Most people go to Super Star Asian for the dim sum. But we'll let you in on a secret: This modest storefront in what remains of Alameda Square, at 2200 West Alameda Avenue, has an amazing lunch deal: Just $5.95 buys you hot tea, a big bowl of hot-and-sour soup, a handmade egg roll, rice, your choice from a list of two dozen traditional Chinese entrees, including such mainstays as Mongolian beef, and even dessert.
It's an incredible bargain for both the quality and quantity of food. You may have to convince your dim sum-pushing server that you want it, though. To reach the restaurant, call 303-727-9889.
