There are a handful of Gold Coast restaurateurs who we always know, without a doubt, will nail whatever they put their hands on. Morgan Walsh and her crew is one such bunch. The same team that brought us Bonita Bonita, BonBon bar and, more recently, Poke Poke, have welcomed yet another characterful member into the family. FuFu has completely transformed a highly visual building smack in the middle of Mermaid Beach. Craftily bringing their fun one-of-a-kind and in-your-face design skills to create a casual restaurant unlike any other on the Coast; think: moody lightly, cheeky signage, greenery goodness and pink velvety booth seats, all wrapped up in a circular dining room. Outside, they’ve gone for a Palm Springs feel and we already sense this garden that will be making this welcoming joint Insta-famous in a flash.
And that’s before we get to the food. FuFu’s modern Asian eats are truly drool-worthy. Think soy and sesame salmon sashimi; Vietnamese pancake with prawn and pork; barramundi with sticky pork belly and apple salad; and a yellow prawn curry with roti that we reckon is one of the best on the Coast. Wash it all down with their curated list of exciting and ever-changing cocktails and you've got yourself an epic night out.
