happy monday peeps!
i feel like i should have better name for these posts. i mean “mke eats” is pretty cut and dry as to what i will be blogging about butttttttt if anyone can think of something flashier, let me know!
well the highlight of my week when it comes to food was, my FAVORITE food truck was back at burnhearts (its a bar right by my house). i love foxfire a little too much, its my favorite food truck in milwaukee!
this weeks eats and drinks:
- foxfire food truck
- puddlers hall
- foxfires “gas station” sandwich from the mothership
- the vanguard
i literally could eat their fried chicken sandwich every single day. and im not kidding. i am so happy this is the food truck that is so close to my house once its spring/summer. the owners are great and so personable. last week was the first time foxfire was back near my house. so i knew right away i needed to get dinner there. their menu does change here and there but they always have their fried chicken! although, last week , they had a new version on the fried chicken called: the baller. annnnnd it was just as amazing as their normal fried chicken. this one had their signature spicy fried chicken on it, pickles, spicy mayo, slaw and american cheese. yeah, do i need to say anymore? i would recommend following them on IG because they are always updating their IG as to where they will be next.
nick and i have been waiting to go here for the longest time. so finally, last friday, i said we were going and we went! the restaurant itself is so cute, there is so much character. we started off with getting come craft cocktails, nick got their “call it a night”, their award winning manhattan and i got their “wood dog” which was different (in a good way!!!) because it had raspberry syrup in it. i would say it was almost like an old fashioned but a little sweeter. now, since i LOVE almost all seafood now, i got their spicy crab pasta and oh my god!! the noodles were light and fresh and the overall taste was to die for! one part i really enjoyed was the dish included
soppressata (italian dry salami) which made it a little spicy and gave it just that kick of salt to finish the dish. if you want to know what nick got, he went with their berkshire pork chop and he loved it. i tried it too and it passed the test 😉
this is a local bar that weve been wanting to try ever since we moved to bayview. this bar is one of the oldest in milwaukee. nick and i stopped here for a drink after goodkind and i enjoyed it. i really liked how its not your “modern day bar”. the walls in the bar, im sure, have a lot of stories! this place is great for just grabbing a drink or to stay for a game or two of ping pong.
foxfires gas station sandwich:
okay, we did stop into mothership for a few drinks on saturday night. but i have had my eye on foxfires sandwiches they have there. i ended up going with their hot fried chicken salad sandwich(duh!) and i literally shouldve gotten two. this sandwich is as good as their hot fried chicken sandwich from their food truck. i loved how this sandwich was just like ones you would see in a gas station. it had the thick white bread and everything. ugh now i want another one just talking about it!
now now, i have talked about this place before on my blog post from february. but this place is so close to our house that we end up going here a lot more than other places. this time around, i stuck with that i knew best. a hot dog, seattle style (cream cheese, onion and shredded cheddar cheese), mashed potato balls and fries. all three of those are my go tos!
all this fried chicken talk, i want fried chicken now 😉
i hope everyone has a good week of eating!
