Dinner at Kim’s Kitchen


Great Chinese Food in St. Paul

We are always on the lookout for great Chinese food, especially when it’s getting late and we’re out running errands. The other evening, desperate for food ideas and hungry for something simple, we noticed Kim’s Kitchen as we flew past on Randolph Avenue in St. Paul. Kim’s is a small, neighborhood restaurant that has been family-owned since the 1960s. They have a simple menu that features classic American-style Chinese food, perfect for those evenings when you want something comforting – it reminded me of the Chinese food I grew up eating from our neighborhood restaurant in southwest Minneapolis.

The Husband asked for a chicken recommendation and was told that the Kung Pao Chicken was one of their most popular items. He ordered up and cleaned his plate:

I tried the Vegetable Lo Mein and could have cleaned my plate but managed to stop myself. The only thing it was missing was a little tofu, but I love tofu on everything:

We headed home feeling warm and fuzzy from good food, hot tea and the quiet atmosphere. The next time we want great Chinese takeout, we’ll definitely be calling Kim’s.
