One of the reasons why living in Fort Worth is such a great place it has a large choice of restaurants.

Due to only being in Texas for the last four years I find it interesting to try the different foods and compare them to my homeland of England.  Most people in the United Kingdom enjoy Chinese and Indian takeaways as a weekend treat and you can find one of these in every town or city.

But in Fort Worth the roads are slightly more complicated, meaning most people have to search for one of these restaurants. But there is still plenty of options as the list below indicates.

From time to time, I like to check out the various options here and compare them to back home with some mixed results. There was a time I went to a Chinese restaurant in western Texas and chose to order the same foods I would back at home: in this case beef chow mein.

But when the waiter brought the food out, I had to ask if he had brought me the correct food because it was a bag of chips with a soup and chicken on it.  It was something I never ordered because over here because I expected to get beef with noodles and vegetables.

After looking at the different Tex-Mex options and barbecue restaurants in previous issues, now is the time to compare Asian style food and try some of these top quality area restaurants at affordable student prices.

After doing some research and speaking to expert foodies and chef Kelly Burton, who graduated from Texas Wesleyan last semester, we came up with this list of unique must visit places to eat not too far away from campus in Fort Worth.
