Last week, Fort Lauderdale celebrated Latin American culture with a brand new promotion called Cultura Club. Yelpers learned how to move their hips at Latin Dance Movement, noshed on decadent bites at Casa Sensei and participated in a Mexican street party at Lona Cocina Tequileria.
To kick off the promotion, Yelpers learned some fancy footwork at Latin Dance Movement. The instructor, Hervin, walked attendees through some Salsa basics, before a little break. After some hydrating and mingling, the students learned some bachata steps to round out their dancing arsenal.
At Casa Sensei, we got a taste of how much Latin American flavors are influencing the culinary scene world wide. From innovative sushi rolls to Cuban tostones and Argentine empanadas, this was a world tour for your tastebuds.
The highlight of the week came in the form of a 100+ person street party at Lona Cocina Tequileria! This high energy get together had guests bouncing around from guacamole stations to taco stations while sipping delicious margaritas and Mexican beers.
As a special treat for members of the Yelp Elite Squad, we had some carefully curated tasting menus for them to enjoy. Elites chose between Inkanto Peruvian Cuisine, Pukara Peruvian Cuisine and CAO Bakery & Cafe and dined on dishes such as Lomo Saltado, Media Noches, Ceviche, Arroz Con Pollo fritters and much more.
