Café Japengo

Café Japengo (J.E. Irausquin Blvd. 85, Palm Beach) –– Located in the Hyatt, this minimalist cafe serves innovative Pan-Asian cuisine and specializes in fresh seafood and sushi. Red, white, and black Japanese kites adorn the simple walls, providing only temporary distraction from the busy sushi chefs, who command attention in the cozy space. Start with Asian marinated duck salad or Okinawa soup with shrimp, shiitake mushrooms, and sake. For the main event, try the Marco Polo: udon noodles with filet mignon, lobster, shrimp, and mushrooms in a ginger lemon-grass broth. There’s also fried rice, Hunan beef, and basil chicken, and more than enough green tea to slake any thirst.
