Endicott is a melting pot of many different cultures, dating back to the Endicott-Johnson days. This blending of cultures has left the area with a rich heritage and an amazing food scene. Growing up and living in Endicott, we know what places are worth checking out. Below is a list of 5 places that we find ourselves at most frequently. Some are well known while others are slightly off the beaten path. Either way they’re all worth checking out ASAP.
1. Podlasie-This place doesn’t get anymore authentic when it comes to Polish food. We try to come here as much as possible to sample their homemade pirogies, flavorful kielbasa and and handful of other delicious Polish delicacies. We usually opt for the combination #1 which is a platter of pierogi, kielbasa and stuffed cabbage but if you’re looking for something really special, the Hungarian Style pancake is beyond amazing.
2. 1st Thai Basil-Authentic Thai food can be found right in Downtown Endicott at 1st Thai Basil. Their menu is very expansive and you can’t really go wrong with anything you get here. We’re big fans of their green and red curry, pad thai, thai fried rice (#3 spice; we like things on the spicier side) and drunken noodles. And no meal would be complete without an order of their Thai crispy rolls 🙂
3. Coco Mojo-The newcomer to the Endicott restaurant scene, Coco Mojo is dishing out authentic Caribbean food. We’ve been here several times and have had great experiences each and every time. If you’re looking to try something a little different make sure to try the stewed goat and the fried plantains.
4. Joey’s-Great Italian food sums up Joey’s. From the pizza to the sandwiches, Joey’s always puts out an authentic and delicious Italian meal. Our favorite menu items would have to be Pizza Bianco, the Calabrese sandwich, and the Greens-N-Beans. And during the summer we cap off every meal with one of their famous Italian ices/custards.
5. Baked Euphoria-Technically not a restaurant but there ar so many great things to say about Baked Euphoria. Bonnie and her team consistently serve up some of the best cakes, pastries, cookies and seasonal treats we’ve ever had. Our favorites are the kolachky, rainbow cake and stuffed cupcakes. PS: if you didn’t know Baked Euphoria was featured on TLC’s Bakery Boss, so they’re kind of a big deal.
And we would be remiss if we didn’t mention The North Brewery. How many towns can say that they have their own craft brewery? Well, Endicott can! Located right on Washington Ave, The North Brewery is brewing up some delicious and innovative craft beer. Our personal favorites are: American Dream and The Slice (seasonal pumpkin beer).
