It was as if we left south beach and teleported to the movie, Alice and Wonderland. The stark white décor inside the Mondrian Hotel’s Cuba de Asia had crazy over-sized chairs and off-scale accessories throughout. A nice meal had been why we came but I can say the entrees out-shined the appetizers and any ceviche (my favorite of the entrees was the sea bass). But onto the happy ending. Dessert was a layered Caribbean carrot cake with cream cheese frosting with lemon grass and black currant ice cream. Perhaps that is what made it a little more Caribbean that regular carrot cake. The portion was average but most likely you will be pretty full and open to sharing. It was indeed a nice way to end the meal along with an espresso to kick back into gear. I can definitely see myself returning during the daytime for a sweet brunch and dip in the beautiful pool.
