We get cultural whiplash on East Lake Street as we bounce from Japan (Midori’s Floating World) to East Africa (African Paradise) to Mexico (Nuevo Rodeo) and beyond.
From the grand insanity of the hundreds-plus item Teppanyaki Grill to the so-quiet-we-weren’t-sure-if-it-was-open atmosphere of Abi’s Cafe, East Lake Street contains many different looks.
The East Lake Checklist meanders toward the river and covers Dur Dur Bakery, O-City, Halwo Kismayo, Pasteleria Gama, and Ingebretsen’s.
The East Lake Checklist hits Mercado Central and uncovers a treasure trove of incredible foods including a killer bolillo asada sandwich and a corn-based drink called an atole.
The East Lake Checklist treks onward to the newly opened Miramar, Kilimanjaro, La Poblanita, and more including our new favorite panaderia (bakery).
