What do you think is the most popular style of cuisine in Denver? People here really love Mexican food and there are a lot of taco places. We love Italian cuisine in Denver too. And you can’t go wrong with New American, especially when it has a local focus. But how popular is Asian food in Denver?
Denver has a strong culinary scene; the people here love to dine out and they have an adventurous appetite. One only has to look the lists of the most popular restaurants in town to see that we love a wide variety of cuisines, including Asian food, in Denver.
According to an article by the Huffington Post, Yelp determined the most popular cuisines by state and how they stack up against the national average. Can you guess what they found for Colorado? They determined that gluten free food was the most popular, 149% higher than the national average. Coming in second was Vietnamese (65% higher) and Mexican (55% higher) took third place.
Are you surprised by these findings? Are you shocked that Vietnamese actually ranked above Mexican food? Given these findings it safe to say that Asian food in Denver is very popular for sure, but not more so than gluten free food apparently.
