Anything New in Durham???

Just seeing if there is anything that is must try in Durham. Ive been to all the taquerias, had Korean Tofu soup. Been to all the BBQ places. Hamburgers at Wimpys. Baby Goat stew at Choson OK. Had dinner at Nanas, Four Square, Tonali, and Magnolia Grill. I just havent seen to found anything new lately. So any suggestions?

        Probably. I feel like ive been everywhere in the area and havent found anything new in awhile. Today i did have a lovely Pho at 9N9 and some pretty good banh mi sandwichs there.

          Lovely is perhaps not the best way the describe them. Then again, I'm a hypocrite and have three in waiting in my fridge for toasting later this week.

            The intersection of 54 & 55 in Durham has a high concentration of spots to try. I hit the Nepalese place a couple of months ago. It was pretty interesting. Here's a good write up of that area:

            Also, there's the relatively unexplored reaches of Alston Ave. There seem to be quite a few taquerias in that area, though I've only tried the cinderblock building Mi Pequena (?). I also like Bull City Wings, though they're not worth a special trip from Raleigh. My wife and I think the nachos at the Fed are the best in the area.
            Also, the fresh tortillas and carnitas from Miss Tortilla were awesome.
            Here's another thread on the same topic.
