Not only does Shizusan Shophouse & Bar have exquisite Pan-Asian cuisine but they have exotic, Asian flavored cocktails to go with it. The cocktail menu focuses on classics with an Asian twist using typical ingredients like kaffir lime, and some use of exotic oolong and butterfly pea flower teas as well. There’s a focus on contemporary presentation and even a colonial-inspired twist to the classic Old Fashioned called Genie in a Bottle. An Asian Hair of the Dog called Cocky Rooster which like a Michelada has vodka, celery, salt, topped with a pint of Beer and bird’s eye chilies for the final Asian finish…
Chairman Mao’s Negroni is another top recommendation, and so is the delicate yet precise Hattori Hanzo where the butterfly pea flower lends magic to this colour-changing drink. There’s then a take on the classic Lynchburg Lemonade here called Saigon Lemonade; the Piss Alley Cat named after Tokyo’s popular drinking street made famous by Quentin Tarantino’s visits, and a DIY Island Tea where guests can assemble their own potent version of the Long Island Iced Tea.
The bar captures an apothecary vibe with potion bottles of seasonal infusions, aptly called ‘Moonshine & Hooch’ on the menu, containing vodka, gin, tequila, rum and whiskey – the bartenders will make these depending on availability and changing winds. Fruits like strawberries, plums, apple and spices like star anise, peppercorn will see the light of day. Considering that it’s an all day, the evenings will soon have Yum Cha Hours from 4 PM – 7 PM with unlimited dim sums and pots of Asian teas so stay tuned!
