Latin cuisine is widely enjoyed for the intensity of its flavors, the spiciness of its sauces, and perplexing profundity of its ablative case. Conjugate your mouth’s desires with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Latin fusion fare and drinks at Baru Urbano on South Miami Avenue.
The inspired chefs at Baru Urbano bridge cultural and culinary divides with a mouthwatering melting pot of Latin-tinged fusion cuisine. The menu quells taste-bud turmoil with an array of appealing appetizers, such as the arepa colombiana, a piping-hot corncake adorned with a helping of shredded white cheese ($5). A teeming school of ceviche dishes includes Cartagena street ceviche, a plate of shrimp in pink sauce with salt crackers ($14), as well as the signature Baru ceviche, a serving of corvina fish marinated in lime and passion-fruit juice and accompanied by an entourage of fried plantains with Colombian hogao sauce ($16). Entreevores can aim their eyeballs at the menu's meatier climes, which sport dishes such as the churrasco, a dish of grilled skirt steak with a side of yucca or fries ($18), and savory roasted chicken, served with a mélange of yucca hash, sweet potato, peppers, and red onions ($18). A shaded patio allows Baru Urbano patrons to revel in fresh-aired feasting and use their mouth-friendly morsels to bribe passing butterflies for the secrets of flight.
Barú Urbano takes the ingredients of island life—the colors, the music, and the laid-back vibe—and tosses them into a blender with the ingredients of urban life—the street art, the food, and the cocktails. The resulting concoction is a festival for the senses that still manages to offer a relaxing escape from everyday city living.
Barú Urbano's menu reflects this casual yet exciting spirit. Using urban comfort food as the basis for many dishes, chefs infuse bites with Latin and Caribbean flair, especially through signature dressings, sauces, and salsas. The spread also features ceviches, empanadas, and carnes, including one dish called the BARU parilla. Packed with enough food to feed three people or one body-building alligator, the BARU parilla is served on a sizzling skillet loaded with grilled steak, short ribs, and chorizo.
