Winter in Asia at The Emerson with restaurant Susie Wong

The Emerson Rooftop is known as the place to be on one of Melbourne’s perfect summer days, but its latest menu launch and Asian-inspired decor is here to remind you why it’s the perfect place to see and be seen all year round. The delights of Asia In Winter is happening now at The Emerson through until the 28th of August.
Asia In Winter sees the culinary delights of the head chef of the Windsor favourite bar and restaurant, Susie Wong, matched with winter-inspired cocktails. It will get you in the mood to dance those winter blues away. My plus one and I were invited down last week to sample the new menu and cocktails at the extravagant launch party.

 Throughout the night we were presented with a selection of tasty delights, such as the melt-in-your-mouth Soft Shell Crab Banh Mi through to my personal favourite, as always, the Pork Belly. You just have to try it.
There were two green tea based cocktails on offer, and I definitely had my fair share of those. Sunday afternoons are my favourite at The Emerson and I look forward to a few more come the week’s end.
If you have not had the chance to visit The Emerson yet it stands on the bones of the infamous Market Hotel on Commercial Road in Prahran, resurrecting the hotspot and securing itself as Melbourne’s premier venue through its many awards and accolades. The roof is fully enclosed and stacked with heaters so you need not worry about the chill.
