Setting foot in the bustling hub of Nesco, the Tham Brothers are here to make Pan-Asian affairs accessible one Foo at a time.

With authentic flavours and a variety of Asian dishes, Foo Nesco opened its doors on 25th October 2022.

The restaurant, featuring indoor and outdoor seating, boasts of a decor inspired by the ‘Neo-Japonism’ style, a more oblique interpretation of the popular traditional design. Bhavini Johar, the creative brain behind the interiors, has used natural materials and organic shapes along with larger-than-life elements that elevate the five senses through her design that lend grandeur and scale to the dining experience. The guests are welcomed with a Big Red Door which opens to a ceiling adorned with Chinese lanterns lending a warm glow to the concrete backdrop. The show stopper is the large-scale lighting made from bamboo & brass embellishing the indoor & outdoor space designed by Mianzi for Foo. The restaurant will also have cosy Booth-style dining, a Private Dining room with a private Bar and outdoor seating under the Cherry Blossom Tree all adorned in velvet, leather and Asian florals.

From the classic dishes that continue to be crowd favourites, the menu will also feature dishes like Nikkei Avocado Uramaki; Peruvian Lobster Roll; Spicy Miso Broccoli; Tenderloin Chilly, Leeks & Onions; Foo Blue Butter Japanese Fried Rice; La Yu Ban Mein Noodles. Taking into account the consumer base of vegan and plant-based food consumers, Foo has introduced some delicious dishes like the Not a Chicken in Chilly Hot Bean; Forest Mushroom Cantonese Style; Crispy Tofu Sweet Chilly sauce; and Plant Protein Dumpling. And lastly, end your meal with one of the most instagrammable and elegant desserts - Mount Foo- Ji or choose gluten-free ice creams such as Mango, Black Sesame, Japanese Matcha, Kaffir Lime or indulge in vegan & gluten-free desserts like Black Gold And Berry, a Truffle Dark Chocolate Cake with Raspberry Sorbet.

The restaurant has a Swanky L-Shaped bar with red-stained teak wood shelves juxtaposed with natural stone-clad walls and is accessible both outdoors and indoors. The menu includes Foo signatures such as the Foo King and the Food Queen, both one-of-a-kind vodka-based cocktails that will leave you wanting more. For a refreshing twist, Kokum Club, a gin-based cocktail with coconut liqueur and kokum syrup would be a perfect fit. The elaborate menu extends to a large number of Single Malts and Gins, both international and homegrown and a variety of Sake. Your experience at Foo is incomplete without Foo Brew, an in-house rice beer that is freshly brewed, an absolute crowd favourite!

Speaking about the launch, Keenan Tham- Managing Director & Co-founder, Pebble Street Hospitality said “We are delighted to expand Foo to yet another location. We wanted to make Foo more accessible to our patrons across the city and NESCO is a perfect location as it's visibly becoming a Hub with other larger food giants having a presence in the area”.

Foo believes in constantly reinventing and changing with times, tastes, and demographic. So if you are looking for lunch with a colleague or catching up for a drink post work or even bringing your family out for dining, Foo NESCO is the place to be!
