Leggo My Fuego

Breaking the Curse of the Doomed Location

To finish things off, I had to try the flan. Fuego Bistro's version was thick and smooth and cheesecakey, substantial enough to share. Same goes with the tres leches cake, a giant slice that was drenched in cream, slathered in pineapple guava sauce, and garnished with fresh strawberries and toasted coconut shavings.

I should mention that Fuego Bistro is tiny, with only seven tables inside and a handful out in the courtyard. (Call ahead, especially on weekends.) There's nothing slick about it, nothing to distract you from your meal. Chatting about that on the way home from dinner one night, my sweetie noted, "They must have a lot of confidence in their food."

Hidden charms: Fuego Bistro is worth seeking out.

i am wondering if those lousy mashed potatoes could have been any worse than your dinner companion...having to eat with a pompous, arrogant, intellectually challenged person must be tough enough. i am glad you have taken over this column which was severly compromised by lemons. kudos for that. anything is better than lemons..who most of us predicted would not last 12 months on the beat. he had the disrespect of the entire "foodie" community..he became a characature of himself--the quintessential garroulous fool who had nothing to say. of course he would then defend himself by attacking his critic. what a mench! what a failure! we all wish you the best of luck in your recent endeavor.
