Like many of you, I am in deep love with food. I have made it my life’s mission to go and find the best of Fresno’s restaurants. Before any eating adventure, I search diligently among Yelp reviews and internet recommendations to locate all of the most delectable places to feast. I immerse myself in many different types of food from all cultures and have selected some especially great places you should try based on fresh ingredients, expert preparation, and variety of dishes.

La Boulangerie, located in the Fig Garden Village Shopping Center has, no doubt, the best quality and selection of French pastries. This cafe is proud to use a flavorful array of fresh ingredients in all of their products.

Available are a variety of distinctively French tarts, macaroons, croissants, breads and cakes. Other small treats such danishes may also be purchased. French pastries are usually light and use accents of fruit, chocolates or creams. The setting of this establishment is elegant and reflects European culture in terms of decor and outdoor seating.  Not to mention, you won’t be able to resist walking in after you’ve caught the scent of freshly baked bread.

For amazing Italian pizza, Mike’s Pizzeria is a top choice. Mike’s has been in business for over 50 years and is proud to promote their home style traditional recipes which have been present for three generations. Here you can get an authentic Italian pizza with your choice of toppings in small to large sizes.

The flavors present in this pizza are incomparable to those you may find at any chain pizzeria as these are crafted with a great quality in mind. The sauce used is made from a family recipe batched fresh weekly and the dough is made from scratch every morning. All of the vegetables used in their toppings are fresh and the baking process happens within a stone oven which they watch very carefully while the pizza is being made.

Sam’s Italian Deli and Market place is where you will be wanting to get your Italian sandwiches while in Fresno. This market is known for their authentic, imported Italian cold cuts and cheese.

The sandwiches here are flavorful and come in great variety while customers are always given the option of cold or hot. Sandwiches can also be ordered for many different occasions as they come in sizes from five inches to a massive six foot sub. You can definitely taste the difference between these Italian sandwiches from your average chain location sub. Italian sandwiches traditionally hold a lot of meat product with light amounts of vegetables on a quality roll, you may find all of these great qualities within the sandwiches at Sam’s Deli.

If you’re in for trying some delicious Indian food, Curry House is your destination. At Curry House, located in River Park, you can explore vast amounts of flavors and spices during their afternoon buffet, or order off the menu at dinner.

The restaurant originated in Merced  and did so well they opened up an additional location in Fresno. Fresh ingredients prepared daily and modern interpretations on traditional Indian dishes are what Curry House is known for, ensuring you can still enjoy the classic Indian flavors while exploring unique dishes. Compared to the other many Indian restaurants in Fresno, Curry House has a large selection while offering continuous quality and service.

Curry House also offers dine-in or take out. Either way, you are still met with the herbal and spicy combination that characterizes the most amazing Indian food.

Tacos & Mariscos Tijuana is a solid place for getting some tasty Mexican tacos. At this restaurant, you are given plentiful options and quality ingredients that do Mexican food justice. This business understands how a simple dish like a taco can go wrong or right. A variety of toppings and skilled preparation is what we all want, and Tacos & Mariscos gives you both. The carefully cooked and seasoned meat makes these tacos especially delicious. You are also not given food that is too greasy, which is quite common among Mexican establishments in Fresno. The tacos here will greet you with the colorful presentation and zesty flavors that are classic aspects of the best Mexican cuisine.
