New Eats: Torafuku

August 14, 2015

1Food truck Le Tigre‘s long been a favourite for satisfying all manner of umami cravings, so we’re pleased chefs Celment Chan and Steve Kuan have opted to open a brick-and-mortar extension of their business: Torafuku.

The menu reads like a fan-fic fantasy crossover episode of all our favourite Asian flavours. Korean gochujang pepper paste and mango-glazed chicken wings are topped with ramen crumble, brown fried rice is kicked up with prawns, chilli and rich chicken livers, and the "vegetarians only" crispy puff of deep-fried mochi meets its soul mate of fried mozzarella cheese beneath a blanket of smoked mayo sauce (yeah, it’s Triple X). Cocktails from Max Borrowman, formerly of the Fairmont Pacific Rim, will frequently include his DIY kombucha, while décor by Scott and Scott architects (Kin Kao) adds a Scandi-industrial atmosphere that functionally backdrops serious eating.
