its monday, its monday! i know some of you are like “omg stoppppppp” and the other half of you are like “yaasssss girl, new week!”. well how ever you are, you already know what today is….MKE FOOD DAY!
lets get right into this.
here are this weeks eats & drinks:
i never knew what an arepa was until i went to boston. both nick and i were so hungry that we didnt care what we ate. well, we ended up ordering arepas and omgggg they were everything i ever wanted. who doesnt like cheese and cornbread? since that trip, i havent had an arepa since but nick discover pedros. its a south american food cart that offer arepas and tacos. well, of course i got a veggie arepa and it was AMAZING! a million times better than the one i had in boston. pedros had a good sweetness to their cornbeard, it was topped with black beans, cream, onions and so much more. oh and the inside was filled with cheese. we also got their street corn and that was just as good. street corns been my thing lately and whenever i see it, i have to get it! along with my corn and arepa, i had a few beers from good city brewing. i got the leo beer and it was really crisp with a little bit of a hoppy taste but nothing crazy. AND the whole reason why even where able to get pedros is because the urban ecology center hosted “bike and bite“. so right outside of the ecology center, they had music, food, drinks and bikes. all said and done, it was a 14 miles round trip bike ride for us!
i never was at their old site but their new site is awesome. i love all of their open space, plants and rustic/farmhouse feels. their beer is also awesome too, i had their cream city brix and loved it. it was on the lighter side but overall had great creamy flavor. and the reason why we stopped here was because… (see below)
mixconsin was having an event to try out their canned craft cocktails. i have been following mixconsin on IG for awhile now and have been really interested in what they were up too. then about a month ago, they announced they were hosting an event at enlightened to try out their crafted canned cocktails. so i knew it was a must to go! naturally, i only tried their old fashioned because hello, that is one of my fav drinks. i tired both their brandy and whiskey old fashioned and i would say that i liked the brandy over the whiskey. normally, i am not a fan of pre-made drinks but i really liked theirs! they tasted fresh for being in a can and they didnt leave me feel gross after i had tried them.
you guys, if i could i would eat here all the time. i have talked about this place here. but i always end up getting their bigger mac, which is just like a big mac but a million times better! and we did get their wings, which i LOVE but i was too busy eating them to get a picture, i mean…can you blame me? oh, you have to get their house chips too, i am sucker for chips and theirs are perfect!
have a good everyone and ill see you here next monday!!
