HELPFUL HINTS: SPANISH
Spanish Resources in Manchester, NH: Michael Clauss - (Download this helpful hint as a PDF)
Looking to find some Spanish or Mexican cuisine or perhaps pick up some authentic materials for your Spanish classroom? Look no further. Within blocks of the conference are several stores and restaurants you may want to check out.
Two Guys Food Market – Located on the corner of Union and Central streets, this Colombian owned and market is a goldmine for authentic resources. They have an excellent selection of foods, magazines and comics, greeting cards, beverages, and more, imported from all over the world. It’s just like visiting a small grocery store in Latin America. And the owners are very friendly.
Tropical Food Market – Another small market worth checking out although the selection isn’t quite as good as Two Guys Food Market.
El rincón zacatecano taquería – Another taquería located closet o the Radisson. I’ve never eaten there, but it has gotten some pretty good reviews online.
Don Quijote Restaurant – I’ve also never been here. It has mixed reviews, but if you’re in the mood for some Spanish cuisine I’d check it out.
Do you know of any more places worth visiting? Let us know and we’ll add them to the list.
