Authentic, fresh or innovative Mexican food?

Aurelias in Eden Prairie is fantastic. Get the Torta. Specifically the Al Pastor. Man alive, its HUGE. Its a husband and wife. He runs the front and she cooks. Tacos are excellent as well. You should go there now. You won't be sorry.

Best Reuben you've had in the Twin Cities?

My fave is the Black Forest Inn. Good amount of corned beef. Crispy grilled bread. Lots of sauce. Oh and a big a$$ Hacker Pschorr Dark on tap makes it a great meal.

They use a lot of olive oil when they make it. They literally drizzle it all over. The trick is to ask for less/light olive oil and you will be much happier.

Best Bakery -- not refined, not French, just good donuts

Yeah, I was mad at the whole situation in general and must finally admit that I was at the Donut Co-op earlier and ran into the same situation so I thought I would try my luck at Mojo.....Duhhhh! They still could of told us there weren't any donuts to speak of though... Anyway, with the lack of donut shops I am/was eager to get some good donuts when I've heard so much about them. Lesson learned and I am sure that I will go again if in the area.

My daughter and I went to Mojo Monkey on a Saturday morning....what a disaster. We get there and there is a line out the door. No big deal, I promised her a donut. So we wait, and wait and wait for about 30 minutes. Finally we get inside and all they have is 3 donuts! Cake, Cinnamon Sugar Cake and Glazed Raised. The menu lists well over 20 donuts, if not 30. If they can't keep up with the demand let us know! A sign or something would be nice. Maybe tell the 20 people waiting that they have 1/20th the donuts you've heard about. Beignets? Forget about it. Maple donut? Never. Mojo Monkey needs to get it together. Hire some help. Make more donuts and if you can't, let us know. FYI we really enjoyed our hard earned Glazed donut. Slight crispy outside but very tender insides. It's just not worth waiting for....

Reuben sandwich - searching for "The One"

I would have to say the Black Forest on eat street. Definitely get some Hacker Pschorr Dark to go with it.
