Asia De Cuba’s Havana Inspired Menu

This Autumn, to brighten up the shorter days, fusion restaurant Asia De Cuba is launching a new menu. Executive Chef Luis Pous hails from Cuba, home to Latin America’s biggest Chinatown, and takes his inspiration from both his Latin American roots and his time spent in Havana’s Chinatown to create dishes combining the bold flavours of both cultures.

CFB (Curry, Football, Beer) Mondays!

What’s the best triumvirate? Alcohol, music and dance? Very enjoyable, but the potential for catastrophe is too high. Fish, chips and mushy peas? Excellent, but once the aggressive expansion kicks in, the novelty wares off…fast. No, the best triumvirate is this; football, curry and beer, that’s non-negotiable! It’s convenient then that Nook Sports Bar offers just that. And you’re not going to believe this, it gets better, it’s going to be available every Premiership Monday evening…what a wonderful establishment. Watching the greatest game ever played is bliss. Watching it with a beer is luxury. Not only does the passion escalate, […]
