I am openly weeping right now because I can’t marry a restaurant: the Left Handed Cook in
the Midtown Global Market in South Minnepolis. OPENLY. WEEPING.
Tiny little place, in the space where the much-missed “La Sirena Gorda” used to be (run by Alfonso Menendez, onetime owner of Babalu), this joint has a plateful of awesome called the “Harold & Kumar Poutine”. Fries slathered with pork belly curry, kimchi, poached egg, chipotle aioli and OH. MY. GOD. THE DELICIOUS, IT IS TOO MUCH.
I think I may have just shorted out my keyboard from the drool.
Go say hi to owners Kat Melgaard and Thomas Kim, and make a plan to return until you’ve worked your way through the entire menu, and then start over again.
AS SOON AS WE’RE DONE MAKING SURE SAME-SEX MARRIAGE IS AVAILABLE EVERYWHERE WE NEED TO START WORKING ON HOW TO LEGALLY MARRY A RESTAURANT. JOIN ME.
