Okay, so we have had a string of good luck finding great Sushi/Japanese restaurants in and around Denver over the past year. For a while, this was not the case. However, Edo Higan and Sushi Den were great. Now, we have another one to add to the list, and that’s Jing. I think this is technically an Asian fusion-style restaurant, but their rolls are absolutely amazing.
I had the snow crab dynamite roll, which was fantastic. The crab tasted very fresh. My wife had the Peking duck and our friend who joined us had the salmon. We were all satisfied with our meal choices. However, the dish we loved the most was an appetizer. The Shishito peppers were delicious with the bubu arare (rice pearls) and a flavorful spicy sauce. We all agreed that these were the best Shishito peppers ever. Of course, this was also the first time any of us tried them, so not much to compare yet.
If you don’t like spicy food, don’t worry about the Shishito peppers. They are not too bad. Of course, you may occasionally get an extra spicy one, so it’s a little like playing Russian Roulet. Also, I have a pretty high tolerance for spice. That being said, these peppers are pretty mild.
The service was great too and our waitress was very knowledgeable. The ambiance is nice too. If you are looking for a great spot to eat in the Denver area, check out Jing in Greenwood Village.
