Flower Pepper

Denver

A tiny counter order restaurant, Flower Pepper commands a strong following on the strength of its authentic Chinese dishes alone, whose breadth of flavors attempts to span the entire country. On the menu, you'll find everything from Beijing-aspiring cold noodles, to pork-stuffed dumplings from northern China. And though the white walls of this narrow seating area are void of any decorations, large portions and affordable prices make this spot worth the drive.
