We arrived at William’s, in the RTP area of Durham, NC just at the line of Apex on 54/55.ย  Here is a link to his website: William’s Gourmet Kitchen. and I loved how each table has a little flower on it!

The owner/operator/head chef greeted us at the door and I loved that he had a huge ear-to-ear grin the whole time, so genuine! The menu, which is spread across and above his head, is also available to take with you and online to check out. It took me so long to decide because I wanted to order everything!!!

I finally decided on the you pick two combo, I had the soup of the day: Tomato Bisque and a half of the Smoked Turkey Sandwich:

Smoked turkey breast, chipotle mayo, lettuce, onion, tomato, Havarti served on artisan Focccacia.

I also ordered a side of sweet potato fries that were served with a dipping sauce of melted butter, molasses and brown sugar. OH MY GOODNESS! These were by far the best sweet potato fries that I have ever had and the dipping sauce: GENIUS! It almost ate all of them, they were THAT good.

My thoughts:
The soup was incredible. I know you would not think of tomato soup as “incredible”, however this was a delicately creamy soup with little tomato pieces giving you a little burst of juice. It was not overly creamy or chunky, it was quite perfect.

My sandwich was huge and it was only a half! The veggies were crisp, fresh, and the turkey was shaved thin. The foccacia was soft, slightly salty and chewy.

You guys can be expecting many many more reviews from William’s Gourmet Kitchen. If you are in the Durham/Chapel Hill/Raleigh area, definitely check it out for a great meal. It is open Monday-Saturday, breakfast – lunch.

Some sweet potato fries sounds good right about now. Too bad I’m nursing a sore throat. Nothing but soft foods for me today. T_T BTW, that restaurant looks mighty good.
