Szechuan Chinese has been a Lakewood institution for decades – and its dumplings attract fans from around the city. The focus here is on cuisine from the Sichuan area of China, but Szechuan also offers the usual suspects -- egg-drop soup, crab Rangoon, and those potstickers stuffed with a spiced pork mixture that defies description (but has won these dumplings several Best of Denver nods). There’s also an emphasis on meats that you can order in a variety of preparations and combos. And if you’d like to go veggie-only, the fried-tofu entrees are definite winners. The dining room is large even if the decor is nothing special, and the kitchen was renovated in 2013, so the food comes out faster than ever. That’s good to know if you crave these dumplings on the go.
