Guess where I'm eating?

All I'm going to say is that the chef-owner of this Chinese restaurant, whose name is none of your business (for now), likes to clutter your table with edible gifts long before you've had a chance to glance at the menu -- an eight-page syllabus that doesn't include any of the dishes that you see in the above photo (just in case you thought you'd try to cheat).

I have no idea if the kitchen delivers the same culinary gifts each day, but when I had lunch here earlier this week, our server brought us a cucumber salad with red peppers and cloves of raw garlic; mung beans with chile paste; daikon radishes soaked in soy and sesame oil; and carrots with kao fu, a spongy wheat gluten.

If you know where I'm eating, you can go get your own...

Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
