Unground grub options in the area

These restaurants have been hidden from usual eye.

In highlighting under-appreciated restuarants around the St. Cloud area, I complied a list of my favorites.

Here is a listof some of my favorite unknown spots to eat.

I’ll start with Jules Bistro, a cozy restaurant downtown St. Cloud. It’s the perfect place to get a cup of tea with the girls. They offer many sharable flatbread pizzas for a group of friends, although their most popular dishes are any of the twelve crispy paninis. My favorite dish they offer is the Pad Thai Bowl, which I pair with a cup of Happy Tea!

Next up, my favorite place to grab dinner with my Dad, is Arroy  which was previously known as Sawatdee. Arroy is Thai & Phillino cuisine. You can create your own stir fry or try any of their authentic entrees. One of my top favorites meals is the chicken Pancit made with glass noodles! I always pair it with a plate of their amazing fried rice!

You will experience a one of kind time at Krewe. They serve using a family style dining. The food comes out when it is hot and ready rather than all together. You order everything you want to try and take a scoop from every dish that comes out. They have passed down family recipes used in their cajun cuisine. My favorite meal is their shrimp jambalaya.

My favorite spot to take friends when I want to have some fun with a good meal is MC’s Dug-out. They offer everything from Korean style street tacos to a freshly sliced brisket sandwich. My favorite touch is their three dart throwing games. I can spend hours playing with my dad, friends, or even strangers!
