Chinese Restaurant in Minneapolis

cmgioia May 4, 2013 06:28 PM

All-I lived in Minneapolis in 2000-01 time frame and there used to be this delicious Chinese place in the suburbs someplace (I think up North but not sure) that I loved. It had great food and a delicious dish that was called something like the 21 Spiced Chicken. I know it is a reach but I am just wondering if anyone on this site new the name of it and if it was still around. I may go back soon and wanted to go there if it was still around as the dish was amazing. But I can't recall the name of the place and it was definitely about 30-45 minutes from down town. Any help would be appreciated.

    I think that pre-dates Tea House by several years.

    Singapore Chinese Cuisine in Maplewood (north-ish) was a darling at that time. They had a "Captains Curry" that was made with 27 spices (and chicken).

      Which I believe is still on the menu at Singapore in South Minneapolis.

      Could you be thinking of TeaHouse in Plymouth?

        Well, considering that there about 900 Chinese restaurants in the Metro, you need to be a little more specific. When you say, "up North", I am assuming that you mean the North Metro? And 30-45 minutes from downtown Minneapolis would place you in a rural area outside of the Twin Cities.
