Foot-long hot dog
Butcher & the Boar (address and info)
Yeah, the long rib is good, and so are the pork chops, but we will never, EVER, get over the glory that is B&tB’s foot-long hot dog. It’s a house-made dog topped with a spicy chow-chow, crispy shoestring potatoes, mayo, mustard, and cilantro served on a brioche bun from Salty Tart. There is no better hot dog.

This perfectly cooked twisted pasta gets tossed with tender braised rabbit, artichokes, and crème fraiche and is an absolute joy to eat.

Seriously, you knew that this was coming. It’s one of Minnesota’s most iconic food items and that’s not by mistake.

If you haven't had these perfectly crispy fried potatoes -- served with confit asparagus, Spanish chorizo, roasted artichoke, pimenton/garlic sauce, and aioli -- yet, then… well, I guess we’re not really here to make threats, but you should probably go check them out because they’re pretty good.
