Only all-natural meats and produce make the menu at Wachena, the popular steakhouse at Sycuan Casino. Homegrown Chef Andrew Modrzejewski, who understands classic and contemporary cuisines equally well, serves exciting fare built solidly on “nothing but the best.” His policy means that patrons feast on all-natural steaks from strictly free-range cattle, and Wachena’s chicken and lamb meet the same standards. Daily catches swim in from local waters.

“Comfort food with a twist” is sensational when devised by Chef Andrew, who bakes Kobe meatloaf in muffin pans “so it has a really cool look,” and adds elegant sauce chasseur. Equally exciting and unique: Carne asada ravioli, a Mexican-Italian sensation with a spicy-suave, roasted chiles-creamed corn sauce.

Simple comfort - and delicious!
