The drinks list includes cocktails named after mythical characters from Chinese folk lore with Cantonese flavours at their core. Cocktails feature in-house, tailor-made ingredients, syrups and infusions that put a signature Chinese tiki spin on the list. Take the Nuwa, goddess with the tail of a snake was said to have sculpted mankind out of mud with her hands. The laborious nature of the task led her to create sex and marriage so humans could begin ‘creating’ themselves. The cocktail has carrot infused Fino sherry, Cocchi Americano, Lemon, Ginger, Honey, Maggi Bitters

A 300-strong wine list has a strong focus on wine regions that lend themselves to Cantonese food, including Loire Valley whites, Austrian and German whites, red and white Burgundy, and Rhone Valley reds. The list also extends to a solid range of more familiar Australian wine styles. Beers and ciders are also represented as well as a selection of delicate loose-leaf Chinese teas, infusions and tisanes.

Jade Temple is set to open for lunch in the Sydney CBD on Monday, 3 July.
