We were promised a special meal by our host ....and we left completely impressed.

The four of us selected the 'tasting menu' to experience the full range that Xixa promises - a fusion of Asian and Latin American foods. And Xixa delivered!

The tasting menu ultimately included twelve separate dishes to be shared - typically small or, well, just a taste. Cumulatively, they proved to be totally satisfying for each of us.

Just the next day (for this review, sorry) the many dishes are a veritable blur of plates and amazing tastes.

The twelve plates included: a 'deconstructed chips and dip' - a morsel of a tomato and masa; spicy and caramelized carrots; a lettuce wrap/taco with smoked duck and salsas; smoked venison with sweet spices; chicken liver pate in a sopapilla; grilled Brussels Sprouts leaves; bone marrow; spicy flan; and more.

Every dish was creative, very flavorful in new ways, beautiful, and presented to share.

The price was a 'steal' for value delivered and received.
