CHARLOTTE ETHNIC FOOD RECOMENDATIONS??
Traveling in for a girls weekend..2 foodies looking for unusual ethnic spots..any suggestions??
Can you define more about what you mean by "unusual" Charlotte has chinese, korean, malaysian, mexican, cuban....but I don't know that I'd call any of that unusual?
Dim Sum on Central. They have cart service on the weekends and its big fun. At the table, different servers come by with carts of different foods to offer you. You pick and choose which ones you want. You can also order off the menu. I recommend the pork buns, shrimp-stuffed eggplant, duck sticky rice, shrimp balls,etc... too many to list.
Vietnam Grille on South Blvd. is another good option. Delicious pho and other traditional vietnamese dishes.
Uptown there is a new upscale Thai restaaurant called Thai Basil. I haven't been yet, but heard good things. It seems like a good dinner spot for a girls weekend crowd. http://www.eatatbasil.com/
Another good lunch or dinner spot would be Pio Pio for Columbian & Peruvian fare. Nice atmosphere and delicious rotisserie chicken with rice & bean and two delicious dipping sauces. They also serve ceviche, fried plaintains and several other dishes. http://www.360charlotte.com/FoodandBe...
Eat well & have fun!!!
