“A Tampa landmark...you cannot come to Tampa and not eat at the Columbia Restaurant on 7th in Ybor City. I also like the Columbia Cafe on the Tampa Riverwalk. It's open-air and the Lechon Asado sandwich is muy sabroso. ”

Buddhist Temple
“Thai Market every Sunday between 8:30 am and 1:00 pm at the Temple. A real hidden gem of a place :) Plan to arrive before 12:30 as the food is limited and goes quickly The market includes a wide variety of Thai food (seasoned to your taste)”
