Ben on Sushi Hut

Sushi Hut/Osaka House has been closed for a couple of years now. It is now an improved noodle shop called Chen's Dumpling House.

You won’t find a better Breakfast for less. My husband loves says their Walleye is the best he’s ever had, & the Rum Chata French Toast is fabulous!

Eric on Taqueria El Jalapeño

Their tacos de lengua are the best in town, even surpassing Guadalajara's, IMHO. They're well-seasoned, and they manage to stay both meaty and tender without getting that sort of gelatinous texture that lengua often gets after a long stew.

I would never have expected to find that one of my favorite dishes in town is tongue-based, but here we are.

The only reason I read this site is to count ham sandwiches, food of the apocalypse, nectar of those who will survive the turmoil.

The mixed grill does indeed look delicious, but my eye is also drawn to the interesting booklet or sheet behind the dish. Looks a bit standardized-testish.

Lamentably, Minerva closed a while ago.

Nice to see that they're willing to change up the menu. We thought the new dishes (especially their banchan) were spectacular. Who knew small bits of potato in a soothing chicken broth could be that good?

EmKay on Sugar and Spice Eatery

What? You didn’t have the Tater Tot Hotdish?!? For shame! But guess you have a reason to go back now as this is the only place I know of outside of my beloved Minnesota to get a plateful of that delicacy.

MadPipps on Bahn Thai

Just ate there for lunch and couldn't be happier. The curries were top-notch, and the variations on a sweet & sour were excellent. Some of the best spring rolls we've had in years. Slower, relaxed service, but will go again.

Chris Mildebrandt on Book excerpt: Ella's Deli

We just had our own neighborhood staple close recently as well.

It's sad to see these gems disappear.

I don't understand your categories. Should the second Double-A's be Single-A's?

Eun Sol Yu was the original owner with her dad, Young Yu. Hence "Sol's."

(Giggling at this: JM couldn't bring himself to chow down on seaweed because, well, he just doesn't like it. :-))
