Des Moines, the capital of the lovely state of Iowa, is the most populated city in Iowa and is the site of first caucuses during the US presidential primaries.
For such a small city like Ames, the number of Chinese restaurants is actually quite large. Even better, these restaurants are probably some of the most authentic Chinese places I’ve been to.
Flame & Skewer is a small, nice Greek family steakhouse located with the North Grand Mall, about a short ten minute drive from where our apartments are located
Razzoo’s Cajun Cafe was started in the Dallas/Fort Worth area in 1991, and has since expanded all over Texas, including to College Station! I don’t recall it seeing it before leaving for Austin last fall (or maybe it was already there…), so this summer was the first time that my parents and I went together (they’d gone a few times earlier this year).
As many of y’all know, I’m from College Station, Texas, a small college town located between the three big cities of Houston, Austin and Dallas. As many of y’all also know, I like to call out CSTAT for being one of the more boring towns, with nothing to do. BUT, CSTAT actually isn’t that bad, and has quite a decent amount of places with good food, so it’s time for a change.
