Downtown Minneapolis Teahouse

Didn't see this posted. I'm excited as the Plymouth Teahouse is one of my favorite resturants. I hope they do dancing fish.

MINNEAPOLIS, OCTOBER 4, 2007 – Asian Mill, Inc., the holding company for the Tea House Chinese Restaurants, is announcing that T-Express Restaurant, a Chinese fast food restaurant, will open in November 5, 2007 in downtown Minneapolis.

T-Express is located on the second floor in The Towle Building.

330 2nd Ave.
Minneapolis, MN 55401

  1. Interesting. I wonder if they'll have anything off their Szechuan menu or if they'll be just like all the other downtown Chinese places and have mediocre buffets.

      I was at the Teahouse last week which was excellent by the way. The bamboo tips appetizer was great and I had the Sole w/ sichuan spicy sauce and peppercorns which was excellent (Be prepared for hot though) I asked bout T express and they said they would use sichuan dishes from there menu to serve downtown.

        They will offer both, according to their website!

          Just got back...Had alot of items that they serve in plymouth. I had the spicy garlic pork and spicy sechuan fish in black bean sauce ($6.25). wasn't spectacular but by far the best chinese in the skyway. They load up on fried rice and give you skimpy main portions but it was definately filling.They also had a nice slection of cold items. I had spicy bamboo tips ($3.50)which is an appetizer I always get at the resturant. I'm bringing those home though.
