What’s Wowing Me Now

Food writer Jonathan Ammons lets us in on his favorite dish du jour.

Pimento cheese balls at Creekside Taphouse: Cheap pints and a massive patio packed with lawn games aren’t all this hidden Haw Creek neighborhood spot has to offer. There are also pimento cheese balls — gooey, salty, savory pimento cheese breaded and fried to crispy perfection. Dipped in green-tomato jam, they are a true bliss-point experience. — Jonathan Ammons
