Asia De Cuba!! Rating 1-10. Ambiance-8.5, Service-8, Price point-8.5, Food quality-7. Valet parking for $14 with validation!! Pretty pricey but that’s pretty common for this area.

This restaurant is located in Hollywood inside the Mondrian Hotel. Elegant atmosphere with great views. The last time I dined here was about a year ago and I noticed that they downsized their portions. They are known for their calamari salad but honestly I was a bit disappointment with this dish. It tasted better before from what I remember and it’s only about half the size. They also took the plantains off their menu which I thought was odd being that this is a Cuban restaurant. The Rib Eye was probably my favorite dish. Cooked to perfection. It was quite delicious. 😉
Started off the night with a mojito which was excellent!!

Sweet donuts rolled in cinnamon sugar with toffee sauce. I was so excited when this dessert came out but it was quite doughy inside and wasn’t what I expected. 😦
