GO! Miami: Delectable Delights
December 21, 2012
Miami… we can’t get enough of the sun-soaked beaches, chic hotel bars, trendy stores and gourmet eats. Although we can’t reveal all our favourite hotspots, here are a few to arouse your taste buds and get temperatures rising!
The Michelin starred Hakkasan at the ultra-chic Fontainebleau Hotel and Resort in Miami Beach has set the standard for Cantonese cuisine and haute Chinois interior design. Carved teak walls and turquoise hues infuse the décor of the space, creating a seductive enclave of rich textures and private niches. Serving modern Cantonese cuisine customised to make the best use of fresh local ingredients, Hakkasan also offers a fantastic dim sum lunch menu, New World wines and sake.
FAV DISH: Crispy Duck Salad
ZUMA brings Chef Rainer Becker’s internationally acclaimed Japanese cuisine to The Epic Hotel in the heart of Downtown Miami. Rooted in a philosophy of authentic dishes with intense flavours, the Zuma experience is complemented by an informal Japanese dining style called ‘izakaya.’ This swanky resto is no stranger to celebs like Quentin Tarantino, who often parks his yacht right outside.
FAV DISH: Kinoko no kama meshi (rice hotpot with wild mushrooms and Japanese vegetables & tuna tartar)
Asia Di Cuba unites the best of Asian and Latin cuisines, delivering exotic signature dishes in the backdrop of the architecturally stunning Mandarin Oriental Hotel designed by Marcel Wanters. Offering spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean, Biscayne Bay and downtown Miami, this is one sexy spot to be taking in a sunset while enjoying delectable delights from the restaurant’s Ceviche & Raw Bar.
FAV DISH: Pan Seared Ahi Tuna.
