in columbia, out of town dining, wine in the city

Now that I’ve been working in Columbia more often, I’ve had a lot of time to explore around town. Mostly through word of mouth (shout out to new friends at Motor Supply Bistro), I’ve been eating particularly well the last few weeks. Below is a Flickr album with some of the shots I’ve taken.

Included in the photo set: Taqueria Mi Pueblita II, Paul’s Philadelpha Eatery, Taqueria Jasmine, and Baan Sawan. Baan Sawan is the coolest Thai restaurant I’ve been to in a long time. The bartender and proprietor (and obvious wine geek), Sam, says he runs a “fine dining restaurant, that just happens to serve Thai food”. A comprehensive post on Baan Sawan can be found here.

    Glad to hear Motor Supply is still good! Did you try Mediterranean Tea Room?

    Thanks Sophia. I can’t recommend Baan Sawan enough. Went there again last night and sat at the bar. Fantastic food, enjoyed some nice wines, great experience. If it’s 1-2 people, I recommend the bar, and let Sam take care of you.
