Have you ever played the car game, “On my trip to California?” It is a memorization game, where you start at the beginning of the alphabet, packing an item with each item. For instance, “On my trip to California I brought an aardvark and a bag of bacon.” The next person would follow up with the letter C. “On my trip to California I brought an aardvark, bag of bacon, and a corkscrew.” It is a good time killer, and for some reason I feel like it fits well with on my trip to Fargo, ND.
On my trip to Fargo, I felt like I saw many odd things, no aardvarks, but some interesting people none the less. Due to an unfortunate family emergency we became very familiar with the Sanford hospital in Fargo. We were there for about a week of that time and became familiar with Fargo and the surrounding area.
We didn’t have a ton of time to explore the area’s nature and odd roadside offerings (not even sure if Fargo offers any of these things). After a not so great malt experience, we were lucky enough to find the malt that holds the number two position on our list.
Kroll’s Diner was a pleasure to experience. If I can get breakfast for every meal of the day, I will often do it, and thankfully Kroll’s is the place to go for that. My order of pancakes was not your normal, premade mixture of dump and microwave batter. The cakes were thick and tasted of from your grandma’s skillet goodness.
Kroll’s has many daily specials, like shaky Mondays, where you can get two shakes or malts for the price of one. We were very sad that we didn’t discover Kroll’s on a Monday, because their Malts were delicious. It came in a standard size malt glass, with your normal strawberry flavor, but the nice thing was that you could actually taste the malt mix, which we have discovered most places heavily skimp on this ingredient. After the plentiful amount of food offered, finishing my delicious malt was a task I was unable to achieve. If you are ever in Fargo, definitely don’t miss out on their food and malts.
