We’re rich in great local grocery stores: Kowalski’s, Lund’s & Byerly’s and co-ops, too—like The Wedge, Seward, Linden Hills and Lakewinds. Not to mention all the fantastic specialty and international stores like Coastal Seafoods, Bill’s Imported Foods, Cosetta’s and Holy Land Deli.

I love that there are so many places in The Cities to eat well and to expand your palate. I am thrilled to live in Frogtown where I am within walking distance of many places I love​, and am​ no more than a ​5​​-​minute car ride from some of my other favorite spots in the Old Rondo neighborhood and the Midway. Frogtown has several great Asian grocery stores: I like going to Dragon Star Oriental Foods on W. Minnehaha and the Little Me​kong​ Farmers market on Sundays. ​There is s​uch good food​ really close by:​ Cheng Heng Cambodian Restaurant on University is awesome. My happy place is Golden Thyme, ​the ​coffee shop on Selby​ Avenue​;​ they make a mean southern breakfast, grits and all. In the ​M​idway, ON’s Thai on University is to die for and Fasika’s Ethiopian on Snelling Ave​nue​ is delicious.

Some of my favorite places to experience life-changing culinary experiences are on Nicollet in what is known as the “Eat Street” district of Minneapolis. The restaurants are diverse, unique, and authentic. The variety of cultural supermarkets offer amazingly fresh ingredients at a fraction of the cost found in your big box retail stores. With over 2 miles of shops, markets, restaurants, and bars there’s no shortage of options and anyone can find a place that fits their mood and preferences.

Midtown Global Market is one of my favorite places in the city. You could pull off an entire taco crawl in one fell swoop, but the building also has some of my favorite Indian, East African, Middle Eastern, Korean…the list goes on. There’s even a craft cocktail bar and brewery to settle into with your food. Entrepreneurs use the market as a jumping off point for new concepts, so it’s a great spot to see how tastes are changing and maybe get inspired yourself. (I’ve yet to stay for a Kitchen in the Market cooking class, but let me know if you want to give it a try.)
