Would we go back:
2710 Nicollet Ave
• Gyoza (shared) $4.95
• Steamed Pork Buns (shared) $4.95
• Fried Chicken Ramen $9.95
First great name, although my youngest may have been a bit a disappointed when we got there. Not sure what he expected, but not just a normal restaurant.
But the food was very good and everybody enjoyed their meal. My ramen was very tasty, with lots of complex flavors in the broth. The noodles were nice and springy with I liked.
I am not sure we will necessarily be back, but maybe.
• Kimchi Ramen $10.95
I loved Kung Fu Noodle. The food was delicious and the prices were reasonable for the high quality food. The ambiance was a little fancy for a Japanese noodle shop on Eat Street, but spacious and comfortable at the same time. It's surprising how busy Zen Box Izakaya is in downtown Minneapolis, and how much busier Kung Fu Noodle should be.
The steamed pork buns and gyoza were both excellent - fresh, hot, and flavorful. They were not spicy, so the kids enjoyed them too. My kimchi ramen noodles were a delicious combination of beef, kimchi, and ramen noodles. The combination was the right amount of spiciness for me, a little above average, and you can add hot sauce if you like your food spicier. Also highly recommended are the boba milk (bubble) teas; the honey dew was very good, and the kids especially liked the strawberry tea.
Service was fast when we went, but the restaurant was not busy at all early on a Saturday night. I don't know what to expect at busier times. Parking is available in the adjacent lot, and street parking was also available when we were there.
