Pao by Paul Qui

Beautiful and delicate information but bold and striking in flavor, the menu at Pao and the mind behind the operation, Chef Paul Qui, brings new meaning to
Asian cuisine. Offering a reinvented brand of modern Asian cuisine, Pao by Chef Paul Qui satisfies each aspect of a spectacular dining experience—in particular, the breathtaking ocean views, impeccable service, and taste-revolutionizing fare. Drawing from his background and range of international styles, including Filipino, Spanish, Japanese, and French, James Beard Award-winning Chef Paul Qui has created audience favorites like a mouthwatering selection of Crudo to Specialty Rice such as the sushi rice, raw fish, caviar and pickled vegetables of the Chirashi or the crispy pork, toasted garlic rice, chili, black vinegar, and fried egg that make up the Sisig. Savory meats like the Whole Aged Duck or Wagyu Flat Iron Adobo are also quite tempting, much like the monthly omakase feast that Chef and his culinary team present to diners looking for just a little more flavor exploration, always featuring a different theme or ingredient. And dessert is treated with the same care: light, eclectic, flavors of pear, coconut, or even lemongrass are perfectly intertwined and polished, making for the perfect end to an evening of delight.
