MSP: Somali or Hmong Food?

scoopG | Jun 5, 2009 06:57 AM

According to Minnesota Public Radio (circa 2001) Minnesota is home to the largest Somali population outside of Africa, with estimates ranging from 6,000 to as many as 60,000 in Minnesota. There seems to be about 40,000+ Hmong, mostly in St. Paul (24,000) and Minneapolis (10,000.) Are there any Somali or Hmong restaurants of note? On a recent visit I did see a mysterious place on Lake and Chicago. The signage was limited and while it appeared to be a Somali restaurant it did not seem that welcoming - as if it was a private place. I think TDQ has mentioned Hmong markets in St. Paul.
