North Dakota

It looks like I'll probably be moving to Williston or Dickinson and will be traveling a lot for work. A few questions: I grew up in the middle of nowhere, so anything within a 200 mile drive is fair game. I've done a lot of searching, but google can only get you so far.

What are the best places to eat in those towns? I'm not picky as long as it's not too processed. The two places that have me intrigued are the thai place in Dickinson, and the Hawaiian place in Williston.

Is there an authentic Mexican place anywhere (I need my vitamin T)?

Are there any ethnic markets besides the asian one in Bismark?

  1. Minot here. One note worthy place here in Minot is "10 North Main"

    Elk, smoked duck, bison steaks... fairly unusual stuff.

    There's also one pretty decent non-chain mexican place in town too, "Mi Mexico".

    Which considering you're 1500 miles from the border, it's head and shoulders above the compitition

      Thanks! Minot is definitely on my radar. I used to go there every summer growing up and into college. I'm glad there is one Mexican place around. I grew up on very authentic latin food, so I was a little worried.

      Have you ever made it up to Regina? I'm curious about it. I've been to a few towns in Canada around that area and have been impressed. Brandon really surprised me.

      The foodie aspect will surprise me, but I'm looking very forward to the ice fishing.
