Downtown Burlington without a car
Hi, I'll be in downtown Burlington without a car for one night, a Monday. I'm staying at the Hilton. I had though to eat in the Five Spice Cafe, which I remember very fondly from when I was in Burlington several times perhaps 12 or 15 years ago, but I gather that restaurant is now closed for some time. I am interested in eating somewhere to which I can walk, somewhere not super expensive. I love ethnic food--Indian/Nepali and pretty much all other Asian (except Japanese) food, all kinds of Latin food, Quebecois, southern American, eastern European, German, Spanish. . . I also love good desserts and breakfasttype food. I am not interested in overpriced nouvelle or vegan/local grown, nor am I interested in brew/burger type food or pizza. Also never very interested in eating in hotels (usually overpriced). Place does not need fancy trimmings, though I'd prefer something more than takeout. Any suggestions? Thanks a bunch.
A Single Pebble is the place to go. Try the red oil dumplings or chicken dumplings for an appetizer. The main dish portions are large, enough for two people, so you will have enough for leftovers for the late night munchies in your hotel room. Five Spice was the best!!! But alas, it burned down. Das Bierhaus is in its place and is ok austrian/german food, but if you like asian and indian as much as I do, I would stick to the Pebble.
