Andy's Kitchen Asian Express is worth a risky left on Federal

In A Federal Case, I'll be eating my way up Federal Boulevard -- south to north -- within Denver city limits. I'll be skipping the national chains and per-scoop Chinese joints, but otherwise I'll report from every vinyl booth, walk-up window and bar stool where food is served. Here's the report on my fourth stop.... It's pretty difficult to get to Andy's Kitchen Asian Express from my house without making a left turn onto Federal Boulevard, or without making a left turn from Federal into Andy's parking lot. The reason this is important is because making left turns onto or off Federal is an art form --a skill that must be observed in all its variations before it can be attempted, much less mastered.
