According to OnMilwaukee.com, Angel Velasquez didn't only look to his own Puerto Rican heritage when planning the menu for Kafe Kultura. Instead, he brought back the dishes he fell in love with on his many travels throughout Latin American and the Caribbean. As a result, the recipes hail from varied and far-reaching locales—Cuba's ropa vieja, for instance, drenches pulled beef and bell peppers in tomato sauce for a disk-shaped meal that Carol Deptolla of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel lauded as "modern and so delicious." Pechuga rellena—a stuffed chicken breast wrapped in a blanket of bacon alongside a delicate guava sauce—comes from the Caribbean, while the cheese-laden sweet plantains and ground beef that is pastelon hangs its hat in Puerto Rico. In the dining room, Deptolla writes, "Latin music is played at a subdued level, and the lighting is discreet," forming an atmosphere that sets a prime stage for romantic dinners, special occasions, or secret rendezvous between rival spice-trade ships.

Jennifer Nowicki really loves produce; she's named her third restaurant Verduras, the Spanish word for vegetables. The completely vegetarian menu employs ingredients such as grapefruit, beets, and teriyaki-infused carrots to insulate sandwiches, salads, and soups, many of which are also vegan or gluten free. However, the ever-shifting curls of steam that tickle the hardwood floors, exposed rafters, and large windows hint at Verduras' primary focus: teas from all across the globe. Beneath the ivory-hued exposed bricks, white, green, rooibos, and local Rishi teas steep in hot water, filling mugs with the flavors of wild rose, hibiscus, or chai. The floral aromas of darjeeling fill the air as patrons gaze at the art on the walls, rendered in crisp black and white like a zebra’s yearbook page.

Kavo-Apna's chefs bring the flavors of India and Pakistan to the mouths of customers with an extensive menu and full lunch buffet. They boil prawns in a creamy masala curry with tomatoes and onions. Meanwhile, they slow-roast whole chickens in their tandoor, the clay oven trapping heat and searing the flavors of spices into the bird's skin. They even serve traditional lamb dishes, such as the mutton biryani over spiced basmati rice.
