Asia de Cuba, the famous Chino-Latino eatery, boasts a menu that refreshes Dubai’s culinary scene.
The two-storey venue underwent a complete makeover earlier this year to reflect Asia de Cuba’s quirky personality, with bespoke wallpaper, furnishings and décor. It also has a huge wrap-around terrace with a true Latin-American feel to it. The restaurant, in itself, is an interior décor masterpiece.
The menu, a perfect culinary marriage of Latin and Asian ingredients, techniques and flavours, is an interpretation of Asian-influenced Cuban food curated by Executive Chef Luis Pous.
Consisting of five main sections: Ceviches, Sushi, Small Plates, Entrees and Cuban BBQ, the menu also features an extensive selection of desserts and hand-crafted cocktails that are built on classic formulas and draw inspiration from Asia and Cuba and mirror the approachable and tropical nature of the food.
Asia de Cuba’s signature small plates include Tunapica Tartare with crispy wontons, Spanish olives, almonds, currants and avocado, ‘Ropa Vieja’ Spring Rolls with braised beef short rib; Octopus al Ajillo with kale tabbouleh, lychee and garlic chips.
The Ceviche Bar’s standouts include Salmon, which is house cured with coconut, passion fruit, cucumber and chili mignonette; Shrimp, with aji panca, horseradish cream and lime, and Tuna with Asian pear, orange and seared Foie Gras.
Guests can enjoy a carnival-like atmosphere with the restaurant’s live Latino band whilst enjoying a mouth-watering selection of dishes.
