Soul food joints in the triangle: Please name me some suggestions?

Jamaican Joints? A taste of Jamaica in Cary(closest spot near me) and Lee's Kitchen are good, I like Lee's kitchen prices better, though. Can you name me some more places to check out?

I was happy two new Korean spots have opened in Cary, but a Bulgogi Beef plate cost like 16/17 dollars, can you name me some more spots? Mixed in Chapel Hill was alright, there was a even better spot on Franklin street that had Korean Tacos, so if any of your suggestions have Korean Tacos on the menu it would be great. (don't matter where in the triangle)

Breakfast joints, name me some spots with good prices and good portions, also places with turkey sausage and turkey bacon.

Went to this chili cook off competition, had this banging Texas cowboy chili made with brisket, any places where that is on the menu? also any places out there with goat burgers(there's this nice spot in saxapahaw but I need a spot that's closer. A place with wild game burgers would be cool too.

Lucha Tigre in Chapel Hill is Mexican/Asian fusion. They have Korean tacos usually. Menu changes.

There's a new place on Franklin St where the other Korean place used to be, Ms Mong. It's sort of a Mongolian BBQ fusion place it looks like with lots of different Asian influences. They have Banh Mi painted on the window in big letters. One of these days I'll get around to trying it.

Breakfast — Breadmen's and Elmos in Chapel Hill and Carrboro for cheap eats. Breadmen's is a little less expensive. Not sure on the turkey sausage.

How are the Jamaican spots? Is it just a big plate of Jamaican food, like home cooking? That's my fave, but I'll take what I can get.

Been to ms mong's it's good but I miss the place that was there before(Chop Stix) even though one of the cooks now works for ms mong and told me last time I was there he would make some of the menu items from chop stix if I wanted.

Been meaning to check out both Breadmen's and Elmos, going to have to hit those up this weekend.

Thanks for the Lucha Tigre suggestion.

Both Taste of Jamaica(Cary) and Lee's Kitchen(Raleigh and Durham) are good, and yeah it's exactly a big plate of Jamaican food, like home cooking. I like Lee's kitchen the best just because it has better prices.

Jamaica Jamaica on NC 55 is simply horrible. I have no idea how it stays in business.

Durham is your best location for soul food. Bullock's BBQ is the best known, but there are also the Chicken Hut and Bowick's Ark, both off Fayetteville St. Backyard BBQ Pit in RTP may be a little closer to you.

Jerk Master in Raleigh has good jerk chicken, and other entrees. I haven't compared it with Lee's enough to say which is better but they're both good. I was disappointed when I went to Lee's for lunch because I got a tiny portion of chicken, but it was tasty. Rice & peas were better at Lee's. Jerk Master appeared to have actually barbequed their jerk chicken whereas a lot of smaller restaurants up north (where I'm from) cook it on the stove. Don't recall which way Lee's did it.
