Spent the afternoon at Ayala Malls Cloverleaf yesterday to witness the launch of Aisian Fusion: Hybrid Casual Restaurant which is owned by Ms. Aiai Delas Alas and her partners. The Chef previously worked at Highgrounds in Rallos but took training in Malaysia, when he got back he executed the recipes of Ms. Aiai's partners specifically for this restaurant. It's located at the 4th floor of the mall beside Slimmers World. This is bad news for those who would try to lose weight but totally fine for everybody else who would crave for Asian cuisine.
Ms. Aiai now owns a few restaurants under her belt, no surprise because she finds it as a necessity for Filipinos and it's something she really believes as the perfect bonding time for families, friends, just about every Joe. So we tried a few things on her menu, which consists mostly of fusion dishes inspired by food from Japan, Korea, China and the Philippines.
|For appetizers, they got us dimsum like this Premium Mushroom Siu Mai. I love this because it's not mushy, you can really feel the morsels of mushroom and pork. This is served with chili and soy sauce, freshly made I'm sure because it feels like it.
|Their Iced Tea isn't powdered, it's brewed too.
|This is the Pork Katsu. Their version I think is sweeter than the usual because they adapted it to the Filipino ￼taste. Order this for kids or those who would want lots of rice on their meal.
|This one is like Lechon Macau and boiled White Chicken.
|This is another bowl of Char Siu pork and Roasted Chicken. I could feel the five spice was used a lot on the chicken.
To give you a short preview of the restaurant and our interview with Ms. Aiai on video. Enjoy!
Again, AISIAN FUSION is at the 4th floor of Ayala Malls Cloverleaf. They are open mall hours so make sure you get there on time. They also host events, so please do call them for reservations via +639668109178. The place is new, with an open kitchen, so posh for the place but that's a welcome development.
