lunch at Jujube in Chapel Hill

by | Nov 8, 2008 | Daily life, Food & Drink

Friday was beautiful here in NC, with great fall color, sunshine, and a high fall color of 72, so when Leandra picked me up for lunch we definitely wanted to eat outside. Several places in downtown Chapel Hill have outdoor seating, but the parking is a nightmare, so we decided to go a little further from the UNC campus. We hadn’t been to Jujube in a while, and since they have a small patio, we decided to go there.

I love the “Jujube Bolognese,” a wide-noodle and hoison pork stir-fry dish, so even before we were seated I knew what I would order, but I looked over the menu to see if they had any interesting appetizers. To my surprise, the menu looked small and I couldn’t find my Bolognese. When the waitress came by she confirmed that they were having technical problems in the kitchen and had a limited lunch menu. Unhappiness ensued…

We considered going elsewhere but figured it would take too long, so I ordered the hoison pork sandwich  and a dry apple ale called Éphémère that goes well with Asian-inspired food. The sandwich was tasty, but a little too generous on the carrots and cucumbers and skimpy on the pork, and definitely not my favored Bolognese. Leandra had the chicken and cilantro dumplings and a spicy oyster mushroom curry along with a stout.
