Award-winning Li Bai Cantonese Restaurant has made a name for itself locally, and is renowned for serving only the best in quality. Now, a new concept is slated to take Singapore by storm. Full of Luck Club 福乐, a brainchild of the same team behind Li Bai Cantonese Restaurant, offers the same uncompromised product quality – a hallmark of the established “Li Bai” brand – but with a progressive and contemporary take on authentic Cantonese cuisine.
Full of Luck Club is the latest in chic casual Cantonese dining – serving up classic cuisine, treated with reverence, skill and artistry. Reaching out to a younger generation of food lovers who enjoy authentic and high quality Cantonese fare within a modern contemporary setting, Full of Luck Club will offer a similar gastronomical and service experience as Li Bai Cantonese Restaurant.
“Full of Luck Club 福乐 is a modern Cantonese kitchen serving comfort food and lots of good luck. The English name of the restaurant, Full of Luck Club, was derived from the Chinese name, 福乐 (pin yin pronunciation = fu le, Cantonese pronunciation = fook lok), which translates to mean good luck and happiness. Every meal at the restaurant will end with a fortune cookie and a special little something to send customers on their way”, says Lydia Tjhia, Co-Founder of Full of Luck Club.
UPDATED TIMELESS CANTONESE FARE
On top of incorporating “Li Bai” classics into its menu, Full of Luck Club also serves
authentic dishes inspired by Cantonese cuisine. Offerings include updated timeless
dishes including a selection of dim sum, Hakka Crispy Kurobuta Pork Belly, and
Crispy Aromatic Duck. For the seafood lover, Full of Luck Club’s menu also features
options such as King Prawn Crispy Noodles, and Sweet Mint and Lime Cod.
One of Full of Luck Club’s highlights is its Bao Bar window concept, situated in the
vicinity of Holland Village MRT’s entrance, which offers a delectable selection of
steamed and fried baos for patrons on-the-go. Also available for dine-in, whet your
bao cravings with choices such as the Salted Egg Yolk Prawn bao made with lettuce,
fried curry leaves, crushed peanuts, and birds eye chilli for that kick, or the Braised
Pork Belly bao made with lettuce, pickled lotus root, fried shallots, birds eye chilli,
coriander and crushed peanuts for that added crunch.
DRINKING THE CHINESE WAY
Full of Luck Club features a well-varied bar programme, offering creative Asianinspired
cocktails, wines, and a good selection of craft beers from Hong Kong Beer
Company. For beer enthusiasts, have a go at Gambler’s Gold, Dragon’s Back, or go
authentic with a bottle of Hong Kong Beer. Over the last decade, Asian cuisine
became one of contemporary cooking’s biggest influences. Now, Asian-inspired
libations are no exception. Bridging the gap between East and West flavours, Full of
Luck Club features tasty Asian-inspired cocktails such as Wing Chun Kick – a
cocktail creation made with dried chrysanthemum-infused rum, goji berries, and
topped with fresh lime juice and mint, and Good Beginnings – a concoction made
with Shaoxing Hua Diao, topped with cranberry juice, soda, and dried sour plum.
DESIGNED AFTER POET LI BAI
Located in the heart of Holland Village, the 97-seater is a fresh and contemporary
interpretation of classic Cantonese restaurants, with a design vibe that fuses Asian
heritage with modernity and a sense of creative flair. The two-storey establishment
features an open kitchen where patrons can watch the chefs in action. The upper
floor houses comfortable seating in a modern and casual setting, and an enclosed
dining and bar area for greater privacy.
“Offering a fun, fresh and vibrant environment, Full of Luck Club’s design concept is
a true reflection of the life of poet Li Bai, who as a true bon vivant, dedicated his life
to writing poems that celebrated the pleasures of friendship, and the joys of drinking
wine over palatable authentic Chinese food”, says Alexys Tjhia, Co-Founder of
Full of Luck Club.
As in its name, Full of Luck Club incorporates elements of fortune, luck, and
prosperity into the interior and design of the space – including a two-metre tall
Fortune Cat that greets guests at the stairway.
THE FULL OF LUCK BAR
Come June, Full of Luck Club will be home to a new watering hole that will take the
shape of a private indoor and rooftop bar, and is only accessible via the back door
along a secluded alley. The ideal hangout place for late night drinkers, the soon-tobe
opened speakeasy will feature an expanded bar programme as well as creative
bar food offerings.
