If you are planning to visit Bloomington this year, you are in for a real treat! Bloomington has almost every cuisine possible including Thai, Turkish, Cajun, Mediterranean, Japanese and more. One of my favorite restaurants is Anatolia, a Turkish restaurant in town. Their red lentil soup is amazing! It is also extremely affordable. Check out their website here: http://www.restaurantanatolia.com
Another Bloomington favorite is Scotty’s. This American grill has the best fried pickles I’ve ever had! To be fair, I’d never had fried pickles (also known as dill chips) before I moved to Indiana, however, they are a must have when you come to visit Bloomington. Here’s the link to their website: http://www.scottysbrewhouse.com/locations/bloomington
Bloomington is also extremely vegetarian friendly, so there is plenty to eat for everyone. The Farm (http://www.farm-bloomington.com) and the Owlery (http://www.theowleryrestaurant.com/location.html) are some of my favorite vegetarian spots. I’ve been a vegetarian for the last 16 years and I have never had an issue eating in Bloomington. Even if you are not at a vegetarian restaurant, there is usually something on the menu you can eat.
