Congrats to Golden Gate Restaurant

Golden Gate Restaurant in Waukesha, Wis., has again been named one of the top 10 Chinese restaurants in the country.

Congrats on the achievement! The awards were handed out Jan. 10 in San Francisco and were hosted by celebrity chef Martin Yan (love him!), chef Theresa Cheng and San Fran Mayor Edwin Lee.

Read the full story from Fox 6 Now.

Golden Gate has some of the best crab rangoons in the Milwaukee area – full of crab and a little peppery. Their pressed duck is also a special treat, and it won’t break your wallet. They also have a great Friday Fish Fry that puts an Asian twist on a Milwaukee fave.

Can’t wait to come back and enjoy!

Goodbye Milwaukee

Boston skylineIt’s with great sadness, but with a flurry of excitement, that I have to write this post. I have accepted a new job in the Boston metro area, which means that after spending most of my life in Milwaukee, I will be leaving.

When my husband asked me last week, “What will you miss the most about Milwaukee?,” I hesitated. Obviously, I’m going to miss my family and friends. But then the answer quickly turned into a laundry list of food places.

I must apologize that with this move – there may be a little lag between posts. I’m doing my best to write posts in advance but it’s been a little hectic. Hopefully, I won’t be without high-speed access for long in the new digs.

10. The Klement’s Sausage Race at Miller Park

The Sausage Race at Miller ParkWhile I am gaining the Boston Red Sox and Fenway Park in the move, no other MLB team can say that they have Racing Sausages. I have a deep place in my heart for Guido, Stosh, Brett Wurst, Cinco and Frankie Furter. When I first moved back to Milwaukee after grad school, I had the great privilege of being a racing sausage…once. It was a horrifying experience that ended up on ESPN’s “Sportscenter.” (I had also been a sausage that went to greet people in the parking lot, but that also ended poorly.) However, it is also a cherished memory that very few can say they have had.
