23 OLIVER LANE, MEL­BOURNE 9639 5777 LUCYLIUS.COM.AU Lucy Liu loi­ters in a blue­stone al­ley, her name in red neon.

From out­side, this eat­ing and drink­ing house has a night­club vibe. But in­side, Lucy’s come-on is bril­liant pan-asian fare with a crack­ing drinks list.

King­fish sashimi with toasted co­conut and lime is glo­ri­ous, as is the soft-shell pan­cake roll, amped up with spicy hoi sin sauce.

The Korean-style crispy pork hock is Lucy’s sig­na­ture dish for good rea­son. You can hear the snap as you drive a knife through it, re­veal­ing pale porky meat in­side ready for wrap­ping in pan­cakes.

Pricey? Nah. Flex­i­ble? You bet. ■ Must-eat dish Kore­anstyle crispy pork hock ■ Cui­sine Mod­ern Asian ■ Chefs Michael Lam­bie & Zac Cribbes ■ Price $$ ■ Book­ings Yes ■ Open Lunch & din­ner daily ■ In­sta­gram @lucyli­u_mel­bourne
