flavors, the Chef promises to make your evening unforgettable.

This restaurant offers occasionally brilliant dishes with much attention to detail
from the chef. We were extremely excited about their menu, and got very lucky because Chef Smith sent us an amazing selection of great dishes, and now I
know why the restaurant was so busy.
Spicy Ahi Tartar with Scallions, Red Pepper, Coconut Milk and Taro Chips
We started with a Spicy Ahi Tartar, with sashimi grade ahi, scallions, red pepper, coconut milk and taro chips, but Chef Smith sent us her version of Tuna
Tartar in 3 ways, which were simply delicious. You must try to
experience the taste of this appetizer.
Vegetarian Pot Stickers
Then we got the fried vegetarian pot stickers with plum ginger sauce, delicious and very crispy, I love this one, then Chef Smith sent us a sampler of a delicious Tortilla Soup, followed by the Chilled Shrimp Martini, that was also awesome!
