East Lake Checklist: Midori’s Floating World to El Nuevo Rodeo

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.

East Lake Checklist: La Alborada to Quruxlow

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.

East Lake Checklist: Ingebretsen’s to Pasteleria Gama

The East Lake Checklist meanders toward the river and covers Dur Dur Bakery, O-City, Halwo Kismayo, Pasteleria Gama, and Ingebretsen’s.

East Lake Checklist: Mercado Central

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.

East Lake Checklist: Miramar to San Miguel Bakery

The East Lake Checklist treks onward to the newly opened Miramar, Kilimanjaro, La Poblanita, and more including our new favorite panaderia (bakery).
