Briargate’s Shangri-La, Colorado Springs 

 

Did you know that today is National Chinese Almond Cookie Day? AR celebrity, Kathy Streib shares a cute story about these sweet morsels in her blog post -  http://activerain.com/blogsview/3686857/national-chinese-almond-cookie-day-is-april-9-or-be-careful-what-you-wish-for-

 

What’s your favorite Chinese place? My family and I have always agreed on this answer. Shangri-La, aptly named, truly is Briargate's best Chinese restaurant. Shangri-La’s delectable menu and impeccable service has kept us coming back for close to a decade.

 We’re greeted at the front doors as if we were Norm. Friendly and eager to make sure our dining experience meets our expectations, they always exceed them.

 

Our predictability is embarrassingly so. The owners and staff know both my husband’s and I’s drink orders and usually serve our favorite crab wontons or pot stickers within minutes of us being seated. Ample portions perfect for sharing, hot fresh entrees and lots of green tea with delicious almond cookies to top off our tummies!

 

Briargate residents are like townies here. Even when I just stop in to grab a take-out order I see a familiar face.

 

Located at 8850 N. Union Blvd., Colorado Springs, CO 80920 (719)495-1738 in the Albertson’s shopping center at Union and Research.

Outstanding food, impeccable service and fair prices keep Shangri-La on our list of Colorado Springs’ top favorite restaurants.

Kim, as you can imagine, I love Chinese food-where else would I go every Christmas? Sounds like Shangri-La is a great one and those crab wontons-yummy!

hi Kim ~ Shangri-La sounds like they not only have the great food part down, but also fantastic service ... a winning combination for sure.  You're lucky to have a great Chinese restaurant near you!

Hi Ed, Briargate has a small town atmosphere without a square...I wish you much success this year as well!

Joanna, do you have a favorite in your area? We are often there over the holidays as well! They have a fat Budha statue decorated for whatever holiday is coming up - I need to take a pic of him. He had bunny ears on last time.

Good morning, President Maureen:) Yes, we appreciate it. Even when we lived in San Francisco's Marin county we were hard pressed to locate a good one within a 20 minute drive. The city had a fantastic selection, of course, but not convenient.

Hi Kim! 

I'm still missing your posts.  Maybe you will have more time now that the days are getting shorter. 

I hope that you have a great weekend.

How fun, you're like the gang on the old TV show, Cheers. :) I love Colorado and visit often - have a daughter in Denver. In fact, we're going to be there in the coming weeks - new baby due on Feb 20th. Can't wait.
