Situated in Minnesota, The Sioux Chef is a new Native American restaurant that has some pretty incredible "pre-colonization" dishes made with fresh and even wild foods of the Sioux and Ojibwe Indian tribes.
Prepared in a way that doesn’t take away from the natural feel and freshness of the food, the dishes maintain a strong native influence.
Chef Sean Sherman is of the Oglala Lakota Sioux tribe, is the man behind these dishes. He has 25 years of cooking experience with a focus on “pre-reservation indigenous knowledge of wild foods.”
He plans to open his dream eatery in Minneapolis-St. Paul area by the end of this year.
Here are some mouth-watering examples:
