As adventurous as I am, it's a challenge to branch out of the restaurants I frequent and try new food. Well this month I made it around to trying a collection of good eats.
Price Range: $8 - $15 + TIP
The Fold serves Mexican food with a kick on Old Cantrell Road. The inside of the restaurant is one you'll remember with motorcycles hanging from the ceiling, a bar, colorful seating, and an outdoor patio.
They also have BBQ pork tamales and spicy ones with jalapeño. The tacos are another popular choice. They have many different choices but I went with the beef and chicken. Both dishes come with a side of rice and my tamales came with black beans too. I highly recommend The Fold to any Mexican food fanatic.
STAR OF INDIA RESTAURANT & BAR
Price Range: $12- $25 + TIP
Star of IndiaI've been raving about Indian food ever since I tried Banana Leaf last spring. not only had phenomenal food but also incredible service and atmosphere.
My dish was the Chicken Curry with naan (which is a pita-like bread). My friends got lamb and goat, all of which I enjoyed but I naturally preferred mine the most. Chicken Tikka Masala is another Indian favorite of mine. Don't go there in a hurry! The atmosphere is very laid back and you're given a generous amount of time to review the menu. The price tag was a little more than I'm usually comfortable with, but is justified from the large portion size and overall experience.
Price Range: $8 - $13 (no tip)
This little Asian restaurant that used to be a bank is located downtown. I had no idea of its whereabouts 'til a friend of mine suggested it for dinner together.
Their dumplings, hot rolls, and noodles are their specialties I was especially impressed with the chicken dumplings. You can choose a non-spicy, medium, or spicy sauce to top of your choice of dish.
I got the non-spicy sauce with the medium sauce on the side (it was SO hot). You can top your dish with a selection of spinach, greens, and other toppings.
I recommend getting a side of carrots! They're almost sweet and are great by themselves or on top of your dish.
Stop by Three Fold for dine in or carry-out next time you're downtown.
This should give you a good little selection of good eats around Little Rock. More coming soon!
