The Place

In creating new Pazhou haunt Flambé, Justin Wong – along with his partners – decided to utilize their business prowess and connections, which they cultivated running a wine import company. Their goal? To offer the burgeoning Pazhou area top-notch oysters and steak from overseas.

Conveniently located along a major thoroughfare that runs through Pazhou, Flambé seems to have struck a chord with the local expat community. On a Friday evening when we visit, the eatery is packed with English-speaking patrons.

The restaurant accommodates roughly a dozen tables and a bar on the first floor, while the second floor accommodates private rooms that are ideal for wine tastings or company gatherings. 

The Food

The bill of fare here is still taking shape, but there is a good range of scrumptious edibles available, including pastas, salads, soups, steaks, New Zealand mussels and snacks.

Oysters here vary from batch to batch, depending on what’s being imported. When we visit, North American varieties such as Canadian ‘pink pearl’ (RMB21/115/200 per one, six or a dozen) and ‘kusshi,’ (RMB24/130/225) are on offer, and they are as fresh and juicy as it gets.

To wash away the salty, aquatic flavors, Flambé pours several fairly-priced Australian white wines. Prefer a glass of red? Your options are abundant here.

Moving on to steaks: Flambé offers tender cuts of Triple-A Canadian beef, primarily rib eye and short rib (RMB198 each), both of which are served with veggies and mustard on the side.

The Vibe

With a contemporary and minimalistic setting, Flambé offers patrons a casual and relaxing ambiance – perfect for a romantic rendezvous or an intimate dinner with close friends. Its stylish furnishings declare that it is a place of uncompromising taste.
