    Best Pizza in the Triangle

    Mellow Mushroom is a joke. The best pies are from Cinelli's (I'm fond of the one @ North Hills & Wake Forest) Also, for non-ny style I can't believe no one wrote about Moonlight (corner of morgan & boylan) which is fab, and captial creations. Bella Monica's pies are good, you can even get them frozen @ Whole Foods.
  3. When I was growing up in the mtns of nc in the 1980s beans and cornbread was a regular item on the school lunch menu, along with a side of greens and the option of a box of buttermilk. Somehow I do not think the way Asheville is now that it would be on the menu. Meanwhile, thanks for the inspiration. I've bemoaning, make that BEANMOANING my sparse pantry and yet, I am going to have a tasty dinner tonight.

    Z Kitchen

    this north cackalackian is ready for this kind of food & experience. I have already cut and pasted the url for this thread to share with a friend and my father. There is a scene for this, I think you'll have to though, spread the word outside of the college community and into the rest of the triangle. Go hang out at some restaurant bars, give waitstaff your card...I say post a cryptic message here and there. I also suggest deleting this thread and perhaps posting something about your cooking, and the regular folks will know to tell others. As far as people selling food out of thier own kitchens, I think it happens more than we realise. Like this man who used to sell breakfast at my office. Every day he'd show up with biscuits, danishes and hardboiled eggs--IN A SUITCASE!!!

    Dash and Dine

    My three faves- 1)canned beans, usually chickpeas black beans drained and sauted briefly with garlic and some hot red pepper w. some rice (those precooked bags of rice are great for the lazy and cook in 90 seconds), and some bagged salad. 2)Quesadilla-cheese tortilla salsa and frying pan. a tad classier 2)spaghetti with clam sauce-garlic, white wine(or not), one can of chopped clams, Parsely (optional), and red pepper flakes--I posted this recipe eons ago on the recipe gullet.
  6. Michelle thank you so much, funnily enough I have been contemplating making aliyah of late (for everyone--that is immigrating to Israel) and this blog totally tugged at my heart & stomach rings! It made me think of my time on Kibbutz, like the person who posted above me (Ma'Ale Hachmisha), being able to eat fresh food that wasn't too far from its sorce, getting scolded in the shuk for touching the tomatoes a little too long. It also made me realize how much I missed out on as well! I never knew about the rice spices for instance. Thank you & I"ll be anxiously awaiting a Part III
  7. are you locked into 9th street? If you are not, and you want a nice dinner--Nana's gets my vote!
  8. News 14 had a story today it is here, plus video: http://rdu.news14.com/content/top_stories/....asp?ArID=87382
  9. While I loved falafel all over Israel, I recall my favorite experiences were in Haifa, which seemed to have the most options for toppings, basically a salad bar. Granted this was 13 years ago, Daniel is it still the case?

    William, what street is this located on? Also, did you happen to notice if they have late night hours. I want those fries!

    Milltown

    Hi, did you happen to notice if they have any vegetarian entrees? I am going up there with a friend who is a vegetarian this weekend for dinner, and this sounds like a good place to try out and in my price range. Thanks.
  12. Another decent N. Raleigh place for pizza is a new place called Dominic's. Both my husband and our neighbor (former NJers) say it's the closest thing they've found here for NY pizza. Dominic's is located in Poyner Place, behind Triangle Town Center. ←
  13. great post. 9N9 rocks, I wish there were more Ban Mi places around I felt no guilt having a three dollar lunch there--sandwhich & soda. As for danny's their grilled corn and fried okra! YUM!
  14. CARY! CARY! UGH Why must they put cool stuff like this in a place that is devoid of culture, a big sprawl of matching boxes. As excited as I am about the store, I am not excited about driving there. Seriously, I never understood why some stores choose Cary over Raleigh, or Durham over Raleigh. Sour grapes aside, can someone please educate me on this?
