Denver Restaurant Guide

A searchable directory of recommended local restaurants

Yong Gung

Denver has hundreds of Chinese restaurants and a healthy portion of Korean restaurants, too, but for a culinary collision of the two, you’ll need to go to Yong Gung – an Aurora eatery that features dishes that originated in China but evolved in Korea, thanks to Chinese settlers there. The waiting area is strewn with fanned copies of Bon Appétit; the dining room is elegant and modern, flatteringly illuminated and eye-catching. But the real eye-catchers are the noodle dishes, including jajangmyeon, a flavorful explosion of black soybean paste, pork and onion spooned over long, housemade noodles and served with scissors for easier eating.
