Anong’s Thai Cuisine | Korean House | Antelope Truckstop Pronghorn Restaurant
For a city of Cheyenne’s size (roughly 65,000 residents), we have a wide selection of Asian restaurants. Culinary options from all over Asia are represented, so whether you crave curry, kung pao chicken, or sushi, you’ll be able to find it! This week -- Thai, Korean, and Indian food!
Anong’s Thai Cuisine – 620 Central Ave., Cheyenne
Authenticity is paramount at Anong’s from its food to the décor. Thai owners and managers have seen to it that the establishment bring the taste of Thailand to Wyoming. The menu boasts a large variety of curries, stir-fries, and noodles, this is a restaurant that it is easy to please both meat-lovers and vegetarians. Step away from the Wild West and into Southeast Asia for a delectable mini-vacation (without the sand in your board shorts!)
“I just returned from a month in Southeast Asia. Prior to this trip, Anong's was my only source of Thai food. While in Thailand and the surrounding area, I confirmed that the food I had been eating at Anong's was not only delicious but authentic. I especially like the Maasaman Chicken and the Satay Chicken. The Larb Salad is another special treat!” – Jeri G.
Korean House – 3219 Synder Ave., Cheyenne
This off the beaten path Korean restaurant is like stepping off the curb in Cheyenne and into a tiny family-run restaurant in the countryside of Asia. The décor, the menus, the music - so genuine. Located near the Air Force Base, the ladies that run this hidden gem get a lot of business from the Military families, many of whom were stationed overseas. The food extends regionally beyond Korea (they have several Japanese items on the menu). The tiny shop only accepts cash, so come prepared!
“I love this place. It is so authentic. The food is consistently good. If you've never had Korean food or just don't know what you want their pictures on the wall of all the dishes to help you out.” – Jen L.
Antelope Truck Stop Pronghorn Restaurant – 4850 I-80 Service Rd., Burns
Perhaps the most unexpected restaurant on our list, Pronghorn’s is THE place to get Punjabi Indian food. Don’t let the truck stop bit scare you, these folks know what they are doing. Another great option for vegetarians, the menu has multiple options. A great opportunity to venture east in Laramie County, this 30-minute drive from Cheyenne is worth it for the made-from-scratch menu!
"One of our friends ate here and recommended us to try the food. So we decided to give a shot to this place and drove 85 miles to try the food. This is a family run little restaurant at gas station. They make homemade Punjabi (north India) food and it is out of this world. If you are familiar with "Dhaba" in India, it is exactly like that. We visit this place every three months and tried all of their dishes...all are equally good." –Aniruddha D.
In this series, we’re highlighting some of the restaurants around the county that may be a bit off the beaten path, but are well-worth the stop.
