Fly around the world without ever leaving the Hershey Harrisburg Region! How? By visiting one of these ethnic dining spots. We’ll head to India, Mexico, Latin America, and Japan. No passports or boarding passes needed. Now, on to the trip!

 

INDIA
India produces more varieties of spices than any other country in the world. So, it’s no wonder the country is known as the Land of Spices. Using all these spices, Bollywood Bar and Grille cooks up authentic dishes sure to tantalize the taste buds. You’ll find customary Indian cuisine like tandoor, curries, basmati rice, and naan bread. And some untraditional takes on the menu as well, like a mango-lian curry. The owners of Bollywood invite you to feast with all your senses. Indian food is about the presentation and smells almost as much as the taste itself (which will of course blow you away).

MEXICO
The national dish of Mexico is mole poblano, and there are many stories of how Mole came to be. Some date back to 16th century Mexico and others all the way to Aztec times. However you think mole was invented, El Sol on Third Street is cooking up this traditional dish right. Starting with a traditional mole sauce with chocolate and chili, smothering chicken with it and serving it alongside rice and bean. Other traditional Mexican fare is available, too! Including a great happy hour featuring fresh, made-to-order margaritas.

LATIN AMERICA
La Noche Cantina is El Sol’s culinary cousin. In fact, they live next door to one another. Located right next door to the popular Mexican establishment is a restaurant that just turned two years old. La Noche Cantina is serving up Latin fusion dishes. Patrons have described the cuisine as a blend of Mexican, Spanish and Cuban. Either way, the food is done right. Cooked with high quality ingredients by chefs creating unique flavor profiles. Try the tapas/botanas while you’re there – small plates that pack a big punch of flavor.
