Less Common Cuisine in the MSP Area

A list of restaurants serving harder-to-find cuisines (as opposed to Thai, Japanese, German, Spanish, etc.).

Compiled by Jacob Norlund / 17 June 2007

NOTE: Some of these restaurants may be out of business. Others may have changed names. And of course, it's not complete...yet. Any help in expanding the list would be greatly welcome.
