Yesterday, I was pleasantly surprised to learn that it is Restaurant Week here in the Twin Cities. Cheap prices for some damn good food! My husband and I have gone to two different restaurants so far and we are so glad we have because even though these are restaurants that we have gone to before, we were able to try new things on their menu for a cheaper price.. but I would have gladly paid full price because I have been so impressed with both meals!
First, we went to Masu yesterday for lunch at the Mall of America location. Their lunch special was Tofu Yakisoba (score for this pescetarian!) and fried ice cream. O-M-G! It was literally one of the best meals I have ever had. I don’t know if it’s because it’s a meal that I have never ordered there before or what but I wanted to cry at the end of the meal because it was over! Ok not literally but you get what I’m saying. The Yakisoba was already great enough but the fried ice cream at the end just finished the meal perfectly! Ahhh.. makes me so hungry just thinking about it. If you are from the Twin Cities, definitely give this restaurant a try!
The next restaurant that we went to was Barbette . We went there today for lunch. This is a very nice French restaurant located in Uptown Mpls. YUM YUM YUM!
My husband had their boeuf bourguignon and I had their butternut squash and caramelized onion galette. And for dessert, we both got a small slice of pumpkin pie. Oh, and did I mention that this amazing meal was only $10 per person!? We are definitely fans of this place!
So if you live in the Twin Cities, check out if your favorite restaurants are having specials for Restaurant Week!
