The Wicked Biscuit Co.

Durham’s Wicked Biscuit Co. is a truck serving up, as the name implies, biscuits. For specializing in one food group (it’s the South – biscuits are a food group), they actually have a pretty diverse menu with a variety of savory and sweet sandwich options. The sandwiches are served on a variety of biscuits – blue cheese, cinnamon, butter, etc.

These are biscuits filled with the likes of chorizo, bacon, fried eggs, apples, sweet cream cheese  - it’s hard to go wrong. We opted for the …

Bull City Ciderworks

Bull City Ciderworks, located on a side street between downtown and Golden Belt, feels a bit like Fullsteam a few years ago. The taproom is offering five ciders by the glass, growlers or a flight for four tasters for $7. Located next to a body shop, the taproom has a handful of tables and picnic benches, a cornhole set and a lovely little bar.

It has that somewhat ubiquitous aesthetic that we’re all pretty into these days – furniture made out of pallets, chalkboards, dark wood and exposed …

In just six weeks, Whiskey has been transformed into a craft beer bar called Criterion. Slightly brighter, Criterion feels like a cross between Surf Club and Whiskey. Gone are the dress code, the cigar smoke and the artisan cocktails – the bar and the bathrooms are the same.

Criterion has been renovated with a line of 10 booths, a few two-person tables and some beer garden tables out front.

Rhys is still at the helm but also at the heart of this new …

Heavenly Buffaloes

There’s a new great, magical thing in the Bull City – a joint that delivers wings, waffle fries and beer until 3 am on Friday and Saturday nights. Seriously – wings and waffle fries – delivered. And not just any wings, Heavenly Buffaloes is offering (also for take-out) cage-free wings in a variety of flavors and styles.   The beer, which we appreciate, is only the tall boy variety or big bottles (22 oz.+).

Heavenly Buffaloes opened the in the small take-out building on Markham, just across from …

The Triangle officially has its first restaurant with a completely gluten-free kitchen – it was only a matter of time. I personally (luckily) have no need for a gluten-free environment, but I do have enough friends who forego all things gluten to understand the appeal of being able to walk into a restaurant and order absolutely anything on the menu (other than the beer, of course).

Not surprising from the guy behind Blu Seafood downtown, but Primal is going …

Sol Taco

Sol Taco is a southern-inspired taco truck that is serving up locally-sourced ingredients on freshly made flour tortilla shells. It’s pretty awesome. All you really need to know is – BBQ and pickled okra in a taco. Seriously, BBQ and pickled okra in a taco. Unfortunately for us, Sol Taco mostly sticks to the streets of Raleigh.

We caught up with them outside Beer Durham, Durham’s newest bottle shop, and ordered one of each of their four tacos (buttermilk fried fish, roasted chicken avocado, burger and …

Mi Peru

In the heat of the summer, if it was possible to exist solely on ceviche I would. So when Mi Peru opened, I was pumped about the first Peruvian restaurant in Durham to not just carry the albeit great classic rotisserie chicken, but also classic Peruvian ceviche.

A family venture, Peruvian couple Edwin Vergaray and Gladis Muñoz with the help of their daughter opened Mi Peru just behind the Target shopping center and across from G2B.

We stopped in on a Saturday night and tried the Chorlos …
