St. Paul

The Hmong are tribal people from the hills of Vietnam, Thailand and Laos who, after helping the United States in the Vietnam War, had to flee when American troops withdrew. Visit St. Paul’s Hmong Market, where a small lumberyard has turned into little Southeast Asia over the past decade. This is the country’s best and least-known ethnic market, with countless fruit and vegetable stalls and insanely delicious dishes in the food court. It’s my top lunch spot in the Twin Cities, serving everything from Hmong sausage to made-to-order papaya salads and hearty pho. Another St. Paul gem, the Vietnamese eatery Que Nha, makes some of the best crispy rice casseroles and roll-your-own spring rolls I’ve tasted anywhere.
