New Chinese place in Minneapolis/St Paul
Guang Zhou is now open in the Twin Cities, at Highway 10 and Central Avenue. I have to rank this up there with Little Szechuan and Tea House. Please check it out so it stays open, it is close to me.
Now that I've been to Guang Zhou a couple times I need to follow up to this post.
I agree with Chow11, I want it to stay open too.
Not long after this posting first appeared I tried takeout and had the pan fried
noodles with chicken. Very tasty, good quality.
This past Saturday my wife and I went there for dinner. I had the Szechuan chicken
which I was very impressed with. Good flavor, respectably spicy and very good quality
white meat chicken, vegetables were properly cooked and not overdone. My wife was equally impressed with the Szechuan kung pao chicken.
We will definitely be going back. By the way, its location is on the north side of Hwy 10 and Central Av. right next to the Nicklows cafe/bar.
Good point about the highway 10s. It is the old Hwy 10 that goes by
There must have been more than one Nicklows in the past, the one I was
talking about is called "Nicklows Cafe and Bar" which definitely appeared
open. See http://www.nicklowscafe.com/ Going by their website, they
say they say this area is in Spring Lake Park.
I couldn't find Guang Zhou's address but I see that Nicklows bar/grill
next door is at 8466 Central Ave NE, Spring Lake Park. Type this into
google maps and it finds the area properly. Don't use the map link on
Nicklow's website, it points you to the wrong place for some reason.
We checked out Guang Zhou for lunch on Thursday. What a great place! They have a buffet at lunch time. They do it a bit different. They serve you individually at your table. Really a nice touch. Everything was excellent. A great dish is the Beef black pepper tenderloin in brown sauce. I would order that without a doubt some evening. For those that like Little Szechuan's Chung King Shrimp, they have it under another name. You would have to ask for it because I can't recall what it is called. I believe the owners son told us his father was a chef at the Tea House prior to opening his own restaurant.
