Guests face the East in a number of ways at Indochine Restaurant, located within NIZUC Resort & Spa Hotel. Indochine welcomes its guests with a terrace that overlooks the Ocean, where warm sunsets near mangroves and the sea cue the senses toward Asia and the culinary touch of Chef Alicia Padilla.
Young, talented and passionate about spices, ancient and traditional flavors, Padilla has created a new menu with dishes that are a veritable tour of the Orient, combining Thai, Indian, Chinese, and Japanese influences.
As guests bask in dark-toned décor, a meal might commence with a light and aromatic starter like the Salmon Sashimi with Coconut Infusion, or a Ramen Soup with Angus Prime. Entrees might feature Chef Alicia’s passion for curry, such as a traditional Thai Massaman Lamb or Tikka Masala Lobster. Alternatively, they might feature unique Indochine Fusion recipes that group the flavors of India, China and Japan in a single dish. A repast may conclude with a sampling of the most select desserts in Asia, such as Mango Lassi Mushroom Soup, a classic reinvented by Chef Pastelero Nicolás Oviedo with the suggestions of Chef Alicia.
Chef Alicia brings guests the best of her constant search of the most representative flavors and seasonal specialities of the Asian continent. It’s one more way NIZUC puts guests at the crossroads of the best the world has to offer.
