Found this to be a fun read about what cuisine outside of the main local cuisine is worthy for food explorers like ourselves. Some may be well-known (e.g., Hmong food in Minnesota), but I found a few surprising recommendations, even for my own state.
MA has a reputation for having a sizable Vietnamese population, and also a Cape Verdean population. Even though I know there are a lot with Armenian heritage locally, I have never thought about Armenian cuisine and haven’t tried the places mentioned in the article. I’ve heard of Anoush’ella, but rarely venture to that area since it’s not the easiest for me to get to. I hope many of these places can weather through the pandemic so I can give these places a try.
