Authentic ethnic of ANY ethnicity except N.C. , IN N.C.

Hoo boy. My English teacher would not approve of my first post - not clear enough.

OK, I'm looking for authentic ethnic food IN N.C., specifically anywhere between and including Winston-Salem and Charlotte, but not looking for BBQ, liver pudding or any other authentic southern specialty. (altho I DO like such things, a lot.)

Authentic Mexican, Peruvian, Hungarian, Senegalese... but not North Carolinian.

Especially hoping to find places that haven't made their food "safe" for the average American eater - left out the offal, or the fermented fish, or half the spices - or "fused" it with something else just to be trendy.

Help me out, and if you ever come to Vermont I'll make you pancakes w/ maple syrup and fried Lebanon bologna on the side.
