MILWAUKEE: Frozen custard
We are certain to make enemies if we recommend Leon's frozen custard over Kopp's, or vice versa. Both are beloved. So let us just say that Milwaukee is a great place to visit, not only to tour the Harley-Davidson plant and the Miller Brewing company, but to eat this city's signature dish, which is a bit like soft-serve ice cream, but infinitely richer and as smooth as ivory. (As an aside, Milwaukee's wickedly succulent butter burgers and authentic Polish, Serbian, and German fare are also first-rate.) There are three Kopp's around town and they are known for having special flavors every day—expect confections such as burgundy coffee, grasshopper fudge, and Butterfinger candy bar. While Leon's has but one special flavor per week, its egg-rich vanilla and chocolate go down in our book as definitive.
