Carpe Durham – Well-written and well-photographed reviews of Durham, NC restaurants, with a focus on places not usually frequented by restaurant reviewers (taquerias, soul food places, etc.). A great site if you live in or near Durham, especially if you want to dine off the beaten path. The Carpe Durham tagline is “Ramblings about food from the basement of Duke Law School by people who know nothing about food or the law.” Well put.
VarmintBites – Another interesting, well-written food blog with a Triangle area emphasis. Written by Dean McCord, a self-described “Raleigh-based father of 4 children (ages 8-14), who eats too much, cooks for his wife just about every day, and has an opinion on most anything,” VarmintBites features posts on all sorts of food-related subjects. McCord has a good sense of humor and likes barbecue, so he is a-okay in our book.
