BONUS: Our review of Hop Alley

Two months ago, we capped off our first season with an episode about the hot new restaurant Hop Alley and its namesake, Denver’s old Chinatown. For this bonus episode, we invited food journalist Laura Shunk to help us do a proper review of the restaurant.

Of course, we put the Changing Denver spin on it, so it’s a little different from what you might expect.

The rave reviews of Hop Alley keep pouring in. 5280 just named it the best restaurant in Denver on its annual list of the top 25!

Our theme song is “Minnow” by Felix Fast4ward.
