We love ethnic food, but ethnic restaurants are often hidden gems without websites or any publicity hoopla. This blog aims to spread awareness of the Twin Cities’ ethnic eats- chock full of useful information and pictures of great, authentic food.
Read along and explore what Minneapolis/St. Paul has to offer. Our goal is to provide an overview of the restaurants, rather than an in-depth review due to the high volume of restaurants to try!
If you’ve visited any of the restaurants on this site, let us know and comment!
