Banh Mi + Pho in the same place?

I was going to say Pho Tao Bay, yes they are good. Grilled chicken or pork, extra meat.

Authentic Lasagna

"Authentic" just isn't as boldly flavored as Italian-American red sauce types. Bolognese is fairly delicate and most "authentic" recipes won't even have you brown the meat much.

Eat whatever tastes good to you, don't spend time worrying about authenticity.

edit: Hank Shaw's recipe is my go to for lasagna, though typically w/o the game as I am not a hunter.

Outstanding Soup

Most of the pho places if you get it to go, will have the solids separate.

Cupcake and Mason Jar In Eagan

I think they are asking about touch of love bakery from the post they are responding to.

Where to buy Demi glace?

Where are the donuts?

So Bogart Loves will soon have a shop, and will then be about the best place to regularly get donuts.

Didn't grab it but I saw duck bacon at surdyks, anyone ever try this?

Best Packaged Local Bacon in TC

Clancey's carries Fisher.

I prefer Prairie Pride Farm to any others (I've had all listed except this Lucky Pig), St. Paul Farmers market, I think they still carry it at the place in the global market.

If you wanna splurge, you could try the 'wild' boar bacon from Buffalo Gal, down by Rochester.

5 Cities in 5 Days - Food Tour

After ok Joe's I'd avoid ab's, Jack stack for the bbq short rib.

Here, to echo the above brasa is great but not only stop great.

Because if it were me ice cream or a bakery would also be party of every city I'd recommend Izzys here and glace in kc.

Where are the donuts?

Areed with Mel-o, Yoyo, and Cub. Not much mention of Angel Food but they are quite good as well, also the only place I know of doing 'cronuts'.

Glam Doll isn't worth it. Bakers Wife seemed to have slipped a little the last couple times I went.

A little harder to come by but Bogart Loves which were just sold every other weekend or so at the Kingfield Farmers Market were awesome, highly recommend making your way there next year.

I have bought both pork and beef blood from Shuang Hur, there and United Noodle will be your best bet. The other places mentioned aren't too likely, you need the right equipment to cool the blood pretty quickly after slaughter. If anyone is doing that locally Clancey's will likely know about it but don't get your hopes up.

Grass Fed Beef tripe, tendon and other offal?

Clanceys is probably your best bet.

Coconut Milk

Shung Hur or Dragon Star should carry Mae Ploy brand. Wont actually be much cheaper, but it is the best.

MSP Rotisseria Chicken-Man to resurface in Deephaven

what the article lists and what the jar lists, as well as what he himself at the fm said was in it are not the same. Idk if he suddenly changed the sauce but there is only green chilies and vinegar. that tartness may have come from mayo, quite a bit different than being vinegar based. this is not the sauce from the restaurant.

Glam doll Donuts

agreed with most of the above, very mediocre donuts. they seem to be focused on making the place a "scene" and not paying much attention to the quality of the product.

Di Noko's - Chicago Deep Dish Pizza

Grabbed one yesterday, it is pretty much as advertised. Really good pizza. Pep and ground beef, you can the thin layer of pep topped with about a half inch of cheese.
