Zumu X DIVE NQ Review: A match made in heaven?

Posted by Laura Springer on Aug 7, 2019 3:15:10 PM

Who doesn't love Asian cuisine? From steaming bowls of ramen, to juicy bao buns, sticky skewers to perfectly rolled sushi, there's a blossoming love of Asian cuisine that is far from slowing down. In recent years, diners have moved away from Westernised takes on Asian food and moved towards more authentic tastes. People are starting to see not only how tasty it is when prepared authentically, but how varied and healthy it can be. 

The UK is also discovering the joys of a street food style of dining; they're smaller dishes that have been freshly prepared, flash cooked and when enjoyed in a restaurant, delivered to the table in waves. Forget the traditional style of choosing one main meal each, now you can sample many tasty morsels, whilst sharing with your family or friends.

Restaurant owners have been forced to be creative when finding a perfect home for their restaurant, acting like hermit crabs finding old, historically-rich buildings to settle in. 

Diners tucking into their three course meal or enjoying a cocktail may never know they are sitting in a disused warehouse, courtroom or even railway station.
