Westword's Description

Some of the best cooking in Denver comes from restaurants that are completely off the grid — those with generic names, facades as forgettable as a one-night stand, and featureless dining rooms with clashing color schemes. East Asia Garden is that kind of restaurant. You've whizzed by it on Broadway a dozen times, never giving it even a cursory glance. And that's a mistake, because it turns out the most amazing home-style, traditional Chinese food in the city. Here, among the usual suspects, are dishes like tofu with black eggs, pig's ears and cucumbers, cross bridge rice noodles (good luck finding those anywhere else in Denver) and Chongqing chicken, which is very much the food equivalent of a firecracker: a shovel of blistered, volatile fried chiles tangled with equal amounts of Sichuan peppercorns and cubes of fried chicken, hot enough to make your mouth numb for days. But the unadventurous have an out: Along with fried pig's liver, the menu includes benign dumplings.

    Don’t forget to give this hidden gem a second look as you’re driving down Broadway. Inside they’re cooking up some of the best Chinese food in town!

    Best Sesame Tofu and crab rangoon in the area.

    Food was okay, main problem I had no specialty drinks like other restaurants, so I asked for Plum Wine and they didn't even have that.

  • Eryn R. on 04/17/11

    Try the seasame chicken, crab rangoons and fried rice. Yumm!

  • Marcus on 07/18/13

    Best authentic Northern Chinese food in Denver. Bring a friend that reads Chinese and order off the special menu.
