Biju's Little Curry Shop Denver

Biju’s Little Curry Shop

Sandwiched between Ballpark and RiNo, Biju is the perfect gateway to the East. Great curry, local craft beverages, fair prices and finicky hours.

Tengu Denver


Simple straight-forward ramen spot.  Japanese beers, sake and communal seating. There is more than meets the eye here, venture down the understated hallway to discover an underground bar and lounge. Tengu is a bit tricky to find as they have a discrete door and sign nestled in the Industry complex.

Chop Shop Denver

chop shop

Chop Shop is an experimental concept borne from a partnership between a first class Denver chef and a local wine merchant. With a sililar feel to Mod Market. In an unlikely location on East Colfax, this quick serve restaurant has easily established itself as one of the top three in the category. They continually release new and seasonal items like the bacon wrapped meatloaf and blueberry margaritas, and everything we tried on our visit was EXTREMELY delicious if not a bit pricey.



BluNozer coffee and pastry shop is a hidden gem nestled into the back corner of an unassuming strip mall on Ivy and Colfax. The inside of this quaint and inviting spot is a mix between steampunk, an east coast antique shop, and my grandmothers rec room.
You will become an instant part of the family as sisters/co owners Dorothty and Della meticulously explain the expansive menu of fresh home baked goods. Highly recommend the bread pudding with carmel sauce.




Cho 77 is the brand new more reasonably priced little brother of downtown’s Cholon bistro. Expect to wait a bit for your table because the culinary adventure is that well crafted. The lamb bacon relish roti pizza apetizer is pictured and the coconut curry had depth and umami that is difficult to find outside Thailand.

We grant the best waffle award to Crema Coffee. Their nutty, pumpkin creamy and yet crisp waffle set the standard.
