I thought I was a "food snob" until I met my boyfriend...WOW! We both enjoy authentic, ethnic food and are looking for restaurants to try in the Twin Cities area. We are not afraid of "dive" restaurants or "off the beaten path" locations. Heck, we're dying to check out the Vietnamese flea market mentioned in a recent issue of MN Monthly.
I am searching for these places as date ideas and, hopefully, one unbelievable place to celebrate his birthday (This one can be located outside of the metro area and, hopefully, include a weekend getaway of some sort...We're very active and outdoorsy.) We are not "meat and potatoes" type of people...BORING and we can make it as good, if not better, at home. I'm talking about SPICY food, ethnic food, authentic food from near and far...Mexico, Thailand, The Philippines, Greece, Morocco, Spain, Ethiopia, etc., etc.
We're, also, seeking UNBELIEVABLE bakeries in Western WI and the East Metro area (VERY picky, as I once was a pastry chef.)
Since times our tough, we'd love to find affordable restaurants, too. Is this search doomed for failure or can you, foodies, help us in our quest? THANKS:-)
