The dragon above the rustic door announces this is no typical cantina. Instead chef and cookbook author Isabel Cruz has blended Asian and Latin fair with a healthy outlook that suits her youthful Pacific Beach clientele. Start the day with refreshing pineapple-orange-kale juice and a good-for-you egg white scramble. Or indulge Mexican cravings with bowl piled high with carnitas, crisp potatoes, black beans, and spicy sauces. Lunch options include tortas, tacos, and the “Buddha Bowl” of vegetables in a coconut milk and lemongrass broth. For dinner, there’s a vegetarian Asian grill, along with house-made tamales and grilled salmon. Calorie counting stops though for desserts like the decadent flourless chocolate cake and rich coconut flan.
