Boulder Dushanbe Teahouse
Boulder's sister city Dushanbe, Tajikistan, donated this ornate building to the City of Boulder more than a decade ago. Builders imported and erected more than 30 tons of material to build the structure, which was finished in 1988. It quickly assumed a prominent role in Boulder history. Now a popular gathering place among locals, this cultural spot serves an array of exotic cuisine (Burmese Coconut Curry and Tajik Plov for example) and fine teas in rooms boasting bright designs and colorful African artifacts.
I finally got a chance to try Dushanbe Teahouse outand it was a big disappointment. Let me just say the service was bad and we waited almost an hour to get our food. When the came there was a big black hair plain as day sticking out of my wrap. It was just gross. We didn't want to eat our food after that and asked for the bill. I definitely won't go back.
Made reservations 6 weeks in advance to take grandaughters to High Tea. I told them I was bringing a 10 & 12 yr. old. Upon arival we were seated immediately. Waitress arrived with a bottle of Champagne and asked if anyone wanted Champagne - Come on!! It may be Boulder but I don't think even in Boulder 10 & 12 yr. olds can drink. Service was exceptionally slow. Starter food was definitely not for 10 & 12 yr. olds. Don't know exactly what it was but had polenta, oysters and sun dried tomatoes in a sause. I liked it but grandaughters just barley tasted. Tea sandwhichs were mediocre. Scones and a artichoke stuffed pastery was exceptional. Sweets were avarage. Tea was very good. The Tea House is unique and interesting.
I have been to the teahouse many times. We always bring visitors here. The food is consistently excellent and imaginative. It is also prepared without excessive fat or salt, very healthy. I love this place!
I've had tea at a lot of tea houses, this is the best one I've been to in the US! Its definitely the only reason I visit Boulder anymore (well that and to see the Jamaican guy shove himself into a little box on pearlstreet). The tea selection is wonderful, the menu rocks and changes frequently, the building is a beautiful handcarved work of art. I haven't had a chance to take in High Tea yet but it looks amazing. This is a must for any and all tea lovers!
I love Dushanbe. The food is honestly wonderful and also very original. If you are looking for something different, definitely try this place. I've never been dissapointed with the food, try the vegetarian koofta balls-they're excellent.
