Review on Chino Latino
Imaginatively blending the best of Far Eastern and Japanese culinary delights with a Latin-styled bar, Chino Latino is a classy cosmopolitan venue with a growing list of awards and accolades. The innovatively designed dining and bar areas are lavished with deep, luxurious colours, sophisticated furniture, and sexy modern lighting effects to create a stylish and trendy ambience.
The menu is dominated by dramatically presented pan-Asian sharing dishes, although the repertoire is fleshed out with some European crossovers, Latin influences and Mediterranean accents. Typically tantalising offerings might include pan-fried scallops with sweetcorn purée and XO sauce, seared beef carpaccio with orange cilandro, marinated lamb chops with pickled mooli, cauliflower purée and baby carrot, and pan-seared duck breast and foie gras with poached Nashi pear, yuzu miso and tempura hives. Desserts mostly veer to the west for the likes of warm layered banana cake with pistachio ice cream.
Lunchtime sees affordable bento boxes taking centre stage. Saké and Japanese Asahi beer suit the food; otherwise there are plenty of decent wines to choose from. Branches in Lambeth and Leeds.
