The Sauce and I..

A few weeks ago I hopped in my car.. off to meet a friend and explore a new to me place.

Lately I’ve been swept up on the “New Restaurant” hype. So many places are opening up around Minneapolis and they’ve created an entirely new must try list in my notes app..

So much so that I’ve neglected my long running must eats list..

Friend D brought me back to this wishlist when she suggested we meet at Chimborazo.

Have you been to this intriguing place off of Central in northeast Minneapolis?

It was my first intro to Ecuadorian cuisine… an introduction which will usher in many more dining adventures if Chimborazo has anything to do with it!

The special called to me that night and while the name escapes me, it was a dish of scallops and shrimp topped with a creamy, spicy coconut sauce…..

I could just take a spoon to that sauce…. just the sauce and I… alone in a room….hmmm.. OOOO you’re there. oops.

I mean.. enough about the sauce.

The sweet fried plantains on the side didn’t stand a chance either.

Seriously this place is amazing.  The flavors bring me back both to Asia and my (one) trip to Chile. There is such a complexity of flavors here.

If you do not go here… I’m sorry.

Thank you to D for bringing me to a place that has been on my must try list for far too long. I’ll try not to get inappropriate with my sauce explanations next time 😉

  1. As the aforementioned D, I’m so glad we got to eat at Chimb!! Can’t wait to try out more places like this- it was AWESOME SAUCE (pun intended obviously.)

  2. Just mentioning that the flavors bring you back to Chile makes me want to try this place. Oh how I miss the empanadas, pisco sours, and the wine…OH THE WINE!
