Doral Japanese-Peruvian Gem Tira.D.Toss Hides in Plain Sight

Take a pull of chicha morada -- a sweet, bluish drink made with Peruvian purple corn, pineapple, and orange accented by the spicy aroma of cinnamon and cloves. Nibble an anticucho of a half-dozen juicy, glistening chunks of beef heart seasoned with little more than garlic, salt, and a good sear. Relish the glow of tiki torches and dim string lights.

It's hard to believe you're in a strip mall sandwiched between a Subway and a chiropractor's office.
