The Twin Cities doesn't have a Chinatown, Koreatown, or Japantown like our compatriots in Chicago, San Francisco, and New York. But we do have United Noodles. Think of it as your United Nations of culinary ingredients. Tucked away in the Seward neighborhood, this 15,000-square-foot emporium has a mind-boggling frozen food section, a fish counter, a full-service butcher, and an extensive produce section. It's easy to spend hours wandering the aisles of colorful snack foods (whether you can decipher the packages or not) and ogling all the animal bits that you won't see on display at Cub. You'll find products from China, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, India, Sri Lanka, and Hawaii. There's a small housewares section where you can buy everything from back scratchers to rice cookers. Be sure to take advantage of the inexpensive and delicious ramen at the in-store cafeteria, Unideli.
