My Exploration into Foreign Cuisine

Most of my life I grew up in a small town. There never was a plethora of restaurants to choose from. But now that I live in a big city there are tons and it almost seems overwhelming. Some are different variations from what I’m used to and others are from countries other than Mexico and China. It was surprising to see all the different kinds of restaurants. There are three criteria that will be used to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of my restaurant options: the restaurant must be able to feed my family all for under $30.00, the food served needs to be foreign other than Mexican and Chinese, and the restaurant must have a clean and inviting ambiance. The first criterion used to evaluate our options is that the restaurant must be able to feed my family of four for under $30.00. Since I’m not familiar with the area I went to to find restaurants close to me. I came up with three possible places located down the street. After a perusal on the restaurants websites their online menus gave us an insight into the prices of the food. The most inexpensive restaurant is the Taj Mahal Indian Cuisine. Most meals are under $10.00 and kids meals are under $5.00. This restaurant would easily fit in our $30.00 budget. The Galis Gyro and Grill, the boroughs popular Greek cuisine, is slightly more expensive, but if you are just drinking water it could still work. Bobby’s, on the corner, is very expensive traditional food. If we really wanted to eat here we could all just share an appetizer and that would be it. Secondly, the restaurant needs to serve foreign cuisine other than Mexican and Chinese. The Taj Mahal is known for its great tasting Indian food that has won local awards consecutively. The Galis Gyro and Grill serves great tasting Greek food and also offers take out options and party trays. Bobby’s serves a more traditional selection but has Mexican food available as well as a sushi bar. All three restaurants serve foreign cuisine, but Bobby’s doesn’t fit the criteria
