5 Restaurants In Anchorage Even Picky Eaters Will Enjoy

I don’t know exactly when it happened, if there was a moment or a slow progression, but I somehow became known in my group of friends as the picky eater. I am the one who has to find something on the menu, then ask for this substitution, and for that to be taken off, and in the end, the dish doesn’t even resemble its original form. Let me tell you, when you’re that kind of an eater, you quickly figure out which restaurants cater to your needs and which ones you’ll be ordering a sad salad at. So, whether your paleo, vegetarian, vegan, or just a health nut like me, listed below are the best restaurants in Anchorage for you to fill your belly.

1. Middle Way Cafe

Located in a strip mall next to REI, this cafe is much more than meets the eye. This place offers amazing coffee, classic sandwiches, delicious burgers, all the best breakfast options, juices and smoothies, not to mention their array of fresh baked goods. But the best part about this cafe is that they have options. There are always plenty of vegetarian items, and vegan dishes that will make you ask if they messed up your order and put real cheese on it. If you are looking for breakfast or lunch, this place will not disappoint.

2. 49th State Brewing Co.

If you are the only picky eater in your group, and everyone is looking for a classic American restaurant, suggest 49th State Brewing Co. This relatively new brewery offers more than crafted beers and bar food. Their menu has a fair number of vegetarian and vegan options. Some include fried cauliflower, a hummus platter, garden burgers, and vegan cheese for pizza! And the best part about this spot is its location, you can enjoy your food of choice while looking out over the inlet, as the brewery sits on the waterline edge of Anchorage.

3. Fat Ptarmigan

This popular pizza place is located in the heart of Anchorage. While it doesn’t have a ton of menu choices for picky eaters, they make the list for their ‘build your own’ pizza section. They offer gluten-free crusts, cheese-free bases, and loads of toppings, so you can make a pizza that will satisfy your cravings and not be stuck with a salad.

4. Organic Oasis Restaurant & Juice Bar

If you are looking for options and want a guarantee you won’t end up getting frustrated and settling on your meal, check out Organic Oasis. With items like their Organic Hummus & Pita plate, Tofu Quesadilla, Shroom Burger, and Moroccan Hummus wrap, this place caters to the gluten intolerant, vegetarian, vegan and health nut alike. There are some great restaurants in Anchorage even for the pickiest of eaters.

5. Thai Kitchen Express Market

Thai is always a safe bet for a vegetarian. And I’m OK with that because curry is a food gift from heaven. Thai Kitchen Express Market goes above and beyond for the picky eater. They don’t just substitute tofu in their classic dishes, they offer items like Pineapple Curry Tofu, Teriyaki Tofu, Spicy Basil Noodle Tofu, and an entire menu section dedicated to vegetarian options. This place is worth a visit for any curry lover. You should definitely check out these restaurants in Anchorage.
