My buddy Kylene and I flirt with gluttony often. We decided to spend a Saturday afternoon doing a mini food crawl of Downtown Madison’s State Street area. We hit up the following places:
We hoped to end at Mad City Frites, but unexpectedly came across HopCat’s “crack fries”–Food Network voted these bad boys into their “Top Ten French Fries in 2015” list. How could we resist? And they were simple and delicious. Next time frites. Next time. Follow our culinary adventure here:
We got the full order of potato and beef mix with “the works”–butter, curry, cilantro, sriracha, and sour cream.
It was a delicious take on pel’meni. Perfect for this season. Full of flavor.
Getting boba tea in Madison is a challenge, so we welcomed KungFu tea with open arms. Hot coffee milk tea with boba.
Ky quite enjoyed her bubble tea.
At the wiener shop. The plant was cute.
This is their ode to the Vancouver-style Japadog. Asian slaw, mayo, avocado. It was a creamy and tart offering over the savory dog. I loved it.
This was fun–their ode to a Seattle dog. It was like an upgraded jalapeno popper.
Paused for the crane carrying tarp. More good foods to come to Madison.
Hopcat features 130 beers on tap, and it’s awesome. Ky didn’t quite like her barrel-aged apple beer, but it was fun to try.
I, however, devoured my Oyster IPA from Bent Kettling Co.
Ending with some sweets at Kilwins.
