Pan-Asian cuisine gets a temporary kick at Ibu Susu Bar & Kitchen, a happening new addition to Monkey Forest Road. No attention to detail was spared here from the large windows sporting wooden shutters to the gorgeous blue textiles and handmade ceramics from Japan. Co-owner and head bartender Ketut draws on his years of experience working behind some of the best bars in Melbourne to create dreamy concoctions like the Salted Caramel Espresso Martini and Pandan Colada. Chef Nicolas Lazzaroni of Settimo Cielo collaborated on the menu, which features contemporary dishes like the Butterfish Sashimi, Crispy Soft Shell Crab with basil, and Roast Pork Belly with shaved apple and coconut salad.
