Best Chinese Restaurant Denver 2005 - JJ Chinese Restaurant
Readers' Choice: PF Chang's
For those addicted to searching out the true flavors of the mysterious East, JJ Chinese Restaurant is a wonderland of sights and smells and tastes -- highly specific regional cooking featuring dishes native to chef/ owner Kevin Ho's home province of Guangdong. For those who prefer something more along the lines of sesame chicken? Well, then JJ can be flat-out freaky, because Ho's menu offers no fewer than a dozen things that most people don't even consider food. Snakes, for example. Or capelin (a tiny fish, eaten whole), geoduck and pig intestines. But Ho is a man who cooks without fear, and he doesn't worry what his non-Guangdongian clientele might think of a plate full of duck feet and spicy bean paste. A meal here is a real adventure in eating.
