Russell and his carnivore special

23Oct09

AKA, My Night in Minneapolis


Russell is one of the chefs at The Anchor in Minneapolis (brand new and highly recommended as they quite possibly have the BEST fish and chips I have ever had) and this is him after playing in the kitchen (the perk of being one of the last customers standing) and came up with “The Russell Special”. Warning: it is not recommended for those with dietary restrictions or individuals with high cholesterol or blood pressure, nor to be eaten regularly. However, if you are in your early twenties and find yourself hungover, this is heaven! He took a hamburger patty, wrapped it in bacon, then added cheese, then battered and fried, then topped with a fried egg (over easy so you get the yummy creamy yumminess from the yolk) and their amazing brown gravy. I suddenly wish I was 22, had no dietary restrictions and hungover (and that they were open for breakfast).

If you live in the Minneapolis area or plan on visiting soon, you MUST give this place a try. I was only in the area for two nights, but it was my dinner both nights because we had to go back!

Notice it is still steaming from the fryer! It may not photograph well, but some food is meant to be eaten and not art!

It was so good that I allowed myself to be photographed eating it!

After.

After.

Good girls by day, shameless hussies by night!
