Hey Columbia. 👋 We don’t know about y’all but Lauren and I are seriously missing traveling this year. Fortunately, Columbia is a great place to experience the world through international cuisine – no airplane required.
So, we’ve compiled a list of the amazing international restaurants and markets in the Midlands, so you can add some global flavor to your palate. If you know of a place we missed, let us know.
Have you ever seen a recipe online that you really wanted to try, but the list of ingredients was so new + overwhelming that you just thought, “Let’s leave this to the professionals,” and ordered takeout instead?
Look no further than these local international markets to shop to help make those challenging recipes less daunting.
Bonus: You can often find inexpensive staples (like tortillas, spices, fruits + vegetables) at these markets, so they can complement your regular grocery haul. 🥬
Note: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and related restrictions, some businesses may currently be closed or offering limited services. Check their websites or social media for possible changes.
