One of the best things about this little town in Big Sky Country is the abundance of local food. Bison burgers, fresh cherries, Dixon Melons, and Mexican food are just a few of the local options. Cherry chutney, cheese sauce with hot chili peppers, and yellow cake ice cream are just a few of the quintessentially Missoula culinary teasers that you will love. You might be surprised to hear that Thai food is also popular here and that there is an active food cart culture. Be prepared to wait in line for some of Missoula's iconic food stops. Try some pumpkin black bean tamales to get a taste of the delicious vegetarian options here. For a real taste of Missoula, one of America's favorite ice cream shops is in town.
