City Pages' Description

Everybody, now! Tengo had a little cult, little cult, little cult, Tengo had a little cult... And the cult has followed Tengo, and his sideman Sefu and Tengo's brother Pao, as they blazed an award-strewn trail through all the best sushi bars in town. When he opened this little spot on the second floor of Calhoun Square, the little cult breathed a collective sigh of relief, so exhausted were they from having to keep track of Tengo's comings and goings. Why the cult status? Scrupulously fresh fish; extravagant, even overblown, sometimes hilarious rolls; and a joint-is-jumping sushi-bar atmosphere with jokes, drinks, more jokes, more drinks, and fish fish fish. Be sure to ask about the Demon Releaser.

Tips from foursquare

  • Mpls.St.Paul Magazine on 03/11/11

    Try the Scorpion Roll. The Scorpion roll can help you with shrimp tempura and fried soft shell crab, asparagus, burdock root, and spicy mayo rolled with masago roe to give you a kick out of the norm.

  • Ron R. on 10/12/10

    One of the only places that you can buy Korean Soju!

  • Paul T. on 03/18/10

    Great happy hour drinks and apps. Soju for the win!

    if you're an Asian in Minneapolis that likes to hang out with other Asians, Tuesday night is for you. It's also Karaoke night.

    Terrible service.
