The Smoking Panda New Menu

Since The Smoking Panda bar opened a year ago, it has established its reputation as one of Sydney’s best bourbon bars, stocking over 80 different expressions among other spirits. The bar above the Coronation Hotel celebrated its first birthday this week with a reminder of the fun times to be had at this Sydney CBD gem.

The signature Doghnut Martini was served on arrival and the birthday event introduced new additions to the drinks menu such as the Negroni and the Old Fashioned, both on tap.

Bourbon infusions were on taste such as the Cherry Chocolate Knob (Creek), the Berry Basil Buffalo (Trace), Makin Bourbon (Maker’s Mark) and the Two Smoking Barrels with Chilli and Lime.

The food by consultant chef Danny Russo is still very much in theme with the quirky take on pan-Asian style eats with appetising dishes such as the Bang Bang Salad, Numbing Prawns with crushed prawn chips, and a variety of Dumplings and Pot Stickers including the excellent Soup Dumplings.

The Smoking Panda’s first birthday celebration was held on Tuesday 16 June 2015.
