Twin Cities: Minnesota: Oklahoma some questions/ recommendations

Mike Larke | Dec 12, 2001 10:31 AM

Question 1) Is Sri Lanka Curry House a) in business/out of business b) still serving the REALLY hot stuff? Have heard various rumors closed/new management etc. (I live in Oklahoma but am visiting soon: still remember one of their "hot" (could not handle xtra hot) entrees.)

Question 2) Tried once to locate aviation=themed restaurant somehwere near Flying Cloud Airport in Eden Prairie but could not find it. Is it still in business & does anyone know the place I am going on about?

Question 3) Am maniac for good pickled herring. Anywhere in TC's noted for it as appetizer etc.?

Recommendation: Being from UK I revisit TC's primarily to drink Bishops Bitter at Sherlock's Home in Minnetonka. Any Brit's not aware of its existence & within 600 miles need to head there. It's REAL real ale. All British ingredients except the H20. Not standard brewpub (murky-sop) product. Served cellar temp. Imperial pints. Good food there too (Brit).

Recommendation: Ponca City Oklahoma. The little Ponca City (NW of Tulsa) airport has the best hand-made Mexican you'll find in Oklahoma~not necessarily a stellar claim . . . but it's good-Family run-"Real" food. A plus: a no-compromise table salsa that's deep brown & ANYTHING but standard. Packs a punch. "Enrique's" is the name. Fun plane watching too. (Pilots fly in from all over to eat there: restaurant is right in the terminal.)

Thanks for any replies. Hope some rec's may be of interest in return.

All the best.
