I ran a search and majority of the posts from the other Gainesville threads looks dated, so I'd like to get some more recent input. I'm coming from Dallas for a business trip and I will have a car.
Dallas has a restaurant in a Hare Krishna temple that serves outstanding food, so I'm also very interested in checking out Gainesville's Hare Krishna lunch. Excited about possibly trying dishes I haven't seen before. Where can I find more details/info? I hope I can sneak away from my not-so-adventurous coworkers to do this!
Bahn Thai also sounded promising. I glanced at the menu online, but do they also have a Thai language menu? I ask because it sounds like a place that would have one with more authentic dishes. I'm not interested in ordering "safe" entrees like pad thai or panang curry, and I have no problems tolerating spicy foods.
I'm also open to other ethnic options (feel free to suggest anything) as well as good local mom n' pop joints. Looking forward to the recs.
