The cultural melting pot makes for a fascinating assortment of cuisines. Asia, Europe, the Middle East and Africa are all well represented in restaurants big and small, simple and sophisticated. What they have in common is that they’re usually family affairs offering traditional home-style cooking based on recipes handed down through generations.
