There’s nothing better than kicking back with a fresh beer poured straight from the tank after a long day of exploring, and Yiko’s unfiltered brews are the island’s best. Our favorite is the pilsner, which glows with a cloudy golden goodness. The micro-brewery, which is owned by the adjacent Naza Hotel, also turns out a deeply colored “American IPA” that’s light on hops and thus better than the original, and the amber ale is dry and malty, more thirst-quenching than most. The kitchen’s reliable Western-Chinese fare, also available at the more formal restaurant across the street, is well photographed and explained on the menu. Stir-fried asparagus and surf clams are delicious, and quesadillas hit the spot. Curiously, the wine list is all Hungarian.
