Acland Street’s main drag has seen its fair share of Chinese restaurants come and go over recent years, but nothing this side of Lau’s Family Kitchen has upped St Kilda’s reputation like Rabbit Blues. It’s stylish and cool, with interiors by Techne and design by Can I Play, and the food is incredible, driven by the energy, experience and passion of a firecracker chef known affectionately as ‘Mr. Earthquake.’ David Sum has over 40 years of experience in top Asian restaurants in Singapore, Switzerland in Australia, including Melbourne’s Flower Drum. The menu he has created at Rabbit Blues showcases his refined skill, the breadth of classic Chinese cuisine and the excitement of contemporary Asian fusion. From steamed Mongolian buns with roasted duck resembling art exhibits to char siu noodles in broth so pristine you don’t want to disturb it, Rabbit Blues offers a staggering range of dishes so exquisite they’re hard to describe. Just try it, we’ll bet you struggle for words too.
Lovely staff, very friendly and helpful. We had the Longevity Banquet but changed one entree for the Duck buns, no problem doing so....food was sensational, very fresh flavours and plenty of food for the four of us. We also added pork fried rice to our order. Wasabi mayo prawns were divine but not very hot wasabi. Highly recommend!
