EAU CLAIRE (WQOW) – We now know which of Wisconsin’s cheese curds are the best, according to Eat Street’s Curd nerd.
Last week, Chris Attaway, the curd nerd herself, was in Eau Claire sampling some of the deep-fried treats we had to offer – including Dooley’s Pub, Mogie’s and Grizzly’s.
Eau Claire was not her only stop in the Dairy State. Attaway visited 11 cities including Appleton, Milwaukee, Wausau and Ellsworth.
After eating curds from 37 different restaurants, Attaway said the curds from Stone Arch Brewpub in Appleton are number one.
Eau Claire did make the top 10, however, with Milwaukee Burger Company.
Attaway judged the curds on flavor, texture, smell, squeakiness, presentation and sauce.
The Top 10 Cheese Curds:
Stone Arch Brewpub (Appleton)
Longtable Beer Cafe (Middleton)
Crafty Cow (Milwaukee)
Avenue Club (Madison)
The Sweet & Salty Pig (Fond du Lac)
