Eating Out: Su Life

Oh my gosh! Somewhere new to share with you! OK, Su Life isn't actually new at all. I get takeaway from there all the time. Su Life used to be known as Huo Fo, and was literally five minutes from my house. Then they closed for a while and reopened as Su Life, about 10 minutes from my house. As mentioned, I get takeaway from there a lot, but I don't often actually eat there. One Sunday, after mattress and food processor shopping, Mum and I decided to stop by for lunch as it was just around the corner. Unfortunately their menu isn't online, so I don't have prices to hand.

Su Life has an extensive list of drinks. It was a hot day, so I got this Plum and Kumquat Iced Tea, which was very refreshing by very sweet!

A must for any visit to Su Life is their Pan-Fried Dumplings, which are exceptionally yummy and have a great sauce on them!

Mum ordered her favourite, Spicy Crispy Chicken. This is a pretty famous dish around Brisbane. The mock chicken is crispy and it is in a sweet and spicy sauce. Sometimes it is spicier than others. I like to nibble on a bit of this, too much and it gets too spicy for me. But it also has celery and cashews in it, which are my favourite part. It is pictured here with the rice and green tea we also got (how cute is the tea cup?).

I decided to try something new, and went with the Eggplant in Veggie Oyster Sauce. I obviously picked out all the capsicum. When this dish was hot, it was really really yummy. Though the eggplant went a bit funny as it cooled down. Probably better for sharing so everyone can gobble it up while it is still steaming.

    1. I am a big fan of dumplings. These are currently the best vegan dumplings in Brisbane since the closure of Kuan Yin.

  5. Su Life is my favourite! You actually listed almost exactly the order we get every time. The pan-fried dumplings, spicy crispy chicken, eggplant in veggie-oyster sauce...but we also usually get the "calamari" too. So yummy. Now I'm hungry.

    1. I don't think I have had the calamari before! There are a lot of things I haven't tried there, I tend to get the same thing.
