Standing right in the heart of downtown NE lies Masu. After passing by Masu well over a dozen times, we finally made our way inside for some sake and noodles. After entering the restaurant, we couldn’t help but notice the unique layout. In the center of the restaurant, there is an enormous curved bar followed by a handful of neon bright Pachinko games tucked in the back corner. If you are looking for more of an intimate setting, the left side of the restaurant has just what you need.
Masu has it all really: it is an aesthetically pleasing restaurant with delicious food, great sake, and an attentive staff. When it comes down it it, we plan to be back for seconds. Most importantly, If you’re looking for a decent bowl of pork belly ramen – look no farther.
Where do we even begin with this place. When I first moved back to MPLS in early 2013, I never knew this place existed. Immediately after being introduced, it became my favorite Asian restaurant for a number of reasons. This one of a kind establishment, offers great specials on food and drinks, with the quality to match. The bar features a dance floor, disco ball, lasers and a live DJs. The subtle sit down restaurant, turned bar/venue, is complete with dazzling lights to make your Asian Taste experience. The restaurant really does it right by featuring rotating DJs and serving the best General Sao’s chicken in the city. When you make it down to Asian Taste, make sure to grab a bite, it’s hard to resist.
