Nestled on Campbell Street in Surry Hills, a pinch of 1920s Shanghai has opened in Sydney this week with Suey Shins. Urban-chic wall art and neon lights will illuminate Asian fusion cocktails and small eats.
The new spot was created by 25 year-old new comer Eli West who has taken inspiration for travelling, and a pin-up, call girl, Suey Sin – an apparent icon of the time.
West notes, “I was always looking for that late night venue that doesn’t take it-self too seriously; you can walk in off the street, book a table for dinner or join us after work for a drink. The vibe is lively and the late night eats are moorish.”
With a kitchen that is open until 12am each night, customers can expect a menu created by the guys at Tsuru that features the likes of Mi Goreng Spring Rolls ($12), Deep Fried Nori Vermicelli Rolls with Lettuce Wraps ($10) and Lotus Root Nachos – cheese, salsa, sour cream and guacamole ($14).
This menu sits alongside a drinks menu that boasts the Lust cocktail – white rum, blended pink dragon fruit, coconut water, lemon syrup ($16) and Suey Signature Slushees, such as The Pineapple Express – vodka, kwai feh, pineapple, mint, lime, coconut water ($13).
Where: Level 1, Corner of Campbell and Elizabeth Street, Surry Hills
When: Open Wednesday to Sunday from 12pm till late
