Nuba #Summervibes comes to my mind when I think of summer!
For me, summer means beautiful weather, beach, warm nights, social events, parties and refreshing drinks by the lake. My favorite place to enjoy some chilled afternoons, cocktail drinks and Asian fusion food is Nuba Restaurant Lounge & Bar in Herastrau, without no doubt.
I’m like those people who tend to go back to the same restaurant, even after attempting to try a new one and failing. From the day they opened the second restaurant by the lake, with a big Opening Party, it was beyond expectations for me.
Once you go Nuba, you’ll definitely be into it!
As the food lover that I am, I couldn’t miss trying this new level of Asian cuisine and Sushi opened in Bucharest this summer. Last week I was invited to Nuba for a special dinner and I thought is the perfect occasion to shoot some pictures together with my photographer David Ghisa. I had an unforgettable dining experience feeling so comfortable thanks to their good ambiance.
We ordered many dishes from the Asian fusion cuisine and shared them. My favorite one was Grilled Calamari with Vegetables in Kimchi Sauce and a magical chocolate Mousse I had for dessert. Delicious! I haven’t eaten this much for months! I always want to max the experience when I come to a restaurant and eat as many dishes on the menu as possible! Besides that, If I’m not drinking good champagne or Rose wine, I’m trying new cocktails. I prefer a fresh cocktail over any alcoholic beverage, really!
I also tried their Shrimp Salad with Mango Dressing and their Rock Shrimps Tempura. If you come here for dinner, be sure to leave some space in your stomach for their divine dessert menu. We ordered 3 different chocolate desserts. You also need to try their Blueberry Pannacotta with Lavander, it’s so delish!
If you don’t come here for dinner I would highly recommend the parties. For example, tonight you can party with Damian & Brothers Band.
Nuba #Summervibes Restaurant, a 100% RO business, was born about eight months ago and started with the first winter location, in the North Street area Gafencu – Herăstrău. In June, Nuba was relocated and turned into Nuba #Summervibes. A terrace with an interesting design on Herăstrău Lake, suitable for all occasions. You’ll be surprised by the friendly staff and their good services.
Since its launch, the restaurant brought a unique concept of Asian fusion cuisine spiced with vibrant parties, from Wednesday until Saturday.
They took inspiration from all the Asian countries, keeping a balance between the Asian tastes and Romanian preferences. Chef Catalin Petrescu has worked hard to improve the menu to the highest standards, both in terms of taste and quality. He has a very modern and fresh approach to the way he makes the dishes. The food is hand-crafted from scratch, not pre-processed, and made with the highest quality ingredients and fresh, locally grown produce. The menu includes an array of appetizers, entrees, sushi, cocktails, sake and more.
If you drop by, you will find a nice vibe, serving your lunch/dinner, tasting the Asian fusion dishes and good wines. When the night comes, Wednesdays to Saturdays you can mix your dinner with a party. Live music has also a special ‘corner’ and it gives an ‘Easy listening’ for dinner time. After midnight the DJ will be spinning your feet all night long.
I wish you could experience the taste through these images but I guess you gotta experience Nuba restaurant yourself!
Whether you’re entertaining, out for drinks, or just for a dinner with friends,
try NUBA #Summervibes and see what I mean.
But remember, drink responsibly!
