Despite being the basis for many world recipes, Latin cuisine intimidates many foodies with its complex system of gender-specific ingredients, locative and vocative spice conjugations, and confusing sauce subjunctives. Today's Groupon revives your dead tongue with a living culinary language: for $10, you get $30 worth of Latin-Southwestern fusion cuisine and drinks at Fuego Bistro. The restaurant has garnered a ton of accolades and has a patio for dining under the color-saturated skies of an Arizona evening. You must use your Groupon only for dinner and never for undinner.

Fuego's dinner menu is full of tasty fusion faves underscored by classic French cooking techniques. Spark things off with a plate of empanadas ($9), then nuke your taste buds with delicious entradas such as the signature pernil asado (slow-roasted pork served with an orange-habanero mojo and locally tortillated corn tortillas, $19) and the large sautéed white prawns ($24), slathered with a grilled-pineapple-ginger-habanero chutney and garnished with pepper oil and an attitude. With the purchase of two dinner entrees, you unlock the bonus stage of the happy-hour menu, allowing you to beer your face for $3, slap a companion with a banana burrito for $6, and stuff a horchata bread pudding in your vestigial dessert stomach for $5.

If your Fuego food has a bit more fuego than you expected, cool your tongue off with one of the bistro's specialty cocktails. The Fuego martini (Sky vodka, Malibu rum, and pineapple juice, $10) is always a hit, but the real claim to fame is the mojito bar ($8–$12), which lets you "call it as you like it" from a selection of 12 flavors and 90 kinds of rum. For truly only-in-Phoenix flavor, though, order your mojito with prickly pear and then stand in front of a heat lamp while you drink it.

After a night of cool breezes, spicy food, hot music, and mojitos, Fuego will magically transform your spouse, boyfriend, or boy friend who thinks he's your boyfriend into the hot-blooded, nimble-hipped, bullfighting Latin lover of the dreams of 17% of the world's population.

Not valid during Restaurant Week 9/18–9/25.

Reviews

The Phoenix New Times has given Fuego Bistro the Best Mojito and Best Hidden Restaurant awards in past years. The bistro has also generated a lot of heat in local press such as AZ Central and Chowhound:

  • The perfect mojito is light and refreshing, with a sweet overtone that masks the kick of the rum. That's why we love the Prickly Pear version at Fuego Bistro, in central Phoenix. – Phoenix New Times

Citysearchers give Fuego an average of five fiery stars, Yelpers give it a four-star average, and 83% of Urbanspooners like it:

  • Deliciousness! The service was excellent! The owner was on out the floor - serving and interacting with the customers...gotta love that! He also gave us suggestions for apps, meals, and drinks - all were perfect! – lauranalex, Citysearch
  • The live music and seating in the patio provides a great atmosphere making you feel whisked away to places far away. – rhay, Urbanspoon
  • The flavors are spot on, the atmosphere is inviting, and the service is always great! – janey126, Citysearch

Fuego Bistro

Flavors from Oaxaca, Cuba, and Yucatan add depth to the menus at Fuego Bistro restaurants, three gourmet Mexican oases that pride themselves on their modern culinary touches. Among the warm reds and yellows and inviting black wicker chairs at the original Fuego Bistro, diners dig into ancho-dusted salmon croquettes and a seafood chili relleno with lobster cream-chili sauce.
