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 provides culture to a community and we’re lucky to have a few gems!
Little Lebanon To Go (Currently closed, which is heartbreaking 💔) – This place had AMAZING mediterranean food and was a hidden gem for sure. David and I had been fans going back to their former restaurant in Somersworth, Quick to Go. Between their Shawarma and Falafel, the food is delicious. Each time we visited, we usually come home with multiple items (i.e. Tzatziki, Tabouleh) from their cooler. I hope you return Little Lebanon To Go and good luck to Amer ❤️.
Cinco de Mayo Bar & Grill – This is one of our favorite restaurants in town! Cresencio, Miguel Alberto and the staff are incredibly friendly and always entertaining with their personalities and singing. I’ve had great Mexican food in both Mexico and California and this place feels and tastes authentic, many of the dishes coming from memories of Cresencio & Miguel Alberto’s mother’s cooking.
Saigon & Tokyo – This gem is another amazing restaurant 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 😋! Check out my recipe here!
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 fantastic too 😋! Sorry, no photos from this gem 🙁.
Oriental Delight – They feature authentic Chinese Szechuan, Mandarin and Japanese cuisine. This is our go-to for sushi and boy is it tasty!
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 🍻
