When I travel, I love exploring the local cuisine. I spotted that Dunya served many Iraqi style dishes and people were raving about their food on places like Yelp. Just a short ride from downtown Waterbury, CT took me halfway around the world.
It's a hybrid supermarket/restaurant with an amazing menu. I had a yearning for falafel, which is a savory chick pea patty which was served over salad. Topped off with a Turkish coffee and a pistachio baklava brought back memories of my past travels to the Middle East.
For the hour or so I spent there I felt I was swept away and I look forward to returning to this foodie paradise.
What's your favorite way to think about past and future travel?.
