Pho So 1

This is the place to go for authentic, inexpensive and delicious Vietnamese food. The menu features several kinds of Pho (an amazing noodle soup dish served with fresh herbs, lime and bean sprouts on the side) and many other Vietnamese dishes. They also have many different flavors of bubble tea. $

My Noodle & Bar

This family-owned restaurant has a variety of delicious noodle, rice, and curry dishes. Just a short walk away from campus, you can enjoy their patio seating surrounded by their ever-growing herb garden. $$

Peter Chang China Cafe

Peter Chang’s Szechuan style cuisine has a personal twist and has been obsessing those lucky enough to try it since his humble beginnings in Hubei Province. Since Chang moved to the United States, he has been a chef at many restaurants and even the Chinese Embassy in D.C. You won’t regret dining at this authentic Chinese restaurant. $$

Stella’s

A Richmond mainstay, Stella’s is the place to go for all things Greek. You must try the tiropita and the spanakopita, but the moussaka and souvlaki are hard to beat. Really, you won’t be disappointed no matter what you try. $$

Mekong

If the phrase “extensive selection of craft beer” is music to your ears, then you have got to check out the famous Mekong. This Vietnamese restaurant’s slogan is “Mekong is for beer lovers.” If beer isn’t really your thing, no worries. The food here is amazing too! $$

Stuzzi

Stuzzi has amazing authentic dishes, cocktails and nightly specials. You can expect good food because the executive chef worked with Gordon Ramsey on Hell’s Kitchen, Season 10. They have an adorable patio and warm atmosphere to complete the experience.  $$

Kuba Kuba

Probably the best Cuban food in town, this is a Richmond gem. Definitely come hungry, because they serve large portions in a bodega-like atmosphere.  $$

Momotaro

Delicious and located in Carytown, Momotaro has a variety of rolls for the sushi fan. Try the Candy Cane Roll or the Bomb Roll. $$
