We have been going to Motorco for a while (their Bloody Mary's really are the best in the triangle), so we were excited when we saw the menu for Part's and Labor. The prices are on par with the food trucks that frequent this area, as is the quality. I think they knew they had to compete with all the good food and variety and they have done a good job. Everything we've had on their menu is good.

The artichoke beinets are delicious, puffy, and you would eat the dipping sauce alone if no one was looking. You get four to five, so it's perfect to share.

The Veggie Samosas are wonderful - crusty and flaky pastry around a potato based filling that's delicately spiced. The tomato chutney is just a bit spicy and worth remembering it's on the plate (if you can wait long enough to drop any piece of the pastry in it). The somosa is fairly large.

My husband had the Churrasco Slider with chimmichurri - he informed me that it was delicious and he would share next time! It's small, but hearty.

The Moto Bahn is good for a non viet place (better than City Bev's). Good pickled veggies, lots of cilantro, and a mild pate. It's also very large, so a good deal if you're hungry.

The Fried Oyster salad is not huge, but it's a good meal and very light. It comes with a bit cucumber onion salad.

The Potato Latkes might be my favorite thing here. You get two giant potato latkes, but the star is the spiced apple sauce that comes with it. If there are two of you and you're getting other things, share an order. Or get two, you may want them all for yourself!

If you haven't been, head over there next Sunday for Bloody Brunch. It's an inexpensive brunch option that does not short change you on the quality.

It is GREAT that there is now a place to get 'bar food' in Durham that is nothing like your traditional 'bar food.' Parts and Labor does an excellent job of upping the ante on the typical snacky bar menu while keeping their prices extremely reasonable and quantities satisfying. While attending the Regulator Bookshop's annual Durham Pun Championship at Motorco, I had occasion to sample several of the Parts & Labor dishes and they were all excellent. I enjoyed the edamame salad with jicama, garbanzos and cucumber, and also loved the beef filet slider with chimmichuri sauce on brioche. My date enjoyed the pork & beans (which he got without the pork so I could enjoy them too), and also a cheeseburger slider with bacon jelly and carmelized onions. Everything was tasty, well priced, and generous quantities. It was a pleasure to be able to take in dinner and a show at the same time without breaking the bank. The food was a little slow coming out, but I'm sure as they continue to work out the kinks they'll get faster. They're clearly headed for success and I will definitely be back regularly.
