Fodor's Review

The best of Thai and Japanese cuisine unite under one roof at Coco Asian Bistro & Bar, a locally famous gastronomic gem in a jazzy Fort Lauderdale strip mall. Chef Mike Ponluang's expansive menu spans authentic Asian to pan-Asian flavors more suited to the American palate to downright avant-garde interpretations of Asian cuisine. You'll never go wrong with the traditional pad thai or the variety of classic curries; but there are also dishes like the Emerald Scallops, a decadent marriage of diver scallops, asparagus, and portobello mushrooms in a green curry, as well as the off-the-menu lobster pad thai served in the shell. The oversize sushi rolls are beautifully crafted, often mingling at least five flavors, fostering utter sushitopia. Try, for example, Mike's Roll, a taste explosion of tuna, spinach, avocado, tempura flakes, and kampyo rolled in sweet, black, sticky rice and served with sweet chili sauce for dipping. The artisan cocktails are also excellent; don't leave without having a lycheetini or two!
