Aside from being the capital of the state of Ohio, the city of Columbus is known to be home to one of the best cuisines in Midwestern United States. Throughout the years, Columbus has been consistently creating and elevating the ultimate gastronomic experience the city has to offer for locals and foreign guests.

Columbus City alone has a record of 6,000 active business licenses for restaurants and food carts. It is also considered to be a place where both ethnic cuisine and modern fine-dining are both celebrated. 

Some of the unique tastes of Columbus cuisine that you can find are the artisan ice creams that are crafted with interesting and rich flavors such as Brown Butter Almond Brittle, Dark Chocolate and the crowd-favorite, Salty Caramel. There is also the unique Rye Croissant that is filled with home-made jams and sprinkled with caraway seeds, Experience Columbus says.

If you are having a hard time choosing what the best choice to eat is, the North Market is the perfect place for you. This public market is already a legend in Columbus when it comes to serving good food as it was established in the year 1876. Here, you can encounter over 30 stalls that sell an array of the freshest locally and organically produces veggies, meats, seafood, poultry, cheeses, pastries and other items. There are also stalls that offer freshly-made delicacies and ethnic specialties.

According to Columbus Food Adventures, Columbus is actually a collection of diverse culinary delights that deserve to be discovered not only by the tourists, but by the locals as well. In Columbus, you can find several food tours that will bring you to the most authentic and heart-warming Columbus food stops.

Whether you are on a tight budget, or in the mood for spending more than just a little, Columbus has a perfect store just for you. Check out these spots and do some research yourself--there are so many delectable treats waiting for you here.
