Short Order: Columba’s Food Truck

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Short Order: Columba’s Food Truck

Columba’s Food Truck has a pretty clever name, right? Say it out loud, and it’s a ringer for “Columbus Food Truck.” This auditory issue caused a little confusion at first, because there are lots of Columbus food trucks in the local dining scene. That said, we’re good now: belongs-to-Columba, got it. In addition to a host of […]

Restaurant Review: Service Bar

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Service Bar

Middle West Spirits’ Service Bar is a heavy-hitter on the local dining scene. Frequently spotted at the top of dining lists, it secured the number-one spot on the most recent Columbus Underground’s reader favorite list. There’s a reason for its success. The kitchen works an angle that infuses popular favorite foods with extra and vaguely […]

Ohio’s Own: Koki’s Tortillas

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Ohio’s Own: Koki’s Tortillas

Koki’s Tortillas are something of a niche find. They’re not just an Ohio business, they’re from right here in Columbus, made out on Sullivant Avenue. Although produced nearby, the tortillas went unnoticed until a friend recommended them. This friend is a tortilla snob, and the term is meant affectionately. For our purposes, it refers to […]

The Short North’s upward spiral has reached the iconic Michael’s Goody Boy. The establishment has long hosted a landmark-quality sign, replete with a giant, luminous, yellow arrow. If not visible from miles away, it’s certainly visible from a decent-sized block. The signage has long held promise of some sort of adventure. In recent years, however, the […]

Awadh India Restaurant sits at a location that should be great for restaurant ventures. It can be found in a bustling strip mall, nestled right next door to a movie theater: the perfect place to grab a pre-show bite. In spite of the sweet spot, restaurants never seem to last more than a couple of […]

Ohio’s Own: Reinecker’s Bakery

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Ohio’s Own: Reinecker’s Bakery

Babka is a type of treat that takes on a lot of forms and interpretations. You can score a Seinfeld-famous chocolate babka at mainstream joints like Trader Joe’s, and walk away with a loaf of bread that hosts infinite ribbons of chocolate filling within its folds. That’s all nice, but Reinecker’s makes a different sort […]

Treat to Try: Dragon Donuts

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Treat to Try: Dragon Donuts

It took a minute to get out to Dragon Donuts. Perhaps that’s understandable. Located in Grove City, the shop requires a short haul through the scenic 71-S road construction. But then again, it’s spring in Columbus, so congested road construction is inescapable. But in this case, it’s worth it. As the name indicates, donuts are involved. […]
