It’s been said before that Columbia is the melting pot of mid-Missouri, and we couldn’t think of a truer statement. For this special travel issue of COMO Living, we wanted to give you a taste of what types of authentic international cuisine you can find right here in Columbia. Our first stop was to 11 Eleven, conveniently located inside The Broadway hotel. This comfortable yet sophisticated restaurant offers an extensive menu, which is sure to please all those you dine with. Our next stop took us to Café Poland. You know that cute little place on Locust across the street from Missouri Theatre? If you’re like us, you’ve driven past it a few times and wondered, “Hmm, I wonder what’s in there?” Well, we’ll be the first to tell you that next time, you need to stop and go inside. Iwana, the wonderful woman who greets you with a smile, will be sure to cook you something delicious. Our last stop was at Jina Yoo’s Asian Bistro, and of course, Jina herself plated some delicious food that wasn’t just good for the taste buds but the camera lens as well. Her food is beautifully crafted and wonderful for lunch or dinner.
