A balance between Asian and Latin flavors mixed with the Arabic heritage
Asia de Cuba proposes a bespoke four-course Ramadan menu bringing together a mix between the flavorful Asia de Cuba cuisine with an Arabic touch.
For their first Ramadan, Chef de cuisine Phillip Harbin and Executive Chef Luis Pous have crafted and executed for the Holy Month a bespoke menu that combines and perfectly matches the Arabic traditions during Ramadan whilst infusing the Asian and Latin flavors in every dish.
So, to break the fast, guests are invited to taste a Tamarind mocktail with sundried fruits and nuts and stuffed dates. The dates are surpringsinly filled with goat cheese, pistachio and cardamom and this association fits really well.
After the appetiser, guests are brought four different small plates to share which indeed gives a good overview of the innovative cuisine Asia de Cuisine brings in the Capital. We especially liked the black bean hummous with lime which was light, tasty and served with Plantain homemade chips. The Empanadas, a typical Cuban speciality, are given a local twist and along with the manchego cheese and sweet plantain, dried fruits are also added in.
For the main course, guests are invited to choose one out of the four options available for the Ramadan menu. We adored the grilled beef kebab that are displayed on a lemongrass stick. Not only an original and visual delight, the lemongrass also softens the meat and adds a discreet flavour to the dish.
We also enjoyed the Red Snapper that was crispy without being dry, served upon a tahini sauce with cilantro and topped with fried onions. The lamb chops were very soft and came along with stuffed lamb saddle and black bean hash. The last option is the seared mushrooms that won us over when we experienced the business lunch menu earlier this year (read more here).
For the dessert, Asia de Cuba proposes 2 different options: a bread pudding with orange blossom honey cream and pistachio. There also is a sorbet meringue with yuzu and coconut water if you wish to finish on a light sweet touch.
This four-course menu is really well-balanced and left us reinvigorated without feeling the guilt of having eaten too much. Definitely a Ramadan menu with a twist you should book during the Holy Month.
The four-course Ramadan menu is priced at 175 AED per person. Click here to download the Ramadan menu at Asia de Cuba in Abu Dhabi.
