Located in the heart of Holland Village, the 97-seater is a fresh and contemporary interpretation of classic Cantonese restaurants, with a design vibe that fuses Asian heritage with modernity and a sense of creative flair. The two-storey establishment features an open kitchen where patrons can watch the chefs in action. The upper floor houses comfortable seating in a modern and casual setting, and an enclosed dining and bar area for greater privacy.

Award-winning Li Bai Cantonese Restaurant has made a name for itself locally, and is renowned for serving only the best in quality. Now, a new concept is slated to take Singapore by storm. Full of Luck Club 福乐, a brainchild of the same team behind Li Bai Cantonese Restaurant, offers the same uncompromised product quality – a hallmark of the established “Li Bai” brand – but with a progressive and contemporary take on authentic Cantonese cuisine.
Full of Luck Club is the latest in chic casual Cantonese dining – serving up classic cuisine, treated with reverence, skill and artistry. Reaching out to a younger generation of food lovers who enjoy authentic and high quality Cantonese fare within a modern contemporary setting, Full of Luck Club will offer a similar gastronomical and service experience as Li Bai Cantonese Restaurant.

On top of incorporating “Li Bai” classics into its menu, Full of Luck Club also serves authentic dishes inspired by Cantonese cuisine. Offerings include updated timeless dishes including a selection of dim sum, Hakka Crispy Kurobuta Pork Belly, and Crispy Aromatic Duck. For the seafood lover, Full of Luck Club’s menu also features options such as King Prawn Crispy Noodles, and Sweet Mint and Lime Cod.

Dim Sum
1. Stir-fried Radish Cake with X.O Sauce [Price: $6.80]

The radish cake is one of my favourite, a bit crisp at the outer and soft inside, XO Sauce made the taste more special compare than usual carrot cake.
Light Bites
2. Golden Sand Corn with Salted Egg Yolk [Price: $4.80]

The egg yolk flavour doesn’t have that thick and creamy kicks into the tastebud but it’s very addictive, one spoonfull is never enough.
3. Poached Wontons in Chilli Soy [Price: $7.20]
The wonton skin is so soft and the filling very generous, but i couldn’t really feel the meaty texture as i wish. It would be perfect if the filling contain more prawn and chicken/ pork meat.
4. Chili Glazed Fried Fermented Bean Paste Chicken Wings [Price: $8.00]
Another favourite during food tasting, the skin so crispy coated with rich flavour: sweet, sour and spicy. The chicken meat inside is so tender as well.
One of Full of Luck Club’s highlights is its Bao Bar window concept, situated in the vicinity of Holland Village MRT’s entrance, which offers a delectable selection of steamed and fried baos for patrons on-the-go. Also available for dine-in, whet your bao cravings with choices such as the Salted Egg Yolk Prawn bao made with lettuce, fried curry leaves, crushed peanuts, and birds eye chilli for that kick, or the Braised Pork Belly bao made with lettuce, pickled lotus root, fried shallots, birds eye chilli, coriander and crushed peanuts for that added crunch.

5. Kung Pao Fried Chicken [Price: $ 9.80 for 2]
Classic taste of spicy chicken, lettuce, dried chilli and crushed peanuts.

This bao is the bomb, i love this so much! The chicken are crispy on the outside and tender inside, the buns are super soft and the sauce is as tasty as i expected from kung pao. Recommended this dishes if you come here for the first time.

6. Braised Pork Belly [Price: $ 9.80 for 2]

Slow braised pork belly, lettuce, pickled lotus root, fried shallots, peanuts, coriander & bird’s eye chili.
Not a pork belly lover, so i just enjoyed the meat part and the sauce. The meat is quite juicy and tender.
7. Panko-crusted Portobello  [Price: $ 9.80 for 2]
Golden fried whole Portobello mushroom in teriyaki mayo sauce, carrot cabbage slaw & grilled pineapples.
Suprisingly, this is quite tasty too and suitable for vegetarian. The panko crusted portobello mushroom is so crispy and juicy at the same time. Love the sour which comes from grilled pinneaples.
For Bao order, you can mixed and match the bao that you want, any 2 for $9.80. They also have other bao flavour such as Salted Egg Yolk Prawn and Portuguese Pork Chop.

7. Crispy Aromatic Duck [Price: $35.00 for half and $70.00 for whole]

Crispy duck paired with hoisin sauce, cucumber, shredded spring onions and steamed Chinese pancakes.
This is the wrap concept duck dishes, get the chinese pancake (is similar to “popiah skin”), then add the sauce, cripsy duck (don’t forget the crispy skin) then add cucumber and spring onions. I like the crispy duck skin and tender meat.
8. Braised Spinach Beancurd [Price: $16.00]
House made spinach egg tofu, finished with braised mushroom and dried scallops.
Can you see how special this dishes made? It remains me of the special dishes made by celebrity chef. The braised mushroom on top resembling the crown. This is the comforting food, the spinach blends really well with the tofu, the egg tofu so soft and fragrant, the dried scallop sauce is so savoury. 
9. Spicy Stuffed Yong Tau Fu [Price: $16.00]

Assorted vegetables and tofu stuffed with minced pork, seasoned with spiced whole fermented bean paste.
It was the first time for me trying yong tau foo without feeling bland and boring. This homemade yong tau fu is very tasty, suprisingly the eggplant stuffed with meat is my favourite, the texture of the eggplant is still there and mix perfectly with minced pork. 
10. Hakka Crispy Kurobuta Pork Belly [Price: $18.00]
Kurobuta pork belly marinated with fermented bean curd, Chinese wine and signature fragrant spices.
Not a fan of pork belly, but i enjoyed the crispy and meat part with their special sauce.
11. Moonlight Truffle Beef Hor Fun [Price: $20.00]
Sliced US prime boneless short over wok fried hor fun, black garlic truffle glaze and onsen egg.

This special beef horfun is another comforting food during tasting. The onsen egg omg! And the beef slices are super tender.


12. Hokey-Pokey Ice Cream Bao [Price: 1 for $6.00]
They also have other menu such as Claypot Rice and Cocktails selection.
Come June, Full of Luck Club will be home to a new watering hole that will take the shape of a private indoor and rooftop bar, and is only accessible via the back door along a secluded alley. The ideal hangout place for late night drinkers, the soon-tobe opened speakeasy will feature an expanded bar programme as well as creative bar food offerings.

The unique thing: every meal at the restaurant will end with a fortune cookie and a special little something to send customers on their way. Such a sweet gesture from the owner of restaurant.
