China Gourmet has been in Boulder for at least 20 years, in this same exact spot. After a long hiatus, I started going here again. They are always busy at dinner with a large take out crowd. This is a very casual, order at the counter establishment. I always get the sweet and sour crispy fried shrimp-lately it has not been consistently prepared-sometimes the peppers and carrots are much fresher than at other times. The shrimp batter can be a bit soggy or not, I think it is a better dish to eat in than try to take on a 20 minute drive across town. The sweet and sour sauce is delicious. The fortune cookies are crispy and delicious but they don't always add one to my order so make sure and ask for one. I need to try something different here. On cold nights the main interior of the restaurant can be drafty with two doors opening and shutting. Wine in small bottles and beer for purchase. On a recent visit, I noticed a back dining room, almost hidden from view that would be much warmer to eat in. The restroom could be a bit cleaner but it doesn't seem to stop people from coming here. This place seems to be a staple in Boulder. I almost always see someone I know here. Right next to Lucky's in north Boulder. Generous portions, good prices.
