Minneapolis-St. Paul Dish of the Month (Nov 2012) Nominations

It's time to choose a Dish of the Month for Minneapolis/St. Paul for November 2012

The idea is this: choose a 'Dish of the Month' for the Twin Cities and then collectively try as many versions of this dish as possible, reporting back with details and photos. It's great to talk about places you've been in the past, but the idea is to explore new places and make new discoveries.

The dish that gets chosen might be something very specific (minestrone soup, xiao long bao) but might also be more of a dish category (stuffed pasta dishes, Asian fried chicken). It's up to the users on this board, but it probably makes sense to choose something that locals are excited about trying and finding the best versions! The first month (pho) went very well in Minneapolis, and hopefully this success can continue. In SF, this project has inspired some Chowhound meet-ups, so hopefully that could happen in MN too.

This is the nomination thread for November 2012…you can nominate as many dishes as you want, but once we do the voting thread (which will start on October 29), it will be one vote per user.

To nominate a dish, post it in ALL CAPS in the responses below. This thread will be open until October 29th.

Let the nominations begin!

  1. I will re-nominate CHILI and SPRING ROLLS since they both came up last time. I think either of these would be great.

    I'll leave the voting up to people who actually eat and live in Minneapolis/St. Paul. But remember, there's no limit to how many things you can nominate!

              Who in the Cities is making it? I make it but also enjoy eating others

                Cassoulet sounds so good right now! I know both Meritage and Heartland have had it in the past. I'm sure there are other places... Surely Vincent, and apparently the Dakota. And Heidi's

                P.S. this is not an official nomination because I don't expect to have much dining out time in Nov, alas.


                1. re: The Dairy Queen

                  I have not seen it on anyone's Menu that is why I asked.

                  1. re: ibew292

                    Perhaps it's too early in the season for cassoulet?


                    1. re: ibew292

                      Meritage seems to have a petit one it it's lunch menu for now. Don't see it on the dinner menu though, which is odd.

                      Don't see it on the Dakota's or Heidi's or Heartland's though that one changes constantly. Can't open Vincent's website right now.

                        On to St. Paul for lunch. I missed that, I was only looking at Dinner menus.
