Jun Bo report - Twin Cities

AnneInMpls | May 19, 2006 02:07 PM

I went to Jun Bo last night, and liked it very much.

The Chinese menu (the one with a red dot on the cover) was smaller than I expected - only a few pages - but I got the impression that it's just a starting point. When I asked about fish, there was a conference on the best selection for a single diner. The owner suggested a steamed sea bass filet in black bean sauce, so that's what I ordered. It was fabulous - flavorful, rich, and steamed so beautifully that it melted in my mouth.

I also had snow pea shoots with garlic. It was the best version of this dish I've ever had (but note that I don't get out much).

Jun Bo is huge, and reminds me of the places in a big city's Chinatown. They're a little disorganized (they've only been open a few weeks), but the service is very friendly and helpful. And the food is great - up to the level of a big-city Chinatown.

I'll definitely go back - maybe even tonight! (After I eat my leftover fish and pea shoots for lunch.)
