$15 for $30 Worth of Asian-Fusion Cuisine and Drinks
Sassy edamame tossed in a tangy soy vinaigrette ($6) cracks a safe of pan-Asian flavor leading to an outpouring of entrees such as madras chicken with dried chilies and curry leaves in a ChinDian sauce ($13) and malaysian kwe tieu goreng—rice noodles with shrimp and tofu in a garlic-chili sauce ($12). See the menu.
Chin Dian Café
Born in Vietnam and raised in the United States by Chinese parents, chef Nina Wong has always infused her dishes with a variety of Asian tastes. After marrying Thomas Gnanapragasam—a third-generation Malaysian of Indian descent—Wong discovered more unique flavors to integrate into her signature sauces and syrups. Originally opened in 2005, Chin Dian Café channels the pair's unique backgrounds through Asian soups, salads, and noodle and rice dishes, even offering some gluten-free options. Popular dishes, such as chow mai fun and chicken-and-chive dumplings, keep patrons rolling in and have earned the restaurant media acclaim from the Star Tribune, Minnesota Monthly, and the dictionary.
