It's part of our series on "Wisconsin's Best Bites" and here are some (read: some) of our favorites... and we had to spread the love all around the state, so don't get snippy that I didn't mention all my favorite Milwaukee area food trucks. That would be an episode in itself. We did, however, give a shout to the Gouda Girls here in Milwaukee, as well as Madison-based Curd Girl, up into the North Woods for the awesome Lola’s Lunchbox in Phillips, Bee’s Ice Cream Truck in New Richmond (great story behind this one), Taqueria Maldonado's in Green Bay, Davis Dogs in Eau Claire, Urban Street Bistro in Wausau, Gabriel's Taqueria in Oconomowoc, and El Tapatio back in Milwaukee. And we invite you to submit your favorites!
On the Hidden Gems side, Mariah and I (along with "Audio Dave" and Ellen) talk about our favorite (secret) places in Wisconsin. They include architectural gems like the Tiffany Stone Bridge in Shopiere, just northeast of Beloit; kitschy fun things like Chatty Belle - the World's Largest Talking Cow - and the adjacent WCCN radio station, housed in the funky 1960s era building Wisconsin used as its exhibit for the 1964 World's Fair in New York CIty... both of which are right next to each other along U.S. 10 in Neillsville. We hit natural wonders like Ableman Gorge in Rock Springs and Cathedral Pines in Lakewood; historic sites like the Beckman Mill just west of Beloit; shopping fun at The Shops of Water Street in Princeton; the unique Elvis karate fight plaque in Madison (you'll really have to hear the story about that; and even the, Gary Gygax memorial in Lake Geneva. And if you don't know who he is, you'll find out here and you'll still find it interesting.
