Some of my favorite restaurants in Dover, New Hampshire

I found this weekend to be particularly hard and I’m incredibly saddened by the hate in our society. I won’t spend time sharing my political views because this blog is focused on yummy “eats” & “treats”. Much of the food I feature here is inspired by great chefs that cook from their heart and heritage. Great food brings people together from all backgrounds, differences aside. For this post, I plan to feature food from various cuisines across Dover, New Hampshire. Having restaurants with diversity, make a town special and provide culture to a community and we’re lucky to have a few gems!

Little Lebanon To Go – This place has AMAZING mediterranean food and is hidden gem for sure. David and I been fans since Quick to Go, their former restaurant in Somersworth, for many years. Between their Shawarma and Falafel, you can’t go wrong. Each time we visit, we usually come home with multiple items (i.e. Tzatziki, Tabouleh) from their cooler. If you live local of if you’re driving through the seacoast, you must try Little Lebanon!

Here’s their meat pies, lentils and Saganaki, we fried at home πŸ˜‹

Cinco de Mayo Bar & Grill – This is one of our favorite restaurants in town! Cresencio, Miguel and the staff are incredible friendly and always entertaining with their personalities and singing. I’ve had great Mexican food in both Mexico and California and this place is very authentic, many of the dishes coming from memories of Cresencio & Miguel’s mother’s cooking.

This sizzling dish is there Queso Fundido, which inspired my Queso Fundido

Saigon & Tokyo – This gem is another amazing restaurants in Dover, NH. They feature Chinese, Vietnamese and Japanese cuisine. I tend to go with Pho when visiting and it is one dish I often crave because it is so delicious πŸ˜‹

This is their Phở BΓ² ViΓͺn (i.e. Vietnamese noodle soup with meatballs)

Khaophums – Amazing authentic Thai food! My favorite dish is the Crazy Noodles, which features a spicy stir-fried flat rice noodle with chicken, string beans, onion, bell peppers and basil leaves. Their Crab Rangoons are delicious too πŸ˜‹ Sorry, no photos

Oriental Delight – They feature authentic Chinese Szechuan, Mandarin and Japanese cuisine. This is our go-to for sushi and boy is it tasty!

Some of our favorites – Upper left is Spicy Scallop; Upper right is the Dover Roll featuring spicy tuna, tempura flake, avocado, seaweed salad and tobiko on top; and the Tempura Salmon Roll which features scallions, cream cheese and it’s topped with unagi sauce and spicy mayonnaise ❀

There’s certainly many other diverse restaurants in Dover, but these are a few of my favorite spots. I’d love to hear whether you’ve tried any of the restaurants I mentioned and whether you have a favorite dish, cheers 🍻
