Anchorage’s sizzling culinary scene serves up a hearty helping of Alaska grown ingredients – don’t miss the chance to savor fresh Alaska seafood, wild game, crisp produce from local farms, or the growing variety of handcrafted brews. Anchorage is amongst the top cities nationally for coffee per capita, making it a great place to sip. Local roasters have the perfect blend, whether your ideal drink is a mug of black coffee or a double-syrup, half-caff iced macchiato.

Home to some of the most culturally diverse neighborhoods in the United States, Anchorage is packed with mouthwatering cuisine from around the world. Filipino, German, Thai, Indian, Hawaiian, Mexican, and more – no matter what flavors you crave, chances are good you can find them in Anchorage. And whether you’re looking for a food truck or a fine dining establishment, Anchorage has no shortage of options.

5 TASTES OF ANCHORAGE

SEAFOOD – Alaska has more coastline than any other state in the union, and the waters near Anchorage teem with savory salmon, flaky, fresh halibut, buttery crab, and juicy shrimp. Enjoy seafood chilled, grilled, in chowders, tacos, crisp salads, and more. There’s always something in season.

WILD BERRIES – Blueberry patches drape the hillsides, cranberries carpet mountain passes, and raspberries line sidewalks and alleys around Anchorage. Taste them in handmade ice creams and gelatos, sweet jams and jellies, fresh tarts, and a variety of other treats.

SOURDOUGH – While other yeasts were difficult to ship and store in Alaska’s early days, sturdy sourdough passed the test, making it a statewide staple for years to come. These days, you can find it flavoring crusty loaves of bread and fluffy stacks of pancakes in restaurants and diners around Anchorage.

REINDEER SAUSAGE – In the summer, the spicy scents of succulent reindeer sausage fill the air over downtown Anchorage. Try one smothered in caramelized onions, or studded with sauteed pineapple. In the winter, warm up with a hearty bowl of reindeer stew.

BIRCH – The slender birch trees feathering Southcentral Alaska produce more than just picture-perfect foliage: Trees are also tapped each spring to produce a supply of birch syrup, a sweet addition to everything from French toast to candies, marinades, and glazes. Only a few thousand gallons of the syrup are produced annually worldwide; a large portion of it flows from Alaska.

Brewery: Micro-cidery

Double Shovel Cider Co. is Alaska’s first micro-cidery. It adds something new to Anchorage’s brew scene, although pressing fruit to make refreshing drinks is as American as apple…cider! Hand-picked Alaska and Washington apples, berries, and syrups combine for ingenious ciders.

Cranberry, rose hips, and even jalapeños are just a few surprise ingredients. Opt for a flight and sample a few.

Fletcher's

Cuisine: American and Pub-style

The names of explorers feature prominently in Anchorage. Captain James Cook’s name graces the body of water flanking the coast of the city and one of the city’s finest hotels. Even Cook’s cohorts gained a level of fame; Fletcher Christian may be best known for the mutiny on the Bounty, but in Anchorage his name is now synonymous with great food in a relaxed atmosphere. Fletcher’s restaurant offers smart appetizers, gourmet pizzas, and hearty dishes that would quell any uprising.

Unwind in the welcoming warmth of an English-style pub. A maritime influence extends to favorite dishes like the seasonal fresh fish piccata and the grilled prawn risotto. However, you’d be missing out if you skipped over the pizzas and sandwiches on the menu. Factor in wine by the glass, fresh microbrews, and cognac, and even famous adventurers will delay their next voyage for another taste.

Fresh pasta or fried chicken sandwich? Grilled cheese or filet mignon? Equal parts comfort food and Continental fare, it all goes together well at South. Sophisticated and always exceptional, the restaurant created an instant classic by pursuing “casual highbrow dining”.

Make a selection between Sopa de Mar featuring Alaska seafood, creamy bacon studded Boomtown Pasta, and the complex composition of a Roasted Beet Salad. Look to the tapas menu for Chorizo + Clams, Cauliflower Tacos, and Fried Truffled Polenta. Inspired cocktails and champagne by the glass make South a refreshing departure from the everyday. Gin drinks – poured tableside – delightfully layer juniper, lemon, berry, and other flavors.

South's coffeehouse opens early for caffeine and sweet baked goods. Or, stay for a brunch menu loaded with favorites.

Spenard Roadhouse

Cuisine: Alaska and American Comfort

Casual and eclectic, Spenard Roadhouse serves comfort food with a contemporary twist. Find crisp veggies from the Matanuska Valley and fresh Alaska seafood featured in wonderful entrees. Prosciutto Fig Pizza, Bacon of the Month, and Blackened Brussels Sprouts are just a few of the favorites at midtown’s hippest haunt. Get your fingers sticky with an old fashioned S'more for dessert.

How about a highball? The Roadhouse specializes in craft cocktails, small batch bourbons, and house-infused vodkas.

Halibut Alaskana

Tent City Taphouse

Cuisine: Gastropub and American

dine in & takeout • Alaska microbrews • family-owned

Local roots inspire every choice at Tent City Taphouse. The gastropub’s name is a nod to Anchorage’s early days; historical photos line the walls, the menu is homegrown –Tent City Taphouse is truly a taste of Anchorage.

The menu leans into Alaska’s reputation for amazing seafood by featuring halibut, Arctic cioppino, king crab, and more. But there’s room to test something different with pork belly bites with sweet wasabi coleslaw, yum-yum sauce, sushi sauce, and furikake. Their award-winning chowder blends salmon, halibut, and clams with Alaska herbed cream and dry sherry. The Tent City Burger is a staff favorite, and there are also six smash-style burgers that come paired with garlic cilantro or truffle Parmesan fries. Their 24 beer taps often host Alaska finds rarely found on draft anywhere else in town, and Tent City’s iconic mimosa flight always sparkles.

Tequila 61° serves up a modern take on time-tested dishes from south of the border, served north of expectations. Alaska seafood or prime cuts of meat are all uniquely spiced to evoke the true taste of Mexico, served in a charmingly rustic and handcrafted atmosphere.

This is Mexican food the way it should be: subtly sweet and spicy sauces; salty cotija cheese; pepper-fueled heat.Try the grilled Alaska king crab – you’ve never had king crab quite like this! Or savor the fajita molcajete, a twist on an age-old cooking method and served in a volcanic stone bowl. There’s plenty of fresh guacamole to share, and artful desserts to top it all off.

A full-service bar features craft cocktails and margaritas flavored with hibiscus, basil, ginger, and fresh-squeezed lime juice. Or select from featured wines, local craft beers, small batch spirits, and fine sipping tequilas and mezcal.

Take your taste buds to the peak of Himalayan dining with a visit to Yak and Yeti. This family-owned business elevates favorite foods from North India, Tibet, and Nepal from a spot in the heart of the Spenard neighborhood.

Mix and match the perfect rice bowl, selecting options including Tibetan stir fry pork, yams in a tangy cream sauce, curried yellow lentils, or black lentils with Jimbu, a herb grown amid the tallest peaks on the planet. The green daal soup’s deep color and complex flavor make the lentil and spinach dish a popular pick. With sandwiches like pork vindaloo on house-made turmeric baguettes or a gyro packed with tandoori lamb, onion, cucumber, and yogurt sauce, you might ponder how it’s possible to pick up that much flavor. Housemade chai, fruit Lhassis and Delhi iced coffee mean even the drink options span the globe.

TAKE HOME THE TASTE

The meal may end, but there’s more to look forward to than an after-dinner mint. The flavors of Anchorage travel well. Here are five of the best ways to savor bites of Alaska, even at home.

FLYING FISH – Ever seen a salmon soar? Local markets and processors can ship Alaska seafood right to your door. Pack up your catch, or select from the catch of the day.

TREE TREATS – Maple may get the glory elsewhere, but Alaskans tap birch trees for syrup. This caramel-flavored concoction goes on more than pancakes.

MEAT ME IN ANCHORAGE – Hot dog carts are an Anchorage staple, and reindeer sausage packed to go is an easy item to take home. You’ll surprise a few friends with this flavor straight from Alaska.

LOCAL BUZZ – Coffee culture is alive and well, and local roasters offer up beans ready to help you impart the coffee-shop vibe to your kitchen counter. Though impossible to prove, some also claim the drive-up coffee hut as an Alaska innovation.

GROWLERS AND CANS – Canned beer packs light and travels well, so locals love to take it along on outdoor adventures. Those same characteristics make canned Anchorage brews easy to pack up no matter your destination. There’s even a spot inside security at the Anchorage airport that fills growlers to go.
