A savory haven of fresh Asian-inspired fare for more than two decades, Jasmine Asian Cuisine tasks its experienced chefs with preparing an eclectic menu of cooked-to-order dishes crafted with organic veggies, choice cuts of meat, and oils bursting with antioxidants. Pu pu platters sate dithering diners with pintsize portions of delectable meats, seafood, wontons, and egg rolls ($5.95). An epic selection of chef's specialties, including the pepper mignon seasoned with peppercorns and topped with onions ($10.25), quell grumbling tummies before they bellow like Pavarotti after stubbing his big toe.
Celebrating seven years of service and flaunting freshly painted walls, Saigon Landing Restaurant reopened last year in Greenwood Village with its menu of fresh, heart-healthy Vietnamese cuisine intact. At both the Greenwood Village and Evergreen locations, an eclectic range of Eastern flavors abound, with lemongrass and curry anchoring plates piled with pork, chicken, seafood, or veggies. Outside, an American flag billows over a grassy border lined with vibrant foliage, fir trees, and a friendly giant tasked with blowing away approaching storm clouds.
Amid rough-hewn stone walls and exposed wooden rafters, Belvedere fills plates with traditional Polish entrees. Each pierogi’s pillowy pocket hides meat or cheese, and gouda stuffs a homemade polish sausage. Roasted duck is served on a mound of sweet red cabbage, and veal schnitzel arrives slathered in hunter’s sauce, which actual hunters cover themselves in to hide from their prey. Lunchtime covers tables with sandwiches that include bacon-wrapped chicken, sliced meatballs, and kielbasa with sauerkraut.
China Star maintains a speedy team of delivery drivers to fill homes with the warm aromas and comforting flavors of classic Chinese cuisine, whether it's tangles of egg noodles wound around juicy shrimp or seared pieces of pork buried in grains of fried rice. Chunks of chicken, beef, or tofu acquire stylish glazes of General Tso’s sauce, sesame sauce, or curried lime sauce, and Thai influences shine through in plates of pad thai, bowls of green and pineapple red curry, and the chefs' secret love of kickboxing.
