Ling Ling

Ling Ling’s – Fortitude Valley’s newest late-night bar and eatery – delivers a lively take on the South Asian street-food and Hong Kong’s bustling nightclub scene. The venue’s interior boasts plush gold-trimmed booths, hanging red Chinese lanterns, arcade games, a pool table, vibrant neon lights and an eye-catching mural feature wall, while the kitchen is open late serving contemporary pan-Asian street eats. Small plates include king prawn and scallop toast, steamed barbecue-pork fun buns, fluffy bao buns, cheeseburger spring rolls (an homage to the Heya staple) sweet-chilli karaage chicken, and three kinds of dumplings, while larger plates such as stir-fried eggplant, crispy fried chicken, braised pork belly, lamb ribs and sweet-and-sour tempura king prawns are available until 10:00 pm. Ling Ling’s bar is amply stocked with a range of libations, ranging from beer (tap and bottled varieties encompassing Australian craft and Asian brews), an 11-strong wine list (available by glass and bottle) and signature cocktails – but groups are advised to chip in for one of the teapot or soup-bowl cocktails, which are perfect for couples and groups of three or more, respectively.
