Food Scene

Good and close to Real Mexican. Great barbacoa and rare to find carnitas "en adobo". Best meat tray for the price they call it Molcajete. Their pozole and menudo are good too for the brave souls out there! Also, their grocery store next door comes handy for lots of reasons. They have the best goat barbacoa you can find the Minnesota.

This is the old Java restaurant. Modest Egyptian food, but it has the best of the best fresh taste. Jerusalem Restaurant down the street can cook like this. Now it's called Merhaba Grill and their menu has changed but they have some amazing plates to order from the menu. Their buffet is great but I prefer the lamb, kofta and chicken platter. It's loaded and the yellow saffron basmati rice is the best one can find outside of Egypt. You don't go for the atmosphere, you go for the taste of real Egyptian food.

Maybe one of the best Indian restaurants in Minnesota. The flavor is better than most of the other Indian joints. They offer the option for few dollars extra to order "Thali" that's rarely found in America. This way you can try the blend of so many flavors of India. If you are scared you can't go wrong with Butter Chicken and if you are brave try their lamb. Don't forget your mango lassi with your meal and garlic naan bread.

This restaurant looks like someone's house. May look to some intimidating and feels like you are really in hills Cambodia or Laos. The food is really good for what it is. Lok Lak is refreshing and the flavor or lime mixed with salt and pepper is unbeatable. Pak Lou or Poush Chrouk, for the ones who can think outside the box at least once in their lifetime.

Parks & Nature

Good use of cement to create a quiet and peaceful park. Urban but has some nature references. Close to get a nice walk in a nice setting.
