Good Korean taco's

Stopped by during the Uptown Art Festival for snacks & beverages. The Korean Taco's are great! Try to stop by whenever we are in Uptown.

Everything we had here was delicious, but the Kung Pao Chicken was out of this world. The menu is varied, fun, and easy to share dishes. The staff help each other out with everything, so you are never waiting for your server to come by with food or drinks. The only down side is that it is very loud, so... More

Every time I go I leave with my next trip planned! I LOVE the queso fundido- you just can't go wrong with it. Also, the pork belly steam buns are delicious- just melt in your mouth amazing. I read on here that someone wasn't impressed with the flandango, and I don't understand how you can't like flan-brownie-Carmel goodness. It's like... More

We ate here after many years of hearing about it, so we had high expectations. The menu is interesting and very creative, everything sounded great but the taste of every dish was slightly off for our taste. The three of us shared beef empanadas de Janeiro, pupu platter, nachos del sol. Service excellent, perfect margarita, coconut icecream dessert very good,... More

The vibe of this place is so amazing- great decor, energizing music, funky decorative accents. The variety of food leaves a person struggling to choose! We ended up getting the Buddha sized dessert and not only was it fabulously tasty it's presentation was over-the-top fun! I highly recommend eating here for a night out with friends or a funky date... More

This place is for those not worried about being in a crowded place. This place has a unique twist to it food and ambiance with the meshing of Asian and the unique flavors of the Caribbean, it's a visit you won't forget. From start to finish the energy in this place is high.

It's been too long since I returned to CL and food is pretty good (improved), price is fair, and good drinks. You may be pleasantly surprised with the taste and choices of Asian and Latin cuisine. Recommend as an Uptown area spot for dining and drinks.

I went to Chino Latino after a 4 year absence. This is a Latino/Asian fusion restaurant/bar. Little has changed in the restaurant since my last time but the menu has. All in all is it a very happening place, the bar is always busy. The food is excellent - though my title of Fusion Confusion was meant because it is... More

The ambiance is fun and it is pretty loud so don't plan on having an intimate dinner. It is great for groups with good food and drink selection. It's a great location in Uptown with plenty to do.

This place is about as vibrant as restaurants get. It's hopping all the time so a fair amount of noise, but there's still something kind of romantic about it. The service is fantastic, the drinks are interesting, and the food is really, really good. The paella was out of this world, and the mixed sushi platter was pretty delicious. You... More
