This delicious recipe draws its inspiration directly from my numerous trips to Asia. In recent years, this magnificent continent’s cuisine has been very influential on the West Coast of the United States. California is in fact the central inspiration for the Muze Lounge & Terrace at the HONEYROSE Hotel Montréal, a Tribute Portfolio hotel. There, you will find generous cocktails, a festive and sunny setting –  with pink flamingos, gilding and woodwork – and a view of Montreal’s most entertaining place, the Place des Festivals.
