Best Food to Have Been Smuggled Out of Wisconsin
Cheese curds are a love letter to all things cheese. At Cheesie’s Pub & Grub (958 W. Belmont Ave.), they are fried until they achieve a satisfying crunch, and the kitchen’s simple preparation, no-frills batter, and absence of dipping sauce lets the cheese itself sing. These are the curds that Wisconsin expats remember from childhood. Cheddar-colored walls, cheese-themed artwork, and a gooey stable of grilled cheese sandwiches help make this spot a mecca for cheese lovers like myself.
