The Chicago Tribune has presented a list of 12 particularly memorable things to eat in Milwaukee, their neighbor about an hour-and-a-half to the north. You’ll find a mix of new discoveries and old classics, like the butterburgers at Solly’s Grille, which the Tribune calls silky (?) and butter-soaked (for sure). These burgers are near the top of our Milwaukee list as well. They also fell in love with Parmesan tomato soup with cheddar grilled cheese on sourdough at Benji’s Deli, which we know as our source for hoppel-poppel. We’ve tackled the famous Mader pork shank and agree: don’t miss it! Dessert? Leon’s tin roof sundae.
Most of the remainder of the list strikes a more modern tone – you’ll find seaweed chips, roasted broccoli, and burnt ginger tofu, for instance (those are three separate dishes although, come to think of it, there might be some restaurant-hopping mashup potential here). Oh, yeah, and beer. Always beer. Read the full story here.
