Welcome to Ling Ling's, where Asian fusion food is enjoyed best with some seriously funky vibes.
Put away Google Maps and simply lookout for the giant, turquoise robot. No kidding! It's just as wonderfully outrageous inside with colourful manga blasted across the walls, neon signs, sweeping vines dangling from the ceiling and even an outdoor garden area with its cute Japanese bar.
The menu is a bold mixing pot of Korean and Japanese cuisines with a very special twist. Start with some fluffy bao sliders with pork belly or pulled jackfruit and throw in some Korean tacos for some added crunch. Japan meets Mexico in their inventive sushi burritos and Asia claps hands with the West with cheeseburger spring rolls, mac and cheese dumplings, banh mi sandwiches and a chicken karaage burger. The sushi rolls have not been forgotten with a beautiful selection of flavours and textures (hello vegan cheeken teriyaki roll!). Gluten-free, vegan and vegetarian options are available.
And the fun doesn't stop at the food. Their drinks range from their signature cocktails served in fruit, classic cocktails, international wines, traditional Japanese sake and Korean soju. There's even kombucha cocktails or slow-pressed juice if it's a school night!
