Chino Latino's Global Meat Party = cheap, meaty eats

Further adding to its reputation as a meat market, Chino Latino's running a new special they're calling Manuel Hung's Global Meat Party from 4:30-6:30 p.m. daily in the dining room and bar. Similar to Chino's much-loved late-night happy hour, the Global Meat Party offers rock-bottom pricing on better-than-your-average bar fare. Here's the deal:
The GMP offers a choice of any 3 of the following dishes for $12:

* Chino Latino's legendary Chinese BBQ Ribs - with 5 spice honey glaze
* Jerked Shrimp Skewers - in a spicy Jamaican marinade
* Muay Thai Wings - tossed in Thai chile sauce and served with cilantro yogurt
* Grilled Elote - fire-grilled corn on the cob
* Kalbi Short Ribs - traditional Korean short ribs in a sweet soy glaze
* Spicy Chorizo Sausage - with peppers and onions

The menu will change seasonally and according to market availability. A selection of tap beers are offered at happy hour pricing, too. It remains to be seen if Chino's crowds will wane a bit as its fans check out the new Il Gatto across the street, or if specials like these will keep both places packed.
