I like to think of myself as a food snob after my time in the Target Deli. I mean, I do know my cheese! I also learned quite a bit about the restaurant scene. Therefore, I see it as my duty to share my latest and greatest restaurant finds. On Saturday night Nick and I shared dinner with two friends. I suggested the restaurant Peninsula, which serves Malaysian cuisine. The restaurant is located on Eat Street (Nicollet Avenue) in Minneapolis. We shared a mix of dishes including: Red Curry Chicken, Shrimp Pad Thai, Spicy golden squid and pineapple seafood fried rice. I loved the curry and seafood rice the most.
For each restaurant I review, I’ll rate on these 6 things:
Price/Value: 4 stars (super cheap- entrees $8-17)
Food quality/taste: 4 stars (authentic and fresh, but not the best I’ve ever had. Liked the rice presentation in the pineapple).
Ambiance: 2 stars (pretty boring decor- nothing stands out)
Service: 3 stars
Location/Parking: 3 stars (they had a parking lot across the street)
Overall score: 3 – Good to try at least once
