The Ten Best Asian Noodle Houses in Denver
Uncle Joe’s noodle slate may be small, but what’s there is worth a foray into the bustling heart of downtown. Recipes come from China’s island city and feature layered flavors of hard-to-come-by sauces and wok hai — that special something added by a searing-hot and well-seasoned pan. Grab a seat at the bar for some clever cocktails and a plate of something far from standard, overly sweetened takeout fare.
What to order: Uncle Joe’s was founded in Hong Kong (ours is only the second in the world), and the Law family (which owns both) brings back dried scallops to make its own XO sauce in-house — which is then added to a shrimp-and-scallop dish with tight coils of noodles called “rice pillows.” Try it and thank us later.
