International Cuisine Around DU

Welcome back, DU!

Classes are about to start and since we all have to quarantine for a while, why not enjoy this time to explore diverse flavors from around the world?

Here at International Admissions, we have compiled a list of restaurants with an international cuisine focus so we can all add some “spice” to our time at home. We chose local restaurants as a way to experience an authentic cuisine and support our local business. All restaurants have the option to “pick up” or deliver and websites with their menu and pictures of these amazing dishes!

Below is our list, in no certain order, and suggestions for dishes to try that our team recommends:

Maria Empanada

Our Choice: Chicken Chimichurri Empanada

Addresses:  1298 South Broadway Ave, Denver, CO, 80210 and 2501 Dallas Street,
Aurora, CO 80010

Aroma do Brazil

Even if not all “combo” options of mention that you can choose “side of your choice”, it is worth asking if it is possible to trade some items. Try the fried yucca or the chicken salad – the additional cost is worth it!

Our Choice: Combo 5

Address: 10722 East Iliff Avenue, Aurora, CO, 80014

The Bronze Empire

Our Choice: Bamboo Shrimp Paste

Address: 1591 S Colorado Blvd, Denver, CO, 80222

Sushi Den

The best sushi in Denver, and it’s right by campus!

Our Choice: Sushi Dinner

Address: 1487 South Pearl St, Denver, CO, 80210.

Euro Crepes & Bistro

Our Choice: I-am Sterdam

Address: 1842 S Broadway #103, Denver, CO,80210.

Little Brazil

This restaurant is favorite of our Brazilian students, and though it is a little further from DU the trip is worth it.

Our Choice: Black Bean Stew

Address: 10081 West 26th Avenue, Wheat Ridge, CO, 80215

Cafe de France

Our Choice: Chef’s Pride and Joy

Address: 2730 S Colorado Blvd #19, Denver, CO, 80222.


This is a popular restaurant with DU students. It is located right across the street from DU’s University Technology Services and the Morgridge College of Education.

Address: 2100 S High St, Denver, CO, 80210.

Namaste India

There are many Indian restaurants around campus and in Denver, but this is the one most recommended by Indian students. It may be farther away from campus, but like Little Brazil (above) the trip is worth the effort!

Our Choice: Lamb Rogan Josh
