Consistently good this quintessential neighborhood grill has warm service with a lively, family-friendly atmosphere.

Stay for a seasonal cocktail like Alex’s Spring Fling with Laird's Applejack.

The “Sota” in the name stands for Minnesota, and this home grown mini chain currently has three locations with two more on deck, all in the Twin Cities. The fast-casual eatery focuses on clean Asian cuisine, using carefully sourced ingredients and avoiding MSG, dyes, and a little sadly, peanuts. The menu includes bowls, ramen and sushi, but the specialty here is Sotaritos- a tasty little burrito-eque roll stuffed a wide list of protein options, along with white and forbidden rice, all wrapped in tissue thin soy paper.
