Without tortillas, humans would have to roll their burritos in construction paper and leave kindergarteners to cut up antique lace for their paper dolls' breeches. Avoid unnecessary paper cuts with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of fare and drinks at Azucar Picante Restorante & Cantina.
Azucar Picante Restorante & Cantina pairs traditional Latin and Peruvian fare with upbeat salsa music and dancing. Weary explorers who have given up on the hunt for El Dorado's lost-and-found box can rest within the soft folds of Azucar's chimichanga, which envelops chicken, onions, peppers, and cheddar cheese in a grilled flour wrap ($17). Bistec a lo pobre accessorizes a juicy pane of fried steak with a fried egg-brooch ($17), and the lomo saltado plays a tasty trio of sautéed marinated beef strips, onions, and tomatoes ($16). Four varieties of taco dishes supply flavourful finger-food ($10–$11), and eyes and stomachs alike feast on the dessert menu's turron de chocolate in which a brownie cradles raisins and pecans ($6) in a luscious embrace.
Diners can cultivate their taste buds' worldliness with the Peruvian menu, served on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. Besides serving lunch and dinner, Azucar Picante is an electric hub of Latin dancing, and on Friday nights intrepid rug-cutters can sashay in for free salsa lessons.
