Finally, back into the swing of regular style posts and happy to do so.  I’m glad to enter a new arena here on Spoonfed as I crack the seal on the part of the triangle that has, to date, alluded me.  Chapel Hill.  Finally after ump-teen years (1 year-9 months, actually) I have been able to breech this town with my initial coverage of a popular spot, Jujube.   Owned and operated by Chef Charlie Deal, Jujube, self proclaimed as ‘Almost Asian’, begins with many of the flavors that one may find as standards of Chinese and Vietnamese cuisines but Chef Deal attempts to shape them a bit with personal manipulations that make the dishes uniquely his.  After years of restauranteur experience building in California, Deal relocated to the Triangle recognizing the potential and relishing in the availability of near found ingredients.  Listen to an interview with Chef Charlie Deal here on ‘Off the Broiler’ for more insights. Deal not only takes an active role in his kitchen but also attempts to stay in touch with his clientele through the restaurant’s blog (here).  Here you will not only find the typical notices of the restaurants specials, events, and weekly happenings but occasionally Deal will pen some posts lending personal insight to the real workings, behind the scenes and the speed bumps that a chef/owner has to confront everyday.  Deal is also owner of ‘Dos Perros‘, in Durham, where Deal shifts focus to another of his passions, authentic Mexican Food.
