Tapas-style fusion dishes inspired by the cuisines of Spain, Mexico and South America are the signature offerings of regional restaurant group, Latin Asian Fusion. Adding to locations in Geneva, La Grange and West Chicago, the new restaurant at 132 N. Hale St., in Wheaton (630 480-0397) follows the same distinctive formula.
Small plates bursting with bold flavors begin with appetizers, including Al Ceviche — tilapia marinated in lime juice, red onions, cilantro, tomatoes, cilantro and guacamole. A fall favorite is the Ala Poblana, a creamy roasted pepper soup with queso fresco, sour cream, and potatoes. A salad of fresh mixed greens is spiced up with a mango and cucumber pico de gallo.
An inventive menu of tacos stars unexpected ingredients like Slagel farm pork belly as well as house-made chorizo, garlic shrimp or portabello mushrooms with pineapple. Larger plates include a shareable seafood paella, lamb braised in cactus leaves and served with warm tortillas, and a pan-seared lemon herb chicken in poblano sauce.
All meats are hormone free, poultry is grass fed, and produce is locally sourced and delivered fresh daily.
A fifth west suburban location for Altiro Latin Fusion is planned soon for Aurora.Edit Module
