Chino Latino

Saturday I had dinner at Chino Latino. Located in Uptown, this unique Minneapolis restaurant is everything I want when I go out to eat.

The first thing you notice about the restaurant is the exterior of the building, which is covered in shiny, little, reflective circles. The door, which is slightly hidden and confusing, leads to the red-lit entrance of the main level dining. While being walked to my table, there were people taking saki bombs and a lit-up clear bar buzzing with people enjoying their night-off. The atmosphere is fun, lively and inviting while the food is incredibly delicious and reasonably priced.

The menu though, is what I love most about Chino Latino. There are dishes inspired from both Chinese and Latin foods. Anything from sushi to tacos is on this elaborate menu. Some favorite of mine include the salty squid (calamari) and the coconut curry shrimp.

So make a note of it, next date night or night out with the girls, Chino Latino will be just what you need for a fun time out.
