Boise has a wonderful culinary scene that includes plenty of cheap eats for those visiting on a budget. When you’re strapped for cash but craving a bite, check out one of these affordable eateries.
Tango’s is a local favorite in Boise and offers up some fantastic Argentinian food at affordable prices. While they have your basic subs and French fries, the empanadas are the real draw. The meat-filled saltena is great, but don’t miss out on the dessert empanadas for a real treat!
If you’re a meat-and-potatoes traveler, you can’t go wrong with Boise Fry Company. They offer eight different varieties of potatoes to choose from, along with an impressive array of vegan and beef burgers. They even offer vegan buns.
A cozy atmosphere and eclectic menu of Basque favorites make Bar Gernika one of the best options for lunch in Boise. Here you’ll find croquettes, grinders, chorizos and kebabs of varying flavors along with fantastic beer selections to satisfy any taste bud.
There is a surprisingly large array of gyro restaurants littered throughout Boise, but Mazzah stands head and toe above the rest. An impressive menu of flavorful Mediterranean options, like Greek hummus and lamb kebabs, draw in crowds and the friendly service makes it a bright place to eat.
ONCE THE FINAL MEETING WRAPS and the last contract is signed and sealed with a handshake, what’s next? Do you catch a flight back home or do you take advantage of the destination? If your next business trip is to Italy, we suggest adding a few more days to explore the country’s most amazing hot spots. Make time for more than a mouthwater- ing Italian meal in these three cities.
I lived in San Francisco during college so coming to visit the city and see all the changes was exciting. The Hotel Zeppelin was built in a once slightly shabby area that has since come alive with new hotels and restaurants for travelers looking for something different. We arrived at noon on a Friday afternoon and were immediately greeted by the hotel staff at the front desk. They were able to accommodate an early check-in, completed in just a few minutes. The lobby is as hip as the hotel name sounds, but it also offered a cozy atmosphere, with a roaring fire and comfy couches and chairs in the lounge area. Unique wall art, statues and lighting remind you of the cool factor.
There are few things as adult-ish as a well-designed living space. When you stop strewing your Ikea coffee table with old magazines and straw wrappers, and start creating a “lewk” that’s more your style, it’s time to invest in a coffee table book. Sometimes pricey, these are not the tomes you curl up with in your cozy chair. They’re often hefty, artistic and fun and, if chosen correctly, a true representation of your own sense of style and interests.
Once business concludes, a world of wonder awaits in many of Italy’s incredible cities.
