About Tastes of the World
Travel the globe without leaving the Midwest.
North Dakota has a rich heritage of Swedish, Norwegian & German influences. Traditionally, a meat and potatoes diet reflected that.
But downtown Fargo’s restaurants decided to step out of the carb-loaded comfort zone and introduce exotic flavors into Midwestern minds and haven’t looked back.
You’ll begin with a very North Dakotan bite -- a bison burger. Then it’s off to Italy for some classic pastas with a twist, before we dive into Norwegian lutefisk (pickled herring) and smørbrød (open-faced Scandinavian sandwiches) as a nod to our heritage.
Jewish-Nordic bagels are next, followed by sausages and sauerkraut of Germany. We’ll spice it up with some Mexican street food, before jet setting to Japan for a refreshing sushi roll, and finally finishing in France over delicate pastries.
