Adelita’s Mexican Restaurant | Northeast Minneapolis

Adelita's Mexican Restaurant

Adelita’s Mexican Restaurant is only a mile from my house? This is going to get dangerous.



The Adelita’s menu was full of all my favorite things, so I couldn’t make up my mind. At the waitresses suggestion I ordered the chicken chimichanga, which was absolute perfection.

To be fair, I am from Minnesota where deep-fried everything reigns supreme (Minnesota State Fair), but I, honestly, don’t know what’s not to like about a deep fried burrito filled with beans, rice, and everything nice! Continue reading

Gorkha Palace – Round 2

gorkha palace

Gorkha Palace is by far my favorite restaurant in Northeast and I’ve already done a full review on the place, which you can read HERE. But, because I am so loyal to my readers (and to my sister), when she wanted to go get dinner I figured I should go back and try something else 😉 Continue reading

Sentyrz Ethnic Market | Northeast Minneapolis

sentyrz ethnic market

Sentyrz Ethnic Market has been part of “Nordeast” since 1923. One of the cool things about Northeast is the variety of small markets. Having Sentryz within walking distance from my apartment has saved me quite a few times when I’ve needed a last minute ingredient.


They have a pretty decent selection for how small the store is. You can easily get the essentials and some junk food.

Negative: don’t have a very big gluten free selection

Positive: The small cooler area dedicated to Annie’s Organic and Nut Thins

The meat counter is also pretty rave-worthy. The meat is cut, smoked, and packaged in house, and they make their own sausage recipes with natural casings. Continue reading

The Anchor Fish & Chips | Northeast Minneapolis

anchors fish and chips ne mpls

The Anchor Fish & Chips in Northeast is a cult classic. The food is always delicious and it’s always insansely busy, which means that there’s an art to getting seated at Anchor.

Because there are only a couple tables set up to accommodate more than two people if you go to dinner with more than that you’re looking at a minimum 45 minute wait. Seating is first-come-first-serve, so if you are trying to go with a party, either send someone to put your name in ahead of time or simply don’t go at supper time! Continue reading

Gorkha Palace | Northeast Minneapolis

Gorkha Palace

The first time I went to Gorkha Palace was with my sister, Ashley, before I had moved to Northeast. We were driving around looking for something different since she was visiting me “in the city” from the deep country a.k.a New Richmond, Wisconsin, where people have gardens with rows of vegetables, chickens that they plan on eating later as pets, and a four wheeler path in their backyard…hicks. Right, Ash? Haha.

Anyway, once she saw the sign for the Gorkha Palace she was set on getting Naan, and I was ready to try something new.

It ended up being the best decision we could have made. The food was delicious, the service was great, and for months I’ve been craving it, but haven’t yet found someone willing to venture back with me. So I finally gave in to my craving and ordered take-out. Continue reading

Que Viet Village House | Northeast Minneapolis

Qui Viet Eggroll

My friend, Andy, has been insisting that I need to try Que Viet in Northeast and last week we finally made it there for lunch.

As a native Northeasterner, I had no cause not to trust his recommendation, so when he insisted it was the best asian food he’s ever tasted, I wasn’t surprised when he was right.

Disclaimer: while this is a “Vietnamese restaurant” it isn’t very traditional. It’s more of an Americanized version of Vietnamese. Continue reading

The Mill Northeast | NE Minneapolis


It was suggested to me that we class up my Birthday celebration by heading over to The Mill Northeast.
Located on the corner of 19th St and Central Ave. Occupying the old Falafel King venue and nestled amongst some authentic eateries, it’s safe to say that this restaurant is a little out of place.

The Mill NE


I’ve been told the crab cake is delectable, but we were only there for drinks.


I’m a glutton for cucumber flavored anything, so it was obvious that I was going to order the “Tijuana Brass Smash,” which is made up of cucumber vodka, lime, cilantro, and pineapple. It was a gorgeous green color with a froth that was almost gelato textured. Continue reading
