Further your culinary education at Reading's restaurants
Trying food from around the world is an important part of soaking up a country's culture and traditions. Fortunately for us, there are dozens of international restaurants in Reading that offer a combination of well-known classic dishes and culinary creations you may not be so familiar with. Explore the traditions of Sardinia at Pepe Sale in Broad Street Mall, a restaurant that prides itself on age-old family recipes from the wonderful Italian island. Or maybe you're in the mood to expand your knowledge of Asian cuisine, but can't decide between Chinese, Malaysian and Japanese. Well, why not tuck into a selection of regional delicacies from all three countries at Cosmo, which features cooking stations — where expert chefs demonstrate how these foods are prepared back home? For something closer to home, a selection of classic and contemporary French dishes await at L'Ortolan on Church Lane, ideal for those trying out the cuisine for the first time, with authentic specialities such as glazed duck breast, stone bass, and goose liver parfait.
