My first choice is still Chez Thuy for their pho or noodle bowls with grilled meats and eggrolls. Last night we had a mediocre meal from Moongate Asian Bistro between 16th and 17th. I had great tempura udon soup there one night, we've had good thai and vietnamese dishes there, and the first night we went the food was excellent. Last night we ate lo mein and sesame chicken; after the ultimate in sesame chicken at Orchid Pavilion (a great lunch bargain) or at Ping's Favorite, the stuff from Moongate turned out to be a poor second, especially after being carried home. Speaking of Ping's Favorite, we went there today and I split with my daughter a fabulous crispy fish in chef's special sauce lunch entree. My friend had what looked like a great asparagus and shrimp in a clear sauce. The egg drop soup was nicely sesame-laced. All was very good and served pleasantly. Sad we were the only ones in there, but it was 3:30 pm. (Places like Subway, Taco Bell, Wendy's and Qdoba always seem busy.) But China Gourmet has fallen off our list and I'm wondering if I'm overlooking some other local Asian gem around Boulder. My friend led me to Khow Thai, and I'm enjoying their green curry. Gemini Thai is nice, too. But if you know anything I don't, do dish here. And I haven't even gotten started on good sushi in Boulder (although I do think Tora has the last word).
