Durham Noshing

Durham Restaurants The Working World

Good afternoon, good evening, and goodnight.
I’m glad yall enjoyed the Grand Tour. Looking back, I put a lot of work into decorating the apartment and I’m happy to be able to just sit back and enjoy it.
I’m especially enjoying the couch these days. I think a combination of the long weekend and too much partying threw off my circadian rhythm because I’m back to the zombie woman and headaches that I experienced in my first weeks of work. I’ve woken up at 2:30 am with a terrible headache twice in the past three days:( Remember when my body didn’t care/notice what my sleeping habits were? I’m so sensitive and I hate it.
The idea of a dinner date is what got me through today. It’s been a little rough transitioning from spending time with Matt and enjoying a comfortable lifestyle to the more hectic and financially restrictive lifestyle in Durham, so sandwich shop weekday dinner dates have become my thing. Durham is the king of casual dinner cafes. This evening, we ventured to Nosh, an eclectic cafe with a simple menu.


Instead of using numbers to identify tables, Nosh advertises homeless animals in need of loving owners. How cool is that?


I ordered a salad piled with bacon, blue cheese, egg, tomato, cheddar, and candied walnuts.


This salad was far from boring, but I wasn’t sure how exciting it would when I ordered, so I got the curried almond couscous on the side and dumped it on top of the salad.


The flavor combination was divine and the famous Nosh cracker made for convenient scooping. I will be back!

I’m headed out for a quick gathering before bed and I’m trying a new spinning class in the morning!!!

    That’s a great idea about the way they use homeless animals to identify table numbers! There are twp restaurants around me that do a similar thing and donate a portion of every meal to one of the local animal shelters 🙂

    I agree! What a great substitute for table numbers! That salad and curried almond couscous looks and sounds delicious!

    Loving the eats in Durham! I’m definitely the kind of person who frets about whether or not I’ve ordered the right thing or not, so side dishes are no stranger to my meals out 🙂
