A Foodie's Tour of Hanover's Neighbor: White River Junction
About ten minutes down the road from Hanover is the beloved little town of White River Junction, and surprisingly, it has some pretty amazing food. The best part? They are all within a block of one another. Read below for my favorites!

Two words for you. Turkish Cuisine. It’s incredible. There are so many different types of kababs to chose from, and they still manage to have some pretty incredible vegetarian options. I’ve been there twice, once with my parents and once with my friend’s parents. It was originally recommended to us by our Writing 5 professor who grew up in the area. She really knew what she was talking about. Needless to say, I’m a big fan. 10/10 recommend.

They call themselves a "modern apothecary cafe." Not entirely sure what that means, but I'm here for it. I didn’t know about this place until more recently, but boy is it good. It is tiny and very hipster-esque. They have tons of smoothies made with fresh fruits and vegetables, which are very refreshing. My favorite is the mint berry, but that’s not even the extent of it. They have food! Their avocado toast? Unparalleled. I’ve heard they have good coffee too, but I’ve never tried it. I’ve only been once, but hope to go again soon.

Oh boy. This place is located right next door to Tuckerbox, and man is it an eye-catcher. The window is covered in plants and greenery with cute and vibey antique furniture to match the aesthetic. In addition to their drinks and their pastries, they also serve a full menu. Two of my friends have their own foodstagrams, and they cannot get over this place, which means you know it’s gotta be good.

TRAIL BREAK taps + tacos
And now for my personal favorite! As someone from Texas, I am very judgmental when it comes to Mexican food that is east of the Mississippi River. This place makes the cut. Their tacos and burritos are both unique and innovative. Their salsas and guacamoles all have a distinctive flavor that makes them so different than what you’re used to. And the decor? Such a New Hampshire vibe. I really want their sign that hangs in the front of the restaurant that says ‘Ski the East.’ I’ve been to TRAIL BREAK more times than I can count. Too good.
