CHINA JADE

12203 E. Iliff Ave., Suite D • 303.755.8518 Lunch, dinner daily • Beer • $$ Skip the same old sweet-and-sour pork and focus instead on the real Chinese items from tofu with preserved egg to Tianjin-style pork buns. The Szechuan-style wontons are not your father’s cream cheese and “krab”-filled things. The rather delicate pasta envelopes filled with ground pork are drenched in red chile-infused oil. It tastes benign at first but warmth spreads rapidly across your face. Also memorable is the ziran-flavored lamb, which tastes more Middle Eastern than Asian.

GOLDEN WOK ASIAN RESTAURANT

15282 E. Hampden Ave. • 303.766.1489 goldenwokasian.com Lunch, dinner Mon.-Fri., dinner only Sat.-Sun. Full bar • $$$ Folks like to dress up a little to dine on white tablecloths at the Golden Wok. A warm contemporary dining room is centered around a large salt water aquarium. Despite the eatery’s name, the repertoire concentrates on well-made Chinese-American favorites with dishes like sweet and sour shrimp, beef with black bean sauce and Hunan-style sliced duck. Vegetarian selections include five spice tofu seasoned with fennel, cloves, cinnamon, star anise and Szechuan peppercorns. Golden Wok maintains a surprisingly large wine list to match special occasion treats like the lobster Cantonese.
