Nashville, TN Edition: Tansuo

By Candace Nelson - 8:28 PM


Tansuo in Nashville, Tennessee, is another concept from Maneet Chauhan that features modern riffs on Chinese classics & dim sum. Maneet is a Food Network chef who has appeared on everything from Chopped and Tournament of Champions to Iron Chef and Guy's Grocery Games.


When my friend Bri and I visited Tansuo, it was dark and moody and felt a bit exclusive. We sat at a big half circle table and order some appetizers for the table: chili oil dumplings with ground pork, black vinegar, chili oil and sichuan peppercorns and shrimp rangoons with szechuan cream cheese and mango chili sauce.


"Meaning 'to explore' in Cantonese, Tansuo is an exploration of contemporary Chinese cuisine reminiscent of China's night markets and traditional street fare. The menu features dishes using humble ingredients presented in an extraordinary way such as Foie Sui Man, Taiwanese Seared Ahi, General Tso's Chicken, and Singapore Noodles."


The dumplings had some more heat to them, but that silky smooth texture and slight numbing had me keep coming back for more. I loved the sweet, sour, spiciness. So tasty. The shrimp rangoons were good in theory, but. the execution was hard to live up to the delicious crab rangoon in my mind. Still, really tasty snacks that got our appetite ready for the next stop.
