The Blue Moose-Grand Forks, ND

June6

After leaving Winnipeg at approximately 3:30 in the afternoon, winding through Friday night traffic and then taking the I29 to our destination hotel, we were hungry. It was a gorgeous evening and even though a storm was gathering, we wanted to dine el fresco.

A Winnipeg blogger friend had recommended the Blue Moose and even though we had all been there before, the gang was eager to go.

After ordering their special of Long Island Ice Tea and icy cold beer, we were ready to tuck in. We knew that they served little plates and decided to share a number of them between the four of us.

Sister #2 makes excellent tequila chicken and when this arrived at the table, we didn’t know what it was. The Blue Moose’s decision to top the casserole with cheese was kind of unnecessary as the flavours of the chicken and the sauce should be able to stand on their own. Perhaps the cheese was to disguise the fact that there were only two pieces of chicken in the casserole.

The skirt steak uniquely rubbed with coffee was delicious.

Calamari rings were good with a light but appropriately salty coating.

We were surprised that the lettuce wraps were not heartier but as I look at the picture here, I think that I missed out on the chicken this time.

Stuffed mushrooms were very good.

We unanimously decided that the wall-eye fingers were our favourite taste. We know this fish as pickerel up here. Whatever is the correct term, this recipe let the lovely and sparkly taste of the fish shine through.

We had already done some shopping and had a plan for a very full next day so we didn’t linger long.
