Dushanbe Teahouse

October 20th, 2011 at 5:36 am

In Boulder, our favorite restaurant, both for atmosphere and food was the Dushanbe Teahouse. The teahouse was a gift to Boulder from its sister city, Dushanbe in Tajikistan. The place had an incredible international menu. I had the Indian Masala Dosa. It was fabulous. Dave enjoyed his paella. Dining room. Ceiling.

On our way to Boulder in September, Dave and I visited Manitou Springs adjacent to Colorado Springs. It’s definitely a touristy place. We stopped at the Sarhara Cafe and enjoyed falafel and hummus and all of that good stuff. Part of the old cog railroad up Pike’s Peak.

Lazy Dog Sports Bar

I loved the grilled salmon salad at the Lazy Dog Sports Bar along Pearl Street in Boulder, Colorado. Loved it so much that we went back a second time. There was an upper deck, but the first time we sat outside at their sidewalk tables – ’cause you can’t dine al fresco in downtown Emporia. […]
