Expect Japanese-Mexican fusion food with rolls, ceviche, taco-makis, robatas, healthy bowls, grilled fish, meat, and veggie dishes – all served with south pacific inspired cocktails. Expect to be met with flavour from destinations like Malibu, Palm Springs, Cabo, and Acapulco. A great date spot or for dinner with the girls.
