alt.eats.columbus was started by the creators of TacoTrucksColumbus. Our inspiration for this blog was our taco truck research – in exploring the less traveled (by us, at least) parts of town in which taco trucks typically reside, we realized that there are a wealth of (primarily, though not exclusively immigrant run) restaurants that seem to be largely ignored or unknown by most.
As foodies with an adventurous streak, our take was simple and unanimous – this could not stand! So, we endeavor, along with friends and foodies we’ve met along the way, to explore the unusual and the ‘off-the-beaten-path’ in search of the strip mall sublime.
Our format mimics that of TacoTrucks, which is to say that we provide more of an overview than an in-depth review. Our primary desire is to provide exposure for these restaurants, so in the interest of breadth (number of restaurants covered) our overviews will, by necessity, lack the depth of the ‘three visit’ review. We want to whet your appetite in every sense and consider your comments to be an integral part of the discussion. If you’ve visited any of the restaurants on this site, let us know!
