On his third restaurant, chef Kiko went Asian. The Asiático has been firing on all cylinders since its November opening: a nice restaurant, full of cute details and plush furniture, very well lit, with an open-air terrace featuring a fireplace. The menu is small – only 13 dishes and four desserts – and it crosses the Asian continent, from Nepal to Japan, including some authorial flourishes with haute cuisine techniques. The house suggests sharing dishes, from Vietnamese pho soup to Thai roast beef with som tam salad, from Indian lamb to sweet curry.
Time Out tips:
– The trip to Asia begins at the door, with jars of spices, Japanese baking powder, dry mushrooms and beans.
– Reservations accepted only for lunchtime.
– You can sit at their beautiful bar counter and order anything on the menu.
