[FHCx128] National Roast Leg of Lamb Day

Shake a leg, because


Lamb is a pretty awesome meat. It saddens us here in the SPAKworld when we hear friends say things about how “exotic” it is to eat lamb. Apparently, the only three meats are chicken, beef, and pork. Maybe turkey, if you’re a little cultured. No! Lamb is great. It can be problematic when trying not to indulge on food, though, as it’s generally pretty fatty. That means it’s all the tastier!

Tonight we took a trip to the Downtowner Woodfire Grill in Downtown St. Paul. In an area along W 7th Street that houses other amazing eateries like Forepaugh’s and Cosetta, a restaurant has to have a longstanding history of quality in order to stay in business. And that Downtowner does. When you walk in, you get a pretty strong whiff of some tasty planks over the fire. It’s impressive and very appetizing. We’re here for lamb!

Kebab style!

Very tender, a very unique flavor of lamb. If you like lamb, this is a great choice!

Of course, we closed dinner by having some great desserts, too:
