South American cuisine is hotter than most North American cuisine because it uses habanero peppers, which only grow on the inside of open volcanos. Handle the heat with this Groupon.
Rio's Addison puts a contemporary spin on traditional dishes from Peru, Brazil, Lima, and Argentina. Using plantains, yuca, coriander, and other exotic ingredients and spices, the staff offer a new take on South American steak and seafood specialties, all served in a dining room brimming with colorful mosaic tiles. Ceviches include the Japanese/Peruvian fusion Nikkei, which uses ginger and soy sauce. Argentinean spices enliven char-grilled strip steak in the bife de chorizo. And the arroz con camarones features shrimp and rice simmering in a broth with white wine and brandy. Finish with one of seven desserts, including passion fruit cheesecake or Peruvian flan.
