Vasco has added more Espirito Latino to HongKong street by launching a new menu!
We have more dishes to delight the taste buds using some exotic ingredients like tamarind in our new dessert, and some suprising ingredients like Cola in our Marinated Chicken.
But don’t worry, we’ve kept all your favourites like the meatballs, the el Cubano sandwich and the cassava fries. Which brings me to one of the most frequently asked questions we hear at Vasco: What’s a Cassava?
Cassava, or yucca, is a nutty flavoured, starchy root vegetable. The sweet, chewy underground tuber is one of the popular with the indigenous people of many parts South America. It has been used as a staple food source for centuries.
In short it’s the Latino brother of a potato. Our hand-cut, crispy on the outside cassava fries are tossed in garlic, chilli and a pinch of salt. Have it as a side to the Argentinian rib eye and you have yourself a Latino Steak Frites.
