I've been meaning to try the new addition to the Canberra cocktail lounge scene, Soju Girl, so on a recent trip, I grabbed the bestie and headed there for drinks and inadvertently had a second dinner.
Soju Girl is located right in the heart of Civic, housed in the Melbourne Building - with a dining room and bar area, perfect for grabbing a couple of drinks and having a chat (the full menu is still available in the bar area too!) With some cool Asian fusion plates and fun cocktails, I was keen to try it out.
So hard to pick from their extensive cocktail list - I wanted to try everything!
Even though I'd already had a dinner previously, I couldn't resist these fresh and addictively crispy lotus chips. They were so good! Perfect nibbles to have with drinks.
Soju Girl cocktail - korean soju, midori and house lemongrass syrup shaken with muddled lime and kiwifruit layered over cranberry juice - so fruity and delicious!!
Passionfruit and lychee martini
Tuna futomaki, seaweed salad, emulsions
The Concubine - Japanese shochu, umeshu and house ginger syrup shaken hard with fresh lime and eggwhite
I always, ALWAYS have room for dessert:
It had fruit in it so it was justified :P
I'll definitely be back next time I'm in town to try out more yummy cocktails!
