Yum Yum Spice opened in the DU neighborhood in late 2015, catering to the school’s population of Chinese students. One "yum" just isn't enough for the Sichuan-style offerings at this little spot; on a recent visit, almost every table sported a brimming hot pot or dry pot bubbling atop a Sterno burner and packed with uncommon proteins like duck head, frog or several choices of offal (standard meats are available for the less adventurous). Crank up the numbing heat — that's customizable, too — for a bold dose of tingly, buzzing Sichuan peppercorns that balance fiery red chiles. This is one of the few true regional Chinese specialties available in the Mile High City, a rare glimpse of a broad cuisine that we see only a sliver of here in the States.
