We’re Serving Up All The Deets On Brisbane’s Newest Dining Precinct

Asian food makes miso happy.

Matcha, bubble tea, hot dogs and kawaii- oh my! Calling all Asian food enthusiasts, it’s time to get ready for Brisbane’s hottest new dining precinct. Fudo Dori is taking over the Elizabeth Street Arcade and serving up all things Asian in the arcade with new restaurants and bars to enjoy.


Literally translating to food street, Fudo Dori is set to launch four new restaurants in May/June, starting with the opening of Lu Cha Kitchen and Bar today. Koto Sanpo, Hoto Dogu, and Amai Kawaii are set to join Lu Cha in the time to come. Fudo Dori is also set to launch even more new spots so keep your eyes peeled for Na Bangkok’s spicy Thai splendour, yakiniku barbecue, Chinese hot pot, and izakaya.


With a stunning brick wall interior that touches the ceiling and the floor with black accents. The ceilings are adorned with funky paintings that depict fierce women surrounded by blooming lotus flowers. Stylish and sleek, it’s the place to be for indulging in delicious flavours that Asia has to offer.

With a hot take on the traditional Chinese tea house, Lu Cha literally means green tea in Mandarin and is combining East and West with their tea-inspired kitchen and bar. They’re spilling the tea into most of their dishes to create a one-of-a-kind dining experience, curating dishes that are infused with tea for your enjoyment such as the roast chicken with dipping sauces fused with tea and the wok-fried beef with tea and oyster sauce. For drinks, choose from a range of bubble teas, crafty cocktails that combine tea and alcohol for a truly unique drinking experience along with non-alcoholic beverages.

Beautifully translating to ‘a peaceful stroll around Kyoto,’ this authentic Japanese house will take you straight to the city of Kyoto with their menu, inspired by the old and the new. The true star of the show is matcha, with their matcha-inspired sweet treats ready to make you green with envy such as the matcha soft serve, matcha lattes, frappes, and floats! There’s also a selection of traditional Japanese dishes that have a Western twist, such as the Teriyaki Salmon spaghetti, and the pork katsu and karaage chicken sandwiches.

Hoto Dogu

It’s Japanese for hotdogs! Fudo Dori has the perfect little hotdog stand reminiscent of the stands in New York but with Japanese flair as Hoto Dogu serves up quick and easy bites for those of us who are always on the go. Simple meets sophisticated with old school hotdogs paired with Japanese flavours that are sure to tantalize the tastebuds.

Amai Kawaii

Combining cute and sweet to hit all the right spots, Amai Kawaii’s dessert depot is the perfect way to end your tour around Fudo Dori. Not much is known about the menu, but Fudo Dori promises that it will have Japanese desserts to treat yo self to.
