The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Eat and Drink Your Way Through Columbus


4. Insider’s Tip

Solay Bistro serves authentic Somali food in a strip-mall storefront.  

Some of the city’s most interesting eats can’t be found in the center of town, so make the twenty-minute drive to the Columbus Square Shopping Center, dubbed the “United Nations of Columbus” for its ethnic eateries. Of note are Solay Bistro, for authentic Somali fare, including goat stew and spongy injera bread, and Mi Li Café (5858 Emporium Sq.; 614-899-9202) a tidy, if somewhat spartan, Vietnamese restaurant with excellent banh mi—plus pho, beef stew, pork-stuffed crepes, and bubble teas.
