For this week’s Off the Beaten Plate, we traveled south of the border by way of Italy with Minksy’s tostada pizza.

If, like me, your everyday breakfast consists of two Eggo waffles hastily eaten on the ride to work, a meal at The Waffle Iron is a particularly special occasion.
Don't let the name fool you — this dish doesn't involve any bread.
Quinoa has a bit of a reputation as a health food, a favorite among hippie types and fitness buffs for its high levels of protein and fiber. It's gluten-free, and not really associated with heavy fried dishes.
We've never met a cheese we didn't like, and the Halum appetizer at Aladdin Cafe (our first experience with the variety) was no exception.
This frozen treat is like two desserts in one — soft, gelatinous mochi (a Japanese pounded rice cake, for the uninitiated) on the outside and a scoop of ice cream on the inside.
If you've ever bitten into a hamburger and thought to yourself, "This could really use more meat," the Mad Greek's Hercules Burger may be the meal for you.
Even the most tofu-phobic might appreciate this traditional Japanese dish from Wa. After all, everything is better fried, as they say.
If you catch a glimpse of the Grilled Glazer from far away, it might appear to be a normal chicken sandwich. Upon closer inspection, though, and it's pretty clear that this is no ordinary meal.
The “Walking Taco” is all about convenience. Order up a plate of these babies at Henry T’s and forget about the to-go box.
With Thanksgiving officially over and next month’s holiday feasts on their way, pumpkin heyday is in full swing. For those who can’t get enough of the festive vegetable, might we suggest something a little out of the ordinary: pumpkin curry at Baan Thai.
Just when we thought pizza couldn't get any more carb-heavy, along comes The Spud at Limestone Pizza.
Looking to dabble in a little food espionage? The Blissful Swiss at Eats is essentially a Reuben sandwich masquerading as a hot dog, and a tasty one at that. It's missing the rye bread (who eats a hot dog on rye?) and of course, the corned beef, but still calls to mind the classic sandwich.
What started as a temporary addition to the menu has now earned a permanent spot at Quinton’s: The Korean BBQ Short Rib Tacos.
You’re not likely to find anything like Zen Zero’s dessert spring rolls in Nepal or Thailand — or any traditional Asian cuisine, for that matter — but that doesn’t mean the bastardized confection isn’t delicious.
Like an Italian burrito.
An omelet in name and shape only — there's no eggs, only hash browns.
Lawrencians have loved the Woo Burger since West Coast started serving it in the late 1980s.
An omelet stuffed with macaroni and cheese — hey, why the heck not?
