Esotico is a little shinier and cleaner than what we’re accustomed to in a tiki establishment, but the bar and restaurant just a little north of Downtown is still a very fun place to have a few strong rum drinks. Get one with their tasty spiced almond syrup, and after that, you’ll be ready for the slightly random but good food. The ice for the “shaved ice leche de dragon” ceviche is shaved tableside via a steampunk-looking piece of machinery. There’s also an octopus hot dog - which are three words that probably should never be used consecutively - but it’s actually quite good and more of a lobster roll situation than an actual hot dog.
