I just started exploring the Asian area on University Ave beginning at around Dale and heading East in St. Paul (yes, I live in the western burbs of Mpls, but my daughter dances in St. Paul, so we spend a lot of time there dropping off and picking up). There are quite a few Asian restaurants there and I'm looking for recs about the ones you have tried and what you thought about them. My journey started a couple of months ago when I wandered into Mai Village one night for dinner. Another night, I attempted to go to Little Szechuan but it was closed, and I ate at Krua Thai down the block. Then last week, I ate at Little Szechaun. And that has been the extent of the places I've tried. I know that I've seen quite a few other places all within several blocks of each other. I think one of the places is called "Cheng Heng"? and across the street, another one called something "Pho".
Any suggestions, recommendations, or ones to stay away from?
