IDAHO FALLS HAS NO SHORTAGE OF GREAT PLACES TO EAT, and since summer’s not out yet, we’re all still in summer getaway mode. That means we hit our favorite local eateries as often as we can to keep the good vibes going when tanning on a tropical beach isn’t an option. One bite of these dishes is a vacation in itself. Here are the can’t-live-withouts for each of our   staff members.

Birria Tacos with Consomé from Garcia Street Taco & Pelona’s FruitOasis

Juicy, crunchy, dripping with flavor. So. Good.

Spiced Lentil Soup with Salad and Focaccia from A Street Soup Market

A perfect balanced trio. The tastiest light lunch for under $10!
-Chris Sheetz, General Manager

Tonkatsu from Blue Hashi

Juicy pork with a crispy coating over steaming veggies and rice—all drizzled with sweet umami sauce. Need we say more?

An agreeable and exotic marriage of spicy, creamy, and crisp with just the right kick. All the textures and flavors a curry should have.
