I recently took a trip to Minnesota to visit my wonderful dietitian friend, Doha and her husband, Mo and to check out the food scene. If I'm being honest, I didn't expect to find much beyond a seven layer casserole out there in the midwest, but after a quick Google search on the top restaurants in Minneapolis and St. Paul my stomach was already growling. Four days spent in the Land of 10,000 Lakes I ate my fair share of hash browns, but I left with my belly full and tastebuds satisfied by far more sophisticated foods than expected. I also got a few lessons in food history and spotted some food themed art while I was there. All and all Minnesota surpassed my expectations and I won't hesitate to go back.
In order to catch my 7am flight I was up at 3am and out the door at 4am. When I landed in St.Paul around 9:00 all I had had was a terrible, cup of airplane coffee. Needless to say I was HUNGRY. First stop, Al's Breakfast in Dinkytown for...eggs and hash browns.
