Close to half of Alaska’s population lives in and around Anchorage so it is here where you’ll find the most diverse selection of restaurants, bistros and cafes. From quaint American diners to upscale Italian, Asian and seafood restaurants, the varied Anchorage food scene provides a wide selection of cuisine to satisfy your appetite.
Fresh cold water seafood is possibly Alaska’s most well known specialty. Enjoy salmon prepared in many delicious ways, from smoked and cured to jerky style. Alaskan king crabs are also synonymous with the beautiful frontier state. The ample size of these king crabs are often enough to feed a whole group. Big game such as moose and caribou can also be part of the rural Alaska diet. Prepared in a myriad of tantalizing ways, these meats provide a much needed food source to those living away from the bigger cities.
