Your journey continues

wake forest meets global street food

 

Located in the heart of Wake Forest, the new bu•ku will delight your senses just like our flagship establishment in downtown Raleigh

The name “bu•ku” comes from an international slang twist on the phrase, “Merci, beaucoup,”  meaning, “Thank you, very much.”

Inspired by the pushcarts of street vendors in cities across the globe, we harvest an array of unique and distinct flavors and present them authentically in a virtual kaleidoscope of plates. The common link being, these are foods that people love.

Working within different regional traditions, our menu brings together complex and flavorful dishes that have been honed over generations.  Foods like our Peruvian Hokkaido Diver Scallop Tiradito, Empanadas, and Indian Aloo Chana Chaat can be found on the street corners of Lima, Oaxaca, and Delhi. These are foods that have been shared and developed in their communities for hundreds of years. At bu•ku, we strive to convey the immediate thrill a traveler feels as these foods first cross over the cart and exchange hands into the urban setting.

Our Global Street Food menu is a new type of dining, designed for the type of mix & match tasting and plate-sharing that sparks conversation.  We are a locally owned and operated restaurant that opened to fill a growing niche in the Triangle; a place where people with different backgrounds and nationalities can come to eat something familiar, while at the same time, locals can try something they’ve never had before.

Merci, bu•ku
