Short Orders

When it comes to local Mexican dining, vegetarians are usually out of luck. Options typically consist of a cheese quesadilla and possibly a cheese chimichanga. Even most bean items are out because they might be cooked with lard. An exception to this vegetarian dilemma can be found on the menu at...

Short Orders

There is an interesting, eco-friendly shop in Bay View named Future Green (2352 S. Kinnickinnic Ave.). Though it’s not large, it has a wide choice of organic clothing, hand-woven fabrics and organic cleaning supplies. There is even a biodegradable paint stripper. Wander to the back of the shop and you will discover Café Tarragon...

Despite the name, when you enter Lucky Liu’s you feel as if you have entered a small Japanese restaurant. It is an attractive place with a spare decor, wooden floors, simple tables and a four-seat sushi bar. Then the menu arrives and it is an even divide between things Japanese...

Don’t miss Tres Magueyes

With its corner-bar appearance in a neighborhood filled with Mexican eateries, it would be easy to overlook Tres Magueyes. Even the inside looks more like a corner tap than a restaurant. The first room is dark, with a large bar, television set, CD jukebox and a row of strictly-for-entertainment-purposes gaming machines.

A Sweet Deal

Bombay Sweets has two unlikely locations, one in a Brookfield strip mall (19555 W. Bluemound Road) and the original at 3401 S. 13th St. As the name suggests, the cooking is East Indian, but in this case everything is vegetarian. The setting is modest—you order at the counter and help yourself to plastic flatware...

South Woods’ timeless fare

Situated east of Mitchell International Airport in an area of low-rise office buildings, South Woods restaurant occupies a very unlikely location. The patch of mature trees lining its driveway and the sign announcing the restaurant will take you by surprise. The place, founded in 1970, seems like a bit of a relic, bringing the feel...

Indian cooking made easy

The title of Sukumaran Muralidharan’s debut cookbook, A Short Course in Culinary Experiments: Vegetarian Indian Cuisine for Innovative Non-Experts, sounds a bit like the descriptive heading for a doctoral thesis, and understandably so. Muralidharan is a research associate at the University of Maryland Biotechnology...

The Fairly Detached Observers

I`m Art Kumbalek and here's the story. The Shepherd wants a weekly sports column, since sports apparently seems to be a popular topic of conversation these days amongst a certain clique. And somehow I got tabbed to helm the launching of this craft; qualifications being I don't need to spell-check "Lambeau,"...
