From the same energy and passion that Bond Trisransri brought Calle Ocho Mr. Yum comes 2B Asian Bistro. In the same Little Havana neighborhood, filled with art galleries, Cuban cuisine, cigar shops, and markets, 2B Asian Bistro stands out. A former architect, Trisransri added touches to the modest space that includes bamboo floors, a contemporary minimalist ambiance, and house music that brings the vibe of South Beach to Little Havana. The various abstract paintings were provided by Cuba Ocho, 2B Asian Bistro's neighbor across the street and complete the feel of the restaurant. The food shows a balance of flavors and textures that enhance the play on typical Thai cuisine. The wahoo carpaccio is thinly sliced fish with garlic ponzu and dry pepper ($13.95). "The bag of gold," an appetizer, features delicately fried parcels stuffed with shrimp, shiitake mushrooms, and water chestnuts. These crisp purses of perfection are full of flavor and bound to please ($9.95). The Thai beef salad is Thai-style sliced grilled beef with spices, tomato, onion, and cucumber. The salad is fresh, with green leaves of Romaine, sprigs of cilantro, and traces of mint and scallions rounding out the ingredients ($8.95). The "spice crispy duck" is an entrée served with steamed buns that the guest stuffs with slices of duck, scallions, jalapeño, cilantro, and cinnamon plum sauce. The sweet taste of the plum sauce, which has the consistency of honey, provides a distinct contrast ($24.95). And be sure to save room for the light and fluffy Thai donuts ($4.95) and banana tempura with ice cream ($6.95).
