Fodor’s Expert Review
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 a breakfast quesadilla stuffed with black beans, cheese, and sour cream. 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.
