BYO-Low/No Corkage

Try Jerusalem. Also, Spasso in Minnetonka has an attached wine shop, buy a bottle there and no corkage.

Uncle Frankie serves a nice hot dog bun with dry poppy seed on top. What is the brand name and which stores (west side of Mpls) carry them? Thanks

Vietnamese buddy, but he hadn't tried it yet. I may not see him for a few weeks. A VN friend of his said it was good.

Siriouthay (Laotian in Shakopee)

Siriouthay is a new Laotian grocery store and deli/restaurant. There are a few tables for dining in. Owner was friendly and helpful. My chicken pad thai was very tasty, but I will have it a little spicier next time. The spring rolls were freshly made and my order had 3 (larger than normal) rolls. Some of their Laotian menu items are: lab, papaya salad, mok, gaeng nor mai and suop nor mai. They also serve pho and bahn mi. Located close to Canterbury Pk 5053 Dean Lakes Blvd in Shakopee. They are open 9am – 8pm. I’m looking forward to working my way thru the menu.

Italian Subs (Do not count Subway!)

My favorite is at Frankies Pizza in Wayzata. Perfect combo, and perfect ratios for my palate. Haven't tried the other Frankies.

need a MSP Pho update

#509 on the menu at Quang is a delicious alternative to traditional pho. A mix of meat and seafood and a crispy shrimp fritter served with side of basil and sprouts. A second broth served on the side but I just pour it in the bowl. Add a griiled sausage spring roll and you're set.

New Sri Lankan Restaurant - House of Curry in Rosemount

I had a great meal there last night. Papadam was serrved with a delightfully tangy mint sauce. Among other wine and beer options they offer 2 beers from Sri Lanka. The Lion Lager was one of the best beers I've ever had and was perfect with the entire meal. Rasam soup was delicious, an herb broth with cumin and celantro. My main was the devilled chicken. served with a great bowl of rice. The dish was spiced perfectly, perfectly cooked stir fry with tomatoes, onion, green and red pepper. It was not overly firey hot but the waiter assured me that they could do as hot as I wanted. Can't wait to return.

Sunday gravy help please

I use a very cheap cut of pork (like a pork steak with bones, brown, deglaze w red wine. Add to sauce and cook a long time (5 hrs or more). The pork ends up being melt in your mouth tender. If I'm having meatball &/or sausage I add them at the end. Season in steps as it simmer, taking care not to burn the bottom of the pan. Wish I owned a LeCreuset type of cooking pot.

Hot and sour soup

I go to Pho 83 regularly. Many Asian diners. I really like Quangs, Pho Tau Bay and Que Nha also. Pho 83 make a lemongrass chicken that I love. Grilled pork Bahn Mi is on a par with Quang and Pho Tau Bay. Just tried and loved their Peking Shrimp (they add a little broccoli at my request) (there are Chinese items on the menu. Their roast duck was also very good. A Vietnamese buddy says their grilled beef is excellent. Their Pho is very solid. I am trying to "force" myself to try other things they offer.

baking soda in water as meat tenderizer

tried an Am. Test Kitchen recipe that used Baking Soda in water as a meat tenderizer (rinse off meat and pat dry). Stir fry strips of boneless country ribs. Worked great. Can I use this technique for beef kabobs?
