Gwennie's has been a very famous restaurant in Anchorage since 1971. The very rustic atmosphere is full of typical things from Alaska, including an old car in the doorway. The walls have pictures and memories of Alaska and one can spend hours looking around at everything. The food isn't anything too special, just typical American cuisine, but the atmosphere alone is worth going.
This place is very original it is a Chocolate factory with the largest chocolate waterfall in the world. Not only do they make chocolate, but they also make preserves and jams made from fruits typical of Alaska, raspberry, blueberry and currant. They offer samples of chocolates and there are large windows to see exactly how they make the chocolates and jams. It is also a shop with many Alaskan souvenirs and food such as salmon, honey and buffalo meat and reindeer. The decor is very rustic and typical of Alaska. This place is worth seeing, if only to try the delicious chocolate. It is also interesting to be ale to see the production methods.
This bakery just opened recently and has enjoyed a lot of success. Situated on the main street of the center of the city, 4th Avenue, it offer a variety of cakes, pies, beverages and breads. Everything is great and the presentation is veryoriginal. The place has four or five tables and on the walls you will find paintings and pictures that are also sold. I love going to this place to have a drink and relax a bit. It is an oasis in the city center.
If you want the best Korean food, you have to follow the local Anchorage Korean community, and they flock to the VIP restaurant. There's a variety of snacks on offer, and each table is brightly decorated. The restaurant is small, and sometimes the service can be slow, but it's worth it to try this delicious food.
