Cleveland Ethnic Eats




The 8th edition of this popular dining guide introduces a world of exotic cuisines—right here in our own backyard! These 356 authentic ethnic restaurants and markets (from more than 60 different countries and cultures) are recommended by the experts: Cleveland's ethnic citizens themselves. Laura Taxel found out where they go for an authentic meal; her book shares those delicious discoveries. Detailed listings tell what you'll find when you go, from menu items and specialties to prices, hours, ambiance, attire, and parking. The 8th edition's listings have all been updated, including 58 new listings.


“Dipping into Laura Taxel's book is like putting on a pair of magic glasses. Before, Northeast Ohio is meatloaf and peas. After, it's a colorful melting pot of Jamaican jerk wings and Hungarian stuffed cabbage, of reggae in the back room and curried goat in the kitchen . . . Cleveland Ethnic Eats is more than just a guide to ethnic grocery stores, carryouts and restaurants. It's a glimpse of the people and cultures that season life in Northeast Ohio.” - Akron Beacon Journal

“Without question, this book is an indispensable and exhaustive catalog of Cleveland's bountiful ethnic food culture. Consider it an ethnic restaurant-only version of the Yellow Pages, only more descriptive and detailed . . . Adventurous cooks will make the most of Taxel's listing of ethnic markets, which are often shopped exclusively by immigrants in the know, and are crucial resources for hard-to-find ingredients.” - Free Times

“One food volume that will always sit securely on our shelves is Laura Taxel's "Cleveland Ethnic Eats," a scrumptious and well-thumbed paperback that describes 380 Northeast Ohio restaurants and independently-owned markets serving up authentic Mexican, Asian, Italian, Hungarian, Greek, Anglo-Irish, Filipino, French, even Israeli, Lithuanian and Cajun fare. Do you crave Ethiopian, or feel like Czech? Taxel's book is an invaluable resource to dining around the world without leaving home.” - Morning Journal

“This lively and wide-ranging book is a welcome guide to ethnic restaurants and markets in the Cleveland area. With tips on how to find anything from Asian basil to zucchini kugel, it could be as useful to serious cooks as serious eaters.” - The Plain Dealer

“Taxel does her homework and research. She drives and samples. She asks friends, neighbors and new acquaintances for their favorite ethnic places. She checks out suggestions and interviews owners. I'm keeping my Cleveland Ethnic Eats book handy because I plan to return and seek those wonderful ethnic eateries. The prices are right for my kind of food: real, not gussied up, and so satisfying.” - Sun Newspapers

“A terrific book to have on hand when you don't know where to go for dinner on a Friday night. Keep a copy in your car.” - WCPN FM Radio

“No matter your culinary quest--pierogies in Parma, bouillabaisse in Beachwood, or latkes in Lorain--Taxel's good read will get you there.” - The WIne Buzz

“If you are tired of going to the same places for dinner every Friday and Saturday night, you won't want to miss out on this fun and informative book . . . An unusual dining guide for the lover of ethnic foods and for those who enjoy trying different places.” - Call & Post

“If someone is looking for great Cleveland area Jewish delis that feature hand-cut corned beef, pickled tongue, or beet borsht topped with sour creanm, they should pick up a copy of Laura Taxel's Cleveland Ethnic Eats. The tantalizing guide offers a full plate of authentic ethnic dining.” - Cleveland Jewish News

“A very handy tool for food lovers all over the region . . . From Hungarian to Slovenian, from Cambodian to Ethiopian, the basic information is right there in that ever-growing book . . . A wonderful compendium of food information for Northern Ohio.” - Currents

“Covers all the basics and then some . . . exceptionally easy to use and puts all pertinent information right at your fingertips.” - Medina County Gazette

“Find out where gastronomical treasure-troves are hidden in the strip malls and storefronts of your neighborhood, whether you live in Bratenahl or Broadview Heights. Taxel gives detailed information on 356 establishments in northeast Ohio, so you have no excuse for eating or shopping at the same old joint week after week.” - Northern Ohio Live

“Makes tabletop adventuring easy as pie . . . The book is a great resource, full of fascinating tidbits, like the history of Greek immigration to Cleveland and the essential differences between Southern cooking and soul food.” - Scene Magazine

“Great little book. Cleveland Ethnic Eats has fun, little out-of-the way places you might never stop at unless someone told you about them. If you want to venture out of our dining rut, try something new, and experience food you've never tasted before--this book's for you.” - WMJI FM Radio

“I love this book. How many times do you find yourself sitting around asking Where can we eat tonight? not having any idea where to go. Now, with Taxel's book, you have your answer.” - WQAL FM Radio

“Truly a passport to discovering Clevelands unique ethnic heritage.” - Friends of the Cleveland Public Library

“A well-planned guide for diners seeking authentic culinary cuisine from around the world and for diners who simply want to try something different from their usual fare.” - The Gazette

“Whatever type of exotic food your taste buds might demand on a particular day, chances are that Cleveland Ethnic Eats can steer you to a place to get it.” - West Side Leader
