Green Spoon

2600 University Ave NE

Minneapolis


     •     Fish and Chips $13


Green Spoon was more modern than I expected the interior looked like something you find downtown. I think there is potential there. My fish and chips were fine nothing too exciting, but well presented. Steve's philly I thought was really good, I usually am not a fan, but I thought it worked on every level.


I am not sure what to think about the place on one hand it was cool and would be a great place to hang out, on the other hand I am not sure they have a clear identity which may make it hard for them in the long run.


     •     Korean Philly Sandwich $14.95


Let's face it, the road construction on University Avenue and summertime near the U mean that Green Spoon will be available with little or no wait once you get there. The space is large with plenty of seating in a contemporary, Asian-inspired dining area.


The idea of Korean fusion is unique to me, but one that should do well in Minneapolis near the University of Minnesota. I enjoyed the Korean Philly Sandwich with bulgogi, mushrooms, peppers, onions, aioli, and pepper jack cheese. Although traditionalists might shudder, fans of a Philly sandwich should try this variation. The fries and chips are both good. I would like to go back to Green Spoon to try more and more of their Korean and Korean-inspired menu items.
