A couple months ago my parents came into town for a Wednesday family date night with tapas and blues, specifically Taj Mahal at the Carolina Theater. As Mateo Tapas in downtown Durham has become one of my favorite spots in town, naturally I decided to treat them. As an appetizer we tried the jamon mermelada. My step dad was super skeptical at first, “ham in a jam, with persimmons? I don’t know Erin.”; he agreed that it was amazing to say the least. What better reason than to pitch a review to the editor at the Indy Week. Here’s an article from Nov. 4th, 2015 Indy Week… Photo credit to Alex Boerner.
