Tu Tambien?

Sometimes signing up for updates from the restaurants where you hang out actually pays off! Sunday was the day for my friends and I to cash in on the free Happy Hour that Tambien shot my way. Yup, free food and happy hour priced drinks for all my guests. Can't beat that!

We were served a couple of platters of sopes, tamales, quesadillas and empanadas. I LOVE the sopes at Tambien and Mezcal. I was also pleasantly suprised with the tamales; I'll have to get an order of those next time. Add to all that some cheap PBR and Tecate and the evening is set. Thanks to Erin and Lauli at Tambien for hooking us up.

Denver's Top 25

5280 published a nice list of 25 top restaurants in the Denver area. Agree with many, I'll have to try the rest!

Check it out: 5280 Top 25

Celestial Bakery - Heavenly!

For days when you want to take your dim sum to-go, try the Celestial Bakery in the Asian center just south of Alameda and Federal.

They have beautiful baked goods and duck. We love to pick-up some coconut buns, bbq pork buns, lotus and bean curd buns, etc. You can grab a whole cooked duck for about $18 and a bag of steamed buns. Heat them up, chop up some scallions, add a bit of Hoison sauce and you have dinner!
