If you aren't planning a trip to China any time soon, your best hope for a really authentic
Chinese dining experience is the Second American Dongpo Cuisine Festival, which runs through
next Thursday, September 12 at the Tea House, 2450 University Ave., Minneapolis in Dinkytown.
The event is presented in partnership with the Meizhou Dongpo restaurant group from China,
which has brought over four chefs from its culinary team to prepare a special such as Dongpo
Lion's head (steamed fish dumplings, $6) and beef with Coprinus (shaggy mane) mushrooms ($10),
both recommended. Details at the Tea House website. If past experience is any guide,
a few of the dishes from this festival are likely to make it onto the Tea House's regular
menu after the festival ends.
