Pasión Latin Fusion’s chefs adorn the eclectic menu with flavors drawn from diverse regions and blended together with contemporary flair. Dining duos bite their way through a gustatory tour of Latin American cuisine, starting off with an appetizer such as the signature empanadas—plantain turnovers stuffed with cotija cheese and spinach. Entrees showcase fusion fare with churrasco—Nicaraguan grilled steak—and Cuban sandwiches. The taco plate brims with banana-chip-breaded strips of white fish snuggling pickled cabbage and avocado, covered in a smoky, piquant chipotle sauce and nestled in the embrace of warm flour tortillas. Journeys across the Central American platescape end with such sweet desserts as the azteca bread pudding con cajeta, with milk-caramel sauce and a hint of red chili, and the pastel de queso, a goat-cheese cheesecake drizzled with mango-caramel sauce.

Pasión Latin Fusion chef Elvis Bencomo blends flavors from across South America into plates of contemporary fusion fare. Small creative touches showcase the extent of his culinary skill; the breading on the fish tacos incorporates banana chips for extra crunch, and a hint of red chili enlivens the specialty bread pudding. In the colorful dining room, waiters wend their way between tomato-red balustrades to fill patrons' goblets with beer and wine or check the anti-gravity generators that keep cast-iron stoves floating above the floor.
