Drink names seemed to veer toward the dirty, so off that bugs you or your older than 21 that might not be your thing. We tried six apps and my favorite were the pot stickers. Peyea (sp?)

I loved this huge place located Uptown. I went there on a warm summer night so could sit outside. Portions were geberous and very good. The menu is extremely extensive, including fusion latin american and asian fusion specialties.

Chino is one of our favorite stops when visiting Minneapolis. Be sure to try the bang bang chicken wings!

We went to Chino Latino for the first time this weekend to celebrate my daughter's graduation. What a fun place and the menu is full of surprises. The service was fantastic. We loved it and had a great time. It is definitely a great place for special occasions. Go with a lot of people so you can share the food... More
