This pocket of far eastern delight is reemerging as a dedicated dumpling bar.
In a particularly exotic little corner of Britomart, we have come to know the opulent Xuxu bar for its delicious Vietnamese morsels and fantastic array of cocktails. Subject to a minor revamp in the form of its menu and wine list, Xuxu has recently opened its doors with an ever-so-slightly different title.
Xuxu Dumpling Bar as it is now to be known, will be serving up authentic parcels of goodness using recipes carefully procured from all over Asia. From the classic Chinese favourites such as beef and celery, prawn har gao and potstickers, there will also be pork bun bao (Vietnamese steamed buns), Nepali momos and mandu dumpling soup from Korea – each flavoursome parcel hand crafted by chef Xuyen (Xuxu) Do Thi.
To accompany this delicate array of oriental goodness, Xuxu’s new wine list features some rare and exciting drops. Having garnered a ready following from wine appreciators far and wide, the revised selection will be on fortnightly rotation with the objective of enticing patrons to try something new.
With an utmost sense of hospitality, Xuxu Dumpling Bar is set to draw in those who desire quality libations and a superior selection of these delicious Asian delicacies. Though the ambiance remains as tempting and intimate as before, we can’t wait to acquaint ourselves further with this fresh and enticing new offering.
