asia de cuba

• 21 comments •


We celebrated Mina's birthday in Guayaquil. As mentioned earlier, there was a strong Asian influence in Guayaquil so we chose a restaurant called Asia de Cuba for the 'festivities'. We noticed that people in Mexico, Central America, and South America eat dinner a lot later than us North Americans, so, often, we were the only people in the restaurants. It was kind of nice. The food was excellent - really fresh, and well prepared. The innovative menu offers several dishes from all over the world from salmon ceviche to sushi to steak. The restaurant housed brightly colored decor and furnishing and it was nice to get out of our beach attire, get dressed up and have a proper meal in a trendy restaurant. We finished the night off with 4 different flavors of crème brûlée - our favorite dessert.

  11. Also, that place looks like the food costs more than my mortgage payments.

    You're crazy.

    Once slavery was abolished in Peru in the 19th century, many chinese people arrived as cheap labor. later on, japanese people were given incentives, like free/cheap land, to move there. as far as i understand.
