International Restaurant Week on Havana Street

October 2009
From Korean BBQ Sae Jong Kwan and Nile Ethiopian to Pho 79 and Maandeeq East African Cafe, Havana Street enjoys one of the metro area's most varied restaurant offerings. The second annual International Restaurant Week (through Sunday, October 25) celebrates that diversity with 24 eateries offering special menus and discounts. The event doubles as a food drive for the Food Bank of the Rockies. Diners are asked to bring a nonperishable item (canned tuna, ham, beef stew, chili, baked beans, soup, canned fruit and vegetables, peanut butter, jelly, and pasta are in high demand) to donate. Bonus: Up your trend quotient by checking out one of the Korean spots, such as Korean BBQ Sae Jong Kwan, where $45.95 feeds up to four diners with a bean pancake or fried dumplings, sim-chung-yi combo, beef bulgogi, and Korean whiskey.
