Cinko, an Asian Latino inspired kosher restaurant is planned for a December 20 debut at Baha Mar, under the strict supervision of Chabad of The Bahamas.
Baha Mar officials say Cinko will celebrate the rich diversity of five of the top culinary Latin American countries, bringing an exciting exploration of the multicultural Latin cuisine paired with bold Asian flavors.
The menu will introduce classic Argentinian Parrillada mixed grill featuring Korean style kalbi ribs, Wagyu ribeye, chicken chorizo sausage, lamb chops, and New York strip steak served with authentic sauces including chimichurri, Romesco and aji amarillo, as well as classics with a Latin twist such as pastrami and brisket Cubano sandwich and won ton chicken noodle soup. Salmon ceviche from Peru made with leche de tigre (mixture of lime juice, salt and flavorings) with a hint of fresh yuzu (Japanese lemon) is another example of the harmonious pairings that have been reinvented with a delectable and modern twist.
Cinko will also serve a variety of the freshest sushi with Latin infused specialty rolls along with traditional favorites.
“We look forward to expanding Baha Mar’s culinary portfolio by introducing Cinko Asian Latino Grill as the latest addition to our impressive restaurant offerings,” said Graeme Davis, president, Baha Mar. “As we continue to uphold our promise to provide the luxury of choice to all travelers, we are delighted to offer our kosher guests an exceptional dining concept with the same outstanding level of service and remarkable food options that have elevated the Baha Mar culinary experience and redefined the Caribbean vacation for contemporary travelers.”
Rabbi Sholom Bluming, Chabad of The Bahamas said they are thrilled by the exciting development for Baha Mar.
“The opening of Cinko Asian Latino Grill is great news both for the local community and for international visitors from around the world,” said Bluming. “As rabbi of The Bahamas, we are proud to oversee its kosher certification and excited for the high standard of kosher which the restaurant will uphold. We congratulate Baha Mar on this momentous endeavor and look forward to its success.”
Located inside Grand Hyatt Baha Mar, Cinko Asian Latino Grill will be open for dinner and in-room dining, according to Baha Mar officials. They say kosher breakfast and lunch menu items will also be available throughout other Rosewood and SLS Baha Mar outlets. And that Cinko and bespoke kosher menus can be arranged to accommodate celebrations and groups for any size of catering events through their on-site kosher kitchen. Guests of Baha Mar as well as residents of New Providence will be able to enjoy the offerings at Cinko Asian Latino Grill.
