Chinese food is a relatively new type of cuisine in America.

When it comes to Chinese food, there are few places in America where you can actually find authentic cuisine —authentic Chinese food consists of dishes like scallion pancakes and Peking duck. Fortunately for all of the Chinese-inspired restaurants in America, we're not exactly begging for authentic Chinese and are more than happy to stick with rangoons and orange chicken.

Chinese food is a relatively new type of cuisine in America, not becoming widely popular until the early 1900s. Since then, however, it has taken off and is today one of the most popular ethnic cuisines in America.

If you're in the mood for some fried rice and dumplings, here are 15 mighty independent Chinese restaurants in Denver that are sure to delight.
