A friend and I tried Bu-Ku (the new Fins) in downtown Raleigh for lunch yesterday. We expected lunch to give us a preview of what we expected to be the more extensive dinner menu. But no... Lunch was completed different -- really just mainstream American lunch fare tweaked a bit. The menu includes: Burger, Philly Steak, Chicken Salad, Greek Salad and a few tamely spiced (based on our selections) ethnic offerings-- not a single dish that appears on the dinner menu. What a bummer!
My Malaysian Curry Chicken Sandwich was very bland and my friend"s "Banh Mi" wasn't much better. Much better to walk up the street to Spize Cafe for their delectable and more fiery Baguette version.
The waiter brought us the dinner menu which sounded much better. Too bad we couldn't even get a taste.
