Critic: Covington Street Food Concept Serves Up 'Creative, Colorful' Dishes

Eater reads the reviews so you don't have to


— Helen Freud visits international street food haven Bacobar in Covington: The Covington restaurant's dishes are "creative, colorful and fun." The critic writes that "restaurant concepts such as this often cast too wide a net, emphasizing quantity of ingredients over quality of craft." However, Bacabar "doesn't fall into that trap, and dishes are executed with a delicate hand, taking care not to confuse too many flavors." Order the bacos —€” "steamed bao buns configured as tacos." The chipotle and agave brisket bacos "present a hybrid of Asian and Southern barbecue flavors, and fatty brisket bits are complemented with crunchy Brussels sprouts slaw and fried shallots."

— Krisitine Froeba puts Magasin Café to the test: The banh mi sandwiches "The sandwiches are light, fresh, and garnished with julienned vegetables, cilantro, and jalapeños." Each one is served on a French baguette. Froeba suggests ordering the fried Crab Rangoon and the Café Sua Da or Vietnamese Tea made with condensed milk," if you're "in an indulgent mood."
