Comfort food is hard to beat. It’s just so... comforting. And in the Twin Cities, there are several places serving unique spins on a few of our favorite standards. Whether it's fancying up mac & cheese, spicing up fried chicken with a "poultrygeist" sauce -- which may be as terrifying to taste as it is to say -- or giving patrons the standard (but wonderful) fish & chips they've grown to love over the years, our souls and stomachs will forever be filled because of these takes on comfort food. We hope you have plenty of napkins.
Fish & chips
Anchor Fish & Chips (address and info)
It's hard to beat an order of flakey golden fried wild caught Alaskan cod and crispy, salty fries on a cold rainy spring day (or maybe any day at all). In Minneapolis, no one does that better than this Northeast chippery, Anchor Fish & Chips. (Really, the name of the dish is in the restaurant's title.) The meal is simple, sure, but honestly, sometimes that's all you need. Add in the tartar sauce and now you're meal is pretty damn comfortable.
