Bonchon Uptown Open

Bonchon in Uptown is Open

Bonchon Uptown 17

Bonchon in Uptown is Open! What’s in the box?! From Busan, South Korea to New York to Minnesota…we are finally the latest addition for Bonchon Chicken. Woo to the Hoo! Also, we are not only blessed with one location in Uptown, Minneapolis, but a second coming very soon to Dinkytown.

Bonchon aka “My Hometown” does chicken, and damn do they do something special to the chicken. KFC – no, not the colonel, Korean Fried Chicken to be exact – think, much crunchier and less greasy, because it is double fried and still is tender and juicy…I love it!

Bonchon Uptown 2

Thanks to my good friend Marshall N. Nguyen, Vice President of Caspian Group for securing both locations for Bonchon.  Caspian is a full service Commercial Real Estate company that represents many business owners and assists them in finding the perfect location and negotiates on their behalf.  Marshall is the man if you are looking to open a restaurant or any business for that matter.

The uptown location where I’m crunching away right now is at 1414 Lake Street (Old Davanni’s). Come one, come all when they swing these doors open to the public today at 4PM Wednesday October 3rd!!

Ok, pay attention because I’m about to break down the deets:

Bonchon Uptown 19

Bonchon Uptown 24

Bonchon Uptown 22

SIGNATURE FRIED CHICKEN SOY GARLIC / SPICY / HALF & HALF – Their chicken is made-to-order, please allow up to 30 minutes for cooking time. In order to maintain the taste and quality of their product…also, their sauces that they lightly brush on the double fried chicken are not available on the side.

Bonchon Uptown 10

CHICKEN KATSU – Breaded chicken cutlet served over a bed of steamed rice and vegetables on the side, drizzled with katsu sauce and spicy mayo. Little thicker than I’ve seen (I like that) and a good portion. Don’t care for their white rice much.

Bonchon Uptown 9

TTEOKBOKKI – Rice cakes and fish cakes simmered with scallions and onion in Bonchon Hot Sauce topped with mozzarella cheese and kimari. 🔥 Spicy

Bonchon Uptown 20

KOREAN TACOS – Spicy Chicken or Marinated Ribeye (Bulgogi) over three warm flour tortillas filled with crisp lettuce and coleslaw, topped with buttermilk ranch, spicy mayo and red onions. 3 per order. Went with the spicy chicken. I’m pretty much in love with their coleslaw.

Bonchon Uptown 14

BULL DAK – Spicy chicken stir-fried with rice cakes and Bonchon Signature Hot Sauce, sautéed onions, topped with thinly sliced scallions and mozzarella cheese. Served with white rice and steamed vegetables. Spiciest thing on their menu, know this.

Bonchon Uptown 7

HOUSE FRIED RICE – Fried rice, eggs, red bell pepper, onions and Bonchon Soy Garlic Sauce. Choice of: Chicken (+$1), Bulgogi (+$2), Seafood (+$2), or Kimchi Bacon (+$2). Kimchi was the choice…and a very smart choice. I’m a fan of their fried rice.

Bonchon Uptown 11

PORK BUNS – Slice of savory pork belly dressed with Bonchon Soy Garlic Sauce, topped with cucumbers, coleslaw, spicy mayo, and katsu sauce. 3 per order. It’s a nice chunk of pork, flavored nicely, I think the bun needs a little tweaking, was a bit wet, but that might be the coleslaw’s doing.

Bonchon Uptown 6

SALMON AVOCADO BALL – A mix of avocado, crab meat, cucumber, fish roe wrapped in seared fresh salmon, topped with spicy mayo, unagi sauce and crunchy tempura bits. The salmon was nicely torched I believe, rather than seared, either way, it worked. It’s a light refreshing starter dish.

Bonchon Uptown 4

TAKOYAKI – Fried octopus dumplings drizzled with Japanese mayonnaise, katsu sauce and sprinkled with bonito flakes. Can’t go wrong with these!

Bonchon Uptown 8

SLIDERS – Crispy chicken strips (soy garlic or spicy ) or marinated ribeye (bulgogi), fresh cucumber, spicy mayo, red onions and coleslaw, served on a mini potato bun. 3 per order. Since I had the spicy chicken on the tacos, went with the bulgogi on the sliders. They are marinated well, probably great for kids or late night snack, but $4 a slider, I’m just not sure they will be a big hit when you can just order a big dish of bulgogi.

Bonchon Uptown 13

POTSTICKERS – Lightly fried pork and vegetable dumplings brushed with Bonchon Signature Sauce. Choice of: spicy , soy garlic or half & half – crispy and full of meat. Table favorite, next to the chicken.

Bonchon Uptown 1

They’ll only be serving dinner this week, they will implement lunch next week. Be ready for 2am-3am closing times on the weekends. Yay to late night drunken KFC!!

Jalapeno Spam Curds

Jalapeño Spam Curds – LOCATION: Spam – REVIEW: 7/10 $8 – it’s Spam, I love Spam! New this year is the jalapeno version curds, so I had to get…for y’all! Although, I really wish they’d change the breading. It’s like grocer frozen chicken nugget style.

Strawberry Basil Lemonade – LOCATION: Farmers Union Coffee Shop – REVIEW: 5.5/10 $7.00 (20oz) – fresh and pulpy, not as sweet as you’d expect. So that’s lacking for a lemonade.

Turducken Sausage Sandwich

Turducken Sausage Sandwich – A blend of turkey, duck and chicken served on a fennel bun and accompanied by a side of Giggles’ sweet and saucy relish. Gluten-friendly bun available upon request; sausage is gluten-free, no nitrates added. LOCATION:  Giggles’ Campfire Grill – REVIEW:  5/10 $7.00 – good brat goin on here. The after taste is what brought the rating down. Your call on this one, people.

New *Uffda (Beaver Island) – s’more (Excelsior) – Dill Pickle Ale (Tin Whiskers) – LOCATION: Giggles’ Campfire Grill – REVIEW 8/10 on all beers including the new UFDA (they revamped the other two to improve the taste, I dig!!

LOCATION:  The Hangar – REVIEW:  7/10 $10 – I pleaded and begged to get one of each, but just that you know, you CAN’T. It’s all three different burgers, or three different brisket…and so on, you CAN’T mix-n-match Beef, Pork, etc. Anyhow, luscious tasting sliders served up in this huge awesome Hanger with live music and plenty of outdoor games. It’s a party in here with plenty of beer and room! The Burger was my least fave out of trio.

Chicken Bacon Ranch Quesadilla

Chicken Bacon Ranch Quesadilla – LOCATION: Quesadilla Junction – REVIEW: 9/10 $10 – it’s a dope ass CBR Quesadilla!

Za-Waffle Sticks

Za-Waffle Sticks – Waffles blended with pepperoni and mozzarella, topped with a parmesan herb blend and served with pepperoni-infused maple syrup or marinara sauce. LOCATION:  Green Mill – REVIEW:  3/10 $5 – Dry. Choke Hazard. Syrup was good, for an extra bump in the rating. Loved them last year. This time they dropped the ball.

Shrimp Ceviche

Shrimp Ceviche – Fresh shrimp, cucumbers, jalapeños, onions, tomatoes and cilantro tossed with a citrus lime juice and served cold with tortilla chips. LOCATION:  Shrimp Shack – REVIEW:  4.5/10 $7 – lacking on sour, over powering on black pepper.

Bratwurst Burger

Bratwurst Burger (Double) – LOCATION: Mac’s Grille – REVIEW: 6/10 $6.75 – decent brat burger. I’ve tasted much better. Not enough brat flavor, missing that punch.

Messy Giuseppe

Messy Giuseppe – A blend of seasoned ground beef and Italian pork sausage smothered in marinara, sprinkled with parmesan cheese and served on crusty Italian bread. LOCATION:  Mancini’s al Fresco – REVIEW:  7.5/10 $7.75 – That’s one huge slice of bread, could use a little more smothered meat, but still…spicy Italian goodness. Fan.

Good luck with handling these.

Ahi Tuna Poke Bowl

LOCATION:  Cafe Caribe – REVIEW:  8.5/10 $9.50 – it’s not too bad here. Some good cuts, some not so good cuts. But overall, it’s a good price with a nice portion. Just shy of loving it.

Earth Wings

Earth Wings® – Fresh cauliflower pieces dipped in a seasoned batter, deep-fried and smothered in organic sesame BBQ sauce. Vegan and gluten-free. LOCATION:  French Meadow Bakery & Café – REVIEW:  8/10 $7 – great texture and flavor, very desirable and I’d get again. BUT…20min line wait plus an hour (exactly) to get this boat full made it not worth it. It really was a shit show.

Smoked Soft Serve Ice Cream

Optional sauces available: bourbon-soaked cherries or hot chocolate. LOCATION:  Blue Moon Dine-In Theater – REVIEW:  6.5/10 $8 – got the coffee flavor with the bourbon cherries. Didn’t get much smoke flavoring all. Coffee? Yes. Cherries were good, almost too many, but was a good bonus for the buck up-charge. I really like their soft serve texture here.

Sweet Greek Cheese Puffs

Sweet Greek Cheese Puffs – Flaky phyllo dough filled with feta and ricotta cheese, deep-fried, drizzled with honey and topped with powdered sugar. LOCATION:  Dino’s Gyros – REVIEW:  8/10 $5 – a cream cheese puff/baklava hybrid? I’m down with this!

LOCATION:  Gass Station Grill- REVIEW:  7.5/10 $6.00 – unique and different is a good thing. Wasn’t expecting much, but as soon as you lift it to your face, you smell pb&j right away.

Ice cream choices include Superman, vanilla, strawberry and chocolate. LOCATION:  Rainbow Ice Cream – REVIEW:  9/10 $8.00 – I got Superman ice cream, many colors involved, but the cut just showed pink. I’m not mad, this is simple and an awesome dessert! Definitely on cloud 9. Love it!

Grand Catch 42

Grand Catch Claws Its Way to St. Paul

Grand Catch 4

Grand Catch Claws Its Way to St. Paul – It just opened yesterday (4/16) and I’m already hooked!! Grand Catch is the newest creation of the masterminds behind Cajun Deli & Milkjam Creamery and they stepped the seafood boil game up a few levels for the Twin Cities food scene.

Grand Catch St. Paul, MN

Grand Catch 8

Starting out with Grand Catch Cheesy Fries – battered fries, garlic butter, cheese sauce. With lobster claw added. C’mon, you know you want this!  I just finished, and I already want it again.

Grand Catch 6

Testing the waters with two pounds of crawfish and one pound of head-on shrimp boiled to perfection and then tossed in their Awesome Sauce (it’s their Garlic Butter & Louisiana, combined) and I got it hot. Next time I’ll try extra hot or the highest level; insane ghost. 🔥 It was spicy, garlicky, buttery, fresh and pure deliciousness. I’m in my happy place aka my zone.

Grand Catch 5

Obviously, I can’t leave without trying some type of Milkjam Creamery creation for dessert.  Raspberry Lychee Twist -Thanks to Elizabeth, this was the perfect cool down. She was awesome, along with the rest of the staff here at Grand Catch.  Hospitality and a happy full belly, I don’t ask for much. They nailed it.

Grand Catch 2

I tried a few tap beers and this mocktail; Crazy Legs, which was refreshingly tart.  Can’t wait until the boozy slushees are available. Soon!

Grand Catch 3

It’s new with 75-80 seats that fill fast at prime time. Lunch and dinner menu are the same and they close at 10pm, plan accordingly. Bibs and gloves make for dope attire, rock them… don’t be shy.

Cowboy Caviar Recipe We've Tried It Blog

Cowboy Caviar Recipe We’ve Tried It

Cowboy Caviar Recipe We've Tried It

Cowboy Caviar Recipe We’ve Tried It – Not only have we tried it, we keep making it over and over! This highly addicting recipe can be paired with your dinner entree, on a sandwich or salad for lunch, over an omelet for breakfast and my personal favorite – with chips and cheese. Simply delicious!

Cowboy Caviar with Chicken

Cowboy Caviar Recipe We’ve Tried It


  • Black beans – 1 15 oz can, rinse and drain
  • Black-eyed peas – 1 15oz can, rinse and drain
  • 3 roma tomatos, remove seeds and dice
  • Sweet Corn 1 cup, I prefer super sweet frozen corn thawed
  • 1 large red bell pepper, washed and diced
  • 1 small/medium red onion, diced
  • 1/2 cup of cilantro, chop finely


  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • Salt
  • Juice from one Lime
  • 1/4 cup of white wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon of sugar

Cowboy Caviar Recipe


In a medium size bowl dump in sweet corn, black beans and black-eyed peas. Be sure you have drained and rinsed beans first. Then chop your cilantro, red pepper, red onion, cilantro, roma tomatoes and add to your bowl.

For the dressing you can mix it up in a separate bowl and mix well before pouring over your cowboy caviar. I personally don’t like to dirty too many dishes so I just add all the ingredients right into my main bowl and then mix throughly. Either way works!

The main ingredients for your dressing are olive oil and white wine vinegar. It is completely up to you what else you add. We like to add fresh lime juice, a little bit of sugar, salt and some minced garlic.

We hope you enjoy this recipe. Please be sure to share with your friends! Check back to see what we cook up next.

Egg Roll Bowl recipe

Sausage Egg Roll in a Bowl Recipe Video

Egg Roll Bowl

Sausage Egg Roll in a Bowl Recipe Video – My sister has been talking about how delicious this recipe is for the past year. My family finally decided it was time to test it out and see if it deserved all the hype that it was getting.

First off let me just say that it is super easy to make. In the video that I made we did not add the minced ginger. The original recipe calls for 1 tablespoon of minced ginger. Feel free to add it in.

I have an extremely picky child who really enjoyed this recipe. We were shocked and knew it must be pretty good if she liked it. It was delicious and we will surly be making again.

Sausage Egg Roll in a Bowl Recipe Video


  • 1 lb ground pork sausage
  • 6 cups (2 bags) shredded coleslaw mix or shredded cabbage
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil


In large skillet brown sausage, making sure it is throughly cooked. Do not drain any left over grease. Once brown, add the coleslaw mix, ginger, garlic and soy sauce. Mix and cook for 3-4 minutes stirring often. Add the green onions, drizzle with sesame oil and serve. 4 servings.

We hope you enjoy Sausage Egg Roll in a Bowl as much as we did!

Hamburguesas El Gordo Cubano  We've Tried It

Hamburguesas El Gordo Restaurant Review

Cubano El Gordo

Hamburguesas El Gordo Cubano

It’s lunch time, it’s snowing, and I needed an obnoxious burger in my life. So, I ordered a Cubano El Gordo with everything – Cheddar, mozzarella, ham, bacon, avocado, onion, tomatoes, lettuce, pickle peppers, mayo, mustard, ketchup, fried egg, chorizo and Vienna sausage. Topped with Extra grilled pineapple. Whew! The Mexican Whopper is what I call it…once you taste it, maybe you’ll get why. Say hi to Luigi, whom runs the front of the house here at Hamburguesas El Gordo he’s a cool ass dude! How are YOU handling the first snowfall of the year (Minnesota)?

Del Gordo Burger

Hamburguesas El Gordo Del Gordo Burger

If you’ve never been to Hamburguesas El Gordo in St. Paul (Payne/Phalen) then you haven’t had Claudia Gutierrez’s famous Del Gordo Burger. It’s just a 1/2-pound handmade patty, topped with cheddar, mozzarella, grilled ham, bacon, avocado, pickled peppers, tomato, onions, lettuce and mayo. Yea, a mouthful, literally. You can also get it with grilled pineapple or doble carne. She used to only make these once-a-week, back in the day. That was until fans couldn’t get enough, and the demand became a business and that business got her to where I am today, at her second location. Burgers, dogos, tacos, elotes, loaded asada fries…and wine & beer coming soon? You know where you can find me on a regular.

Dogo Norteño and Dogo Chilango

Hamburguesas El Gordo Dogo Norteno

Have I told you how much I love hot dogs? Have I told you how much I love that Hamburguesas El Gordo opened this second location? (L) Dogo Norteño – Wrapped on bacon and topped with avocado, grilled onions, cilantro, mustard, ketchup and mayo. (R) Dogo Chilango – Wrapped in bacon and topped with tomatoes, onions, queso fresco and sour cream. These are half the price that other gourmet dogs go for, and they are damn delicious.

Street Tacos

Hamburguesas El Gordo Street Tacos

There’s some new tacos in town. Hamburguesas El Gordo officially opened their second location today on 42nd and Cedar. I’m so excited that Claudia has expanded her business from St. Paul to the City of Minneapolis. Very authentic street tacos with fresh handmade corn tortillas. Oh, and you can get them Norteño style, like I did. Get a “the box” of 10, thank me later.

A Real Taco Box

Hamburguesas El Gordo Real Taco Box

Do you want to do Taco Tuesday right? Grab “A REAL TACO BOX” Handmade tortillas with your choice of meat topped with fresh onions, cilantro, queso fresco and avocado…aka Norteño style. Grabbed these to go from Hamburguesas El Gordo new Minneapolis location. I done good!

Book Club Minneapolis Restaurant Review

Minneapolis Book Club

Book Club Minneapolis Review – On December 5th, 2017 the doors opened to the public at Book Club, a California inspired eatery in the Armatage neighborhood of Minneapolis. Twin Cities’ restaurateur Kim Bartmann and Chef/Owner Asher Miller have partnered up with the newest Bartmann Group’s restaurant.

The menu has some delicious items to choose from;  Wood-fire grilled Balinese chicken, green curry mussels, and whole fried brook trout. They also have burgers, fries, grilled ribeye, and vegetables all year long. Relax and enjoy their contemporary vibe and a warm neighborhood feel. Book Club is open for lunch and dinner every day, and brunch on weekends. There’s also a full bar, a commitment to craft cocktails, extensive wine and beer lists, and a special section at the bar reserved for those waiting for their take-out.

Phatphood’s Book Club Minneapolis Restaurant Review:

I snuck in to try their second ever brunch service, and so far I’m feeling really good about this place. Vanilla custard french toast with walnuts, exactly how I like mine, eggy and custardy. Great choice to start this venture out.

The porchetta eggs benedict served with salad was very good! All elements were perfectly cooked, I don’t think I have ever had an English muffin that was so on point.

You know me, I can’t just try one or two items on my first visit of a brand new restaurant. I definitely needed to try Chef Asher Miller’s pork belly sandwich with swiss, pickles and honey mustard at Book Club. Delicious, my only gripe is that there is a little too much honey mustard, I know, I know…I’m like a condiment/sauce freak, but it took away from the pork. Still loved it! Full!

2017 Minnesota State Fair New Food Review

Phatphood MN State Fair Food Review

2017 Minnesota State Fair New Food Review – The great Minnesota Eat-together is upon us once again. Before the new food list was announced I started telling everyone that I was going to try all the new food items this year, all on the first day…then they announced 30+ items. Ouch. With some much appreciated help of some friends to get the food faster to my face, I accomplished this gluttonous task. Not only trying the items, but taking photos with my iPhone 6 and posting live reviews on Instagram of each item I conquered. Here is how my day went:

Bacon Fluffernutter MN State Fair

Bacon Fluffernutter:  Grilled cinnamon bun sandwich with a bacon, peanut butter and marshmallow cream filling.  LOCATION:  The Sandwich Stop  REVIEW:  9/10 $9 – Wow…everything I love in one sandwich. Only thing keeping it from a 10 is the bacon needs to be crispier and thicker, but just crispier would suffice. Damn good!

Bacon Up Pup MN State Fair

Bacon Up Pup:  Belgian waffle served on-a-stick with bacon in the batter, dipped in chocolate, drizzled with maple syrup, and topped with whipped cream and bacon.  LOCATION:  Granny’s Kitchen Fudge Puppies.  REVIEW:  7/10 $7 – It’s surprisingly not overly sweet with everything involved, then again, it’s not as amazing as I wanted it to be…still really good though! Be careful lifting this off the paper, that maple syrup strings and goes everywhere.  I got it everywhere.

Bowl O' Dough Minnesota State Fair

Bowl O’ Dough:  Scoops of straight-up raw cookie dough that is safe to eat and available in four flavors:  Brownie Batter Swirl (a chocolate chip cookie dough and brownie batter mash-up).   Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough (gluten -free) (a mix of classic cookie dough and chocolate chips).  European Cookie Butter, made with Biscoff (European spiced cookies).  Lemon Ricotta Cheesecake with Blueberries (lemons, fresh curd ricotta cheesecake and blueberries blended into a sugar cookie dough).  All are served with a side of sea salt-flavored ice milk.  LOCATION:  Blue Moon Dine-In Theater.  REVIEW:  7/10 $8 for the flight…Which seems to be the only offering.  Nice flavor profiles here…could be more generous with the portions. When I mixed them all together, I got carrot cake for some reason. I feel like a lot is missing. Wtf?!  Looks at description again.

Breakfast Buddy Bowl

Breakfast Buddy Bowl:  Waffle bowl filled with hash browns, maple syrup, scrambled eggs, cheddar cheese and bacon, topped with a biscuit, country sausage gravy and green onions.  LOCATION:  LuLu’s Public House.  REVIEW:  5/10 $8 – Had potential, was very dry all around. The waffle bowl will get stale and soggy if not eaten quickly. Sausage gravy was good, the maple syrup might throw some people off.  I think LuLu’s preps their food too early so the execution doesn’t come off how it should.

Brown Ale and Onion Tipsy Pie

Brown Ale and Onion-Gouda Tipsy Pie:  Onions caramelized in Lift Bridge Brewery’s Chestnut Hill Brown Ale with smoked Gouda cheese, baked in a pie crust, topped with an onion sugar and drizzled with a sweet beer glaze.  LOCATION:  Sara’s Tipsy Pies.  REVIEW:  2/10 $10 (for two) – Maybe it’s just me, but I am not really into these, like at all. The crust is cool. Beer and onions in a pie? Didn’t work, for me. The chocolate had a weird taste to it as well. Someone next to me demolished theirs. Not me. Nope.

Cheesy Nacho Corn on the Cob MN State Fair

Cheesy Nacho Corn on the Cob:  Roasted corn on the cob lightly coated with crushed Doritos corn chips and nacho cheese.  LOCATION:  Texas Steak Out.  REVIEW:  9/10 $6 – I loved the deep-fried Nachos here last year, and this meets right up there with them. Grab napkins fo yo face!

Cherry Bombs MN State Fair

Cherry Bombs:  Red licorice dipped in batter, deep-fried and dusted with powdered sugar.  LOCATION:  Veggie Fries.  REVIEW:  7/10 $5 – Weird crap.  At first I was like, NO…but then after a couple, it is what it is, and it’s a cool treat. Impressed myself.

Chocolate Popover with Peanut Butter MN State Fair

Chocolate Popover with Peanut Butter Spread:  Hot out-of-the-oven chocolate popover with a side of peanut butter spread.  LOCATION:  LuLu’s Public House.  REVIEW:  3.5/10 $6 – Dry meets dry. The popover by itself is just nothing, add the thick dry PB spread and it gets a tad bit better, but not enough to get this at all.  Pass.

Cranberry Wild Rice Meatballs MN State Fair

Cranberry Wild Rice Meatballs:  Swedish-style meatballs with cranberries and wild rice blend covered with Lingonberry sauce.  LOCATION:  Hamline Church Dining Hall.  REVIEW:  5.5/10 $12.88 – Meatballs were dense and a bit sticky, like they seem to have bread in them?  Maybe it’s the cranberries? I don’t know, but I don’t like the texture.   These are tightly packed balls. Uh oh, here we go again.  Definitely no my style on how these were prepared. Coleslaw, potatoes and cornbread beat out the meatballs.

Deep Fried Avocado MN State Fair

Deep-Fried Avocado:  Avocado slices dipped in a lightly seasoned batter, deep-fried and served with chipotle ranch dipping sauce.  LOCATION:  O’Gara’s.  REVIEW:  9/10 $8 – What I like is the hint of lime either in the batter or on the avocado itself. Nice sized package of chipotle ranch.  These made me happy.

Deviation Stout Steak Taco MN State Fair

Deviation Stout Steak Taco Naan:  Steak marinated in Modist Deviation 004 – Mexican Dark Chocolate Stout beer, grilled and topped with shredded lettuce, pico de gallo, queso fresco, cilantro lime and jalapeño ranch sauces, and wrapped in warm naan flatbread.  LOCATION:  San Felipe Tacos.  REVIEW:  5.5/10 $10 – The steak alone isn’t flavored very much, with it all together, decent, but there’s more naan than anything.  Steak was a bit stringy, as well.

Double Dose Pork Belly MN State Fair

Double Dose of Pork Belly:  100% ground pork belly burger topped with crisp smoked pork belly, pepper jack cheese, coleslaw and pickled onions, served on a toasted bun.  LOCATION:  RC’s BBQ.  REVIEW:  10/10 $6 – We got another one folks! We’ll call it a $6 Slider, but it’s well worth it. Nice amount of heat on here. According to the description, the only thing spicy would be the pepper jack, but I’m going to go with the BBQ sauce they added that wasn’t mentioned in the description.   Let me know when you try it if you thought the same.

Duck Bacon Wontons MN State Fair

Duck Bacon Wontons:  Duck bacon, grilled sweet corn and cream cheese combined inside deep-fried crescent-shaped wontons and served with dipping sauce.  LOCATION:  Giggles’ Campfire Grill.  REVIEW:  8.5/10 $8.50 (each) – Both are damn good, even with the beer.  Wontons were filled plump with all elements in each individual wonton, not some in this one, some in that want…evenly portioned.  Great flavors.  You’ll love these!  Don’t let the word “duck” scare you.  The pickle Ale had a bit more than a slight taste of Pickle, which was perfect…but it lingers around on the palate for a while, and I dig it!

Fall Guy Breakfast Panini MN State Fair

Fall Guy Breakfast Panini:  Capicola and scrambled egg topped with white cheddar on ciabatta.  LOCATION:  The Hideaway Speakeasy.  REVIEW:  4.5/10 $8 – nothing special here, lacking on all levels. Meh.

Hill Country Beef Pocket MN State Fair

Hill Country Beef Pocket: Black pepper mushroom cream and seasoned dipping sauce. LOCATION: The Blue Barn. RATING: 5/10 $8.75 – It’s savory, not bad, not a stand out either.  Definitely not worth it for the steep price for one.

Honey Puffs MN State Fair

Honey Puffs (Loukamades):  Deep-fried dough balls crispy outside and sweet inside, tossed in a sweet syrup and sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar.  LOCATION:  Dino’s Gyros.  REVIEW:  7.5/10 $6 – Sticky and sweet…just as you’d expect. Tasty balls of joy…wait. Never mind.  Get these.

Italian Bomba Sandwich MN State Fair

Italian Bomba Sandwich:  Beer-braised pork shoulder with prosciutto cotto ham, fontina cheese, giardiniera (Italian relish) and aioli on a grilled ciabatta roll.  LOCATION:  Mancini’s al Fresco.  REVIEW:  10/10 $8.25 – This is like a Cuban sandwich and Italian beef hybrid (minus the actual beef) that melts in your mouth, portion is perfect for the price. Fiya/Flame.  Probably my number one of the year.

Memphis Totchos MN State Fair

Memphis Totchos:  Sliced bananas and sautéed bacon over tater tots, topped with peanut sauce.  LOCATION:  Snack House.  REVIEW:  1/10 $9 – These will change your life…for the worse. All separated, it has a chance. All together, death.

Mini Sconuts MN State Fair

Mini Sconuts:  Buttermilk scone holes filled with chocolate, marshmallow and Nutella®, deep-fried and topped with a dusting of powdered sugar (Gluten-free).  LOCATION: French Meadow Bakery & Cafe.  REVIEW:  9/10 $5 – These are scrumptious and are pretty similar to the deep-fried cookie dough in the food building. Go to the left ordering station where it’s not on the menu.  Very confusing place with the wrong price as well.

Mobster's Caviar MN State Fair

Mobster’s Caviar:  Cream cheese dip with crab meat, green onions, fresh red pepper and water chestnuts, served with whole wheat flatbread crackers.  LOCATION:  The Hideaway Speakeasy.  REVIEW:  7.5/10 $11 – Good portion, perfect for sharing, wish the bread was buttered and toasted along with more of a wedge of lemon. A bit of a cluster being a brand new restaurant here, where do you stand after your owrder? You’ve been warned.  Also trying the Cotton Candy Bubble Trouble: Real, fresh-spun State Fair cotton candy in a champagne flute, doused with Cannon River Winery’s Sparkle Edelweiss. REVIEW: 9/10 $9 – The magic and taste work! This was sweet and refreshing.

Pie in the Sky Malt & Sundae MN State Fair

Pie’n the Sky Malt & Sundae:  A sweet and tart mix of crunchy, spiced “airplane” cookies and lemon curd, topped with dark chocolate drizzle and served with vanilla ice cream as a sundae or malt.  LOCATION:  Dairy Goodness Bar.  REVIEW:  6.5/10 $5 – It’s no peanut buster parfait, but it’s a nice little concoction. I didn’t really care for the lemon curd, but that’s just me.

Pizzarito MN State Fair

Pizzarito:  Flour tortilla filled with pepperoni, Italian sausage, risotto, mozzarella and marinara, coated with garlic butter, parmesan and Italian spices, baked and served with a side of marinara.  LOCATION:  Green Mill.  REVIEW:  9.5/10 $5 – This tastes amazing, with rice even!  Excuse me, risotto?!  It just works. Good size, good price…I’m a fan.

Raspberry Hard Cider Mn State Fair

Raspberry Hard Cider (which is new) – and a boat load of Perch (not new). LOCATION: Giggles’ Campfire Grill. REVIEW: 1/10 $8.50 (da beer) – yuk. Waaaay to fruity for my liking of a brew.

Slow Roasted Pork Mole Tamale Mn State Fair

Slow-Roasted Pork Mole Tamale:  Fresh corn tamale with slow-roasted pork, mole coloradito sauce and black bean and pineapple relish.  LOCATION:  Tejas Express.  REVIEW:  7.5/10 $10 – More of a deconstructed tamale. A good one at that, bit steep on the price for this.  I’d probably pass if I were you, but good flavor  profile.

S'moresas MN State Fair

S’moresas: Marshmallow and chocolate fried in a crisp shell with chai dipping sauce. LOCATION: Hot Indian. REVIEW: 8/10 $6 – I’m diggin’ these. Wasn’t on the new item list that the Fair offered,  why??  Hey,  they are new this year.  Basic, but yummy.  Didn’t care much for the dipping sauce and rather of had another s’moresas! Everything on their menu is $6 and you only have until 8/29, because 8/30 they switch over to Rabbit Hole, which also has a new food item, guess I’ll be back.

Sonoran Sausage MN State Fair

Sonoran Sausage:  ONE.BAD.DOG:  Tex-Mex sausage stuffed with pepper jack cheese, wrapped in bacon, baked and served on a cornmeal-dusted bun with fresh corn salsa and a drizzle of avocado ranch sauce.  LOCATION:  Sausage Sister & Me.  REVIEW:  7/10 $7 – It’s a damn good dog with some damn good toppings…that bun though, overwhelming, and there’s a whole lot of it.

Spicy Thai Noodles MN State Fair

Spicy Thai Noodles:  Rice noodles and red curry with coconut milk served with kaffir lime, basil leaves, bell peppers, galangal, onions and tomatoes (Gluten-free).  LOCATION:  Oodles of Noodles.  REVIEW:  8/10 $10 (with chicken) – Nice freshly tossed bowl of Thai spiciness (also an 8/10), only complaint is that I wish they had used different noodles.

Sweet Corn Blueberry Eclair MN State Fair

Sweet Corn Blueberry Eclair:  Kernza® flour éclair filled with sweet corn pastry cream and topped with blueberry glaze.  LOCATION:  Farmers Union Coffee Shop.  REVIEW:  5.5/10 $6.50 – blueberry is fresh and packs a punch. The sweet corn you get right away and then it dissipates. Not bad, not good either…so in between.  On the fence with this one.

Sweety's Churros MN State Fair

Sweety’s Churros:  Sweet potato, cinnamon and nutmeg kneaded into a traditional churro dough, deep-fried and served with a side of chocolate or maple-brown sugar sauce or whipped cream.  LOCATION:  Potato Man and Sweety.  REVIEW:  3.5/10 $5 – Nothing special here, basic churros. At least you can get both sauces, which are both needed with these crunchy dry sticks.

Swine and Spuds MN State Fair

Swine & Spuds:  Bacon-wrapped pork belly and mashed potato croquettes served on a skewer and topped with a choice of homestyle gravy, Korean Bulgogi barbecue sauce or sweet chili sauce.  LOCATION:  Swine & Spuds.  REVIEW:  3/10 $8 (each) – Uneven portions. Non-photogenic. Sauces are very sweet, mix that with the very salty duo of pork and it’s pretty rough to like. Just doesn’t work very well. I got the sweet chili and the bulgogi sauces.  Nothing special here, move along.

Swing Dancer Sandwich MN State Fair

Swing Dancer Sandwich:  Honey smoked salmon, cucumbers, capers and cream cheese with fresh dill on pumpernickel, served with sliced lemon garnish.  LOCATION:  The Hideaway Speakeasy.  REVIEW:  8/10 $12 – I really like this sandwich, everything balances out and I would call this their star dish here…add kettle chips and it would’ve been a solid 9.

Triple Truffle Trotters MN State Fair

Triple Truffle Trotters:  Sliced peppers and bacon with black diamond truffle oil mayo on top of waffle fries.  LOCATION:  The Blue Barn.  REVIEW:  Sliced peppers and bacon with black diamond truffle oil mayo on top of waffle fries.  LOCATION:  The Blue Barn.  REVIEW:  9/10 $7.50 – The truffle profile is there, everything works, making it a near perfect dish.  More waffle fries, please!

Wild Bill's Breakfast Bake MN State Fair

Wild Bill’s Breakfast Bake:  Scrambled eggs, roasted chicken and chorizo sausage baked and topped with salsa and a mix of lettuce, pickled red onions and cilantro.  LOCATION:  The Blue Barn.  REVIEW:  Scrambled eggs, roasted chicken and chorizo sausage baked and topped with salsa and a mix of lettuce, pickled red onions and cilantro.  LOCATION:  The Blue Barn.  REVIEW:  6/10 $8.75 – It’s decent, It’s filling, has mild spice.  It comes off very dense since it’s packed inside of a tortilla, basically. A Mexican egg-bake, if you will.  On the fence with this one, let me know your thoughts if you end up trying this.
