So I had many reasons for starting this blog. The first, was to use this as a virtual cookbook for all the recipes that Mr. Pea and I create and make. The second, was to use this as a way to build my food photography portfolio, as I am an aspiring food photographer. In this blog, I also want to talk about different restaurants that we have been to throughout Milwaukee as well as through our travels that are worth going to. Most of our friends ask us about different restaurants we have been to, and trust us foodies to give thoughtful reviews of places. Well this next place I am going to talk about, is probably a place that anyone that lives in Milwaukee has probably been to. This local Milwaukee landmark I am talking about is Kopp’s Frozen Custard.
This fabulous frozen custard restaurant has got to be my favorite guilty pleasure. It is one of the only fast food places that I will go to. Mr. Pea and I don’t visit many fast food places in general, our philosophy is that we can usually cook better food at home so why bother with the fast food crap. But Kopp’s frozen Custard is far from fast food crap, in fact, you will think you have dies and gone to fast food heaven!
Kopp’s makes the burgers that beat all burgers, period. Recently, there was a Man vs. Food episode that created a debate for which restaurant had the best burger. The only problem, Kopp’s wasn’t even a contender, probably because anybody would lose going up against this burger (or at least that is what I would like to think!). This burger is so freaking good, it is huge, buttery and made fresh to order just the way you like it. I like mine with just cheese and ketchup, but Mr.Pea likes his with raw onions and ketchup and mustard, but that is the beauty of it you can have it any way you would like.
If you are indulging with a burger you are already throwing your healthy diet out the window, so I say go all out. I like to have my burger with their tasty shoestring fries (that are light on the salt, which I like) and wash it down with a Sprecher Root Beer. Now try not to get too full, kind of impossible-but try! Why? because this is a frozen custard place of course, it wouldn’t be a trip to Kopp’s without the custard!
This custard is to die for, it is so delicious it just melts in your mouth. They make up many delicious flavors, two different kinds everyday. Don’t worry even if their flavor of the day isn’t your cup of tea, their chocolate and vanilla are so good all by themselves. My favorite flavor is their Pecan Praline, which is a Carmel flavored custard with candied pecans or pralines. Mr. Pea’s favorite is their butter pecan, which I like also like, but I am not very picky when it comes to Kopp’s frozen custard.So if you haven’t been to Kopp’s yet, I suggest you go now, you can thank me later!
At this Glendale location, there are white and one black cow sculptures that are pretty cool 🙂
Must get a Specher Root Beer to wash down this delicious burger (make it a float if you think you can’t save room for dessert!)
Look at that burger, now doesn’t that make your tummy rumble.
Today’s flavor was one of my favorites, Orange dream, it is like a creamcicle on crack!
Mr. Pea had Chocolate Banana Walnut Chunk, which was pretty good and those are his favorite flavors so needless to say he enjoyed it!
I <3 Kopp’s Frozen Custard!
