Ann Kim rocks it on Triple D All Stars
In case you missed it, Minneapolis's own Pizzeria Lola was featured on an episode of the Food Network's Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives last night. Host Guy Fieri paid a visit to the south Minneapolis pizzeria along with local food celebrity Andrew Zimmern to get a peek at the kitchen and chef Ann Kim's tricks of the trade.

The episode shows Kim crafting Lola's signature marinara sauce, the kimchi recipe she learned from her mother, pizza dough (the product of a 48-hour process), and the restaurant's house-made fennel sausage. Kim is knowledgeable, charming, and fun, and holds her own next to Fieri's sometimes overbearing presence. Local theatergoers may also recognize acclaimed actress of stage and screen Tracey Maloney, who makes an appearance and rhapsodizes about Lola's pizza.

55th and Xerxes is Southwest MPLS, not South. 

Also, Guy has been coming off even more of a d-bag lately on the show. He's insufferable. 


Minneapolis people have been coming off even more as d-bags for the past 15 years. You are insufferable. Stop being so damn touchy about South versus Southwest. Love the post.
