Recently, we dined at China Gourmet in Silverthorne, a restaurant we have eaten at several times over the years. The new owners, relatives of the previous hardworking owner, are doing an excellent job of running this restaurant. It is the kind of restaurant that, if you've dined there, you'll return. Often my husband and I fall into a routine at certain restaurant, ordering the same, favorite entree time and again. This time, we tried different dishes and were immediately impressed with the excellent quality of food. We had the Chicken and Shrimp in Black Bean Sauce, arriving in ample amounts with large chucks of peppers, carrots, onion along with the chicken and shrimp. We were blown away by the spicy, flavorful, sauce atop everything that tasted fresh cut from the garden. To that, the copious amount of chicken and shrimp, were tender ad well suited to the bean sauce. Pork Fried Rice, hardly a dish you might expect to be extra-ordinary, arrived with fresh vegetables and large pieces if pork all prepared to perfection. The young couple who own and run the place are always on hand, preparing food and making sure that your dish arrives to your liking. All the servers are friendly and efficient and the place is immaculate. Our usual stand-by's, that we normally order, will take a bit of a back seat as we're eager to try many of their other specialties. I think they have a little gold mine here. Several other tables were filled as we left, and you could hear comments of patrons approving the dishes. We have many fine restaurants in Summit County; Keystone has several stand-outs along with the highly ranked Food Hedz and Vinny's in Frisco. China Gourmet is certainly the best Chinese in the county and I'd rate it right near the top of TripAdvisor for their excellent preparation of fresh food. Did I mention how reasonable the prices are? Amazing to have ample amounts of fresh ingredients at reasonable prices! It's not a fancy place, but a really delicious dining spot!
