Rendang in Denver

Who knew I'd come all the way to Denver to eat the most delicious rendang. The plane touched down at little after 5 pm & my son and his wife whisked us from the airport..."To somewhere special"...boy they weren't exaggerating!

We walked into the simple restaurant; it was wedged somewhere inbetween a quiznos and I vaguely remember a Jamba Juice around. My husband- a true blue Malaysian- glanced at me like "are they serious??"...but once we started eating the food at Jaya Asian Grill there were no more looks, glances or anything of a kind. We were too busy enjoying the delicious food!

What a great start to our time here in Denver, Colorado. Now if my grandbaby would hurry up and make his/her appearance...well, I think my time here would be just perfect! 

*Thanks to  "just call me 'A'" for catching my incorrect name of the restaurant- it is JAYA and not RAYA as I had stated :)

  6. Haddock- the first picture is taken at Red Rocks, Colorado- which is just around the corner from where I am.

    Arealblogger- thanks for your kind support :) I saw this message also on the other post.

  7. where did my comment on this disappear?

    btw, I think it's called Jaya Asian grill..unless I'm mistaken.

    did check this out online and have asked FAB to head there for dinner :)...so as I write this he is trying out the place.

    what is that yummy looking dish called?

  8. "A" - oops- thanks for the correction- you are correct, it is "Jaya" and not "raya"- the dish in the pic is 'Rendang'-- oh sooo delicious. However their other dishes are equally lovely- the Kway Teoh is very nice (if you like noodles)- let me know what your hubby thinks.

  9. I hope you had a nice time in Denver. It is one of the finest tourist destinations I have ever heard of. The food looks to be tasty from its appearance only. I think you enjoyed the food in Jaya. Bye.

  10. Peter- Thank you for your kind comment. Yes Denver was amazing. The food was beyond delicious.

    Do you have a blog? If so- please direct me to it- as I would love to visit it.

  11. Anjuli,

    Thanks for the tip! It's always nice to discover somewhere new in Denver to eat... ;-)

  12. Ron- glad to help you discover a new place to eat in Denver. Tried to find your blog- but just came upon a dead end. Thank you for visiting.

  13. Ron- silly me- I realize my mistake- I had already been to your blog. http://blogsaladblog.com/ is a great blog- I look forward to visiting it more in the future.
