Hello, and thanks for joining us for yet another week here aboard Spaceship Earth! Your in-flight meal is… TBD. Per sporadic Monday tradition, Quarantine Games has returned to ask you, readers, the perennially fresh question: “What am I eating?” 

In the most recent installment of the games, reader-commenter Cassie Jackson emerged victorious by correctly guessing that south Minneapolis newcomer Órale Mexican Eats had cooked up the feast in Round Eight’s photos.

We also gave a very special shout-out to Amy Fish, who identified nearly all of the dishes correctly! Pictured were Órale's incredible esquites, a pair of beer-battered fish tacos on blue corn tortillas, a California swimming burrito, and BBQ Filipino tacos.

Devotees of these shenanigans know the rules haven’t changed since day one. Still, we review them each week, in case we’re picking up playful stragglers along the way: Readers shall guess the answer to “What am I eating?” (i.e., which restaurant in the Twin Cities is responsible for the dishes in the photograph, and what those dishes might be). Post your answers in the comment section of this blog, response tweets, Facebook comments, etc. 

Winners will receive a feather in their cap (proverbial, not literal), possibly a ridiculous gif, a deep sense of inner fulfillment, plus a shout out here when we reveal the correct answer. 

UPDATE 7/28/20 3:48 p.m.: City Pages Twitter follower River T has claimed the gold in Quarantine Games round nine for correctly identifying the provider of this week's spread as Shish Mediterranean Kitchen. Pictured are the Fattoush Salad with gyro meat and a chicken shawarma wrap with a side of spicy feta. Shish is open daily for takeout, delivery, dine-in, and sidewalk seating along Grand Avenue in St. Paul. We'd also highly suggest you get a slice of Cities-best carrot cake that's taller than most peoples' heads, and makes for a very adult-ish breakfast if there's simply no room left at dark.
