Azuca Restaurant Review: Azuca offers Latin American cuisine in Southtown. The menu has included such items as ahi tártaro with spicy tuna, chunks of mango and an annatto-accented slick of drizzled oil. Other dishes, like the pasta Frontera with grilled chicken in a chipotle sauce over fettuccine, now nod more to generic, contemporary Latin cuisine. We head, instead, straight for old classics such as ropa vieja, that earthy, beefy stew with olives and tomatoes and a side of amarillos (sautéed ripe plantain). Chef Rene Fernandez also serves as the face of the restaurant Starfish, which his son opened close by. There’s a tropical drinks list with a decent sangría.
