The team behind esteemed Gold Coast venue Rick Shores delivered their second culinary concept Happy Valley in mid-2018. The stylish multi-faceted eatery sits on Warner Street in Fortitude Valley and takes on modern Chinese cuisine. Head chef Jake Pregnell (ex-Rick Shores) casts an eye across China’s distinct and varied regions to compile a menu that incorporates scrumptious servings of dim sum and yum cha, as well as traditional dishes given an imaginative spin. Little Valley is situated in a new laneway precinct occupying the old Troubadour laneway, and boasts an 80-patron capacity restaurant and an upstairs bar and beer garden area with space for 40 more and a private dining area. A minimalist and sophisticated aesthetic encompasses the interior, making use of the building’s heritage elements to blend modern and historic. The bar serves up a concise array of dim sum and raw bar snacks to enjoy with your drink of choice, while a drink selection anchored by more than 100 wines keeps thirsts quenched.
