The Twin Cities largest Asian grocery
United Noodles is the largest Asian grocery in the Twin Cities, and claims to be the largest in the Midwest. They have a lot of foods for vegetarians and vegans, including a freezer case devoted to vegetarian foods like mock meats and various types of tofu. They also have many, many other products that can appeal to vegetarians, including canned mock meat, vegetarian sauces (like "Za Jiang" noodle sauce), vegetarian buns, dumplings, etc.
The store carries primarily Chinese and Japanese foods, but they also have items from Southeast Asia, Korea and India.
Besides food, they also sell Asian kitchenware and a small selection of Asian magazines and newspapers.

I went to check out their deli after a friend told me about this place.
They have some good vegetarian options. Not as clearly marked for Vegan.
This place seemed consistently busy when i was there but the service and delivery of food was fast.
I had the Vegan Shoyu bowl. It was tasty and well portioned but it had a little too much salt for my taste. Overall a good visit for someone who craves authentic noodles.
I made my first trip to United Noodle this morning after years of hearing it described as the best place for Asian groceries. I arrived at 8 am to find that they don't open until 9 am. Thankfully, they saw me arrive and welcomed me just the same. I was limited by how much I could carry for the many miles home but I stocked up on tofu (99 cents!) spring roll wrappers (less than $2 for a good amount!) and rice noodles (99 cents!). I was thrilled with the prices and wished I could have bought so much more.
I was also impressed by the selection; most conventional grocery stores offer one or two tofu options, noodle options, etc. At United Noodles there was much more to choose from at better prices. I didn't get to check out their deli items or produce but just based on the prices/selection I saw I will be a regular customer from now on.
