It surprises people that even though I’m a restaurant reviewer, I really don’t go out that much. It’s rare for me to go to a restaurant more than twice, unless it’s work-related.
But there are places that I’ve been to many times, the regular spots I go to with my husband. These are my favorite ethnic restaurant in Bridgeport. I’ve written about most of these places, for the Hartford Courant, CTBites and others. Click on the links to read the full reviews.
El Paraiso for lunch. Hearty plates of enchiladas, chile rellenos, or weekend Sunday pozole.
La Mexicana for lunch. Carnitas tacos and fresh melon drinks.
Pho Thom for Vietnamese pho and spring rolls. The link is to their Pho Thom’s FB page because my article in the Courant has disappeared. Where oh where did it go?
It isn’t easy to find good Thai food.
The best place to find excellent Thai restaurants is Queens, N.Y. So I was thrilled to discover RuuThai serves dishes you won’t find anywhere else in Connecticut. Mussels pancakes. Full-flavored curries. Desserts for the adventurous. Here’s a review I wrote for the Hartford Courant Ruuthai, and one I wrote for CTBites Ruuthai’s Kitchen
Be prepared to eat lots of grilled meat at this this Brazilian churrascaria, Pantanal Brazilian Barbecue and Buffet, and schedule a nap afterwards.
I’m happy to add a new great place for Brazilian Barbecue to my growing list, Rancho Pantanal
