To say that Sacramento has a lot of places to get some good food is truly an understatement. And the person saying it has probably never been to Sacto, at least not in a very long time.
Local Sacramentans know that the options for food are not just good, they are excellent! That’s not just because we have a lot of stellar restaurants in and around the river city, it’s also because there is just so much diversity located in this small big town.
Did you know that the US census bureau ranks Sacramento as the 5th most diverse city in the US in regard to “Ethno-Racial & Linguistic Diversity”? True story.
And all that diversity makes for an extremely broad choice when it comes to foods and restaurants. Hey, everyone, from where ever they may hail from, wants to eat a good meal. And, with so many people from all parts of the globe settling here in Sacto, well, you know, they’re going to want to eat good food that tastes a little like home. And that’s just a plus for all the rest of us.
It goes without saying that you can find some authentic Mexican as well as Asian dishes here. California’s proximity to the Pacific Islands and the “far east”, and also it’s shared boarder with Mexico basically make that a given. … jus’ scratchin’ the surface.
Dig a little deeper and you’ll find traditional dishes from the land locked countries of the central belly of the Asian continent. Afghan, Pakistani, and even authentic Uzbek offerings can be found with a simple search on Yelp!
And Sacramento also has something for those European expats also. Whether you’re German, French, English, or from Eastern Europe. Sacramento has you covered. And, if you’re looking for Italian food don’t think that I forgot about you. It just goes without saying that there’s more than any number of good Italian restaurants to choose from.
Even though we have been talking about more exotic fare (at least from the US perspective), we can’t fail to mention the fact that the capital of California has some of the best American food that you can ever taste. And it doesn’t matter whether we’re talking breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
Sacramento is home to some of the best burgers you’ll ever struggle to eat without making a mess. And then there’s the standard American breakfast of eggs, bacon, and toast… anyway you want ’em. And let’s not forget America’s own BBQ dishes. Whether you’re looking for Soul Food or just “Down home cookin'”, there is something for everyone here in the heart of California.
