One of the newest editions to the town’s culinary repertoire, Base Camp Cafe — yes, that’s a reference to Mount Everest — just opened its doors in August. The Nepali restaurant makes a splash with its commitment to organic products, including various dumplings and jackfruit curry. For more adventurous diners, Base Camp Cafe also offers relatively exotic options for Hanover, such as wild boar ribs, goat tarkari and buffalo dumplings. The owner, Bhola Pandey, is a Nepali restaurateur with a degree in research nutrition who aims to create healthy dishes. Salubre Trattoria, an Italian restaurant, previously operated in the venue in which Base Camp now resides.Best dish: Lamb and mushroom tarkari with basmati rice
