We’ve all had the classic American meal of a burger, fries and a coke.  As delicious as classic comfort food can be, it’s fun to mix it up every now and then and step into the world of unique ethnic cuisine that can be difficult to find in the South.  A hub of culture and diversity, Greater Raleigh is the area to venture next time you would like to find the perfect ethnic meal to thrill your taste buds.

If you would like to sink your teeth into the fine flavors of Afghan cuisine, visit Unaabi Grill in Cary.  You may not know how to pronounce half of the items on their menus, but the detailed descriptions of each dish will have your mouth watering before you even order.

For authentic Cuban cuisine, look no further than Cary’s Havana Grill.  This laidback restaurant offers Cuban flavors at breakfast, lunch and dinner, so you can get your ethnic food fix at any time of day.  Carmen’s Cuban Café & Lounge in Morrisville is also a hot spot for Cuban, Latin and Spanish dishes.  Come any weekend to enjoy live music and nothing but the best traditional cuisine.

Afghan and Cuban flavors are just a small sampling of what Greater Raleigh has to offer those who would like to venture outside of standard American cuisine.  Keep an eye out for more posts on unique ethnic restaurants in the area coming up soon!
