Bento Business Lunch - Asia de Cuba, Abu Dhabi
Asia de Cuba is one of those restaurants that seems grand, with its expansive terrace and views of the sea, so walking in on a weekday at lunch time is a bit surreal. Be that is it may, there are two things I want from a business lunch - value for money and time; can it deliver a lunch experience, from the moment I walk in, to the moment I leave, within 45 minutes?
The Bento lunch at Asia de Cuba passed on both counts. 40-45 minutes for a lunch of such quality, in such an aesthetically appealing restaurant with wonderful views, is more than I could have asked for. Secondly, at 85AED, this lunch is competitively priced with what is around. More importantly, it gives you a foot in the door of a restaurant that has made a big impression since its arrival. Lunch has just got a whole lot more interesting.
