Star Kitchen just opened a few months ago, but it opened with a pedigree straight from Rocky Mountain dim sum Valhalla: The owner, Jong Ng, is the former chef at Super Star Asian, former undisputed best dim sum in town.

For those of you more into the Vietnamese side of Denver's Asian food community, I also have the behind-the-scenes story of what went down at the former Ha Noi Pho (now Can Tho Pho) and how this city might finally be getting a dose of South Vietnamese food to balance out all the fine examples we have of Central and Highland grub.
