Milwaukee: Jalapeno Loco, March 11

Anybody near Jalapeno Loco in Milwaukee on Saturday, March 11 is welcome to join myself and Mrs. Chicken for dinner.  So far JRPfeff and PieDiva are penciled in and there's plenty of room for more; the time's yet to be determined but it'll probably be fairly early as our flight the next morning requires us to be up at zero-dark-thirty.

    Kopp's Flavor Forecast for March 11

    Caramel Cashew

    Our own caramel with special roasted cashews

    Red Velvet Cake

    We are still uncertain as to the origin of this rich and delicious cake with it’s dark red coloring. Some say it originated in the south and others are giving credit to the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York. The passion of this renowned dessert has now moved to the Midwest where Kopp’s will again revive its popularity.

    The restaurant opens at 11am every day and happy hour is 3-6.  You're on your own with the TOFS.

    Mmmm...Chiles en Nogada...the first dish I ever tried at Jalapeno Loco, and still one of my favorites on the menu.  The first bite was so startlingly delicious it actually made burst out laughing with glee.

    I don't recall any gleeful laughter but at least one person ordered Chiles en Nogada...maybe it was Mrs. MFL?
     
    Overall it was a very good dinner, from the drinks through the tasty house salsa and chips through the Queso Fundido appetizer (and I believe Gyp might've had a bowl of the Cream of Jalapeno soup as well) through the entrees.  My Shrimp a la Diabla had plenty of heat and MFL's Hugos Insane Special was definitely over the top, and I don't think Mrs. C and I had any better Latino food while we were in Phoenix.  Thanks to everyone for giving us a nice sendoff!

    SC, Have a safe trip...enjoy! Hit Don and Charlie's if you are a baseball memorabilia nut...unless you have already been. My In-Laws were friendly with the owners...from the Chicago Carson's Ribs fame. We were always treated very well.

    You're a little late...we left last Sunday morning and returned yesterday afternoon.  But we did have a safe trip and a good time!

    Great meal at JL. Who's responsible for letting ScreamingChicken know about it?

    Doesn't Chiles en Nogada have nuts in it? I seem to recall that. And that's why I've never eaten it. I detest nuts in my food. Yes, and in my cake, pie -- anything. That said, I love nuts, but not in things.

    Correct...it contains almonds and walnuts are used in the sauce.

    The nuts wouldn't be a problem for me but I'd pass because of the fruit.

    While I have nothing against pomegranate seeds in food, I do consider them superfluous.

    These added a nice sweet/tart accent.  They also provided a beautiful color component, looking like deep red rubies studding the plate.  It really is a spectacular dish.  And for all its beauty, it's basically a peasant meal.

    I'm not being critical of the dish. I simply do not eat anything with nuts in it. Well, I have enjoyed prairie oysters.

    Oh, I get it about the nuts.  I can't stand them in Ice Cream (except Pralines & Cream, or some variation).  I was responding to your comment about pomegranate seeds being superfluous.  They actually add an extra flavor element and texture in the dish.  Also, as noted above, they provide a very pleasing visual note.  And, as they say, "You eat with your eyes first."
     
    Prairie Oysters, LOL!  With a side of Lamb Fries?
