Halal Bros./Halal Haven

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 …

Beer Durham

Beer Durham, a bottle shop/growler store, opened in the newish building by the farmer’s market parking lot this past summer.

In addition to shelves of beer, Beer Durham has few inside tables, two outside tables, 20 taps, and a few wines by the glass. You can enjoy your pint in the store or take it home in a re-fillable growler.

We’ve stopped in after the farmer’s market to grab a sixer, popped in to have a quick dinner at a food truck and enjoy a flight, and gone to …

Gregoria’s Brunch

We put up a quick post about Gregoria’s back in 2012, but since then they’ve moved buildings, expanded their menu and started offering brunch on Sundays.

It’s getting harder and harder to find a brunch spot in Durham where one can just stroll in grab a table and relax until noon rolls around and the bloodies and mimosas start flowing. But Gregoria’s is still off the beaten path enough when it comes to Durham’s dining scene, that you can easily walk in on a Sunday morning no …

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 …
