For those who love Asian cuisine, and especially the vast world of typical Chinese dumplings, Dou – Asian Passion is the perfect restaurant. Located in Piazza Napoli, a few steps from the artistic and trendy area of Tortona and Solari, the restaurant offers an essential and elegantly designed space, ideal for enjoying some quality, Asian fusion cuisine.
The main room is furnished with panels of raw wood that separate the tables on which fall red, tubular lights hanging from the ceiling, creating a soft atmosphere, perfect to enjoy your dinner in peace. For those who want a more intimate atmosphere, however, the restaurant also offers a smaller separate room with a few tables and sofas, designed for business meetings or romantic dinners for two. On the lower level there’s also a lounge bar, with a long central counter to sit down and a lot of tables where you can also eat.
While falling into the category of fusion cuisine, the dishes on the menu are influenced by the typical Chinese southern cuisine. The menu is varied and inviting, with a wide selection of steamed or grilled dumplings as the traditional dim sum, the xiaolongbao, typical of Shanghai and filled with meat, fish or vegetables, and the inevitable wonton.
Those who do not like dumplings can opt for the soups, ramen, fish and shellfish, meat and vegetables, perhaps sipping sake. This gastronomic trip to the Orient will end with desserts made by the renowned Pasticceria Martesana, whose name is already a guarantee of high quality. But even telling you our experience in the smallest details, we could say a lot about Dou, but not everything. The rest is up to you to find out.
