Once again I have neglected the blog...oops. No excuses, I promise.
But I can make up for it by recommending an incredible restaurant that we went to on Saturday in Minneapolis. Found it by accident! We planned on eating elsewhere but the place just too loud for us so as we were standing outside THAT restaurant, my husband looked around the corner and this is what we found Victor's 1959 Cafe
You have to check this out, the food was awesome but even better, or equally better, the ambiance was so cool. The tables have oilcloth tablecloths on them in bright fun colors, the walls are written on by the patrons and it's NOT loud like that OTHER place were going to go to. And the service was very good as well.
I had the Mango Chicken sandwich with plantain chips (YUM!), KEA and my MIL had the Cuban Pork BBQ sandwich that came with plantain also but it was called something else, it's not fully ripened-yet plantain, and the birthday boy, my husband had the Cuban Hash - every meal was top notch.
For dessert I had the Cheesecake with Guava Sauce, my MIL had the Key Lime Pie and KEA and my husband both had the coconut ice cream (which came on a plate with the word CUBA in chocolate syrup and two palm trees in chocolate syrup decorating the plate). Very nice touches! I have to admit, we all were part of the clean plate club for this outing!
Okay, today is Super Bowl Sunday so I have to get some studying done so I can watch the game and get some knitting in.
