The convivial pleasure of picking away at a whole fried fish is one of the world’s great dining pleasures.
At Chino Latino, crisp-as-potato-chips fish arrives in a silver vessel. Beneath you’ll find an exquisite hot and sour broth singing with tamarind. The flavors from the sauce meld with the tender flesh, tinged with the essence of the sea.
Only chopsticks will do for this maneuver. Begin by poking away at the top for a crispy bit. Then plunge beneath for a saucy bit. Pause to take a big swig of your beer and let your buddy have a go. Repeat.
