Gai Gai Thai For Lunch and Morning Roundup

Mobile foodmongers Gai Gai Thai will be launching a once-a-week lunch service at Patisserie 46 this Thursday (menu as PDF — grilled pork belly nam tok FTW!); a general look at what some farmers market vendors are up to this winter; Donut Star in Burnsville has caught on to the bacon long john; METRO showers love on Sun Street Breads, Patisserie 46, and Rustica; a review of Schell’s Deer Brand beer; the rules of the “family meal” for restaurant workers, and Chef Scott Pampuch adds TV hosting duties to his already laden platter of commitments.
