Durham has a wide variety of food options to cater to every taste. So much so that it’s even been crowned as the “Tastiest Town in the South” by Southern Living magazine. For a fusion between American Southern and South American cuisine, Luna Rotisserie and Empanadas is the perfect place. They use locally-sourced, fresh ingredients whenever possible, making their food both wholesome and delicious.

Spend your weekend afternoon on Ninth Street – grab a cold beer at Dain’s Place, or enjoy a massive burrito at Durham’s own Cosmic Cantina. Referred to by the Herald-Sun as “Durham’s Greenwich Village,” Ninth Street has something for everyone.

Located near Duke’s east campus is Juju, one of the best places for Asian cuisine in town. Not only do they have great food, but they also have hand-crafted cocktails and an extensive sake selection. It’s the perfect place for a date night, or a night out with friends.
