This is my first post so please bear with me. I have used Chowhound for years but never actually joined until now.
I just moved to Nashville. Before I moved I scoured the site looking for recs but this can be a very daunting task. I think I have all of the major players down, but I love ethnic food and can't easily find recs for ethnic food. I also love to find those "off the beaten path, hole-in-the-wall" kinds of places.
I would love to get people's opinions together for as many recs as I can get since I plan to be here for a while. I like all types of ethnic food so I'll take recs on anything, bring it on...Mexican, Vietnamese, Thai, Indian, anything from the Middle East to Africa to Peru and back. I am just looking to test out the city.
Likewise, I would love to find some places that are good to grab food that might not be a rec for someone just here for the weekend or a vaca, you know the local dive that tourists would never see. I thank everyone in advance for suggestions, sorry so long winded.
