Description

Remember the last time you cozied up for a home-cooked meal in your buddy's abuelas home in Venezuela? Of course you don't! But thanks to John Kunkel's latest culinary concept, Chica, you no longer have to feel bad about this gaping hole in your cultural literacy. Celebrity chef Lorena Garcia - the first Latina chef on the Las Vegas Strip - has managed to ramp up the heavenly tastes of Central and South America home cooking with inspired dishes that draw on meals from Mexico down to Argentina. Arepas and calamari fuego will whet your appetite for shrimp and quinoa cazuela, Brazilian beef tenderloin and asado negro braised short. Next up to entice your taste buds is the alcohol.

At Chica, even the booze is filled to the brim with culture. There's the Expat, for example, which is a Latin twist on the Manhattan, and Nazca Winter, Chica's version of the Peruvian pisco sour. Don't worry about being sophisticated, though. Nobody's going to judge you for ordering the Tamarind Guava Colada, a hand-shaken version of the piña colada with Appleton Estate Signature Blend rum, fresh lime, tamarind and coconut cream with guava nectar.  

No matter what you order, as long as you roll your r's you'll sound saucy and fit in just fine. ¡Salud!
