Food Crawl to Offer International Flavors

CHAMBERSBURG – A food crawl offered in downtown Chambersburg on Saturday, April 2, will satisfy nearly every craving with cuisine that has origins from around the world.

At least ten restaurants are signed up for the event, which requires tickets to be pre-purchased at $25 each. Tickets are offered for two segments of time between 1 and 5 p.m.

“It brings people downtown, and they’re able to explore tastes offered in restaurants,” said Monica Mata, owner of Veroni Café, 12 W. King St.

Veroni Café, which often features the cooking of Mata’s sister, Neftali Bitner, will feature tacos during the food crawl. Its meat selection on the regular menu includes tilapia, shrimp, chicken and ground beef.

Amer Chaudhry owns Falafel Shack with his wife, Jasmina Ademovic, on Memorial Square. He plans to provide samples of his own recipe for hummus, which is sold not only in the restaurant, but also in The Butcher Shoppe and micromarkets inside area businesses.

Chaudhry enjoys that the international food crawl will be another event to bring people downtown. He said he hears great feedback from guests who enjoy the Middle Eastern cuisine and hospitality at the restaurant the couple opened in 2018.

“We live in a wonderful, wonderful community,” he said.

Sam Thrush, president of Downtown Chambersburg Inc., said he hopes the food crawl gets ticketholders into restaurants they may not have tried previously. He wants them to see the variety available at Chambersburg’s restaurants and breweries.

“It is a great event to taste food, try something new and leave with a full stomach,” he said.

Jordyn’s Caffé’s proprietor, Jordyn Velasquez, agreed that the food crawl will give people an opportunity to try to her Salvadorian food, possibly for the first time, and discern how its flavors are different than Mexican food. Her initial plan was to serve tamales during the crawl.

“Every time we’ve done an event with Downtown Chambersburg Inc., we have seen an increase in traffic to the restaurant,” she said.

Velasquez, whose restaurant is at 109 S. Main St., has seen positive developments in Chambersburg in recent years. She looks forward to friends and neighbors trying new things April 2.
