First Look: LuLu Asian Kitchen in Olivette
LuLu Seafood and Dim Sum has gone fast-casual with its first LuLu Asian Kitchen location, now open at 9626 Olive Blvd., in Olivette. As Sauce reported in July, another LuLu Asian Kitchen location will soon open at 9737 Manchester Road in Rock Hill, with more locations in the works.
Popular staples from Lulu Seafood and Dim Sum will be rotating entrees at Lulu Asian Kitchen, along with more traditional Chinese dishes and some exclusive to the new concept, like the caramelized bourbon chicken, which makes use of the new kitchen’s grill.
Entrees can be ordered in different combinations as bowls, plates or platters, or folded into Asian burritos with rice and toppings. There are also soups, salads and lighter to-go options like spring rolls and sushi. Fountain drinks are joined by a handful of beer and wine offerings.
“The quality is the same as the main location. We just have more limited options and faster service,” said co-founder Julia Li.
Lulu Asian Kitchen is open daily from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. There will be a grand opening event on Wednesday, Dec. 14 from 3 to 9 p.m. with free food and drink. Here’s a first look at what to expect from Olivette’s new fast-casual spot:
