126. Food Truck Week: Eats & Treats
Ever since my colleague Nick Barth hipped me to the waffle dog, I've been chasing after the Eats & Treats Truck and, yesterday, I finally caught up.
127. Food Truck Week: YellowBellies
Every day in Downtown Milwaukee you will see food trucks scattered throughout the area. Today, I feasted on YellowBellies. And what a feast it was!
128. Food Truck Week: Fast Foodie
Since I haven't eaten at The Fast Foodie in a few months, I decided to reach out to owner Jackie Valent and ask her a few questions about her business, the state of the food truck business in Milwaukee and other things.
129. Local chef to participate in Trotter Project fundraiser
Chef Justin Carlisle, owner and executive chef of Ardent, 1751 N. Farwell Ave., will create a dish inspired by the legendary Charlie Trotter. It will be available on Saturday, Aug. 16 and proceeds will benefit the Trotter Project.
130. Potawatomi announces chef for Locavore restaurant
This morning, Potawatomi Hotel & Casino announced that Chef Van Luu will run the kitchen at its new Locavore restaurant.
131. Cafe La Paloma reopens in Walker's Point
Cafe La Paloma, 606 S. 5th St., quietly reopened this week after it closed in April.
132. Food Truck Week: The "Baconmeister" from Burgermeister
I quite enjoyed the "Garlicmeister" last time, but I'm pretty sure I'm now partial to their $9 "Baconmeister" meal. With 1/3 pound of Angus beef, topped with bourbon bacon, onion, lettuce, tomato and cheese (I opted for cheddar), it's the brioche bun that makes the difference to me. It comes with homemade chips or fries and a drink.
133. Food Truck Week: Roll MKE
I think I've found my favorite brisket in Milwaukee, brisket that could possibly compete with the scrumptious supply down in Texas. And the best part? It comes surrounded by an equally delicious grilled cheese sandwich.
134. Food Truck Week: Falafel Guys
I could pretty much eat falafel every day of my life and never get tired of it. The fried chickpea dish is close to the perfect vegetarian dish, and whether you claim it's Israeli or Arabic, it's one meal that everyone in the Middle East can agree is great.
135. Food Truck Week: Meat on the Street
Welcome to Meat on the Street, the first place dedicated to Filipino food in the city and a place where it won't cost you an arm and a leg to try this delightful stuff. And you never have trouble getting a table because the service is one of a legion of food trucks cruising the city this summer.
136. Food Truck Week: Bebe's Bistro
This summer, Kyra McCullum - who is a social worker by trade - rolled her food truck, called Bebe's Bistro, onto the Milwaukee streets for the first time.
137. Dinner plates, French wine and roasted pig
There's never a lack of great ways for foodies to spend their time in Milwaukee. This week's highlights include an "art meets food" experience, a dinner focusing on wines of the Côtes-Du-Rhône, and an old fashioned pig roast.
138. Chef Talk: The Pfister's Brian Frakes
In this installment of the Chef Talk series, Wisconsin Foodie's Kyle Cherek chats with Brian Frakes of The Pfister Hotel.

The Italian chef, writer, restauranteur and former "Iron Chef America" star will come to town on Friday, Oct. 24 for a special cookbook dinner at Bartolotta Restaurants' upcoming Downtown Kitchen in the U.S. Bank Center.
141. In search of the perfect pizza: Tony Maronni's
I started working for my current employer six years ago. A few months after I started, one of my team members invited us all over to his Sussex home for a Packers party. Among the popular party foods were pizzas delivered from a nearby pizzeria. The pizza was good enough - and the name was catchy enough - for me to remember them both all of these years later.
142. The perfect chocolate chip cookie skillet
I'm on the search for the perfect chocolate chip skillet dessert in Milwaukee. Can you help?

146. Making no duh no-knead pizza dough
With tomatoes and all sorts of mid-season vegetables coming into the markets, my mind immediately goes to pizza. We make at least two pizzas a week in my house, and I've got a no-knead dough that couldn't be simpler.
147. Anodyne Coffee replacing Cedarburg Roastery at Milwaukee Public Market
This morning, the Milwaukee Public Market announced that Anodyne Coffee will move into a space on the southwest corner of the market, across from Margarita Paradise and The Spice House, replacing Cedarburg Coffee Roastery.
