any decent chinese dim sum in denver??
hope to find places that prepare from scratch rather than warming up pre made, frozen.
Lots of good dim sum here. Star Kitchen is probably generally regarded as the best, but Empress Seafood and King's Land (also on South Federal) are also good, and New Port (in Broomfield) is also solid. All made fresh daily, I believe.
I've heard that Lee Yuan in Boulder also has a somewhat unique Taiwanese dim sum menu (only on weekend mornings). Never been myself, but I'm curious to try it.
Lao Wang is awesome, but I personally wouldn't call them "dim sum" since they don't do carts and really only do a few dumplings and noodles. But the dumplings and noodles are some of the best anywhere, so definitely worth a visit as long as you're not expecting dim sum specifically.
We also think that Star Kitchen (2917 W. Mississippi Ave., Denver, tel. 303-936-0089) is very good, has roving carts and has a nice buzz to it during dim sum time.
would have to agree with the star kitchen recommendations. empress would be my number two.
