Fu Lu Shou A Touch of Local Flavour

[27/07/14] 

Hong Kong’s mixology street cred may follow behind the scenes in Sydney, London, and New York, but innovators behind the mahogany are doing their bit to put our fair city on the cocktail creating map, and one new spot hidden away above busy Hollywood Road blends east and west better than a junk load of Hong Kong-born, Canadian educated co-eds.

Fu Lu Shou, located in a hidden studio that previously housed private kitchen TBLS (the door code changes each week), is unashamedly hip, with a creative cocktail list laced with Asian ingredients, a handful of Chinatown-esque nibbles on the bar menu (the sesame prawn toast is a crowd pleaser), and plenty of Aussie twangs coming from the many Australian (or Australianised) staff.  The open terrace is a great place at which to start a night on the town; cushioned swing seats and bar tables dressed with traditional Chinese crockery (ironically sourced from France) set the scene for cocktails that are a little light on alcohol and a little heavy on price tag, but promise refreshment for the palate as well as the imagination. The face-slapping sourness of the Haam Ling Chut with rum and preserved mandarin is a great play on the salty lemon 7-Up Hong Kong classic, while the Joh Sun, served tall, blends ginger with vinegar, lime, and lemon vodka to invigorate the senses and cool the soul in one fell swoop.

Think of it as a palate cleanser for the night ahead.
