Eat Shop Kitchen & Bar's shrimp salad: 50 Favorite Dishes, no. 45
Spicy, sweet, crunchy, and juicy: this salad has it all
As a countdown to the Best of the Twin Cities 2013, coming April 17, the Hot Dish is serving up 50 of our favorite local dishes.
Here is a solid argument for dyed-in-the-wool city dwellers to step out of their inside-the-corridor comfort zones. It comes in the surprising form of a salad.
It's almost like the crew at Plymouth's Eat Shop Kitchen & Bar are trying to make their jobs harder than necessary. Why not just do as the previous restaurant did and buy prebagged food that only requires a zap in the microwave or a bath in the fryer before being plated up? When they moved in, there wasn't even a stove. Nothing was made by hand. Today, everything is made by hand at this chef-owned joint: the pickles, the salad dressings, the sauces.
