Take a Trip on the Flavors of Fairfield Culinary Tour of Local Eateries With Global Cuisine

Have a hankering for chicken pad Thai? How about carnitas or mofongos?

They are just a sampling of dishes from 21 international restaurants and three bakeries, all located in Fairfield.

Eateries include food from Nepal, India, Italy, Vietnam, Peru, Mexico, West Africa and other countries.

In partnership with Travel Butler County, Fairfield is launching the Flavors of Fairfield program now through May 15 in celebration of National Food Month.

“We have a kind of a gem here in Fairfield. We have a number of international restaurants dotting (Ohio) Route 4 and other parts of the city,’’ said Nathaniel Kaelin, the city’s economic development manager.

“We have something unique here and we want to share it This highlights the (international) restaurants in Fairfield.”

Like Travel Butler County’s Donut Trail, participants who visit four restaurants or bakeries will earn a commemorative spork medal. Those who make it to eight by May 15 will be entered in a drawing for two, $1,000 and two $500 gift cards to Jungle Jim’s International Market.

“Jungle Jim’s International Market has long been the iconic center of culinary adventure in Fairfield. Building on that foundation, the Flavors of Fairfield pass invites people to explore the city even further and experience international cuisines in a new way,” said Kathryn Rawlinson, vice president of marketing and communications at Travel Butler County.

“Some of the region’s very best food can be enjoyed in Fairfield, and we are excited for more people to discover global cuisine at local eateries.”

Qualifying restaurants are locally owned, non-American, located in Fairfield and have fewer than five locations, Kaelin said.

Participants can download their pass at www.flavorsoffairfield.com. When going to each restaurant or bakery participants should enter the code found at each site.

Once four codes have been entered, participants can go to Jungle Jim’s, 5440 Ohio 4, or Travel Butler County, 8756 Union Centre Blvd., to pick up the spork medal.

An Fairfield food promotion featuring locally owned restaurants and bakeries with international cuisine will offer a spork medal to registered participants who visit four eateries on the Flavors of Fairfield tour.

“Stretch your palette a little bit,’’ said Mayor Mitch Rhodus. “I’ve tasted things I thought I would never, ever order.”

  • Acapulco, 5953 Boymel Drive.
