Not only does The Asiatique expand the sense of taste but they also care about their environmental impact. Which we at First Thursdays love! The Asiatique works on a principle of avoiding the use of plastics with their food. Banana leaf is used in many ways to store and protect food and flavours. They also use tiffin carriers for takeaways, these retain the heat and texture of the food without losing anything in terms of quality of taste and presentation. The Asiatique also uses gluten free fish, oyster and soya sauces.
Just for First Thursdays, The Asiatique are offering a cooking demonstration from 5-6pm, which will revolve around the making and eating of gyoza - Japanese/Chinese style dumplings. There are vegetarian versions available as well so that everyone is catered for and can indulge. Limited tickets available – so phone The Asiatique now to book your place on 03 3650163. The cost is $15 per person (includes making and eating).
Following this, their wonderful dinner menu starts from 6pm. Bookings strongly advised 03 3650163.
When it comes to art nothing should be anticipated but everything should be available to explore. Let your sense of taste take the lead with one of these options from The Asiatique on First Thursdays: Paper, Scissors, Rock n’ Roll, 4 June – a sensory compliment to the unfolding events of the evening.
