Asian Sweet Snacks

Almond Pocky is honestly amazing. Have you tried the Mint Pocky? It tastes like Girl Scout Thin Mints, only crispier.

Asian Sweet Snacks

Hey! I just saw on Twitter that United Noodles now sells Green Tea and Vanilla Kit-Kats.

What are the best Japanese/Korean snacks out there? Anything I should try?

Twin Cities: Best Baguettes and Croissant??

What about Franklin Street Bakery? Anyone have any best baguette recommendations for Minneapolis?

I'm sure if you ask someone from the Customer Service area of the store, they will help you identify it. Maybe they will even see if they can stock it for you. Who knows? I got Kosuke to add Spam Masubi to the menu. Anything is possible. ;)

Eating Korean at Kabuki

Good to know. Kate and I will have to check out Kabuki. We were spoiled when we lived in Washington DC--often traveling to Annandale for some late night Korean food.

Re: Negative Reviews... It just shows you can't always trust these user reviews.

Late night dining in St. Paul

I totally agree. My friend flew in late a few Fridays ago. He wanted a good chiil place with a nice variety of beers. Naturally, I chose the Happy Gnome. We had the mussels and the braised short ribs, as well as a few stouts. He was very impressed overall.

:) The next time I make it to UN, I'll see if I can get more out of Kosuke on the upcoming Asian drinks and desserts.

According to Kosuke (the Chef), the Masubi starting next Wednesday will be without spam... It's called Omasubi. I was able to convince him to add the Hawaiian version too. He said it will take another week because he needs to buy good old Hormel Spam!

Major Ramen craving

I'm not sure... But I actually find the noodles to be the best part of the soup. It's chewy and a bit nutty! Yummy. We have to go back soon!

Major Ramen craving

I just saw this thread while commenting on United Noodle (or is it United Noodles) new Ramen. Chef Kosuke (a real Japanese dude) makes this awesome Tonkatsu-based Japanese Ramen for $7 per bowl. It's an Asian grocery store in an industrial complex tucked away across from Coastal Seafood. Hard to find, but you'll be glad when you do. The only crappy thing is the hours. The Deli is closed on Mondays; open from 11am-6pm from Tues-Sat, and 11am-5pm on Sun.

Agreed. I just voted for Chef Erick Harcey for the James Beard Award over a lot of really, really deserving people. He's able to provide amazing food without the stuffiness you find at most restaurants with tasting menus. Speaking of the anti-stuffiness, I love the 40s too!

Ramen at United Noodles UniDeli

My girlfriend I just popped at the UniDeli for a late lunch yesterday. I was able to get their new menu (starting next week). A computer guy adding the new files onto the usb keys for the display monitors emailed them to me. The only new dish UniDeli is adding is something called Masubi, which is apparently a popular sandwich substitute in Japan and Hawaii.

Kate and I had the awesome Ramen and a new secret roll called the Seven Samurai, which is a spicy tuna roll with pieces of avocado and nigiri tuna on top ($9.00).

We've also been there for the lunch special before. You get food piled high, but I think it's more geared for people who care more about quantity than presentation or quality.

The Chef said they are adding prepared Asian drinks and desserts in the Spring. Kate and my two nieces will LOVE that.
