If you're a hot enough country, you're cool enough to have your cuisine represented at red-hot Chino Latino-Mexico, Thailand, Jamaica, Polynesia, Korea, take a bow, you're in! And if you're hot enough to sip powerful, fruity, yummy drinks in a dazzling sort of red-toned Blade Runner sequel of a restaurant, look no further than this two-level style palace. The best dishes on the ever-changing menu tend to be the oversize appetizers dubbed "little dishes to share": Look particularly for mussels, any sort of ceviche, and sushi-grade tuna preparations. Among the big dishes to share, which generally feed three or four people, standouts include the roast cuy, or guinea pig, (more in terms of sheer novelty than flavor, perhaps) and a carne asada do-it-yourself taco plate. Still hot? If the excellent sakes, top-shelf tequilas, first-rate rums, and abundant beer list haven't sated you, there's only one solution: Cool off with a three-flavor banana split the size of a Thanksgiving turkey.
