Great freebie for adventurous foodies.
Early in September, we went to Aurora to have our passports renewed. We ended up grabbing lunch at Sam’s Number 3, because while we knew the city has lots of interesting restaurants, we didn’t know where — in relation to the passport office — to find them. I know I had a pocket guide to Aurora’s myriad ethnic eateries but couldn’t find it.
Since then, the second edition of “YUM Aurora” has come out. Like the first published two years earlier, it features independent ethnic restaurants from African to Vietnamese, plus ethnic markets. Not a single Taco Bell, Olive Garden or other chain among them. Thankfully.
This edition was assembled and written by John Lehndorff, who has double credentials for this project. He has written about food for several Front Range newspapers, including the Boulder Daily Camera and the late Rocky Mountain News, and also did a tour as editor of the Aurora Sentinel, so he knows food and restaurants and the city.
