Located in Piper Street Kyneton, Fook Shing brings modern and vibrant south-east Asian cuisine to life in a historic gold rush era pub.
Fook Shing is named after the infamous Chinese Detective who was posted to the goldfields during Victoria’s Gold Rush. A policeman originally based in Melbourne’s Chinatown, Fook was the go-to plain clothes detective for any issues related to Chinese in central Victoria and even stayed in the pub during his time in the area!
“Send Fook Shing” was a regular message from Victoria’s Police Commissioner.
A colourful period in Victoria’s history, it seemed only fitting to link the cuisine and the person with the place.
