A Taste of Minneapolis: Red Cow
It was recently my brother’s graduation from Carleton College, so the whole fam headed to Minnesota for the festivities. It was pretty unappealing weather as it basically thunder stormed all weekend (something I’m not used to here in sunny Los Angeles), but we were able to catch one perfect afternoon eating lunch on an outdoor patio. The restaurant of choice: Red Cow. Red Cow is a gourmet burger joint, with award-winning concoctions. I will warn you, however, that while delicious, this place is heart attack heaven. Everything we ordered was very greasy, but I think it was worth it for one meal.
The thing I loved most were the original burger combinations and the homemade sauces. We ordered an appetizer of Wisconsin Cheese Curds, my sister’s favorite (she’s a Badger so she was happy to be in the Midwest for the weekend), and it came with a homemade triple berry ketchup. It was a very unique flavor, but extremely delicious. The smoked pepper aioli that comes with the sweet potato fries is equally amazing. The turkey burger that my sister ordered was also right up my alley; it had chunks of fresh avocado pounded into the burger itself. This place is perfect for a warm summer Minneapolis day on the patio.
