If the last few months have been a preview, we can expect great things out of Santa Cruz, Bolivia’s Jardín de Asia in the coming year.  Back in October they hosted the first installment of Encuentros, the dinner series that is set to take place in four parts throughout 2015, bringing talent in the form of Peru’s Rafael Piqueras to show Bolivia the level of gastronomy they’re capable of employing.  Just last week, the Andean-Asian fusion restaurant unveiled their first-ever tasting menu, dubbed Travesía, which is a product of months of research and testing to bring diners a look into the future of Bolivian dining.
