The Terrace by E'cco
Southeast Asian fare, vibrant cocktails and a great value happy hour in an al fresco space.
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.
