Taj Mahal Review

Cultural Eats | Taj Mahal

The most authentic ethnic food in Boise hails from Taj Mahal (Indian/Pakistani food). Vegan and vegetarian dishes, as well as fresh and remarkably flavorful and succulent meat dishes such as lamb roghan josh and butter chicken make this menu exciting for both first time diners and Indian cuisine enthusiasts alike.  They’ve got a lunch buffet that allows you to try out some amazing curries with fresh clay oven baked breads or you can make it in for dinner and order one of the many healthful savory gluten free courses.  One chef prepares every single dish from scratch, so you get a meal prepared to your spice and flavor preference.  That does mean that the wait is a little longer than usual, but they’ve got 60+ international beers in the fridge for you to pass the time.

Zen Bento Review

Best Kept Secret | Zen Bento

Does my parent’s house count? No? Well then I’d have to say Zen Bento on 10th and Main in Boise or on old State in Eagle. My choice dish is a salmon bento bowl with brown rice, green onions and their house teriyaki sauce with lots of siracha on the side.

Fine Dining | Bella Aquila

An authentic meal at a romantic Italian restaurant doesn’t take a trip to Milan.  Located in Eagle, Bella Aquila offers an elegant ambiance paired with an exquisite menu.

Landmarks & Attractions | Camille Beckman

Well, I guess I’m a little bias here. I always recommend the Camille Beckman factory in Eagle, simply because I give the tours when our tour guides aren’t here and know how much joy it brings to people who haven’t seen the inner workings of the beauty industry before. Even the men love it because of our architectural and engineering genius behind the building.

Another great spot is the Idaho Botanical Gardens. With movie screenings, performing art events and concerts throughout the summer, the IBG hosts events that are romantic enough for two yet exciting enough for a whole family!

Performing Arts | Boise Chamber Music Series

Be sure to check out the Boise Chamber Music Series. You’ll hear some of the best internationally renowned classical music of today. In the warmer months, the Shakespeare festival is always sure to please and I love that you can bring a picnic with you!

Outdoor Adventure | Asana Climbing Gym

With the weather getting colder, people assume outdoor activities are off the table. Asana climbing gym on Chinden is a great alternative to being outside. They have a full gym and climbing walls for both novice and experienced climbers, the whole family is sure to have a blast while enjoying something new and challenging.

Family Fun | Julia Davis Park

Do you remember the first time you fed a goose? As a child I always enjoyed hanging with the geese in Julia Davis Park. Not only is it free, but the animals are too so there’s no reason to feel bad about the caging of wild creatures! Julia Davis park also has paddle boats and a beautiful rose garden where you can have picnics throughout the spring and summer.

Date Night | Asiago’s

Asiago’s is a great hot spot for dates. The seafood pasta in white wine and butter sauce is amazing, and though it’s hopping, it’s still quiet and romantic enough to connect with that special someone.

Happy Hour | The Matador

Matador’s happy hour is by far my favorite.  For a mere $5, the Texas Nachos are plentiful for two, full of all the fixings and their signature sour cream sauce. The habanero prawns are beyond flavorful and perfect for those who enjoy a bit of heat.
