buffetbuster,

Great shots of some wonderful looking Twin Cities venues!  Never been to Cat-Man-Do, although we have been to Everest, another Nepali restaurant, this one located in St. Paul, just down the street from Tavern on Grand.

Wish Hell's Kitchen was open for dinner.  We rarely go out for breakfast when we're traveling on business, and we're always working during lunch.

I hope you got to Nye's Polonaise, and even more, hope you were able to get some reasonable pix in that dark-as-the-Batcave atmosphere.

Davydd,

Another mazel tov on your new grandson from the Roadhouse families!  He looks like a pretty good little scrapper.  So, once he's weaned from mother's milk, what comes first-a breaded pork tenderloin or a fried walleye sandwich?  Or maybe one of those giant pulled pork sandwiches over at Tonka Grill.

Whatever you decide, I hope you and the little guy will enjoy each other's company as much as we enjoy visiting with you and Nancy (who, although rarely mentioned on these boards, I'm sure is the proud Grandmama ).

Buddy

AHI MPLS-
Nicely done!  We could not figure out who it was from.  Since we announced in the forums that we were going to be at Hell's Kitchen, we figured it could have been anybody.  How did she recognize our party?
 
Buddy-
Does this answer your question of if we made it to Nye's or not?

That looks like a truly dangerous polka band.  Dawn, nice work on the secret ops.  ;)

Davydd, that rates a big old 'awwwww'.

Looking forward to the Nye's review and photos.  Looks like you had a fine time in The Cities.  How many different Jucy Lucys did you wrap your chompers around?

 Hee-Hee!  You know the Seinfeld where they're trying to meet up at the movie?  Elaine was described as having "A big wall of hair and a face like a frying pan "  I went thru a minute or two of that-Nothing Mean!!!-  then { DUH! } mentioned the foto-frenzy     it was a dead giveaway....

Here are some of the plates from Cat-Man-Do



Buffetbuster had a totally liquid meal






Goat Momo. You could also get pork and chicken.

Oh my that looks good!  The soup looks like Lahksa Lemak (sp?)

And the other dishes look Indian except for the Momo.

Is it fusion cuisine or just dishes from surrounding countries?

wanderingjew, The anticipation intermission discussion is over. We're back to some serious reporting.

First, I should report we roadfooders had the honorary gift exchange. Ayersian brought fresh pork tenderloins straight from Iowa for Buffetbuster and me. I had mine for lunch and took the time to experiment with white balance settings on my kitchen counter north light. I went through all the settings to see which one worked best. This white balance was the outdoor shade setting.



Finding the right setting at Al's Breakfast to shoot without flash was difficult. One only wished they had more time to experiment but the lighting was fairly dark and diffuse with incadescent, LED and flourescent shooting out from the back room. The best thing you can hope for is a daytime visit sitting next to a window to get the best shots.

Anyway, my gift to Buffetbuster and the Ayersians was Pearson's nut candie bars. They are a St. Paul product. I think there might be an old Roadfood.com discussion about them. I thought about 25 CDs but heard that was not appropriate.



And last but not least, Grandson Jonah Hippert Stovall arrived this morning at 7:19 AM in La Crosse, WI. He will be the first born true cheesehead roadfooder in our family.



I will be heading for La Crosse tomorrow morning.


Pearson's Nut Goodies!!! Never to my liking as I don't care for the maple syrup flavor.  But, my Dad gets a basket of those every year for Christmas.  Congratulations on the baby.

While all the food looks great, and while everyone looks like they are having a ball, the baby stole the show...Congrats!

Okay, which one of us has a face like a frying pan?

The canopy marque did say "Fusion of Nepali, Tibetan and Indian Cuisine". You guessed right. The goat momo was Tibetan.
