Happy times at Happy Palace

Restaurant tycoon and entrepreneur (St) Jerome Borazio has teamed up with business partner Josh Lefers to this week bring you Happy Palace, their latest venture located upstairs in the heart of the CBD; Bourke Street.

The idea revolves around modernised Chinese food in a traditional setting, complete with gold beckoning cats, chopstick laden table tops and carpeted floors that we all know and love.

The cheekily-punned cocktail “Duck You! Duck Face!” is sure to set tongues wagging – an interesting mix of duck washed Tanqueray Gin, Mandarine Napoleon Liqueur, sweet vermouth and bitters.

On the menu are your usual suspects, plus a few interesting newbies such as the Crab Rangoon – a dangerously addictive fried crispy wonton with a creamy, garlic, crab and shallot filling. Also on the menu are items such as General Tso’s spicy chicken, braised eggplant in a sweet bean sauce and crispy pork balls with egg noodles & chilli caramel. If you’re into sweets, the goldfish-shaped mango pudding is a cracker.

While the menu might not bewilder with its’ culinary breadth nor the décor woo with its fanciness; Happy Palace does tick the boxes because it strikes a balance between traditional grub, a relaxed atmosphere and happy times,  provided by the familiar Asian décor and open deck area that overlooks the city.

Somewhere Else video sings of summer

It almost sounds like the premise of a reality TV show: pile a bunch of artists in a bus for seven days, send them across Mexico and see what happens.
