Each week on Radio Milwaukee, Milwaukee Magazine dining critic Ann Christenson and 88Nine’s resident foodie Tarik Moody discuss Milwaukee’s culinary and restaurant culture on This Bites.

On this week’s episode, we have a special treat for you: an interview with Alexa Alfaro of Meat on the Street and Adam Pawlak of Egg & Flour. They tell us about their upcoming collaboration taking place Wednesday, May 19, at Egg & Flour’s Bay View location. They also tease the menu and share the secrets of making pasta and Asian cuisine work together.

We also talk to Alexa about the upcoming inaugural Milwaukee Asian Restaurant Week, which runs May 16-22. You can find the complete (and huge) list of participating restaurants here. It includes restaurants from all over Southeastern Wisconsin. Alexa says the organizers are encouraging food lovers to check out restaurants they’ve never been to before.

In other news, there’s a new soul food and barbecue restaurant at 2730 N. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Drive that just opened. It’s called Q and was opened by the owner of Ashley’s Bar-B-Q (1501 N. Center St.). It’s a pretty interesting restaurant in that it’s not specifically devoted to barbecue.

“The dinner menu includes a couple of BBQ dishes (brisket and pork shoulder, both served with two sides and cornbread), alfredo pasta, pork chops served smothered, grilled or Southern fried, boneless chicken prepared similarly to the pork chops, as well as shrimp and lobster mac, salmon croquettes, shrimp and grits and pan-fried catfish,” Ann reports.

We also share some news about a new grocery story on North Avenue called Greater Goods MKE.

Hear us talk about it all on this week’s episode below.
