The Restaurant

Now Open at American Tobacco Campus

(CLOSED FOR VACATION UNTIL OCTOBER 20th)

No need to chase the truck. Find our expanded and changing menu at the heart of historic American Tobacco Campus in Durham, North Carolina.

The Truck

The Soul patrol

The Soul Patrol is a 1999 Freightliner MT55 Tool Truck. We immediately fell in love with the looks of this truck; the strong front grill and the chrome pipes were unique qualities we had not seen in any of the trucks we considered or seen on the streets.

The food

“PUERTO RICAN INSPIRED SOUL FOOD TO FEED THE SOUL”

Mixing and experimenting with foods and techniques of our grandmother’s kitchen’s led us to many thoughts, discussions and learning about two very different cuisines with similar roots. Both cuisines were the by-product of mixing of West African, Native Indian and European ingredients and techniques as a result of the African slave trade. These foods tell the story and act as a vehicle to transport history from the past.
