The culinary focus at this good-looking dining spot at the St Martin's Lane Hotel is, mostly, a fusion of Chinese and Cuban flavours. It's a cuisine that was borne from Chinese migration to Cuba in the late 1850s, to work in the Cuban sugarcane fields. It's still going strong in Havana's Chinatown.
The dinner menu here features dishes such as crispy wonton served with Spanish olives, currants, toasted coconut, almond and avocado ceviche, spring rolls filled with slow-braised short rib and sweet and sour chilli, chipotle-glazed tofu, and swordfish served with vegetable escabeche, yuca dumplings, bok choy, toasted garlic and a spicy shrimp coconut curry broth.
Tasting menus, bottomless brunches, bento boxes and an Asian-influenced Sunday roast also feature.
