This Bites: Dumplings in Walker’s Point, Eggs with Uncle Wolfie

New places we’re talking about, meals we’re eating, Malort we’re drinking — or not drinking.

This Bites (on 88Nine Radio Milwaukee) is getting ready to chow down on holiday sweets and savories, but there are other things we need to attend to first. Developments! Our city is welcoming a new food hall near the Oriental Theatre, open now, and a much-larger hall, with 20-some vendors coming down the pike in 2019.

Among the vendors headed for 3rd Street Market Hall are Donut Monster, Milk Can (serving burgers, cheese curds and frozen custard) and Char’d (whose full-service Third Ward Korean restaurant just opened earlier this year). 

My co-host Tarik Moody is always on the lookout for soup dumplings, and he found a new place that’s giving him hope. It’s called Momo Mee, on First and Greenfield, and Tarik talks a bit about the menu.

Uncle Wolfie is a name you will likely hear more this winter. Wolfgang Schaefer is the co-owner and with his wife Whitney (who operates the adjacent shop Orange and Blue), they’ve created a singular dining and shopping concept. Learn more about it.
