Lunch recommendation for this Saturday

iphonechica | Oct 19, 2011 10:06 AM

I'll be in town for a dreaded wedding this weekend. I think I'll be on my own for lunch this Saturday. I grew up in Minneapolis/St. Paul, but haven't lived in the Twin Cities for 9 years. Yes, I've been back for a visit here and there, but times have changed.

Looking for a solid recommendation for Lunch on Saturday. Would like to keep the price to around $10-15 or less.

I'm staying in Rosemount, but have car and WILL travel. I'll be trekking to Bloomington and could easily swing into St. Paul or Minneapolis. Don't really have any set plans, so I can pretty much get anywhere in the metro area, within reason.

Places I've considered:

LeeAnn Chin - I know it's a chain...but there's nothing like it anywhere else. I miss Peking Chicken, cream cheese wonton, fried rice & egg rolls. Can someone chime in on the quality now adays?

Tanpopo - We used to live in the general neighborhood of the original location. Loved the bowls of Japanese noodle soup. I see they have moved to Lowertown. Are the ingredient quality and care of preparation still intact? I loved the Vegetable Tempura Udon.

Taste of Thailand - Love the masaman curry. I live in Chicago now, so Thai restaurants are prevalent here.

Right now, I need to avoid sushi & deli meats.

Any suggestions or opinions about the above will only help. Thanks!

ETA: Even though my 3 considerations are Asian...I'm not looking for specifically Asian recs.
