Need an outlet for all that holiday spirit? Concerned about the health of the environment? Consider donating to the following Kickstarter campaign for GreenToGo.

The reuse/recycling advocacy group  Don’t Waste Durham is starting a reusable takeout container program called GreenToGo. The program will reduce the waste from single-use takeout containers. The group has already persuaded many local restaurants to discontinue their use of styrofoam containers, as you may have already taken note of around town. One of the main players in the group is a …

Boricua Soul is the truck of Toriano Fredericks, a familiar name in the Triangle food world. He’s the guy behind La Buena Vida. Boricua Soul is a blend of Puerto Rican and soul food. The result is a menu made up of hoe cake sandwiches, chicken and waffles, empanadas and mac and cheese. We caught up with them at the soul food event at Fullsteam a few weeks ago.

We tried an empanada stuff with rich, carnitas like pork. The chicken and waffle – a pretty classic take that would have …

They also have an entire booze menu with options like honey bourbon.

You get one scoop for $4 or two …

If Chez Moi was in a trendy store front downtown, there’d be a line around the block. As it stands, you should hit up the Chez Moi bakery anytime you happen upon their van, especially when their parked outside cocoa Cinnamon and you can pair one of their baked goods with a cup of coffee.

Chez Moi keeps their menu simple with just a few options daily. Always on the board is a rum cake, a panna cotta and an ice cream “cakewich.” It’s for this cakewich that …

As I’m going to catch up on some long over due posts (apologies, we had a baby in August), I’m going to keep the next few posts short and sweet. First up, Soom Soom pockets.

Soom Soom brings a bit of beloved Mediterranian Deli in Chapel Hill to the streets of Durham. Med Deli makes Soom Sooms pitas for them out of organic flour. We tried their chicken shwarma pita recently, a bit pricey at $9 with no sides but you’re paying for the quality, responsibly sourced ingredients. It …

The Cousins Maine Lobster truck serves up fresh Maine lobster rolls in a chilled/mayo version or a hot, butter (Connecticut-stye) version. They also offer lobster and shrimp tacos, clam chowder, lobster bisque, tater tots covered in lobster and cilantro cream and the classic Maine dessert – whoopie pies.

This is a locally-owned truck that is a part of a bigger Cousins Maine Lobster franchise, that many folks might remember from their turn on the popular show Shark Tank. Apparently they have a direct connection with some lobstermen in Maine …

The Halal Bros. food truck is the brainchild of two childhood friends from upstate New York who wanted to bring New York street food and authentic Pakistani favorites to the streets of Durham. Halal means permitted or lawful. Halal foods are foods that are allowed under Islamic dietary guidelines. Halal means there are no pork products on the Halal Bros. food truck. The menu is made up of beef, lamb, chicken, vegetarian and gluten-free options.

We stopped by on a recent Friday night when they were parked outside of Cocoa Cinnamon. It …

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 …

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 …

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 …
