There are a lot of popular dishes at Chinese restaurants in Denver, and all around for that matter. You’d be hard pressed to find someone who has never eaten sweet and sour pork, chow mein, and sesame chicken. We keep coming back to these favorites because they are delicious and satisfying. But do you ever feel like trying something different? Here’s a quick list of must try dishes at Chinese restaurants in Denver. You might not have been ordering them, but you should definitely start!
Chow Fun – Chow mein (or lo mein) is definitely the go-to noodle dish of choice for many, but chow fun is a delicious departure. Made with wide rice noodles and a lightly sweetened soy-based sauce, it also typically contains with beef.
Ma Po Tofu – This classic Sichuan spicy dish contains tofu, but it’s made with meat eaters in mind. This is because it is also made with meat, usually beef or pork. At Uncle Joe’s we call it Hot Wife’s Tofu, and you can find out why on this blog post.
Scallion Pancake – For Americans pancakes are enjoyed at breakfast in stacks with butter and maple syrup. They’re just not something we think should contain onions. Leave your ideas behind because scallion pancakes are worth a try. These unleavened flatbreads are made by folding the dough with scallions and a light brushing of oil in between the layers. After being fried in a skillet the resulting pancake is crispy, chewy, savory and delicious!
