Missy Ho’s Your Friendly Fusion Foundry


Some things just go well together, like pineapple and maple bacon, like vermouth and olives, like peanut butter and ladies.

Sure there’s plenty of theory behind why these combinations work – celebrity chef Heston Blumenthal’s food pairing hypothesis states that the best combinations are created by ingredients that share numerous chemical compounds responsible for flavour – but all we know is some things just melt in your mouth.

The clever kids over at Missy Ho’s in Kennedy Town know a thing or two about flavour combinations. Already making a name for itself with its funky foodie fusion amidst cool, eclectic interiors, the newest eatery by Castelo Concepts (they also run the much loved K-Town Grill next door) is tucked away on unassuming Forbes Street (just look for the Leslie Chow poster). Served in a pint-sized dining room packed with Chinese ceramics, fake parrots, and birdcages, a delectable Asian fusion menu features the likes of completely addictive chicken and avocado sushi rolls, Mexican kingfish tostadas, oysters from Kyushu (where else?), miso cod tacos, grilled scampi and mango ceviche, and Sapporo beer battered kingfish. Pair these unique bites with a signature cocktail; they make their Long Island Iced teas with yuzu, their Espresso Martinis with butterscotch, and their Fanta Pants shots with a cracked “nerds” rim. Be sure to book well ahead as this tiny hotspot fills up fast, especially when the fancy dress cupboard is opened and the swing seats drop from the ceiling.

Now that’s a promising combination.
