Rock Paper Scissors Date Night

The Fox Cities are full of so many incredible dining options that sometimes it can be hard to choose just one. Follow along as we pick our favorites to create the ultimate meal in the Fox Cities.

How it Works

  1. Grab a loved one, friend, or significant other.
  2. Hop in the car.
  3. Play a rousing game of Rock Paper Scissors
  4. The winner picks the location you go to for drinks
  5. Repeat steps 3 & 4 until you have a drink, appetizer, entree, and a dessert

Round 1: Drinks

We started with drinks and our first game of Rock Paper Scissors. I won and got to pick where we headed first.

Where we went: All Seasons Coffeehouse - Is a family-owned coffeehouse with great drinks and some of the most friendly staff you'll ever meet. They're just off Highway 41 and have a drive-thru window for easy access. Aside from the drinks All Seasons Coffeehouse also offers baked goods and delicious sandwiches.

What we got: I decided on a fresh fruit smoothie with bananas, strawberries, and blueberries blended together with soy milk. My partner decided on the Caramel Apple Cider, the steamed cider comes topped with homemade caramel and whipped cream.

Round 2: Appetizers

She won this round (on a fluke), so she made the second pick.

Where we went: Eggrolls Inc. - specializes in Hmong eggrolls with a twist. Their eggrolls are baked not fried and made with fresh locally sourced produce and meat from local butchers. Their "guilt-free" eggrolls have been featured on the program Man vs. Food where the host tried to down 12 of their giant baked eggrolls.

What we got: After staring at the large number of flavor options I settled on shrimp and she picked a spicy pork roll. We also snagged some sauces to pair with our eggrolls, I went with the mildest option of sweet and sour because I'm a wimp and she decided on the spicier choice with the "Tears of Joy".

Round 3: The Entree

I lost again and am starting to rethink my Rock Paper Scissors strategy.

Where we went: Crazy Donkey Burrito Grill - Located by the Tayco Street Bridge in Menasha, this little restaurant packs HUGE flavor. Crazy Donkey Burrito Grill serves massive burritos, handcrafted tacos, and a few other culinary creations as well.

What we got: I grabbed a Nopalitos Burrito for myself. The burrito comes stuffed with pulled pork, rice, beans, tomato, onion, cilantro, mozzarella, green sauce, and cactus. If you've never had cactus, I highly recommend ordering this burrito! She picked the Birria Tacos. The tacos are stuffed with pork birria and mozzarella cheese and topped with onions and cilantro. The tacos come with a pork stew for dipping and, while this may have been a little messy for the car, they were so worth it!

Round 4: Dessert

She won the 4th and final round bringing my win percentage down to 25%.

Where we went: Frio Mexican Treats - The owner of Frio brought traditional Mexican treats to the Fox Cities. They offer a variety of treats, ranging from sweet Mexican ice cream to savory Elotes. Keep an eye on their open hours because they are limited in the winter.

What we got: I decided on their Captain Crunch Churro Bar, which comes with deep-fried Captain Crunch flakes, Mexican vanilla whipped cream cajeta, and two vanilla churros. She chose their avocado ice cream. I was skeptical at first, but she let me try and bite, and it was delicious. The creaminess of the avocados made the ice cream so refreshing!
