[MSP] Sprawling Hmong Market in St. Paul?

The Dairy Queen | Aug 17, 2006 02:34 AM

So, in an article called "The Worldwide Way" about the Hmong (and other ethnic) influence on University Avenue, today's Pioneer Press mentions a "sprawling market" near the Capitol on Como Avenue.

This seemed very chow-promising to me, so I got in my car and puttered up and down Como, Rice, and Dale Streets where they intersect University in search of a sprawling market. Sadly, I couldn't find a "sprawling market" of the kind I was envisioning. I did see "Dragon Star Oriental Foods" on Minnehaha at Como. I wish I had stopped in but, it wasn't "on Como" and I was on a mission for the holy-grail of sprawling markets. I plan to stop by next time, but, in the mean time:

Anyone know what sprawling market they might be talking about? Could it be Dragon Star Oriental Foods? I'm not even sure it's Hmong, although, I do see some folks raving about it in Josh Resnick's University Avenue thread from about three years ago...

Has it stood up to the test of time?

How's Shuang Hur, at 654 University Aveon University up the road from Foodsmart?
