It's a dish that almost defies description: a burrito filled with steak, cheese, and beans, then topped half in cashew sauce and half in sweet and sour sauce. A dollop of sour cream provides the finishing touch. The name of this concoction is, naturally, the Crazy Burrito, and it's one of the many fusion specialties cooked up at Chinese Mexican Burrito.

True to its name, the casual eatery serves up a tasty combination of global food favorites. For beef curry, orange chicken, and garlic shrimp, customers turn to the menu's Chinese page. For tacos, burritos, and fajitas, they flip to the Mexican section. And there's a whole American menu for those seeking star-spangled burgers and wings. The culinary cultures meet atop plates in the restaurant's signature Chinese Mexican burritos, which wrap up ingredients such as lemon chicken and sweet and sour sauce in south-of-the-border flavors.

At Mitsu Neko Fusion Cuisine and Sushi Bar, diners savor Japanese delicacies of spicy crab, flavorful albacore tuna, and savory black tobiko. Guests chow down on American sushi-fusion inventions including cream-cheese philadelphia rolls or zesty california rolls. They can also dig in to morsels of black-cod, squid, and smoked-salmon nigiri freshly fished from the ocean or courageously stolen from the paws of nearby bears. Dessert is equally inventive, as the restaurant serves familiar meal cappers from outside the Japanese culinary tradition, such as puffed sugar cookies and crème brûlée.

Shorty Small's also has a full selection of imported and domestic beers, as well as wine by the glass and nonalcoholic beverages for shorties.
