Boulder Basics

The city of Boulder, Colorado, is a pleasant place to spend the day. It’s very easy to get around the downtown on foot and there’s much to see. Also, the city has many excellent choices for food. In fact, it has become a foodie destination. There are so many interesting places that we wanted to try. Unfortunately, we were limited on time so we had to narrow down our choices carefully.


Boulder Dushanbe Teahouse

Our winner was the Boulder Dushanbe Teahouse. This unique building was built as a gift from Boulder’s sister city of Dushanbe, Tajikistan. It was constructed in Dushanbe, disassembled, and reconstructed in Boulder by workers from Tajikistan. More amazingly, it was done by hand and without any power tools. The restaurant itself has an eclectic menu and an endless list of teas to choose from.

Falafel King

A quick lunch was had at Falafel King across from the courthouse. It has excellent Middle Eastern cuisine and dips. Everything was very fresh and tasty, and it filled me up.


Rodeway Inn

For accommodation, the Rodeway Inn and Suites Boulder Broker was a great place to stay. It had good rates, good wifi, friendly service, a clean pool, and a big variety for breakfast. We paid US$96 for a double room (as of September 2015).
