Dushanbe Teahouse: Dushanbe Teahouse
This traditional Tajik Teahouse was given to Boulder by its sister city Dushanbe, capital of Tajikistan. After sitting in storage for several years, the pieces of the ornate teahouse were assembled and the restaurant opened in downtown Boulder. The teahouse is a wonderful place to sit by the Boulder creek and have brunch or enjoy a cup of tea (or coffee).
Rhumba is a funky, fashionable restaurant. Its diverse menu has a Caribbean theme. The bar at Rhumba is one of the most popular weekend spots in town, so be prepared for crowds.
Favorite Dish: Any dish served with Mango Salsa
It's very difficult here in...
It's very difficult here in Boulder to nail down a favorite restauraunt because they are constantly changing. But I'll try to give some info on some of the ones that have remained for a couple years at least. Pearl st has many good restauraunts and some really good ones. For Burgers and the best rooftop view go to the West End Pub located- naturally on the west end of Pearl st. In summer, this is THE place to relax, have a beer (or 2) and hang out in the sun after a great day of riding (snow,dirt,asphalt) And it's relatively cheap! Jax Fishhouse $$ (right next door to the West End) has excellent seafood (for landlocked Colorado anyway) and arguably the best martinis in town. It is tiny however so it's a tight squeeze but well worth the wait. And, if you have to wait, why not go next door and grab a beer? I hate chain restauraunts so I won't tell anyone to go to the Cheesecake Factory-so don't!!! There are plenty of hometown restauraunts that offer (far) better food than you can find in the chains anyway. For Indian/Moroccan go to Raz Kassas on 30th street or Mataam Fez on Pearl. Breakfasts are big in Boulder, unfortunately 2 of my favorites are now gone. Nancy's on Walnut and Dot's on Pearl. Dot's was a healthy? greasy spoon in an old gas station on a corner of west Pearl. It was torn down in the name of 'progress' (I have another name for it but can't mention it here!) It was one of the last vestiges of the spirit that was Boulder and is now almost entirely gone. Places to go now are Lucille's (Louisianna style breakfasts) and Rocky Mountain Joe's on Pearl. Another favorite breakfast place of mine is The Buff (The Golden Buff) on Canyon. Great food and heaps of it at a reasonable price. There are tons more but I don't have the time (or will) to go through them here. Oops! I forgot to mention Sushi! MMMMMM!!!!!!!!!
Nope. Ah wait...nope. Sorry.
Favorite Dish: West End-charbroiled Jalepeno Burgers and Fat Tire beer. Jax's-Smoked Salmon pasta with a white-wine cream sauce and Pancetta. Raz Kassas-everything! Breakfasts-Rocky Mountain Scramble-3 eggs, cheese, onions, green peppers, ham, and anything-else- you-got-layin'-around-that-kitchen with fried potatoes and plenty of hot sauce over it all.
Oh 14th St. Grill is my...
Oh 14th St. Grill is my absolute favorite, amazing food, not too pricy and great atmosphere. On the cheap side, I'm a fan of Juanita's mexican and Planet sub.
Favorite Dish: At 14th St., the salads and appetizers are my favorite and a great wine list. Juanita's chicken mole is amazing and almost all the sandwiches at Planet Sub are wonderful.
La Iguana: Summertime and the margaritas flowing
This is a great outdoor summer environment with good frozen margaritas, a popular happy hour, and a magnetic force that keeps you there for hours.
Favorite Dish: Most just come here to drink.
