Located at the corner of Wilmington and Davie St. in Red Hat Tower, bu•ku: Global Street Food is a local restaurant telling a global story. Inspired by foods found in pushcarts and hawker stalls, bu•ku serves an array of street foods from around the world. The common link between them: they are all foods that people love. Working within different regional traditions, the menu brings together complex and flavorful dishes that have been honed over generations. Foods like Thai Papaya Salad, Empanadas and the Aloo Chana Chaat can be found on the street corners of Bangkok, Oaxaca and Delhi. These are foods that have been eaten by communities for hundreds of years. Bu•ku strives to convey the immediate thrill a traveler feels experiencing these new tastes for the first time. The Global Street Food menu is a new type of dining, designed for the type of mix and match tasting and plate-sharing that sparks conversation. This is a locally owned and operated restaurant that opened to fill a growing niche in the Triangle; a place where people with different nationalities can come to eat something familiar, while at the same time, locals can try something they've never had before. The casual fine-dining atmosphere and large private banquet room make bu•ku well-suited for romancing a significant other, meeting up with friends or holding a special event. The menu represents a commitment to serve high quality products as bu•ku sources produce locally whenever possible. They also aim to serve as many types of diners as possible with Gluten Free and Vegetarian selections continuing to grow. Global Street Food naturally lends itself to a fresh, fast, affordable downtown lunch with healthy options. The bu•ku BAR offers a culinary-inspired approach to cocktails, hand-crafted beer and wine, and the Sunday World Tour Buffet Brunch is another can't miss in downtown Raleigh!
