First 2014 Wordless Wednesday Link Up: North Market Lunch Date


By on 12/31/2013 07:43:00 AM

The girls are spending a few days of their holiday break with Grandma and Grandpa--so we decided to venture out for a lunch date to one of my favorite places:  North Market in Columbus, Ohio.  We take the girls there a few times a year--but, usually find ourselves rushing between other downtown activities and rarely take the time to wander through the vendors and explore.  It's a great outing for everyone in the family to sample something new and different with vendors selling a variety of ethnic foods under one busy, customer filled roof--and, of course, there is also pizza and New York Deli style style sandwiches and too many dessert options to name.

Wandering the Market...
Half the fun of North Market is wandering the marketplace.  The sights, sounds and smells make decisions difficult!




We had to have a Bavarian Pretzel from Brezel--we chose an Everything Pretzel--loaded with spices and flavor as we explored.

 And for lunch?
We opted to share a Meat Taster Sampler plate from Flavors of India

Two meat selections (we chose a chicken curry and chicken korma) and four vegetable selections....peas and carrots, an okra dish, cabbage and onions, and vegetable korma over a bed of white rice.  While it wasn't very "photogenic"--it was yummy!

Dessert?
Narrowed the choices to an Omega Cake

or...
Ice cream from Jeni's Splendid Ice Cream

It was a nice afternoon break!  While the Omega cake won this time--Jeni's is always first on the girls' list....and they won't be very happy when they realize that we didn't get a pint of ice cream to go!

  1. It looks like there's lots of great food there. We have a place kind of similar here in Boston called Quincy Market/Faneuil Hall, but it's always so darn crowded that it's almost not worth it lol.

  10. WOW does this look like fun!! My husband and I had to go to the mall last week and also made a "date" of it by stopping for an enjoyable lunch! It was such a nice break from all the busyness of the Christmas season. Thanks for hosting Wordless Wednesday … this is my first time joining you :-)
