Quang Restaurant

2719 Nicollet Ave. S. Minneapolis, MN 55408 | Uptown/ Eat Street | 612-870-4739

Location Description:

Quang owner, chef, and mastermind Mrs. Truong has done more to introduce real Vietnamese cooking to Twin Citizens than anyone in town. When she opened her deli in a closet of a Nicollet Avenue space in 1989, she dazzled those willing to venture with big bowls of soup or bun (pronounced "boon") noodles topped with fresh herbs and barbecued pork, mock duck, even kebabs of ground shrimp molded around fresh sugar-cane skewers. Now that she's moved the restaurant to a vast, bright space across the street, devotees and neophytes alike are stacked five deep, clamoring for more of the cheap, tasty treats with the lime and cilantro inflections: More beef-curry stews (banh mi bo kho)! More pork chops on rice (com tam thit nuong)! More!
