Travel around the world without leaving Milwaukee
In the April edition of Milwaukee Magazine, Ann put together an "itinerary" of how to travel the world by fork through Milwaukee. Here are the three restaurants she picked:
We love Sze Chuan because it is one of the only places you can get authentic hot pot in Milwaukee. This soup cooked at the table is hot in temperature and in spice. The rest of the menu features foods from the Sichuan province in southwest China, but also has a wide range of other Chinese cuisine. This is a restaurant where it is easy to get creative and build your own meal too.
Holyland is well, the holy land of Middle Eastern cuisine in Milwaukee. It's a store that sells all the spices, meats and dry goods you need to make a meal at home and its small counter service restaurant has some of the best shawarma, falafel and baklava around.
Head to Indian Delight in Oak Creek for some delightful, fresh, affordable and meatless Indian food near Milwaukee. Try the thali, deep-fried samosas, chaats, pan-fried paratha and baked naan.
