Recently, I traveled to Minneapolis. Even though it was a brief visit, I fell in love with this city. Here were some of my favorite bites.
Psycho Suzi’s Motor Lounge-Tiki Drinks
How can anyone not like a Tiki Bar? Psycho Suzi’s was a fun place to hang out. People were nice and it was fun to talk with the locals. It was a beautiful night to sit on the patio which has a great view of the Mississippi River and sip a tropical concoction out of a kitschy, ceramic container.
Don’t forget to visit its sister place, Betty Danger for a ferris wheel ride and a round of putt-putt.
Brasa-Roasted Pork Platter
I always say that when you travel, it pays to talk to locals and ask them where they like to go eat. You get to try something that is a favorite that is not for tourists. While sitting and enjoying our drinks at Psycho Suzi’s, we struck up a conversation with the couple sitting next to us. They suggested that we go to Brasa. We enjoyed this delicious meal. The slow roasted pork was tender and the side of pink beans and yellow rice, a typical Caribbean inspired dish, was yummy.
Izzy’s Ice Cream
This is one of the best ice creams places I have ever tried. Again, thanks to a local that suggested it, Izzy’s is worth a trip. I love all the unusual ice cream flavors. Mine was ginger ice cream, passionfruit sorbet and topped with their “Izzy scoop”; a smaller bonus scoop of your choice. Mine was a scoop of grapefruit sorbet, passionfruit sorbet and ginger ice cream. Refreshing! Nice treat after walking around and seeing this beautiful city.
