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.

Among the greatest culinary innovations in recent history is the food truck. It’s more accessible — both to the eater and the aspiring restaurateur who isn’t quite ready for brick and mortar — and in most cases doesn’t sacrifice quality.

While the first food truck was likely a chuck wagon or perhaps the Wienermobile, you could argue that it didn’t reach its ideal form until tacos got involved. We’ve got plenty of that variety around Milwaukee, all of which you can follow on social media to keep up with their whereabouts. Ann and I talk about a few of our favorites at the top of this episode, but here’s a handy list so you can figure out where to find them while you listen to our chat:

For even more, check out the taco truck guide in the latest issue of Milwaukee Magazine. Now, on to the Dan-heavy roundup of other culinary news around Milwaukee:

  • First up, the James Beard Awards were finally handed out earlier this week, and sadly neither Dan Jacobs nor Dan Van Rite went home with hardware.
  • Dan Jacobs did, however, make it to Top Chef’s first finale episode (feels like that shouldn’t be a thing), which left Wisconsin for sunny Curaçao.
  • And if that doesn’t have you Dan’d out, Mr. Jacobs also landed the cover story for the June edition of Milwaukee Magazine.
  • In non-Dan news, the Wolf on Broadway has decided to rebrand and become Uncle Wolfie’s Dinner Diner.

We’ll remain This Bites for the foreseeable future, although I guess you never know what tomorrow may bring. Today, you can listen to the podcast using the player on this page and maybe say some nice things about us on social media or your preferred podcast platform. Thanks.
