Savor the Bites has a pretty eclectic menu, heavy on Japanese influence but Latin American names. So of course I went for a Latin American named item. The Mexican version is a thin slice of meat, pounded thinner and breaded and fried crisp. It can be served on its own with French Fries or in a Torta. In other Latin American countries its more like what I got, a panko breaded chicken breast. I'm a little suspicious of the preparation because mine was done really fast, much faster than I can imagine cooking a breast when ordered. The order was serviced much like a "Chinese lunchbox" the meat, some rice, and a fried egg plus sauces. I couldn't quit figure out the sauces, the green one was the one I liked better, full of herbs. The orange one I suspect was a Siracha based. I really having problems with this dish. I ate all of it, but it lacked a spark that makes me want it again. I think this presentation would better with some of the other offerings on the menu. I did see the sushi they were making and it was pretty showy looking sushi. Synopsis: I can't decided if this is fusion or fizzle.
