Mall of America has tasty, local food options

11 April 2013

Masu’s modern Asian decor, with its giant geisha posters and Japanese pachinko game machines, is worth a visit in itself.

But the food is some of the best the mall has to offer, so I recommend you stay for lunch or dinner.

All the sushi I’ve tried has been imaginative, tasty and beautifully presented, but the dish I plan my shopping day around is the pork-belly ramen ($13). Rich and salty broth, chewy noodles and melt-in-your-mouth pork make this dish a star. Don’t skip the robata (grilled meat or vegetables on a stick), either. The chicken meatball version ($3.50) is fantastic.

There’s also a great happy hour, which includes discounted sushi rolls, ramen and specialty cocktails from 3 to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Masu Sushi and Robata, 344 South Avenue; 952-896-6278; $3 to $23.
