Are you looking for a cheap place to take someone to lunch? Why not try the Mango Factory on Cedar-Riverside?
The restaurant is located on 223 Cedar Ave. S., Minneapolis, and offers a nice selection of lunch specials for just $8: pick any two basic rolls, or choose from a selected list of entrees including beef teriyaki, pork katsu, chicken curry or a tempura combo (shown here.) With any of the entrees, you can add a bowl of pretty good ramen noodle soup for $2 more, or a side of fried udon noodles for $3. Other items on the Asian fusion menu include a big variety of sushi, sashimi, seafood salads and specialty rolls, and an interesting selection of Japanese and Asian desserts, ranging from fruit smoothies and mochi ice cream to crepes stuffed with exotic fillings such as red bean, mango and durian.
