I'm new to the Twin Cities so I tried the cabdriver approach to finding good Mexican. The cabby recommended Pinedas @ 311 E Lake. I went for lunch last Saturday and had two very good tacos, one of bistec and the other pork. The tortillas and salsa were excellent also. The tortillas were so good that I have a few extra with salsa. I recommend this place to anyone looking for no-nonsense, no-white-table- cloth Mexican.
Went to Un Deux Trois Satuday night and had mediocre Steak Frites. Can't recommend it. The portion was big, but a bit tough and boring.
Had Thai at Sawatdee for lunch Sunday. My red curry dish was hot as requested, but didn't have enough coconut milk. The chicken was fatty and the dish simply lacking flavor.
Any recommendations for Thai food here?
