2014 Isthmus a la Carts – Madison’s Food Cart Fest

Madison has a number of unique food carts that serve delicious food, from traditional Italian sandwiches to fresh off the grill hibachi chicken made on the spot in less than a few minutes. Most food carts are parked on the Square and UW Library Mall around lunch time 11am-2pm, but if you haven’t had time to come downtown and experience a food cart lunch, here’s your chance.

Isthmus a la Carts is an event that brings Madison street food to one location so you can taste it all! Mark your calendar foodies, on May 9th, 2014 at Olin Park next to Lake Monona, you’ll be filling your bellies with some of the best dishes Madison has to offer. Along with food, there will also be craft brews and soda on tap and music for you to better enjoy. But don’t wait too long. Last year tickets sold out in a blink of an eye. Make sure to get your admission ticket to an amazing food fest and order your tickets now before they sell out!

RED Sushi – refreshing.elegant.delicious

You may not know it but RED Sushi doesn’t simply mean the color red…but it actually stands for refreshing, elegant and delicious. And once you get a taste, you would agree. Freshness is key for a fine sushi restaurant and RED offers fresh seafood with shipments coming in quite frequently. Elegance can be found in their menu and their presentation. They don’t cut corner here and that is why everything here is absolutely delicious. RED – Refreshing, elegant and delicious indeed.


Make it a sushi lunch party, only $10 for two rolls.


Not into sushi? Don’t worry, there’s a ton of other non-sushi dishes you’ll enjoy. Photo of steamed clams (appetizers): sautéed in white wine, garlic, butter, onion, shallots and yuzu.


Shumai: steamed shrimp dumplings


Gyoza: pan seared pork dumplings


My favorite [here at RED, because it's always so fresh], escolar with a little torch.


Some of the best rolls you can get at RED and nowhere else in Madison, duck tempura and spicy scallop rolls (my most favorites rolls here hands down).


Yellowtail with avocado and green onion…oh so fresh.


Spicy crab. Yes, it’s crab, not crab imitation.


Fried Philly – you can request to fry any roll!


Black miso cod – one bite of this and you won’t be able to go back to any cod.
