The addictive Latin-Asian food here has kept this restaurant-lounge sizzling for years on the Old City's dining scene—a “hipster hotspot” since before the term was invented. The décor with its mirrored, red-walled interior, outfitted with Shanghai lanterns and ornate curtains and furnishings, has a seductive power, just like the platos (plates), served here do. They measure somewhere between a tapa and a large appetizer portion in size and are best shared, about two per person. Ones to try include Peking duck nachos, Asian churrasco, amarillo (sweet plaintain) dumplings in citrus dipping sauce, tempura rock shrimp tacos, Peking duck, and Chino Latino lo mein with Puerto Rican chicharrones (fried chicken bites). There's also a full sushi bar and an ever-packed lounge area, for before dinner or after.
