My 3 favorite Alaskan restaurants

Those that know me know that I love food. Love it! I've been known to put down a ridiculous amount of it before, to the point that people might wonder where it all goes.

Though my eating habits have mellowed a bit in recent years, my love for delicious food has not. So I submit to everyone, my absolute three favorite restaurants, one of which has only recently made it so high. Newer(ish) places have a chance!

It was extremely difficult narrowing it just to three, but without further ado, here they are in no particular order.

1) Double Musky

Ah, where to start. Maybe with the peppered steak? Or the jalapeno bread? It's hard to go wrong here if you like Cajun-style food. Sometimes I like to pivot from the steak and get jambalaya which always hits the spot.

If you're not full somehow by the end, they bring out a platter with all the desserts and if you so choose, you can pick one right then and there. It's sneaky but it works because I seem to order dessert most of the time.

I think I had my worst ever overeating stomach ache here. Driving home back to Anchorage after that is miserable, let me tell you. It never stopped me from going back again though!

2) Moose's Tooth

You probably guessed that this would make the list. With a ton of different pizza options to choose from and good craft beer to go with it, it's tough to beat in my eyes. Just be prepared for a long wait some of the time (or a lot of the time.) Still worth it. Or you can always get it takeout style instead!

Pizza-wise for me, it's Avalanche or bust, though there are quite a few other solid options. Ohhh, and diablo sticks please!

3) Turkish Delight

This is the somewhat recently added place for me but it totally earns the spot! My wife went here before me and knows me so well that she instantly knew that I would love it. So we went here for a date night and now there's no looking back.

If you love gyros like me, that's a solid pick here. Or you can go the doner kebab, so like a gyro but with no pita. The meat is tender and juicy, and the rice is flavorful. And the salad, the salad is great since I'm pretty partial to a more simple oil and vinegar style dressing.

This will be a go-to for a long time to come. If you like Turkish or Mediterranean-style food, go check it out!

Due to the popularity of a couple of these, there's a good chance that you've already been before. But if by some miracle you haven't, please check them out! You won't regret it. :) So what are some of your favorite places to eat? Let me know in the comments!
