If you aren't planning a trip to China any time soon, your best hope for a really authentic
Chinese dining experience is the Second American Dongpo Cuisine Festival, which runs through
next Thursday, September 12 at the Tea House, 2450 University Ave., Minneapolis in Dinkytown.
The event is presented in partnership with the Meizhou Dongpo restaurant group from China,
which has brought over four chefs from its culinary team to prepare a special such as Dongpo
Lion's head (steamed fish dumplings, $6) and beef with Coprinus (shaggy mane) mushrooms ($10),
both recommended. Details at the Tea House website. If past experience is any guide,
a few of the dishes from this festival are likely to make it onto the Tea House's regular
menu after the festival ends.

Asian Mill Inc. acquired the Tea House Chinese Restaurant in Plymouth in 1998.
It is the first Chinese restaurant to bring authentic Szechuan food to Minnesota
in 2002. Through continuous improvement of proprietary recipes, service and
ambience, Tea House has now at the forefront of genuine Chinese restaurants in
Minneapolis/St. Paul area.
We adjusted our strategy in 2014 and sold our restaurants in Plymouth, Minneapolis Skyway and St. Paul.
The Tea House restaurants in Plymouth and St. Paul are now owned and operated by other independent owners.
We are focusing on only one location on Univeristy of Minnesota Twin Cities campus and have been continuously
improving overall customer experience including food, service and ambience.
Now we set our focus to the rest of China. From the resting place of the Terracotta Warriors in Shaanxi,
to the Forbidden City in Beijing, we seek to bring you the best of Chinese cuisines.
Welcome to Tea House @ University!
