This Week On Denver’s Dining Scene:

  • 🍡 Forget the freezer-aisle mochi — Taeko-san Takeout is doling out the hand-made, gourmet stuff. [Westword]
  • There’s still no opening date for Casa Bonita. But there IS this Casa Bonita-themed beer you can sip on at WestFax Brewing next door. [Denver Post 🔒]
  • 🦬 Rocky Mountain oysters — I know you all have opinions, and I want to hear them! 👈
  • 🍽️ The owners of Tocabe, An American Indian Eatery, have decided to close their restaurant and shift focus to their online marketplace for Indigenous ingredients and their meal-delivery program serving Native American tribes. [Denver Post 🔒]
  • 🌮 Attention taco freaks: Fan-favorite food truck Kiké’s Red Tacos opened its official brick-and-mortar location in North Denver yesterday! [Instagram]
  • 🥯 Call Your Mother Deli, a Washington, D.C., bagel staple, made its Denver-side debut last week. (I have it on good authority that the smoked salmon schmear is where it’s at.) [Denver Post 🔒]
  • 🤤 There are a TON of tasty food events happening this weekend. I think Lamb Jam Restaurant Month sounds especially delicious. [Westword]
