Mr Hizola’s is a modern Cantonese restaurant in the heart of Burleigh Heads. The vibrant flavour-packed menu is designed to share – it’s extensive, so be sure to ease into it with a bowl of housemade prawn crackers and a chilli-laced Hong Kong Spice cocktail before you make any decisions. For simplicity, the dishes are split into categories – from the sea, from the land, from the coop, from the field, from the garden, and noodles and rice. There’s also a hefty dim sum selection with everything from wontons to potstickers and shumai. As for the bigger plates, think whole fried fish with Szechuan chilli sauce, Hunan-style beef short rib and chicken lo mein. Mr Hizola’s toothsome menu is underlined by a tight collection of wines, a bunch of bottled and tapped Asian beers and a fun series of cocktails.
