In 2009, Meherwan Irani quit his day job in sales to open his first restaurant – Chai Pani, an Indian street food joint in downtown Asheville, NC. Whether it was a midlife crisis or a stroke of genius is debatable. Since then, the self-taught chef has opened six restaurants, one bar, and now, Spicewalla. With four James Beard Award nominations for Best Chef in the Southeast under his belt, he’s finally confident this might just be working out. His restaurants have been written up in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, GQ, Food & Wine, Saveur, USA Today, and Bon Appétit, among others. His latest venture, Spicewalla, harkens back to his roots in India. Every fall, while growing up, Meherwan's family would spend a whole week making their own dhansak masala from the freshest, hand-picked whole spices. They’d roast and grind it all themselves -- a tradition he brought with him when he opened his first restaurant. When some local chef pals asked him where they could source fresher, superior spices in more manageable amounts for their kitchens, he jumped at the opportunity to share his passion for all things spice.

Local Outer Banks Shopping

57762 NC Hwy 12 – Hatteras NC 27943 blue_pelican@mac.com

Find us in the heart of Hatteras Village on the island of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina. You will enjoy our great selection of local Outer Banks, regional, and American made arts, crafts and gifts. Our yarn shop features designer fibers, tools and notions, as well as locally handmade buttons.

Cape Hatteras, Outer Banks, North Carolina

From the ocean to the sound, and the night sky where you can still see the Milky Way, the Outer Banks and the Cape Hatteras National Seashore offer inspirational views, animals in their natural habitat, breathtaking sunrises and sunsets over the ocean, and enough wonder and beauty to inspire us every single day.

Jennifer Johnson, Blue Pelican’s owner and Hatteras Village native, creates most of the work in the shop. We also feature work from other local artists/artisans and craftspeople. When we want to share something that we can’t get locally, we look first for North Carolina crafters and then expand our search to American artisans making unique and limited production items.

And…the “and Yarn” part of our name?  We have two rooms of the 1950’s house that is home to our local small business, full to the gills with yarn and more.  We also have handmade buttons you can’t find anywhere else, kits for crochet, knitting and fiber arts.  You should make the trip to see us if you’re in the area, if only to see just how cleverly we have filled up the shop.  If you want to learn knitting, weaving, crochet, macrame or any other kind of fiber art, we have a teacher who would love to talk more with you.
