Restaurant Asia in Zagreb enjoys the status of a native, compared to many other Asian restaurants that appeared in the city in recent years. Indeed, the first Chinese restaurant in Zagreb was opened during the war, 30 years ago, by the most successful Chinese entrepreneur in Croatia, Xiaotong Chen-Li. And 15 years ago, Asia moved to its current address, in the northern part of Zagreb, to a ground floor house that once housed the cult inn Tinča. From the very beginning, it offers Chinese specialties that have won over local audiences, while many visitors from the Far East find a touch of homeland here. As usually, we started our lunch in Asia with the spring rolls, always delicious and crunchy, and Phenix king prawns breaded in almond crumbs that gave to the dish a specific taste. We also ordered a soup with corn and egg full of delicate flavours. By deciding on the main dishes we didn’t resist again the crispy duck Asian way with pancakes and black bean sauce. The thinly sliced duck breast was excellently roasted, with a dark yellow crispy skin, and at the same time juicy and soft. And the whole ritual around that dish is attractive, in particularly when you fill the pancake with meat, thick bean sauce and thin sticks of raw leeks. We also ate the Yu Xian pork with vegetables in a sweet-sour and hot sauce, along with steamed rice that softened the hotness of the dish. We liked the Tie Pan Hong Kong beef, a roast beef in black pepper sauce on a black iron pan that keep it warm. As in all Chinese restaurants, the menu is long and you will for sure find a combination that suits you, depending on whether you want chicken, pork or beef, or fish or seafood. The same goes for rice and noodles, which are available in several versions. Asia is definitely a restaurant to recommend when you feel the urge for Chinese food.
