Belgian Waffology

Run by François Kerckhof and his wife, Belgian Waffology is serving up Liege and Brussel style waffles in the Triangle.

The couple, originally from Belgium, came to North Carolina in 2012 and decided to bring a taste of home to Durham. The waffle recipe, the waffle irons, the sugar, the chocolate and even the giant waffle on the truck are all from Belgium.

Brussel waffles are the classic (to Americans anyway) yeasty, fluffy, squares and the Leige are dense, chewier and made with pearl sugar.

Belgian Waffology’s menu is extensive …

Town Hall Burger and Beer

This new burger and beer joint popped up near Southpoint a few months ago and we stopped in looking for a quick meal outside of the food court.

Town Hall Burger and Beer isn’t a place I’d want to spent a ton of time – it has a few bar stools but they’re right by the order counter, it has a few TVs but they’re all relatively small and not ideal for game watching and it has a dozen or so tables but none of them really designed …

Yamazushi – Kaiseki

MEZ covered Yamzushi back in 2011 when there was a sushi menu, appetizers and entrees. Yamazushi has changed since then. Back then, MEZ sang Yamazushi’s praises for the quality of the food, the attention to detail, the presentation and the unique flavors. Their menu then hinted at the potential in owner’s George and Mayumi Yamazawa’s cuisine.

Yamazushi now just offers one fixed price dinner option a night, eight courses presented in a traditional Japanese style call Kaiski for $85 a person.

This small intimate space feels like you’ve been invited into the Yamazawa’s …

Piedmont Durham Brunch

Remember those days of hitting the farmer’s market, strolling into Piedmont, ordering Eggs Piedmont and settling down for some bluegrass music? Piedmont Brunch used to popular and it was a sad day in Durham when they suspended it.

Now, thankfully, it’s back. They’ve been serving just a few weeks and the crowds aren’t back yet, but the great food certainly is. We popped in two weeks ago after making the rounds at the market. Brunch is served starting at 10:30 am and the menu is made up of a wide variety …

The Pit Durham

Not much needs to be said about this new addition to the Rigsbee block. It’s been covered extensively elsewhere. Honestly, the valet stand makes me cringe, but I do look forward to taking advantage of the coming rooftop patio.

The atmosphere is nice – it’s large and airy with lots of subway tile and metal seating. The wall full of cleavers is a nice touch. But something about it just feels like a joint that business folks take out of town clients to to …

Sourwood Brewing Company

Another new fun beverage on tap in Durham is Sourwood Cider. We were able to snag a glass of the tasty cider on tap at Geer Street Garden. From Sourwood’s facebook page, Sourwood is making European-style dry ciders.

It’s a refreshing change from many of the super sweet ciders available. With the every growing part of the population avoiding gluten, a local cidery is an exciting addition to the bull city.

Sourwood describes their cider as “crisp, slightly tart, and dry with a light apple nose. It has been compared …
