Grab the hubby and book a date at Asia de Cuba, mamas!

Already in New York, London and Abu Dhabi, world renowned restaurant Asia de Cuba is now at the Westin Mina Seyahi and is rumored to become THE place to be. With fabulous food and a gorgeous setting, here’s why you need to check it out for your next night out.

The occasion:

It was meant to be a date night with Mr Y but that changed when he announced that he’d actually be on a plane to Cairo at the time of our reservation. Fabulous! Rather than cancel I asked my friend if she fancied coming. So then I suddenly had to get a new outfit and book a blow dry .. or is it only me who makes twice as much effort for their female friends as their husband?!

The Venue:

I was so excited when I heard that Asia de Cuba was opening at the Westin Mina Seyahi. The London and Abu Dhabi branches are two of my favourite restaurants ever so I couldn’t wait to give this one a try. The interior is gorgeous! There’s a strong Latin feel with bold patterned fabrics, lush living walls and Cuban poster art. It’s not the brightest of restaurants but the dramatic double height ceiling ensures that it doesn’t feel claustrophobic.

The Vibe:

The exotic decor creates a glamorous atmosphere while the friendly, welcoming staff and upbeat Latin music ensure that by the time you’ve sat down you are definitely in the mood for good food and good times.

The Food:

The cocktail menu features classics such as mojitos alongside more unique offerings which blend Asian flavours with tropical ingredients – long story short, sake and rum is a triumphant combo!

The food menu is an innovative fusion of Chino-Latin cuisine with dishes that are designed to be shared. To start we had the salmon cerviche with coconut, passion fruit and cucumber salsa, glazed sweet potato with chipotle honey soy and the pork chiccarones. All yum! For our main course we had the chilli-rubbed king scallops and Asian-style paella, oh and some grilled vegetables to make us feel virtuous. The food it’s absolutely fantastic and full of flavour. To complete our gluttony we ordered the donuts for dessert. Now let me be clear, these are not just any old donuts. They are small, fluffy balls of heaven served with caramel and thai chilli chocolate sauce. You MUST try them!

Room for Improvement:

We went on a Sunday night so the bar upstairs wasn’t open. The lovely manager allowed us a peak though and it looks fab. I’d love to go back when it is open so we can continue the night with more drinks and live Salsa music!

What We Loved:

We loved everything from the restaurant design and the lovely staff to the funky music and fabulous food. My friend hit the nail on the head when said it had been ages since she last saw a menu with so many interesting dishes on it. Due to the sharing concept the more people you go with, the more you get to try so gather your friends (or even a few strangers) and get yourself to Asia de Cuba. I promise you won’t regret it!
