Nestled deep in Pennsylvania Dutch country, Ephrata is an area that has drawn travelers since the early 1700s. German and Dutch settlers brought with them the homey, hearty food that locals enjoy to this day. You can watch the local Amish and Mennonite populations driving their horses and buggies along the winding roads while enjoying a dish of chicken pot pie Pennsylvania-style and hot from the stove. A favorite holiday dish of locals, pork and sauerkraut, can be enjoyed any day of the year. Make sure not to miss dessert because shoo-fly pie, made from molasses and brown sugar, lives up to its name with enough sweetness to "catch a fly." Ephrata offers a peek back into history with a menu that even the most modern person can enjoy to the fullest.
