This Bites: 3 Spots for International Cuisine

The culinary podcast featuring 88Nine’s Tarik Moody and MilMag’s Ann Christenson talking about all things dining-related.

This week, the dining podcast The Bites (on 88Nine Radio Milwaukee) picks up a thread from the April issue of Milwaukee Magazine, on three incredibly good places in the area to satisfy the taste for something different. First up in Sze Chuan, a Chinese restaurant in West Allis that specializes in the cuisine of Sichuan Province. Think spicy Sichuan pork dumplings and hot pot.

Next, we talk about the vegetarian-focused Indian Delight in Oak Creek, where you absolutely need to try the samosas.

And completing the triad is the Middle Eastern grocery store Holyland, which has a little on-site restaurant serving falafel, shawarma and more. 

The nonprofit Teens Grow Greens, which is helping build the leaders of tomorrow with its urban agriculture-based programs, is holding its annual Chef’s Dinner: Cooking for a Cause at the end of May. May 31, to be precise. It will be held at the Ivy House in Walker’s Point. Mark your calendar for that.

And whew, the Milwaukee Brewers started their 2019 baseball season, which means hot summer nights (to come), tailgating and plenty of stadium food. We talk about some of the new things you can eat at Miller Park – things that may or may not be intriguing enough to pull you away from watching Christian Yelich. 

Listen to “March 29th – Szechuan, Teens Grow Greens, New Foods at Miller Park” on Spreaker.



Ann Christenson has covered dining for Milwaukee Magazine since 1997. She was raised on a diet of casseroles that started with a pound of ground beef and a can of Campbell's soup. Feel free to share any casserole recipes with her.
