Local Restaurants Deliver Big (and Unique) Flavor

I recently had the opportunity to visit several local restaurants and bakeries this week with a representative from the Indiana Foodways Alliance.  We are all guilty of dining at our “usual” spots, which are different for everyone.  The next time you eat out in Kokomo, think local.  Many of the places we stopped this week have been in business in Kokomo for decades; some for over 50 years!  It was a great reminder that we need to not only step out of our normal routine and try different places once in awhile, but that supporting our local family-owned (I like to call them mom and pop) restaurants is putting money back into our local community.

I took a few photos while I was out and about this week and received a delicious meal at every single stop!  For a listing of all local restaurants in Kokomo, visit our website www.VisitKokomo.org or pick up a Dining Guide at the Kokomo Visitors Bureau office, located at 325 North Main Street.
