365 Things to Do in Raleigh - buku: Global Street Food



Downtown Raleigh offers several great restaurants for a night out on the town. Perhaps the most creative and unique of them all is buku (yes, all lower case letters).

buku is located on the corner of E Davie Street and S Wilmington Street.

buku is inspired by roadside food vendors from across the world. You can have bread dishes from India to Columbia, salads from Thailand to Lebanon, and dumplings from China to Poland, just to name a few.

There is also a wide selection of international meat and seafood recipies including ranging from sushi to bar-b-que. Outside seating is available for people wanting a more authentic "street-side" experience, although inside is very well decorated and comfortable.

The recommended way to approach buku's somewhat imposing menu is to order two dishes per person. When I went with one other person, we split four dishes between us. That was definitely enough food, but I think that if you're feeling bold, you could squeeze in a fifth to share.


The picture here is the seared tuna, served topped with greens and a light sauce (yummy!). We also ordered the bar-be-que pike, Lebanese salad, and pierogies.

Also at buku is a full bar featuring a VERY wide selection of beers and wines, and all of your favorite cocktails. The paper in the picture is one side of the menu, and the folded cork is the wine, beer, and speciality drink menu.

Almost every night of the week, buku features a different musical attraction. Just as varied as the food, one night you might be listening to some smooth jazz, and the next sitar music, and then a drum'n'bass duo with turntablist (turntabler?).

Check out buku's website for the upcoming calendar of events, the full menus, and much more!
