I first had Asian and Latin American fusion food in Nobu a few years ago, but ever since this type of food has become very popular with the openings of Asia de Cuba, Sushi Samba and now Sushinho. Sushinho blends Brazilian and Japanese food and tries to serve you food that you would find in Rio and Sao Paolo prepared by some of the 1.8 million Japanese people that now live in Brazil.

I went to Asia de Cuba on a Saturday night as we were having a catch up dinner with my LSE friends. The last time (and the only time) I had been to Asia de Cuba before was about 5 years ago for lunch, and I remember it used to be one of the IT places to go to in London, and people would really be super keen to go there a few years ago Unfortunately it seems like the hype around the place has died and I can't remember really anyone mentioning the place before my LSE friends decided to go there for dinner. But I was wrong and clearly people go there as the place was full and buzzing when we arrived, with every single table occupied. The restaurant is located in St Martin's Hotel which is very trendy and modern, on the edge of Covent Garden and the restaurant is very cool, on 2 levels, one level about a metre higher than the other one, and the walls are decorated with pictures.

SushiSamba

This is one of the hottest openings of this year that everyone is talking about. SushiSamba is a Japanese/ Peruvian/ Brazilian fusion restaurant (so a bit like Nobu in this way) that already has branches in New York, Miami, Chicago and Las Vegas and a few weeks ago they opened their first restaurant in Europe, in London. SushiSamba is located on the 39th floor of the Heron Tower, in the financial city area of London, and is now supposed to be the 2nd highest restaurant in Europe (only to be upstaged by Duck & Waffle which is located in the same building but on the 40th floor). I went there on a very hot Friday a few weeks ago for lunch and the view from the 39th floor was absolutely amazing, the best you can get in London in my view and tourists should be taken here not to the London Eye.

Limo is one of my favourite restaurants in Peru, and my favourite one in Cusco. I had read a review on Limo and really wanted to go there, mainly because the restaurant overlooked from above the main plaza of Cusco, Plaza de Armas, and had a nice view of the church in the square and the surrounding mountains. I thought it would be great to have dinner with this view, but the food was also superb.

Dexhels is a fusion restaurant (Indonesian, Chinese, Japanese and European food) in the Hague, Netherlands. I thought the concept of doing this was great, however some of the dishes I did not think were that tasty or good.

There were however some delicious dishes like the Indonesian satay which apparently is a home recipe of the chef (and I guess Indonesian dishes would be the best due to the Netherlands and Indonesian link). I also very much enjoyed the duck pancakes which were sort of similar to the pancakes you make in a Chinese restaurant with the crispy aromatic duck.

The dishes that I thought could have been better were a crab dish, bento box (did not like the dumplings), sashimi, cod ceviche and goats cheese salad. I sort of could tell what these dishes were aiming to achieve as there are similar dishes I have had in London, but the taste of all these was just a bit off.
