Grandparent Scoutin’

4 10 2011

Nice weekend with the folks in Wisconsin.  Got the top fully secured for the winter and poked around under the hood for a while.  We may play with the throttle later this evening.

Had an afternoon lunch with pops in the Scout.  If you’ve never had a Solly’s butter berger… start training now.  Loose 10 pounds and then go pig out.  Good stuff.  Just don’t ask for pickles.

Hey look, this is my first post about the Scout AND food in Milwaukee.  Brain – Melted.

Huê is Grêat

17 08 2011

I’ve lived in Milwaukee for over 4 years now, but I still can’t keep my Bay Views, Bayvilles,  Bay Sides and Bay Whatevers straight.  So let’s just say that Lora and I found a gem of a restaruant on the South Side of Milwaukee last night.  It’s called huê Vietnamese inspired cuisine.

Yes, the H is lower case and the E is actually suppost to have both a Circumflex (ê) AND an Acute (é) over the top, but they don’t make that letter in any font or other language that I’m aware of.  Other than the odd spelling and my lack of knowledge in local geography – I liked EVERYTHING about this place.  Here’s a quick list:

  1. The food was just as unique as the name
    – amazing spring rolls called Gỏi Cuốn… hey wait, that O has the circumflex and acute.  Everything is starting to make sense.
    – a pork dish called Bún Nem Nướn. Don’t look at that letter O too closely.  What is that, an acute and a horn?  None the less… Delicious. I won’t be sharing mine with Spencer next time.  I’ll get my own.
  2. Tuesday was $2 Tall Boy nights.  Mmmm… Schlitz.
  3. This is the best part – it was packed.  On a Tuesday night. I like PACKED restaurants.  The longer you have to wait for a table – the better the food is going to be.  That’s the truth.

Seoul Korean BBQ

24 05 2011

Finally… some non International Scout content!

I used to have a Milwaukee food blog.  It was a lot of fun to put together and IMOHO very accurate and informative.  In fact, maybe a little too accurate.  I really burned a couple of restaurants for their bad food and/or bad decor and ambiance.  Soon after I compared a local Thai food restaurant to a bad 80’s night club, complete with WHAM! music and disgusting bathrooms that just screamed Hepatitis B… my site was taken down.  Hmm…. I wonder why?

So now, in the interest of self preservation, I’ll still keep things honest and informative, but I’ll only blog about the GOOD restaurants.   Currently topping the list – Seoul Korean BBQ.

Korean Yumminess

If you haven’t been to Seoul Korean for the lunch buffet yet – stop what you are doing and go start the car.  It’s ridiculous.  The food is amazing.  The variety is amazing.  And did I mention that the food is AMAZING?

Typically, I can’t handle the real spicy items, but their spicy pork is the stuff that dreams are made of.  I know it’s going to hurt… but I just keep going back for more.

Seoul Korean is very unassuming in both decor and location.  You wouldn’t even know its there if you weren’t paying attention as you race down Prospect Ave.  But now you know.  Go.

Keep up the good work Seoul Korean
