In today’s edition of the Churn newsletter, we review the newly opened Casa Maria in South Minneapolis, diving into the restaurant’s tacos, seafood, and more. Eli Radtke writes of their shrimp-bedecked hominy cakes:
Warm and crispy on the outside, with a pleasant savory taste on the inside, these rank among the best starchy flavors I have ever experienced.
Also: a couple of killer taco tips from readers, a life-changing recipe for oven-baked apple pancakes, news about Nashville Coop hot chicken, our Hot Five (including Vito Lucco pizza written up by WACSO, above), and much more.
