Asiatique Restaurant Review

: Bouillabaisse seasoned with massaman curry, coconut- cardamom-clove beef rendang and grilled mahi dressed with plum glaze are among the distinctive Pacific fusion entrées deftly rendered by chef Peng Looi. Diners looking for variety and/or a series of light bites may choose from a list of small plates, among which are lemongrass-scented chicken wings, shrimp dumplings, duck nachos and tempura vegetables. Ramen fans will find pork, chicken and seafood versions as options. The reasonably priced wine list is loaded with well-chosen California bottles. Desserts, including house ice creams, rely heavily on tropical fruits. Tables in this hipster-feeling restaurant (before hipster was even cool) are spread among several floors, with a cozy bar tucked away on ground level. Stop by late night for the snack menu and well-crafted cocktails.

A fusion restaurant that misses the mark

This is a beautiful restaurant with an incredibly attentive staff. It came highly recommended by friends. We ordered the 5-course degustation menu.
The first course was a cold duck salad. It was perfect, with an incredible variety of tastes and textures, and a wonderful hoisin vinaigrette. The next course, panko-encrusted diver scallops and tiger prawns were beautifully presented with a tasty aioli. The seafood was well-cooked, but nothing particularly remarkable.
The next two courses, however, were disasters. There was a plate with a pulled-beef stew and a pork rib. Again, a nice presentation, but the food was so salty that it was almost inedible and the sauce for the stew lacked subtlety. The next plate (which looked almost exactly like the preceding one) contained a lamb chop and a lamb stew in a cabernet reduction. Again, the salt content of the plate was too much. The sauce was overpowering, although the meat was well-cooked.
The dessert assortment was magnificent to look at, but there wasn't anything memorable taste-wise.
