Reader: Avoid Hipsters When Looking for Good Ethnic Food in Denver

Hipsters are popping up all over the place, including in discussions of two recent Food stories: our report on the opening of Chuey Fu's Latin-Asian Grub, and our list of the Ten Best Falafel Spots in Denver. First stop: Santa Fe Drive, where Chuey Fu's just landed — and one reader left a few years ago. Says Brian:

So now the hipster food offering move in. Three years after I left the neighborhood. #trendsetter

While another reader's suggestion focuses on falafel, it's useful for many kinds of food. Says Scott: 

Simple rule to follow, if it's full of hipsters, probably not the real deal. If it is full people of the related ethnic group, give it a go. We have plenty of good ethnic food, you just need to get out of your safe little neighborhoods.

What's your favorite ethnic spot? Where do you go when you want to avoid hipsters?
