I am very glad that my mom and I weren't deterred by Fuego's sort of hidden location and lack of visible crowd. We had a fantastic dinner this past weekend.
Service was great - enthusiastic and informative.
Mom started with a coconut mojito (one of Fuego's signature cocktails) and I had a glass of white sangria. I don't even like coconut and I thought her drink was delicious.
We shared an order of empanadas as an appetizer, per the recommendation of fellow Yelpers. I don't remember what they were stuffed with but they were good. I could have perhaps used a guac or some kind of dip, but then again I am a condiment freak.
I let our server pick my entree, between their nightly special (a blackened mahi mahi in tomatillo cream sauce) or the short rib. He chose the mahi for me and it was really, really good. All entrees come with your choice of 2 sides and I chose some sautéed green beans and jalapeño creamed corn. The creamed corn was tasty, but definitely had a kick to the aftertaste! Mom got the seafood stuffed chile relleno and let me tell you it was AWESOME. I was super jealous of her entree but she was nice and let me have a bite or three. I would definitely come back just to have that dish. Yum.
I will also be back to check out Fuego's happy hour, which runs Tuesday through Saturday from 3-6pm and includes a bunch of small plates and discounts on booze.
