Fancy Hank’s brings the smoke to Oriental Teahouse

Oriental Teahouse is joining forces with Fancy Hank’s Barbecue Restaurant for a smoky cook-up


The collaboration will reimagine American BBQ meets authentic Chinese eats in a five-course dinner on Wednesday, 23 October. Tickets are only $65 each and the dinner will be hosted at Oriental Teahouse in South Yarra.


Expect a modern fusion of flavours that pits together one of Melbourne’s finest barbecue joints with the masters of hand-made dumplings.


From smoked pork xiao long bao to a 14-hour smoked brisket steamed bun, refined techniques and quality produce from both specialty venues create an epic collaboration like no other.


For an additional $20, guests can match each course to the perfect cold brew and enjoy free-flowing ale available on the night.


The five-course dinner will feature:


Xiao long bao with pork broth, pulled pork and apple black vinegar

Char siu smoked and fried pork ribs with spring onion and peanuts

14-hour smoked brisket buns with BBQ sauce and pickles with hot sauce

Golden tempura, smoked eggplant with spring onions and wonton crisps

Boudin sausage and pork fried dumplings with Fancy Hank’s peach and jalapeño sauce


Live music will kick-off later on in the night, so guests can extend their evening with a drink at Oriental Teahouse’s resident drinking den, Zhou Zhou, from 8pm onwards.


Fancy Hank’s specialise in slow-cooked American BBQ, cooked in an in-house two-tonne custom-built smoker, and are famous for their house-made delicious sauces from award-winning chefs.


Oriental Teahouse is a household name that provides a world-class teahouse experience that is authentically Chinese but with a modern twist. The space encompasses a day-to-night culinary experience that does not sacrifice the essence of a traditional Chinese teahouse.
