Fusion food isn’t a new concept but whenever I do find a fusion food restaurant, they always take me by surprise. Whether good or bad, it’s always so interesting to see and taste how different types of food and flavours combine that are mainly found in specific cultures.
Asia de Cuba serves dishes with a fascinating twist of Cuban mixed with Asian flavours. As a starter, I had the Crispy Octopus Al Ajillo, a delicious combination with lychee; the sweet lychee with the savoury Octopus with a hint of chilli was just the perfect combination!
After such a brilliant start, I was all prepped up and looking forward to my main 🙂
My main was a coffee crusted ribeye with grilled tomatoes on vine, shiso mojo butter and wasabi miso potato purée. It was absolutely delicious. The coffee crust have the steak such a deep, rich flavour it didn’t need additional sauce. However, the coffee flavouring made it err slightly on the salty side though.
The interior design of the restaurant was actually quite interesting as well, three main pillars actung as the centre piece of the restaurant decorated as bookshelves and by picture frames.
Contrasted by the otherside of the wall covered in funky posters depicting Cuban culture and pop art.
All in all a very interesting, fresh dining experience but a great experience 😊
