Each week on This Bites, dining critic Ann Christenson from Milwaukee Magazine and Radio Milwaukee’s resident foodie Tarik Moody dig into the city’s culinary and restaurant culture to help you find new spots, old favorites and the best ingestibles around Milwaukee.

The food world loves experimentation. It’d be pretty boring without it, to be honest. So when Ann and I hear about something like the pop-up coming to Amorphic Beer this Saturday, we’re more than happy to give it some attention at the top of the podcast.

Chef Alex Hanesakda has taken his SapSap pop-up all over the area, and from 4 to 8 p.m. Saturday he’ll serve up his Ubon concept, which shares the name of the Thai refugee camp where he was born.

The abbreviated appearance will fuse Southeast Asian and American barbecue flavors in dishes that include Lao-style riblets with a hoisin, brown sugar and garlic marinade; smoked brisket fried rice; and Lao-style ribeye steak. Preorders are encouraged and can be submitted via the SapSap website. While you peruse the menu, you can listen to Ann and I chat about the area’s other food goings-on:

Ann and I are always open to talk about the culinary things happening around Milwaukee, so let us know what you’d like to hear by commenting on the This Bites post on Radio Milwaukee’s social media channels. You could also leave your suggestion while you review us on Spotify (and add to our stellar 4.8 score) or wherever you listen. Thanks.
