MELBOURNE | Lucy Liu Kitchen & Bar is hidden off Oliver Lane in Melbourne’s CBD, and offers diners a menu of pan-Asian delights in a modern, vibrant space which combines concrete, wood, and bright lights. Music is loud, but not too loud, and service is snappy and attentive.

Co-owners Michael Lambie, Scott Borg,and Zac Cribbes draws upon the many influences gained from time spent travelling and eating through Bangkok, Taipei, Shanghai, Tokyo, and Seoul to create a menu which combines bits and pieces from each city’s cuisine. The only rule here is that the food tastes good and head chef Cribbes and his team create some fantastic food as a result.

Dishes are designed to share, and there’s a lot to choose from. Freshly shucked oysters finished with a simple ponzu dressing make for a great starter, while betel leaf filled with crispy rice, chilli, lime, and smoked trout (Nam Kao style) provide a textural and flavour explosion. Soft shell crab ‘Jianbing’ pancake rolls with spicy hoi sin are well balanced, with a nice level of spice, and another item worth ordering. Also check out the Korean style crispy pork hock with apple kimchi salad, pancakes & hoi sin, and for dessert try the Vietnamese coffee ice-cream with fried Chinese donut.

For drinks, look to the cocktail menu, which also draws upon the same influences as the food. A highlight is the not too sweet, and refreshing Floating Market, which contains rosemary vodka, apple juice, pear puree, and lime. If you don’t feel like a cocktail, the wine list features an impressive array of lighter options from around the world, designed to pair well with the Asian flavours.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
