Square Meal Review of Asia de Cuba at St Martins Lane Hotel ?

‘You can't beat this place for atmosphere and people watching', declares a typical fan of achingly modish fusion joint Asia de Cuba. Philippe Starck's concept interior continues to attract hip urbanites, who come to pose amid dangling light bulbs, book-covered pillars, transistor radios and monochrome prints. The eclectic look is matched by a menu that pulls together the exotic flavours of Cuba's Chino-Latino cafés. Start with zingy salmon ceviche marinated in Tequila and lime on soft spring-onion pancake or succulent honey and rum-glazed pork belly, ahead of softly flaking miso-cured black cod and a decadent ‘coconut invasion' banana layer cake. Enormous portions are made for sharing, but come with a hefty price-tag – as do eye-catching tropical punches in theatrical bell jars. However, the pared-back prix-fixe menu (£27 for three courses) continues to be a hit, and classy service clinches the deal.

We were there to try the Cafecito afternoon tea at Asia de Cuba, a sweet and savoury feast with both Asian and Cuban influences.

    inher30s :: Asia de Cuba Afternoon Tea

    It may surprise you to read that Asia de Cuba does afternoon tea – and in case you’re picturing another sandwich/scone afternoon, look again. Asia de Cuba offers a savoury/sweet combo menu that ticks all the boxes. The restaurant is located in a hotel lobby, but without a sign. I’m not sure how I feel about lobby restaurants, especially ones where you can’t tell if you’re in the right place but I’ll let that go for now. I’ve heard much about the interior, decorated by French designer Philippe Starck, the detail is achingly hip – book-lined pillars, transistor radios on display and brightly coloured prints adorn the walls but personally, I feel the effect is not as spectacular as it could be...
