Aiming to evoke the feeling of carefree summer nights and overseas adventures, The Terrace by E'cco is the latest offering from Philip Johnson and Mary Randles — sibling and next door neighbour to the acclaimed E'cco Bistro.
The all-weather al fresco space is set to be a go-to for casual, Southeast Asian share feasts, cocktail-matched snack sessions and plenty in between. On the menu, you'll find plates such as steamed BBQ pork buns ($8 for two), coconut-infused massaman beef curry ($28), pork san choy bow ($16) and a green papaya salad laced with mint and nahm jim ($9). Choose your own pan-Asian grazing adventure, or put yourself in expert hands with one of two affordable 'feed me' chef's selections ($40 and $55).
Meanwhile, the bar's showing off strong tropical leanings of its own, with upbeat signature cocktails like the Sleeping Tiger ($20)— a blend of vodka, elderflower, bitters, mandarin and egg white — and the Beijing Bellini ($16), teaming lychee liqueur with prosecco.
And, just like on holidays, you'll find plenty of excuses here to treat yourself without breaking the bank — a 4–6pm happy hour (Tuesday through Sunday) promises $1 oysters (with drink purchase), $10 cocktails and a selection of beers, ciders and spirits at just $6 a pop.
