i wanted to give a shout out to Midori's, a place i hadn't been in about a year. had a delicious and wholly satisfying meal there last night. tokyo ramen: a spot on rendition with pork, fish cake, seaweed, spinach and chewy noodles in an earthy broth. also had a starter of white kimchi and octopus salad. both were fantastic, and not something normally seen on japanese menus in town. also had some great sushi - spicy salmon roll with asparagus. fantastic meal overall, perfect for the chilly evenings.

  1. I recently had a very pleasant meal at Midori's too... we had several vegetarian appetizers and the Garden Sushi (vegetarian) dinner and everything was delicious

      I agree--they have great vegetarian choices!

    2. I've always had great food every time I've been there too. The service isn't that great, which probably prevents me from going more, is about the only complaint I have.

      I had gyuu-don there once that made me feel like I was back at a Matsunoya in Tokyo :) ahhhh

      1. I've read and heard conflicting opinions on Midori's. The bad opinions seems to overshadow the good. Met some friends there and from what I could tell the fish was just so-so. Looked like they were using izumi-dai which is just frozen prepackaged tilapia, which is not so good and the tuna was of poor quality. Water logged and gas treated. Did I just go on a bad day? I'd really like to find a good sushi spot as well as a good Japanese spot.

          I like Tanpopo in St. Paul for noodles and for their local sourcing, but I read that Masu brings in hand-pulled noodles from a place in LA, which I'd like to try, someday... http://www.startribune.com/lifestyle/...

        2. I've never tried the ramen at Midori's, because I'm addicted to the grilled fish bento dinner (either the salmon or the mackerel), because of the great fish and the ever-changing side salads. I can't comment on the sushi for the same reason... But this is a good reminder to get my patootie down there for some ramen soon.
