The clear fusion with Asian cuisine, gives the dishes an interesting finish.
You'll find delicious "mash-ups" in the menu and exotic dishes like: duck empanadas, shredded duck, scallions, foie gras, cognac ($8), pork chop marinated in coconut milk and served with a thai spice chimichurri sauce ($24), mezcal marinated shrimp, red cabbage and crisp purple potatoes ($11) and other amazing creations!
