Asian: Kon Tiki, Nanking
Cajun: The Blind Tiger, Bear's Restaurant and Sports Bar or Herbie K's
Coffee: Columbia Cafe or Courtyard Coffee
Indian: India's Restaurant or Utsave Contemporary Indian Cuisine
Mexican: Nicky's, Trejo's or Superior

Phat Girl recommends you call ahead and find out if your selected restaurant has any special holiday hours. For phone numbers and addresses go to the Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau website.
