If you’ve been around Denver and you love dim sum, you don’t need Michelle Kwan to tell you that Super Star Asian Cuisine has some of the best dim sum in town.

Located in the newly remodeled Alameda Square, Super Star and the surrounding businesses have been given a much needed makeover. Despite its exterior improvements, inside Super Star still serves its tasty dim sum, but that’s not what we’re here for. Along with the new look comes two new head chefs bringing in a revamped menu filled with new tasty Chinese dishes.

The chef’s new dishes were presented alongside beautiful sculptures made of fruits and vegetables. The Cantaloupe Seafood Stir-Fry was plated in a hallowed out cantaloupe which sat next to a radish bird perched on top of a carrot tree. The sweetness of the cantaloupe married perfectly with the mix of seafood delivering a sweet and savory taste. Similarly, the Pineapple Fried Rice was uniquely served inside a fresh pineapple. The French-style Steak was presented with a beautiful bouquet of flowers made of vegetables. And yes, the food did taste as good as it looked.

Not to take away from the delicious Chinese specialities, but the chef’s knife work seemed to be the star of the show. It was hard to believe these sculptures were made out of food meant to be eaten. Even something as ordinary as the Sesame Chicken was made extraordinary by plating it inside a colorful array of thinly sliced fruits and vegetables.

In fact, almost every dish had a sculpture next it, showcasing Super Star’s ability to now cater weddings and banquets with the addition of its talented chefs. In the coming months, additional remodeling will increase the restaurant’s space allowing it to seat more than 250 banquet-style.

Although Super Star will continue to be known for its top-notch dim sum, the restaurant will now be a contender for local organizations and happy couples to host their special and large dinner events.
