Does anyone know what's happening with Gangchen? This is one of my favorite spots and I just saw this on Heavy Table's list of closings:
•Gangchen, 1833 Nicollet Ave S, Minneapolis. Re-opening as Tibet Kitchen.
Does anyone know if it's the same people running the show? Any of the same menu items? I'm bummed!
Tibet Kitchen is now open in the old Gangchen space. I never went to the old Gangchen, so I can't tell you how the new place compares. I can tell you I had an utterly delicious bowl of vegetable stew with chewy hand made noodles (thenthuk), and I am scheming how I can go back again for more. Also, the new menu and the menu on the Gangchen website are nearly identical, so maybe it was mostly a name change.
