Named after, “Ma Ma” herself, Zoe Ma Ma has officially conquered and topped my list of dumplings. My love for the food was first sparked by Vanessa’s on the Lower East Side this past spring. I truly thought that nothing could beat the New York City shop because it is NYC after all (aka food mecca). I remember travelling to visit my sister in Boulder a few years ago, and she pointed out one of her favorite restaurants just off of the Pearl Street mall. While I admit to forgetting about how delicious Zoe Ma Ma was in Boulder, I was reminded this last weekend — Zoe Ma Ma has arrived in Denver!
I was walking home from the Rockies last home season game towards the light rail and decided to walk around the south side of Union Station and spotted it. After going in and revisiting the menu, my favorites remain:
Za Jiang Mian (noodle dish)
Ma Ma’s Chicken Noodle Soup
More importantly, Zoe Ma Ma is not just about the food, it’s about the experience! I have been meaning to post about the rebuttal of Union Station because it is has truly sprouted into a must- see Denver destination. Zoe Ma Ma’s location is perfect for exploring LODO. I recommend just going in and looking around Union Station. There is truly no need to buy anything inside, just go and appreciate the beautiful architecture! If you are feeling the need to top off your meal, Milkbox Ice Cream inside Union Station is great too. Personally, I love just walking around the neighborhood. Try exploring Wynkoop and Wazee Street by foot, or if there is another baseball game, a bike chariot is definitely an unforgettable experience too.
