ASIA ASIA BEST BITES SUMMER MENU
THE MAKI AND THE SHRIMP
Course two saw us diving into the Philadelphia maki, generously sprinkled with red caviar. The next two dishes were the best of the night: the shrimp skewer with fat shrimps alternating with asparagus and courgettes and the dim sum basket. While we enjoyed them all, the sweet potato dumpling with a hint of truffle was incredible.
We’ve always loved Asia Asia for its beautiful decor, outstanding food and views for days and now we love it for the amazing value Best Bites Summer Menu!
There are 4 courses, starting strong with some salty edamame, a good miso soup and our favourite, the fish options.
The superb hamachi (yellowtail) ceviche with wakamomo (weeny peaches!) and carpaccio salmon, elevated with a very subtle truffle ponzu, were melt-in-your-mouth good!
Dessert was either a beautifully refreshing sorbet or the lotus creme brulee. The creme brulee had a good crack when smashed with a spoon and was creamy and delicious - be sure to dig deep for pockets of lotus which really bring it alive. What a dreamy way to finish an outstanding meal!
THE MEAT COURSE
The ‘main’ course was angry chicken, perfect for the lovers of spice and the very excellent ribeye, cooked to taste and of outstanding quality. The steak was succulent and perfectly seasoned - this course alone represents great value!

Choose 3 options from the specially curated drinks menu which includes cocktails, mocktails, wine and beer. The sake based haruka with lychee juice was fragrant with hints of rose syrup, making for an enticingly good cocktail. The watermelon & basil martini was our favourite; the perfect pink drink was refreshing and fruity and found symmetry with the glorious pink blossom tree which dominates the dining area at Asia Asia.
