A few weekend’s ago, #NZBloggers and I hosted our Xmas Soiree at Wu & You in Mount Eden. This was our last #BRUNCHCLUB for 2019, so we celebrated it in style!
Wu & You are known for their exciting, dynamic and delicious Asian-Fusion dishes, and on the weekends, they offer Bottomless Bubbles and Brunch🍾🍾 Prior to the event, we loved the sound of their WFC Burger with Wu fried chicken, kaffir lime mayo, lettuce and coriander, the Five Spiced Pork Hawker Roll with hoisin and star anise glaze, Malaysian slaw, fried garlic and peanuts, and the Chili Scrambled Eggs with spicy mayo, fresh herbs, crispy shallots and toasted sourdough. YUM. Check out the rest of their menu here.
On the day, we were seated in their outdoor courtyard and had this to ourselves! We priced our tickets at $40 which included Wu & You’s Bottomless Bubbles & Brunch (usually $49), sweet treats during the event (like Sweet Little Favors Christmas cookies and Krispy Kreme doughnuts), plus a FABULOUS Goodie Bag to take home at the end. We also donated $5 of each ticket to the Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand.

✨ S P A R K L E S ✨ was the THEME and there was a Prize for Best Dressed!🎉 Susan of Otti & Olli messaged us on Instagram saying she would like to donate a Gingerbread House for our event – check it out below! Congratulations to Belle for winning Best Dressed!
For their Bottomless Bubbles & Brunch, Wu & You offer a variety of dishes, and were happy to cater for our vegan and gluten free guests. Check out Genie‘s fantastic photos below.
Here are some of the dishes we enjoyed:
Amber ordered the Green Papaya Salad with shaved coconut, tofu, peanuts, lychee, red chili and nuoc cham
Many of us (including me) ordered the WFC Burger with Wu fried chicken, lettuce, coriander, kafir lime mayonnaise and a side of skinny fries
Emily ordered the Beef Cheek Rendang with coriander, kaffir lime, fried curry leaves and roti
Belle ordered the Eggs Benedict with streaky bacon, poached eggs, edamame, lemongrass, hollandaise and gluten free brioche
Laura ordered the Eggs Benedict as well, but swapped out the streaky bacon for avocado. Love the generous serving!
Emma ordered the Chicky Bao with Wu fried chicken, lettuce and kimchi tartare. YUM!
Tash ordered the Vegan Tofu Taco… stay tuned as this dish will be on their menu soon!
