-Burgers are a little hard to come by here in Anchorage, or maybe I am just a picky burger eater, so I stick to one place. Tommy's Burger Stop-- that stella blue burger will live on in my dreams! I am also a chicken sandwich connoisseur, and for that you need to go to a local landmark basically, Lucky Wishbone. The best french fries, chicken sandwich, and milkshakes ever. Period.
-When the rare date night occurs Chris and I go for only a few places, Club Paris (get the prime rib...oh and steak fries), The Crow's Nest, and Whale's Tail. Those last two are in the Captain Cook Hotel, also a place I would highly recommend staying at for a little stay-cation or what have you.
-Things might start to get a little random here, but I have to mention Antonio's Greek Bakery, can you say homemade pita bread and hummus? The salads are amazing, basically everything is good and the owner is the sweetest man you will ever meet, and he will let your children run around and then hand them a piece of baklava! While you are eating at Antonio's you should probably walk across the parking lot to A Pie Stop. You might be full of greek food, but you will want a pie for later. Trust me.
-Shall we move on to coffee? Chris is a coffee fanatic! I am talking knows more about coffee than one human possibly should. He is pretty picky, which has turned me into a low standard coffee snob. So when I am out with him he only likes to go to a couple places, SteamDot, and Black Cup. I looooove SteamDot, their vanilla latte is heavenly! And Black Cup's white mocha is more than worth the drive with screaming kids. Fun fact: you can also buy Black Cup coffee at Target here in town!! Both of these places roast their own beans and you can taste the freshness. We have loaded up on our favorites from both for our trip. Takin' a little piece of Anchorage with us!
Okay....this is getting a little long, and I know I haven't even mentioned so many places. But, if you are visiting the Anchorage area this list should get you started!
I hope everyone has a great weekend, and I hope to see some of you at the Mother's Day event I am hosting at the 5th Avenue Mall on Sunday! If you follow me on snapchat (kelsey_pardonmf) I am sure I will snap the thing to death!
