Na's Thai in Chanhassen is fantastic!! The massaman beef is my favorite but everything I have tried there is delicious. It tastes like someone cooked it vs. thawed out from the vendor. I am still looking for good Chinese . . .

Oh and try Midtown Global Market in Minneapolis, sorta like an indoor food court / festival with tons of great ethnic choices, some groceries and crafts too. Has Holy Land, various Mexican offerings that are outside the normal "burrito," soul food, etc etc. -- there must be at least a dozen different ones, not expensive and really fun for lunch. Wear your scrubs you will be surrounded by Abbott and Childrens' staff. : )

There is a decent Greek restaurant in Fargo, Santa Lucia http://santaluciainc.com/index.htm


At first I thought there was a city named Fargo in Santa Lucia, which would be my 1st choice for a destination vacation.

As restaurants go - Moscow on the Hill, on Selby near the St. Paul Curling club, if just for the horseradish vodka.

And if anyone finds the nearby BULLSEYE, drop me a note. No, this may be the only one that is NOT at a Target.

Christos has Greek food and it seemed OK to me. The one on 7 looked closed when I passed by it on Thursday.
It's still open. I was there last week.

It always looks closed. I don't know how they stay in business.

China Wok on the northeast corner of Eden Prairie Rd and Highway 5 is good. They recently watered down their sweet and sour sauce so we go to Dragon Jade east of Excelsior Blvd and Eden Prairie Rd. We always get sweet and sour chicken with chicken fried rice. Tian Jin in Chanhassen is good too.

Try Grand Szechuan in Bloomington for chinese. You wonít find sweet and sour there. Just great authentic Chinese food.

The best chinese I've found is at Jasmine Garden in Hopkins. Hole in the wall but awesome food. Their chicken or beef or shrimp in ginger garlic sauce is awesome!

THE BEST basic hamburger is Nick's Burgers, located in Brookings, SD. Don't forget to ask for the dill pickle relish.

I know my husband LOVES Holy Land Deli..but I am unsure of the ethnicity of it. Before I came up here I knew Cajun, TexMex, Authintic Mexican, and American. Now I have been introduced to a few others. I have heard Dino's for Greek, but not sure how authintic it is.

We did a WNC there once, but that's the best I've got.
