R E A D U S O N L I N E A T W W W . C I T Y S O C I A L . C O M Don't Miss Out There is definitely a rapid expansion of the restaurant scene in Baton Rouge. So, we're telling you not to miss out! You'll be so thrilled to see that international cuisine, too, is on the rise. Again, we're here to tell you that you are not to miss out. Check out what we're excited for you to try below. And guess what? No need to trek too far for these global eats. Los Alvarez - Honduran Cuisine This is a hidden gem, folks! It's a cozy restaurant owned by the sweetest family: the Alvarez family. It's a family affair with generations of relatives cooking up all the traditional Honduran eats. Don't leave without trying the Granadas Catrachas—a flour tortilla pouch filled with chicken, rice and mozzarella cheese. Also, the Pastelitos…oh my, yum! They are corn tortilla, stuffed with chicken (or ground beef), cabbage, pickled vegetables and lightly fried. Surrounding the interior of the restaurant are scenes from their beautiful country. So, be sure to come by to not only enjoy the delicious food, but stay for the comforts of their hospitality. They are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, seven days a week. Curry N Kabab If you have never tried Pakistani food, head on over to this other hidden gem. If you blink, you'll miss it, so follow your GPS carefully. Find them on Coursey off of Sherwood Forest Boulevard. Their array of dishes cooked with incredible sauces and spices will spark your interest to return time after time. The owner and his daughter (the chef) are so kind and truly make all their guests feel right at home. You'll want to try the chicken or lamb Karahi, which is a blend of tomatoes, bell peppers, onions and extraordinary spices. You can definitely still enjoy some of the more traditional Indian dishes, also. It is not fast food, but if you are interested in something quick, they do offer plate lunches, but anticipate a longer wait for dinner items because they're made-to-order. Poke Loa These spots are popping up all over Baton Rouge. What is poke, you ask? It's a native Hawaiian cuisine. Poke typically means to dice or to cut crosswise and, in the case of this cuisine, raw fish is used. This restaurant specializes in building-your-own poke bowl with the diced/cut raw fish plus rice or noodles, fresh vegetables and a Hawaiian- inspired sauce to mix in with it. It's quite the concept, actually, and super heart-healthy, too. The invention of the build-your-own bowl, wrap or sandwich has grown very popular, but this gives more of a Hawaiian twist. Be sure to visit them at their new Louisiana location on Highland Road by LSU. International Cuisine Here In Baton Rouge Los Alvarez - Pastelitos - photo by Jenni C. Poke Loa - photo by Linda V.
