Asia de Cuba has taken over The Front Room at St Martin’s Lane Hotel for the summer to bring you some of their best ceviche dishes.

The Asia de Cuba pop-up ceviche bar opened with a small media launch last night and will remain open until 25 July, 11.30am-7.30pm. There will be sit down space as well as a rum bar where guests can sample the small selection of ceviche dishes including Scottish salmon and salted avocado helado (ice cream); curry kingfish and passionfruit; grouper, Seville orange and aji amarillo; prawn, snapper and ‘confit’ watermelon as well as Asia de Cuba tunapica. Mexican doughnuts and butterscotch sauce provides the sweet.

Here are a few food shots from the launch:
