We all have those nights where you just can’t seem to decide what type of food you’re in the mood for. Both everything and nothing sounds good. Well, we found a simple solution for the next time this happens to you. All you have to do is head to this eclectic restaurant. This place is like a bizarre mish-mash of several different types of restaurant and it’s pretty amazing. In the mood for American? Latin? Asian? This restaurant has it all! It doesn’t matter what you’re in the mood for, just be sure to come hungry.
There are some days where it seems like each member of the family has a different preference regarding what they'd like to eat. When this happens, head on over to Sassafras Eclectic Food Joint. They have a little bit of everything, and they do it all perfectly.
Located in Carson City, Sassafras Eclectic Food Joint takes its name to heart. Both the quirky atmosphere and the extensive menu are bound to leave an impression on you.
The unique eatery initially opened in 2011 and it quickly established a loyal customer base in the capital city. After all, Sassafras has something for everyone! Specifically, the restaurant is described as a blend of "American Southern, Pacific Rim, Asian, and Latin". But you never really know what type of food you'll come across here.
On the menu, you'll find a few dishes that anybody can love including sandwiches and burgers. With selections like "Pull My Pork" (slow roasted pork on a sweet French roll), "Ahi BLT" (seared rare ahi tuna, crispy bacon, baby greens, and tomato), and the "Fried Cheese Cheeseburger" (a burger with crispy, gooey fried cheese), you'll definitely find something that catches your eye.
However, Sassafras is known as a "Chalkboard-style" restaurant, which means the menu is ever-changing. It just depends on what they happen to be cooking up when you come in. You might come in on a day they are serving up a special, like the Okonomiyaki (a Japanese savory pancake with a delicious combination of toppings), and be tempted to try something new.
Alternatively, you can go with a tried and true specialty like the Black and Blue Shrimp Fondue. This beloved dish is comprised of blackened shrimp atop gooey blue cheese fondue and served with crusty bread. Yum!
If all else fails, you can always go with pizza. Pizza never disappoints. They have several different kinds, including "El Guapo" (chorizo, chicken, tomato, serrano, and queso), "The Luau" (Kahlua pork, grilled pineapple, chicken, red onion, tomato, and Hawaiian BBQ), and "Muffuletta" (marinara, spicy capicola ham, salami, mortadella, olive salada, and provolone.)
It doesn't matter what type of cuisine you prefer, Sassafras is for anyone and everyone. Be sure to visit this local favorite the next time you visit Carson City. You'll find it at 1500 Old Hot Springs Rd, Carson City, NV 89706.
