Best Food in Cincinnati

Cincinnati is a surprisingly good city for foodies, both from the perspective of groceries and restaurants.

Jungle Jim's
With both stores having more than 200,000 square feet of space, this giant grocery has almost everything. They have over 150,000 products, including live seafood and a wide range of international foods, and a busy schedule of cooking classes, wine tastings, and more. The Eastgate store is about 20 minutes from NKU's campus.
Findlay Market
A collection of a couple dozen indoor merchants selling meats, cheeses, fish, product, and baked goods. On Thursdays and weekends, Findlay is also the site of the largest farmer's market in the Cincinnati area.
Cincinnati CAM Asia Supermarket
If you need Asian foods and can't find them at Jungle Jim's, then CAM is the place to shop.

Riverside Korean
Great, authentic Korean cuisine.
Sichuan Bistro
Authentic Sichuan cuisine and my favorite Chinese restaurant in Cincinnati. Order off the Sichuan menu and avoid the English language general Chinese menu.
Mai Thai
Great Thai noodles, stir fries, and fried rice dishes. Surprisingly good sushi for a Thai restaurant, though I still don't know why sushi is so common at Thai restaurants in Cincinnati.
Awesome sushi and a wide range of authentic Japanese food, including seasonal dishes that aren't on the menu but which your server will tell you about if you ask.
La Mexicana
Authentic taqueria, with great fish, goat, and al pastor tacos.
