Going Coo-Coo for Coco - Happy Hour at Coco Asian Bistro & Bar

Between Miami Spice and the endless end-of-summer happy hours, August

is heaven for South Florida foodies. But with the vast array of choices

within this paradise for gluttons, a task as simple as choosing where

to go on any night can become overwhelming. So, how do you

choose?

Well, I'll make it easy on you. From 6 to 8 p.m. this Thursday, August 27, Dine Magazine is hosting a happy hour at Coco Asian Bistro & Bar, located in the Harbor Shops at 1841 Cordova Road in Fort Lauderdale.

Coco's upscale cuisine has been featured on both WSVN 7 and WPBT Channel 2, and it's not only because of the bistro's cute name. Chef Mike Ponluang takes an innovative approach to Asian dining by serving traditional dishes with a twist, like the "Three Buddies" entree, which is jumbo shrimp, driver scallop, and seared black cod in three sauces.

If that didn't convince you, this will -- to attend Thursday night's happy hour, you need only pay a recession-friendly $10, which includes one glass of Brutocao wine, with a choice between Sauvignon Blanc or Zinfandel, along with hors d'oeuves like egg rolls, dumplings, edamame, and an assortment of sushi.
