Fuwa Fuwa Martini

Chocolate fondant & Trio of creme brulees

This little bar has been my favourite little bar around Surry Hills, and everytime I visit, it feels as though I’m being transporting away from Sydney into another city. It’s beautifully furnished with a touch of futuristic accents, dark timbers, downlighting, flickering candles and intimate booths. The bar menu is extensive and impressive of a modern Japanese fusion dishes with the influence continued through onto their cocktails. Although, tonight it’s just the sweet to delight, so we snuggle up on the lounge away from the torrential rain to some cocktails and desserts.

My favourite cocktail is the Fuwa Fuwa Martini; vodka shaken with muddled pineapple, cloudy apple juice and Chambord, topped with the sweetest, best tasting, delicate, vanilla fairy floss. Onto desserts, the dark chocolate fondant is warm and oozes like it should. It’s served with a vanilla miso ice cream which gives just the right touch of sweetness to counteract the bitterness of the dark chocolate. The flavours of the trio of creme brulee are seasonal, so it’s green tea, ginger and espresso on the menu tonight. My favourite is without a doubt the green tea, followed by the espresso – not the best in Sydney, but with its unique and dominant flavours, it still hits the mark.

With amazingly friendly and attentive staff and the best background music, this place is should really be kept a secret.
