I'm right now eating the best bun I've ever had in the Twin Cities. It's a bun chay (mock duck noodle salad) from Blue Lagoon on Rice Street.
An unlikely place (small, stand-alone building), just north of the disaster zone that is University right now, this little restaurant shows real promise.
Take a look at their menu http://www.bluelagoonmn.com/: tempting offerings across the spectrum of what they call, "various royal cuisines from the Nguyen Dynasty, a fusion of royal Vietnamese and French cuisines."
I drive by every day, noticed the name change when the place was transformed from the former (and unrelated) Lagoon Restaurant, and finally ordered to-go today the bun chay and a bun thit nuong cha gio (eggroll and grilled pork noodle salad). Really exemplary. At an unbelievable $6.95 each.
Help to keep this little charmer in business!
