Up until my dining experience at Lucia, the restaurant at Casa Colonial, I had been quite disappointed with the cuisine that I had tasted thus far in the Dominican Republic. However, after my sensational four course meal at this Asian-Latin fusion restaurant, my perceptions were radically changed.
Besides the gourmet dishes being delectably unforgettable, the ambiance was superb. You are guaranteed a view from any table in the restaurant, as one of the four walls is made out of glass, which looks out onto a mangrove jungle overflowing with exotic flora and fauna
At night, the candles come out in abundance casting the most romantic of glows.
My meals were a perfect example of how you can successfully combine Asian and Latin foods to create a flavor that tantalizes the senses and leaves you wanting more even after you feel like you cannot possibly eat one more bite.
But of course, I saved just enough room for the signature dessert. It might not be unique or even considered a fusion-dish for that matter, though anything with chocolate in my book is a winner. And so is Lucia!
