Daraius:   One of my favorite treats is attending the Berkshire Hathaway annual meeting (affectionately called “ Woodstock for Capitalists”) in Omaha, Nebraska.  I went to my 1st meeting in 2007 with my good friend Mike, and I was hooked!

This year I attended the meeting with my friends Stefan, who writes Rapid Travel Chai, and Mike.

Of Course We Checked Out the Restaurants! Find Out Where to Eat in Omaha!

Berkshire Hathaway Meeting 2015 Index:

Restaurants in Omaha

I love eating ethnic food when I travel and explore new places.  Omaha didn’t disappoint!

Here are my reviews of the restaurants we visited during our trip.

International Café

I chatted with our Uber driver, who was from Sudan, and got a recommendation to International Café, an Ethiopian restaurant.

When asking for recommendations, I ask for places where He or She eats, NOT places which they suggest to others.

I Love Trying New Ethnic Foods!

I love talking with Uber drivers and learning their inspiring story (many of them are immigrants).  And they usually know the best place in town for cheap and delicious meals!

The International Cafe in Omaha Was Recommend by Our Uber Driver and the Food Was Great!

As we walked in, everyone turned to look at us, since we weren’t the, umm, usual clientele of the restaurant.  I guess it’s not a hot spot for finance and miles & points geeks!  😉

These Folks KNOW Their Food – It Was Amazing!

We ordered a bit of everything and a cold mango drink which was very sweet and tasted of fresh, ripe mangoes!

The restroom had an unusual sign in it.  But was more evidence that the restaurant was all about good food!

Bohemian Café

Stefan suggested eating at Bohemian Café, which was recommended on Road Food.

Road Food is a site that suggests restaurants on major highways and in cities for folks taking road trips.  The places you’ll find on Road Food are typically casual, hole-in-the-wall restaurants with terrific food!

The Bohemian Cafe Is a Czech Restaurant With the Motto “Vitame Vas,” Which Means “We Welcome You”

The restaurant had a quirky personality.

Dry Humor!

The dumpling soup was delicious!

Many Folks Recommend the Liver Dumpling Soup, but I Went With the Chicken Which Was Also Excellent

And the goulash was rich and hearty!

Filling up on Protein and Carbs After Another a Long Day in Omaha

We saw plum dumplings on the menu for dessert and couldn’t resist them!  We placed our order for the dumplings along with our other food, because it takes 30 minutes to make them.

The Plum Dumplings Are Served With Cottage Cheese & Sour Cream

And boy were they worth the wait!  It was served with cream and the soft juicy plum complemented the chewy dumpling.

If You Find Yourself in the Bohemian Cafe, I Recommend Giving These Little Dumplings a Try!

Sunday Lunch at Dario’s Brasserie

We decided to have brunch together before leaving Omaha on Sunday.  The folks on Chowhound suggested Dario’s Brasserie, so that’s where we headed!

We ordered the fromage du jour as an appetizer, which was more like a grilled cheese sandwich instead of pieces of cheese and bread.

I also had the Meurette, which had mushrooms, red wine, bacon, and eggs!

I had a fantastic time and it was fun catching up with Stefan and Mike!

Good Food, Good Conversation, and Good Company

Heartland of America Park

After brunch on Sunday, we walked around the Heartland of America Park.  Part of the park is on the headquarters of the food company, Con Agra, but the walking path is open to the public.

We walked past the fountain spouting water high above the city skyline.

It’s Almost a Miniature Version of the Bellagio Fountains in Las Vegas. The Water Shoots 300 Feet Into the Air and at Night the Spectacle Includes a Light Show.

We came across what we thought were ducks feasting on 1 of their departed brethren.

But in Fact, They Were Tenderly Retrieving the Lost Duck From the Water. It Was a Touching Sight.

We walked along the path, and noticed green hillsides perfect for picnicking and hanging out!

Bottom Line

Omaha, Nebraska, may not sound like an exciting place to visit.  But it has a wonderful blend of Midwestern friendliness, hospitality, ethnic food, and relaxing places to explore!

And there are a few more restaurants I’d like to try when I return next year!

What an AV Geek trip to Omaha without going to the Strategic Air Command Museum? You missed out my friend.

@DaninMCI – I’ll be back to check it out. It sounds very exciting!

Nice writeup. As an Omaha native resident, I’d say you picked an eclectic bunch of restaurants and Omaha has a ton of restaurants per capita. Next time you come for Berkshire you should check out the Henry Doorly Zoo, ranked #1 in the WORLD by TripAdvisor in 2014.

@JayPak – Thanks! I’ll put the zoo on my list for the next time. What are your favorite restaurants in Omaha?

the food looks so good. I forgot my breakfast this morning on my way to work so now I’m hungry thanks!

Good writeup! Looks like a nice place to visit for a weekend.
