Denver – the food

If there’s one thing Denver does well, it’s breakfast. And everywhere you go the specialty seems to be Eggs Benedict. Regular Benedict, crab cakes Benedict, and this one that I tried at DJ’s Berkeley Cafe, California Benedict. I pronounced it awesome. Also, high praise for a restaurant that gives you both breakfast potatoes and fruit, instead of forcing you to choose between them.

The morning before we left we also ventured to Snooze, a great (and very busy) restaurant in LoDo. To be honest, I liked the decor better than my breakfast scramble (hello chefs, do not put 1/4 cup of raw onions into anything!), but Mike’s banana pancakes were pretty awesome.

In Boulder I was excited to go back to the Hungry Toad, which was one of my favorite restaurants in my old neighborhood. I always got the Cajun fettucine alfredo, which is something I would never usually order, but it is so good there. And it’s just generally a great neighborhood pub type of restaurant.

Back in Denver and despite the rainy weather, we also ventured to Liks Ice Cream (a mere couple of blocks from our host’s apartment) for some amazing waffle cones.

I think we just scratched the surface of the restaurant scene, though, so I’m pretty sure we’re gonna have to go back and continue eating our way through Denver.
