Tucked away in a side street on Chapel Street, the brand new Zhou Zhou is located above the Oriental Teahouse, a hip drinking den with a cool vibe and enough Asian ales to make you think you’re in Shanghai. On opening night, Real Housewife of Melbourne Janet Roach, Rhonda Burchmore, Brodie Young, designer Anthony Capon and bloggers Stef and Jess Dadon (How Two Live) all helped to down cocktails such as Mekong Hijinks (which involves sucking a lychee lolly). Owner David Zhou toasted Rhonda Burchmore in his speech, and then let everyone devour the dishes such as scallion pancakes and plump prawn dumplings in the Hecker Guthrie-designed space. Delicious.
