Week in, week out, I get tired of eating sandwiches and salads for lunch. So when boredom hits, I head to Star Kitchen for a taste bud reawakening.
This lauded Chinese restaurant in southwest Denver serves dim sum all day, every day—and the carts piled with eats never stop coming.
That's only $1 per issue!
Play it safe with the savory, pork-stuffed siu mai (open-faced dumplings), lollipop-like fried shrimp ball on a sugarcane skewer, and sweet, baked barbecue pork buns. Or, get a little more adventurous and try the beef tripe with turnip, congee (rice porridge) with seafood, or the spicy tendon.
Either way, with more than 65 dim sum options, I never leave hungry—and I always leave inspired.
