ASIAN FUSION

The Asian fusion movement has brought two distinct restaurants into the forefront for 2015. The gem, Yuan Bistro, acknowledged earlier in 2015 by the Visit Temecula Valley for good reason. With delightful and unconventional Chinese flavors. A winner in every way.

Pechanga Resort and Casino has brought sushi to the next level with Umi Sushi and Oyster Bar. Perfect for a night out, or after a concert. Don’t miss this pearl of a restaurant on your next visit to Pechanga.

MEXICAN CUISINE

So many choices, but there is one that stands out for flavors across Mexico. Provecho Grill of Menifee will satisfy lovers of Mexican food from across Southwest Riverside County.

Whether it’s in your backyard, or a slight drive up the 215, Provecho Grill is worth it from the mixology of cocktails (Strawberry Jalepeno Margarita) to the best Sweet Corn Tamale this reviewer has tasted.
