Keep Westword Free

Yum! Aurora releases a guide to the city's ethnic, locally owned eateries

Westword caught some sh*t for our Sh*t People From Denver Say video, especially from readers who thought we omitted a few key catchphrases. So we compiled a list of sh*t our video should have said, including this line submitted by a reader: "All the good ethnic food is in Aurora."

Now Denver's upstart neighbor to the east has made it easy to find all that ethnic food with Yum, its new guide that lists over 150 restaurants -- all ethnic, all locally owned.

It was compiled by freelance food writer Rebecca Caro and produced by the city and its new tourism organization, Visit Aurora. (For more on Visit Aurora -- and why the city thinks you should -- read this week's cover story, "Wish You Were Here!")

Yum will be available at all Aurora libraries, recreation centers, hotels, motels and golf- course pro shops. You can also pick up a copy at the Aurora History Museum and the Aurora Fox Arts Center. The guide was inserted into the Denver Post's YourHub today, and will be distributed inside the Aurora Sentinel next week. You can also get a copy mailed to you if you e-mail access@auroragov.org or call 303-739-7000. Or just check it out below!

Yum, A Guide to Ethnic Eateries

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.
