrived at Elon University and my cousin showed us around her dorm and the campus. We were happy to help her move some stuff to storage since she's heading back home this month after finals.
We were getting hungry and we decided to try Simply Thai for dinner. We checked in with the host and shown to a table. I was glad we were eating early because the restaurant got very busy while we were there.
Our starter was the lettuce wrap which was delicious and had a good kick from spices. The three of us then ordered sushi for our entrees. Everything was fresh and for the most part really good. The downfall to the meal was the sashimi summer roll. Inside rice paper was 3 kinds of fish, mango, and avocado. Unfortunately, the rolls were in a soup spoon filled with ponzu & mustard sauce. If I didn't drain the sauce, the rolls would have been soggy and I would have eaten a week's worth of sodium. With that being said I would return to this restaurant next time we're in the area.
We said our goodbyes to my cousin and made our way to Raleigh where we would stay at the Residence Inn Raleigh Midtown. Our friends were already there and spending time with their family who lived in the area.
Our room offered 2 queen beds, a bathroom, living room, and small kitchen. While there we used the gym which was very small but met our needs. We also tried the breakfast. Unfortunately, there wasn't anything for me to eat there so we ventured on to Starbucks.
Next up we continue our trip and make it to Savannah GA.
