PAUSE EATS: Chino Latino

Set just off the Thames on London’s Albert Embankment, Chino Latino is about as close as it gets to date-night perfection. Located in the Park Plaza hotel, the restaurant takes up an expansive floor-to-ceiling window space on the first floor with striking views of the river making for a truly unique dinner setting day or night.

Serving up contemporary, innovative Pan Asian cuisine alongside an expansive selection of sumptuous tipples from their Latin cocktail bar, it’s a fusion that’s pretty unique for a city that has everything. Factor in their frequent jazz, soul and otherwise musically inclined nights and you’ve got yourself a well-rounded night signed, sealed, delivered.

When it comes to food, Chino Latino serves up an expansive selection of Asian fusion delights ranging from lobster taquitos (a must try), sumptuous sashimi servings & more robust options like sirloin steak with soy, mirin and garlic served on a bed of hot rocks. With the choice to go for a more traditional solo experience or delve into a delectable selection of small plates well suited to a group – it’s a menu well built for any form of dining experience.

Coming from their well-stocked Latin bar, the selection of refreshing drinks is no less alluring. Complementing the typical slew of wines, beers, spirits and more; Chino Latino’s expansive cocktail offering is a mark above the rest with taste-bud tantalising options such as their “watermelon smash” and mouthwatering “chocolate and hazelnut old-fashioned” which would give any dessert a run for its money.

All in all, while perhaps not the spot for a customer looking for a traditional ‘meat & two vegetables’ kind of experience, for the contemporary diner – Chino Latino hits all the notes needed for some well spent time… and money.
