Though the name may imply an Asian flair, what you'll find here is a fun and fashionable South American vibe. It seems that Peruvian cuisine has been the food du jour for some time now, and here it takes on its own comfort food twist. And everything on the menu is comfortingly affordable, too. Start off with some cheesy nachos; how about add to that a side of guacamole and a small taco or two. The mains are a smoked salmon steak and ceviches,but the house specialty of basted, bbq short ribs will have you demanding a second order, they are so good. Maracuja - aka passion fruit - is another featured player on the menu here and their tiramisu maracuja is pretty much another raison d'etre to keep coming back. Unless you're a wine geek; you might overlook the wine list which would be a mistake. Even the bottles of wine here are ever so sweet to your pocketbook, with some coming in at the same price of a cocktail in a high-end hotel bar. Yes, French wine!
- Best Value: "Week days, lunch and dinner this place is packed. Weekends, too. But the casual atmosphere, the good (affordable!) food and the laid back vibe of the servers make it worth the wait. It's also in a great location, just a hop skip from Paris' 'foodie street', Montorgueil. I would say any of the appetizers, the short ribs and the passion fruit tiramisu are all sure-fire winners. And their quinoa salad is a vegetarian diner's love fest."
- Recommended as Best Value Because: hen we think of food from Latin America the tendency is to lump it all together with 'Mexican.' But here you have some nice Peruvian and Asian-influence twists.
