Really Good Momo + Sambusas – Amazing Momo & Karibu Grocery & Deli

Still waiting on baby. He’s taking his sweet time.

Here’s a quick post on some really good momo and sambusas I’ve enjoyed recently.

Amazing Momo

The smell of pan fried dumplings stopped me in my tracks.

Earlier this month I visited the downtown St. Paul farmers market on a Saturday morning while Jake took the toddler to gymnastics.

The Saturday market is a more lively scene than the Sunday market – there was live music and more prepared food vendors, which is the main draw for me. Because snacks!

Trying Foods From The Ha Tien Deli – St. Paul MN

It’s supposedly my due date.

My greatest fear is that I’ll have no idea that I’m going into labor arrive at the hospital too late for an epidural.

I’ve been carrying around a handout my medical providers gave for weeks that describes when to go to the hospital and provides the emergency phone number.  Now it’s as soft as fabric from me opening and closing it so many times.

“Consume clear fluids! Avoid fatty foods. . . ” it advises if you feel like labor is starting.

“I think I have enough time to get a Korean corn dog,” I said to Jake as I grabbed my car keys and hobbled to my car.

At first I thought of going to Dragon Star to check out their Korean corn dogs, mochi doughnuts and bubble tea, but changed my mind to Ha Tien.

First Visit To Manny’s Steakhouse – Minneapolis, MN

We’ve never been to Manny’s Steakhouse before.

Manny’s, located in downtown Minneapolis, is an iconic local steakhouse that opened in 1987.

Manny’s is part of the Parasole Restaurant Group. 

You’ll find Manny’s on “Best Of” lists all of the time.

We don’t dine at steakhouses very often. While I enjoy steak, I don’t order it from restaurants often. We typically marinate and grill our own steaks at home.

If a menu has seafood on the menu I typically gravitate towards that for a treat.

My Two Most Ordered Foods + A Few Good Meals

Pregnancy cravings and aversions are strange things.

During my first, I had an aversion to chicken the entire time. Just the smell made me barf. This time, my food aversions evaporated after the first trimester.

The food that I’ve been ordering the most is Green Mill’s Desert Fire Pasta. Countless times during the past year.

Green Mill is a Midwest chain, but don’t sleep on it. It’s better than average.

They also offer in-house delivery. The original St. Paul Hamline Ave/Grand location might not list a delivery option online, but when you call to ask they often can accommodate.

Following The Signs: Booyah & An Eggroll Sale

This weekend I decided to follow local signs around for food.

The suburb we moved to hosts a weekend celebration that includes live music, inflatables, food trucks, parades, and fireworks.

Signs around town promoting the festivities and Lions Club pig roast caught  my eye.

I met my family at the park and we enjoyed pulled pork sandwiches. It was some of the most tender and flavorful pork I’ve ever enjoyed.
