Lifestyle bistro HUE adds inspired cocktails and elevated bar bites to its fun contemporary modern Thai offerings.

If you’re not familiar with HUE, this fun little contemporary lifestyle bistro on Tyrwhitt Road has been making waves with its cheeky take on Thai-inspired cuisine that’s particularly popular among the younger set. The classic Thai claypot shrimp and vermicelli that just happens to also include bacon? A Belgian moules (mussels) pot, but bursting with flavours of Thai-style curry? How about barramundi done en papillote the French way, but infused with fresh Thai herbs and spices?

You’ll find these, and more, at HUE.


Continuing its iconoclastic approach to Thai flavours, HUE recently upped the ante by introducing a bar bites section that’s good as sharing appetisers to bulk up a meal, or for snacks to go with a similarly newly-launched cocktail menu.

We loved the Char Moo, their version of moo ping, which stuck to the tried and true with its sticks of well-grilled, quality minced pork. Thai Thai Fries sees classic French Fries tossed in tom yum spice and accompanied with a trio of Thai-inspired dipping sauces, while Chicken Nest is buffalo wings done two ways – mid wings battered and fried, then tossed either in a Thai spice mix or drenched in a sweet chilli aioli, and served atop a bed of crispy crackers made from deep-frying shredded popiah skin.

These are dangerously moreish.


Extremely fancy and Instagram-worthy is Egg-e-egg-egg, which essentially are Thai-flavoured Scotch eggs but made with bite-sized quail eggs. And if you love shrimp, there’s Prawn Me Softly. These are soft shell prawns that have been breaded and deep-fried to scrumptious perfection, especially when paired with lime aioli.

For something more substantial? Mama Mia is Thai mama noodles served with a bounty of seafood and homemade pork meatballs. It’s good for lining the tummy if you’re expecting a big night out.

Speaking of which, there are the new cocktails from HUE. Among them is The BKK, which sees the classic Negroni spiked with chilli padi and kaffir lime, while Kingdom of Ayutthaya is a no-nonsense Martini with a hint of coriander, cutely served out of a quaint saucepot. The Thai Elixir is surprisingly serious, a smoky whisky sour with hints of roselle and ginger.

But the younger customers that form the bulk of HUE’s clientele are more likely to opt for Bubble Pop!, a clarified Pina Colada that comes with the visual spectacle of a massive bubble that you pop to release more aromas, while hallyu fans are most definitely going to order LaLisa, a tribute to Lisa from BLACKPINK that’s a twist on the Cosmopolitan, which, of course, comes pink from the use of raspberry and cranberry.

Colour me surprised, HUE.
